Scaling Technology and Infrastructure to Support the Common Core

Recorded on May 13, 2014

Technology is more than purchasing the latest device; the infrastructure must be in place to support teaching and learning.

In this archived webinar, participants explore tools to assess their site’s technology readiness, examine the various costs associated with use and ownership, and plan for immediate needs and prepare for the future.

Grace Calisi, Research Associate in WestEd’s Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) West, and Mike Casey, Director of Technology, Del Mar (CA) Union School District, discuss:

  • Assessing your site’s technology readiness. Does your site have the infrastructure, capacity, and commitment to support your technology?
  • Examining all costs associated with use, implementation, and scaling. Will you be able to sustain your purchase over time?
  • Planning for more than online testing. Is there a clear plan for effectively using technology for teaching and learning?
  • Plan and prepare for growth. Will your technology adapt to your changing needs?

This archived webinar is hosted by Grace Calisi and Meg Livingston Asensio from the Regional Educational Laboratory West at WestEd.
