Twilla,
I have enjoyed following your blogging over this past semester. I especially liked your comment about your use of technology being a drop in the bucket prior to this class. I have felt that way through this entire program. Reaching out to other teachers and sharing what you have learned throughout this program is one way to  get more people comfortable with using technology in the classroom. I am sure the staff I teach with are tired of hearing about all of the new things I have learned but I feel very strongly about moving forward and not being stuck in a rut. Well done!

Having adequate technology available in order to carry out standardized testing is a concern.  As the hardware ages and needs updating, will the funding be available?  When replacing hardware, research needs to be done so that as you stated, decisions are not based upon "likes."  I would like to know how much hardware and software has been purchased and never used as it was intended.  Some, I am sure is still in the original packaging.  What a waste!

Twila,
I am so glad you brought up the fact that there is an abundance of instructional software for math.  As I was struggling to locate software for language arts, all I could think of was why didn't I choose math!  However this does bring to light where the focus of instructional software is.  Math and science are important but so is language arts.  Hopefully software developers will recognize this and begin creating more programs.
