Technology Implementation Practice Guide

The PowerUp Technology Implementation Practice Guide offers a roadmap for district- and school-wide technology implementation for Leadership Teams. It draws on research-based implementation practices. The Technology Implementation Practice Guide addresses core technology implementation issues such as:

  • Who is (or should be) included on the Leadership Team and involved in the process?
  • What are your short- and long-term goals for integrating technology into best practices to ensure students who struggle meet the CCSS?
  • How do you make decisions about allocation of, and access to, technology? How do you budget for technology purchases as well as ongoing maintenance and upgrade costs?
  • How does launching initiatives such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and 1:1 computing using laptops, netbooks, tablets, or other mobile devices support you in meeting student needs?
  • How can you support teachers as they integrate technology into their classrooms?
  • What kinds of professional learning can you provide to support teachers in their learning about how to integrate technology throughout instruction?

Review the six Technology Implementation recommendations in the Practice Guide to clearly articulate your vision, set short- and long-term goals, and identify specific goal-oriented action steps.
