School Evaluation Summary

This assignment was very informative and eye opening.  I definitely think that performing this evaluation would be a great way to orient myself to any schools’ technology maturity if I were a newly hired technology director.    This evaluation would need to be updated yearly though because technology use could change rapidly depending on lots of different factors such as new technologies, curriculum revision, training sessions, and more.  After completing this evaluation I was able to get a sense of what areas needed addressing within the school’s technology plan.  I think it would also be helpful if the Maturity Model Benchmark was updated to include all the changes we have seen in educational technology since 1998.  Subsections that deal with wireless networks, mobile devices, interactive whiteboards, etc. would be great to add to this model.  Overall, I really enjoyed this assignment and learned a lot about how to really learn about a school’s technological maturity.
