Comprehensive Plan Draft
Technology has become part of the educational process. Integrating technology into the curriculum is a priority in most schools today. For many teachers a lack of personal experience with technology presents a challenge. Technology can be a tool for teachers as well as for students.

Second pro is to share that knowledge with those that do not know enough about the new technology out there. Third pro is to encourage other students to learn the technology that is being taught. Last pro is students are having fun learning all the technology that is being used in today’s world.
The cons in using technology are at a disadvantage because one does not have any hardware to use.

Last con is to handle teaching technology very carefully because if the student does not know what to do with the hardware equipment it will be damaged....
