But does the use of technology get figured into the equity equation? If you have a building full of "Robin's old teachers" that don't want to use the technology anyway, should they be granted more "boxes", just because the magic formula says they should? I would like to see buildings do some prioritization activities on how they would use the technology and what is important to the building. (in relationship to the building's vision and the district's) This of course is assuming we still have funding for technology. Maybe enough for those projector replacement bulbs this next year, at least.
But maybe if you replace one of "Robin's old teachers" with a new cheap teacher, (with enthusiasm, desire to use technology, and some teacher training on using technology in the classroom) the difference in salary could be made up for with some technology for the classroom/school. Even a portion of this salary would provide some great technology. These would be the catalysts to spread throughout.
