Florida Matters -- How Schools Are Preparing For New Technology Requirements
Originally published on Wed July 24, 2013 12:15 pm
Florida schools are gearing up for new education standards and accompanying online testing. Schools must also prepare to deliver half of all classroom instruction digitally by 2015.
So what will this mean for students, teachers and schools? It’s the subject of this week’s Florida Matters on WUSF radio.
Senate Education Committee chairman John Legg, Hillsborough County schools technology specialist Sharon Zulli and Gulf Coast Community Foundation consultant Chris Pfahler discuss how schools are using technology now, what the coming changes mean and what needs to be done — and spent — to get students, teachers and schools ready.
Legg also discusses why Florida lawmakers don’t like what they are hearing about PARCC, a next-generation test intended to replace the FCAT.
