Funding technology initiatives
Schools always have limited resources. Even when they get a big grant or the community approves a technology referendum, there's never enough money to go around. It seems to me that schools have a couple of general approaches that they can take...
Option 1 - Spread the money widely across the organization. Try and get as much hardware and software as possible, even if this means little or no staff development.
Option 2 - Identify strategic investments. Spend only in certain places within the organization and invest deeply in staff development to ensure that those projects are successful.
Obviously there's a continuum here - this is not necessarily an either-or choice. That said, why does it seem like most school organizations almost always pick Option 1? Does anyone think this strategy is working?
