Technology Directors

As a forward-thinking technology director, you already know that you need to think beyond the device when implementing a major technology initiative. The consequences of failure are too great not to use the right tools, right now. But do you know all of the steps for a successful implementation? Project RED offers engaging resources to help you hit the ground running.

Project RED conducted the first and only national research study to focus on academic results and the financial benefits of educational technology. Our research of 1,000 schools revealed key findings for the effective integration of technology in schools-- findings that show a replicable design for reducing costs and increasing student achievement. Let us show you how to effectively equip and empower teachers with technology to benefit all students.

Learn about successful strategies

In order to see student achievement increase and to realize cost benefits from technology, all district leaders must be engaged in and committed to technology. Districts must make professional learning and the effective use of technology high priorities—for not just teachers, but administrators as well.

Project RED can help you assemble the right district leadership and create a broad plan of deployment with curriculum leaders and administrators so they can be part of the solution. Consider your first year as Year Zero, your planning year, when you plan the project to build a foundation for success. As a leader of the effort, you can provide the foundation your district’s needs to experience technology-empowered learning.

Practical, research-based method

Are you ready to begin? Project RED can introduce you and your district leaders to a practical, research-based method to effectively integrate technology into the classroom. Project RED will provide visionary technology directors and their teams with the tools and knowledge to ensure that technology integration raises student achievement, while having a positive fiscal impact on tight budgets.
