Hi all,

A quick survey .. regarding technology .. what would you and your school

spend many bucket loads of money on .. right now .. technology related ??

maybe, an unlimited, within reason, thankful ex-student bequest say :)

just a very short list if you like, on or off list, and i'll collate :D

tens+ million for technology related spending **now** for your school ??


http://www.edweek.org American Technology experts are advising school 
officials to look closely at the new federal economic-stimulus package 
for indirect as well as direct sources of aid for technology projects. 
The $787 billion stimulus bill, signed into law last week, includes $650 
million for existing educational technology programs and opens additional 
opportunities to find money for such purposes as improved broadband 
access for rural schools and enhanced data-management systems."

Eg all notebooks, touch screen iwbs & fast broadband in every classroom?

just maybe, Kevin might need to spend more yet, quickly, let's be ready :)
