Many forms of educational improvement are best undertaken at the district level. This is especially true for technology initiatives because of the close coordination between administrative and instructional planning that is involved. In recent years, school districts have embraced technology as a catalyst for improving the circumstances of student learning, promoting professional development, and enacting reforms. In order to succeed, such investments require carefully planned purchase and disbursement of technology, additional professional development, deliberate instructional change, and coordination of curriculum-all put in place and closely aligned if technology is gong to "make a difference" in schools.
