After a detailed examination of my chosen school, I was surprised to find out about the technology use status of Greendale Elementary. In short, while I was aware the Maturity Model Benchmarks would provide a summary of technology use at Greendale Elementary, I in no way anticipated the amount of information it would uncover and analyze with respect to technology use within a specific school. Essentially, this examination provided valuable information on the success and faults of Greendale Elementary’s technology plans, policies, practices, and implementations. Furthermore, this probe into Greendale Elementary’s technology use allowed the school to perform some self-assessments and gauge its current practices on technology integration. Thus, this research not only became a valuable tool for me in my studies, but also for the school that was examined. In the end, I believe it was very successful, eye-opening experience for all parties involved.
