The ability to use technology and the Internet for a variety of tasks is a key skill for functioning successfully in today's society. The use of technology as a tool for engaging students and delivering instruction and for streamlining all administrative tasks is so embedded in the workplace that it is accepted as the usual way to do business.
Manassas Park City Schools is committed to preparing students for a world that is unknown to us in the present. Technological literacy makes students competent and confident. To ensure that students possess these qualities, the school division must ensure that technology is fully integrated into the teaching and learning process. It must also ensure that reliable information systems to support teaching and learning are in place and a professional development plan that supports ongoing instruction for all stakeholders is followed. The use of the Internet in all areas and levels of instruction is an integral part of the instructional process. Providing instruction of the positive and negative aspects of the Internet is important in maximizing the impact it has on integration practices in the learning process of students.
