"Technology Center Coming Soon!"
It has a certain ring, but what does it actually mean? Does anything come "soon" in school construction/development projects? Cook School and Woodland School discussions date back to 2008. As of 2016, they are still in "scope development," according to the Schools Development Authority's website.
Will the district or the SDA be the lead agency in fixing up the one-story building on West Front Street? How much will it cost? Is any site remediation needed first?
Will it be a technology center with activities as described by the International Society for Technology in Education? The Plainfield Insider Newsletter calls it a "high Technology Center" on the front page and an "Information Technology Center" in the Board President's Message.
Is technology currently integrated into classroom learning, and if so, how would a free-standing center enhance the district? Who would attend and how would students be selected?
It will be interesting to see how this project unfolds.
