Technology is ubiquitous, touching almost every part of our lives, our communities, our homes, yet most schools lag behind when it comes to integrating technology into classroom learning. Many schools are just beginning to explore the true potential technology can offer towards teaching and learning. Technology, when properly used, will help students acquire the skills they need to survive in a complex, highly technological knowledge-based economy. Integrating technology into classroom instruction means more than teaching basic computer skills and software programs in a separate computer class. Effective technology integration is achieved when the use of technology is routine and transparent and when technology supports curricular goals. To find out how effective schools in the Rochester area are at implementing technology, a study was conducted with 11 administrators and teachers. Each person answered questions on a survey to see how comfortable they were at using technology, implementing technology and the resources available to them?
