Technology is not just about what tools are provided, but how those tools are used. Instructional technology expands the learning environment, engages students, and enables them to create, communicate, collaborate, and think critically. Coleman Elementary first grades learned how to use their device safely thanks to a lesson provided by the Technology Department. Pacific Intermediate fifth grade students created a blog using the writing process. By using the writing process, students went through several distinct steps to develop and expand their ideas. "Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them." Bill Gates
