Education is a business – a business with a higher purpose: to teach our children and prepare them for the 21st century. Every school budget from state universities to charter schools is under pressure to make each dollar count. Whether you are implementing Green Building technologies that actually deliver a measureable savings to your overhead costs, or deploying a wireless network campus-wide, there needs to be a quantifiable ROI. At the same time, this business of Education cannot lose its core purpose. Educators are re-examining how they approach content in the classroom. How can you use web 2.0 tools effectively in your curriculum?
