Joanne,

I heartily agree.  Even though I embrace technology, I can't for the life
of me justify having tech just for the sake of having it.  What need does
it fill?  How do you plan on using it?  How do you (Admin) plan on
facilitating the usage through PD?  I am thinking that most of us on this
list will agree with Joanne.

Question (and I realize that this may bend this 1-1 thread):  How many
Administrators are on this list or are getting this message repeatedly
through other sources?  Planning, implementation and support (PD) may be
more important than just the ownership of technology.

Keith
