Even as a technology integration specialist, I feel there is still a time and a place for paper pencil work. As I work more and more with leadership systems within schools, I feel there is a great opportunity to streamline the paper trail. Below you will find just five recommended areas of impact. There are certainly more, but these make the most sense to me.

  • Collaborative Documents - Working in teams is an easy, and efficient area to re-frame into a paperless activity. MAKE A COPY
