The development of a technology plan as a learning exercise generates not only the specific technology plan, but also, provides an avenue for the participants to enhance their leadership skills and their higher order thinking skills. The participants practice their skills of communication and collaboration. They solve the problems of helping students learn with technology while mindful of monetary issues. Instructors will provide a framework to develop the plan but encourage the students to creatively develop the plan with student learning as the ultimate goal. This chapter will attempt to answer three main questions. They are: 1. What learning takes place during the technology planning process? 2. How do students develop a technology plan? 3. What pedagogy is used to teach technology planning?
