Contemporary schools are rapidly adopting computer-based technology as a major resource for educating K-12 students, and teachers entering the nation’s schools must be prepared to use these resources. The Educational Policy Committee of the Lynch School of Education has approved the requirements which are listed in this handbook in order to insure that Lynch School graduates will be well trained in the use of relevant technology.

Lynch School students in the Class of 2002 and beyond shoul! d demonstrate the competencies listed herein prior to graduation, but students are strongly encouraged to submit each component as soon as they are ready. Many of these competencies will enhance the academic experience of Lynch School students throughout their Boston College coursework.
