I look at technology as the tool to curriculum and differentiation.  My
question to the teachers would be what are you trying to teach the
students by using this software?  Then if it is necessary to the
curriculum, we work out a way to get it to work (or find a substitute) and
make certain the students have the technology skills necessary to use it.
