What do you do?

First mission  – bring together  the teachers you suppose to coordinate and get their buy-in. (probably the toughest mission of the lot)

Second – get infrastructure right and your technology savvy at the school on board with you

Third  – Use the budget!  As you are told if you snooze you loose!
