We are currently using an older version of Windows. Will we be updating?

I would like to share this suvey summary from EdNews.org.
http://www.ednews.org/articles/7474/1/Survey-of-Educators-Finds-Lack-of-Focus-on-21st-Century-Media-Literacy-Skills/Page1.html
(lack of focus on 21st century media literacy skills). I believe that these skills need to be and can be taught integrally and naturally throughout all of the areas and levels of our curriculum by every person who works with students. We need to avoid assuming that students are "getting" this knowledge and experience somewhere else or from someone else. Our students represent us out there in cyperspace!

Yes, Joe, we are using Windows 2000...upgrading to Windowsxp in baby steps. From a tech standpoint, moving to a new environment comes with it many caveats. One must consider which programs will no longer work on the new platform. In addition, my philosophy is to let others experience the nightmares and look forwrd to the patches. Let the software and hardware industries catch up to the new version of windows which will allow for a much more cost effective deployment of a piece of the new.
