Narrative Audience: Faculty Reason I chose this audience because it seems like it is the group that seems to think that district resources are at their disposal and that the rules do not apply to them. I have been a technology director for 4 years and I must constantly repeat my reasons why we have policies. I thought this would be a great tool to get the information out to my faculty. Hopefully after this presentation they will clearly understand the policies of the district.
