Instructional Technology is intended to assist our educators in achieving the district mission to challenge all students and assure that they acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to become productive and responsible Twenty-First Century citizens. This aligns with New York State computer science and digital fluency (CS & DF) standards, "Every student will know how to live productively and safely in a technology-dominated world. This includes understanding the essential features of digital technologies, why and how they work, and how to communicate and create using those technologies.
Integration of technology at the point of instruction is intended to:
- Create a student centered learning environment where the instructional methods fully engage the students in their learning and the teachers become the facilitators.
- Foster higher level thinking by providing students the opportunity to access and analyze information, problem solve both individually and collectively as well as communicate their ideas utilizing varied methods.
- Develop and provide opportunities to demonstrate digital citizenship in all curricular areas
- Develop future ready skills for all students and staff to insure every graduate is career and college ready
District initiatives are focused on integration of future ready skills and NYS CS and DF standards.
