2015-2018 Draft Technology Plan

posted Feb 24, 2015, 1:11 AM by Karen Potvin   [ updated Nov 6, 2015, 9:49 AM by James Harwood ]

Technology is an essential component for teaching and learning. This plan calls for engaging and empowering personalized learning experiences for learners of all ages. The development of this plan was driven by the goals set forth in the National Educational Technology Plan of 2010, the National Educational Technology Standards of the International Society for Technology in Education and our District Vision and Mission. Technology must be available and supported for teachers and students at all times.

Our plan presents four goals: Teaching and Learning, Assessment, Digital Citizenship and Equitable Access. It makes technology available for anytime learning through ubiquitous access to resources.  The promotion of digital citizenship for staff and students is emphasized across the curriculum through creativity, exploration/research, problem solving and communication. To this end, the plan calls for integration through across all grades to offer learning opportunities not previously possible. The district will continually research and evaluate new technologies, pursuing those that show promise in educational application. Once implemented, training on new technologies for end users and supporting staff will be offered.

Implementation of this plan will meet the needs of the MSAD 52 community and directly address the value of technology in education across all grades PreK – Adults.

The MSAD 52 approved plan is below:
