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 –
This plan was approved by the School Board in February 2012, and by the State of Maine in May 2012.
