Last Tuesday, the Ed Tech Teacher Advisory Team wrapped up their final meeting of the year. This team was composed of 25 teachers representing grades K-12, in a variety of articulation areas, including Title 1 and option schools.
Over the course of three meetings, the team learned more about the new ISTE Standards for Students and looked specifically at tech integration, tech professional learning, and tech planning throughout their schools and in our district overall. Throughout these meetings, the team had the opportunity to discuss what technology integration currently looks like throughout the district, their vision for how they hope it can look in the future, and how schools are creatively tackling challenges while also celebrating the amazing things that teachers are already doing in their classrooms. Check out some of the things the team discussed below:
We’d like to thank the Teacher Advisory Team members for all of their great thinking and focus around thoughtfully integrating technology into classrooms and schools across our district. This team was an excellent reminder of the exceptional talent and vast knowledge that the teachers in our schools have when it comes to ensuring that all of our students will be successful 21st century learners.
