So whats the purpose of this group?

Technology e-Learning Committee

This year, this group was established for the specific purpose of integrating technology into our buildings and curriculum. The district e-Learning Committee consists of 2 cohorts with approximately 24 members from grades PK-12 including teachers, administrators and instructional technology staff. This group will be meeting every other month to plan and deliver professional development opportunities for other district members. This group will serve as the technology experts in their buildings. Members will have opportunities to attend state, regional and national conferences in order to collaborate with others and learn new instructional technologies. As a member of this group, it is a commitment to help provide professional development to other teachers.
