For 21st Century Educators By Robin Blasi
Thoughts from USD313's Curriculum Development Leader
Instructional Technology Vision
Vision is an integral part of implementing the school district mission statement. The vision is not only aligned to the District Mission Statement but supports student learning outcomes, enables students to transfer their knowledge to new, emerging technologies and provides for 21st Century teaching and learning opportunities.
Please describe the district vision for the use of Instructional Technology:
Creating Generations of Positive World Changers
With Buhler High School going to 1:1 MacBookAirs for the school year of 2015-16 we feel we are definitely headed in the right direction for our students. In addition our middle school (Prairie Hills Middle School) is going 1:1 with iPads. USD313's vision is to bring 21st Century learning into every classroom for our students. Starting last year, we initiated Professional Development for our teachers to incorporate the use of the technology into their curriculum. We will continue to use our Professional Development days to introduce the new technology and Web tools, which are available to our staff.
