DPS Central - Media and Technology Page

Have you visited the DPS Media & Technology page on the DPS Central website? Click here to access this page. DPS Media & Technology is focused on assisting teachers and students to understand and make learning connections to the North Carolina Information and Technology Essential Standards (ITES). The ITES are designed to be seamlessly integrated into all curricular areas and grade levels through collaboration among teachers, media specialists (or coordinators....that's us!) and technology facilitators (that's us, too!). As a result, Information and Technology skills are taught in context, and instruction occurs in classrooms, media centers, technology labs and virtual settings.
