Check out #edtechWylie in the Classrooms!
As a result of the work of an intensive action-research study by the district's Technology Immersion Committee in 2011, the district's Instructional Technology program was created. The multi-year program was launched during the 2012-2013 school year and has grown to now include all K-4 core content classrooms, as well as the Social Studies and English/Language Arts classrooms in grades 5-12. Teachers are immersed in additional professional learning experiences as well as designing technology enhanced lessons that will be used throughout the school year. Each classroom is equipped with technology tools including a teacher laptop, iPads or Chromebooks, and software tools to support instruction.
The goal of #edtechWylie is to make instructional technology "as indispensable to teachers as the Smartphone is to its users!"
