Welcome to Instructional Technology
As our world grows increasingly smaller, and our opportunities for learning evolve, we want to provide our students and teachers with resources they can leverage to become aware, contributing members of our community and our world. By working with all school stakeholders (faculty/staff and families), we strive to create real-world, technology-rich settings that enhance the integration of robust and adaptive tools across District curricula.
1:1 Teaching and Learning ensures District 103 students are experiencing the high-quality education they need to be successful in our ever-changing, digital society. 1:1 Teaching and Learning in grades 1-8 provides our teachers and students with enhanced learning experiences through increased student collaboration, creativity, and communication.
