Welcome to the Director of Instructional Technology web page. Instructional technology is the integration of technology in the classroom for successful teaching and learning. The mission of Reeds Spring School District is to provide comprehensive educational experiences that will enable all students to become life-long learners and productive, informed citizens. We are transforming the way we teach our 21st century learners. Through technology integration our mission is to create a learning culture where teachers and students are active participants in the learning process as they critically analyze information, create new knowledge collaboratively, and communicate what they have learned.
Instructional Technology Pedagogy Statement:
As an educator I believe that I must be willing to grow and change to meet the needs of our students. I hold myself accountable for implementing the best practices for instruction that empowers students to be active participants in their own learning. I believe that all learners can excel at their optimal level of achievement and that it is my job to create learning opportunities for reaching their full potential.
As the Director of Instructional Technology I will stay well-informed and up to date on research-based best practices for instructional strategies to include technology infused teaching methods. I will collaborate with administrators and teachers to create a professional learning network among and for teachers. I will communicate best instructional practices with teachers. I will continually strive for improvement for teacher professional learning in order to meet the academic needs of all students.
My teachers and staff will participate in research-based and highly effective professional learning opportunities so that every student has the best opportunity for learning in every educational setting. My teachers will investigate methods for instruction that will transform the learning environment for today’s students. As a result of their professional learning and support, teachers will be able to address the needs of all learners.
