Meeting 12-13-11   Tech committee 12-13-11
  1. The committee discussed the goal of the technology committee is to provide vision for the use of technology in the district. This vision will be captured in a practical and clear district technology plan. 
  2. The committee visited district classrooms to understand the current experiences in classrooms across the district.
  3. The common core is being discussed in committees across our district. The technology committee needs to align the use of technology with the common core by focusing on practices that encourage deeper learning of content rather than broader coverage.





  1. We developed a rough draft of our 5 year vision for elementary, middle, and high school students.
  2. We started to develop draft goals for technology integration, info lit skills/tech skills, and 2-way/3-way communication.
  3. We brainstormed the types of technology training support Lori can provide. 



  1. The technology committee spent the majority of our last meeting drafting goals for using technology to support student learning. These goals will be revised by the Technology Plan sub committee and brought back to the group. The five areas for these goals as outlined by the CDE are: integration, skill development, equal access, use of data, and home-school communication.
  2. We will accordion this plan between the Ed Tech Committee and our schools throughout the process. The first opportunity to share will be after the New Year once an initial draft is completed.
  3. We continue to look through the lens of Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity as we discuss our district moving forward. The committee is looking to integrate all technology efforts with the broader student goals of our schools and district.
