    INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY

    The use of technology in our classrooms today is a natural result of meeting the ever-changing needs of our students who are growing up in a digital age. With the internet, the world is literally at the fingertips of our students! Innovation in the classroom and the use of technology tools, such as Chromebooks, interactive whiteboards, iPads, and other devices isn't the end result but a vehicle for the instruction to engage our students and allow for more interactive and individualized learning, previously inconceivable. The goal of Instructional Technology is finding the most appropriate application of technology in each individual classroom and for each individual task for maximum learning potential.
