Instructional Technology Coordinator


Technology has had a tremendous impact on the way students learn and the way that teachers teach.  The Instructional Technology division is committed to supporting the teaching and learning process in a way that truly impacts academic excellence.  Through the access of digital content for curriculum and 21st century tools for instruction, our possibilities are endless!

Digital Content

Digital natives access content daily using web resources and electronic books.  Now, with schools embracing 1:1 initiatives where each student has their own device, the opportunity to access - and create - digital content has arrived.  Teachers are using digital videos, audio, and textbooks to bring the curriculum to life for students. 

21st Century Tools

As students become more immersed in technology, the interactive, animated, information-seeking environment is the one that most mirrors their day-to-day tasks.  21st century tools in the schools foster and support increased understanding of academic concepts and skills. 

Currently, teachers across the district are exploring ways to design transformation environments and learning processes.  Through support from C&I, teachers are implementing 21st century strategies that embody collaboration and innovation.

Planning Protocol Dashboard

Planning Protocol Dashboard is a custom-built curriculum repository that holds planning guides, roadmaps, and has aligned the TEKS with research-based materials and resources.  The dashboard is available 24/7 to support instructional planning and classroom implementation with the click of a mouse or swipe of a touchscreen.
