Role of Technology
At the center of the strategic directions for Greenwich Public Schools is student learning. In order to prepare our students in an ever-changing world, we must provide the knowledge and skills for their success. It is our belief that students can not only meet the standard for excellence in education and become responsible citizens in our society with the help of technology but must be capable users of technology to succeed in our complex, global world. The use of technology is a critical 21st century skill and an integral part of a student learning and working in today's society. Students utilizing technology to exchange and collaborate on projects, access, evaluate, and master digital resources will have the means to be productive citizens in our society.
The mission of Educational Technology is to bring the higher education model for technology to the K-12 classroom by preparing all students to use technology as a learning tool and bring about a cultural change in the way technology is used by educators and students. We expect effective, competent, and purposeful use of technology by administrators, teachers, and students to establish seamless integration of technology on a daily basis throughout the curriculum and extracurricular activities.
The District's Technology staff's main responsibility is to maintain computers, networks, and servers for all stakeholders. We are here to assist and support students, staff, schools, and administration in planning for future needs and developing creative utilization of technology.
Our commitment is to provide courteous, timely, and reliable service that result in a high level of customer satisfaction and functionality for our schools and administration. We accomplish this goal by placing emphasis on teamwork dedicated to our students and staff.
