Learning in the Digital Age is the theme for the 2013-16 technology plan update. The 2013-16 technology plan update was provided to the Board of Trustees at the May 21, 2013 meeting. The responsibility for authoring the technology plan is given to the PISD Technology Steering Committee. Input to this plan was provided by students, parents, teachers, support staff, and administrators. The needs assessment process included online surveys, focus group sessions, and technology steering committee meetings and workgroups. In total, 6,448 stakeholders provided input as part of this technology plan update. More detailed information on the process used is available for your review.

Our challenge is to rethink the possibilities this digital age provides to learning for our students and teachers - to learn, unlearn, and relearn as massive amounts of new information becomes available to guide our understanding. To rethink how we learn, what we learn, and where and when we learn.

The vision of this technology plan update focuses on preparing students to learn and work in this digital age. Visionary school leaders as well as prepared teachers will build upon this framework to provide opportunities for students to reach their full potential.

Background information for review as you provide input through the process:
  • The "Learning In the Digital Age" video introduction will be used at all meetings and each campus to begin the input process.
