USE OF TECHNOLOGY IN INSTRUCTION
The Governing Board encourages the instructional use of computers, videotapes, interactive videodisks, distance learning, cable television and other technologies. The Board perceives that these technologies will:
give students new ways to access information and practice skills;
help teachers meet a wide range of learning styles;
enable teachers to move from whole-class instruction to a mixture of small-group and individualized instruction;
help students develop reasoning and problem-solving abilities; and
be a part of students’ everyday lives.
The Board recognizes that trained teachers are needed to make the best use of the District’s technology. Teachers and instructional aides shall receive training in using the technologies available to them. All District schools shall have the opportunity to obtain computers, software and other equipment.
The District’s educational software shall be carefully selected and evaluated so as to meet the teachers’ and students’ needs and conform with District policy and regulations.
