The focus of integrated instructional technology in Nutley Public Schools is to prepare students for their futures in a world of digital technology and information. As we navigate the 21st century, excellence in education requires that technology, including access to the Internet, be readily available and seamlessly integrated throughout the educational program. Our integrated instructional technology goals are to...
empower students with readily available resources and information,
aid creativity and innovation,
help students make informed decisions to successfully meet challenges and solve problems,
allow for more authentic project and problem-based learning and inquiry,
support organization and productivity,
expand communication and collaboration opportunities within and beyond our classroom walls, and
provide a means for more relevant, personalized learning.
Technology as a tool helps teachers create and present content and instruction that leads to more engaged, active learning. Technology immersion does not diminish the vital role of the teacher. To the contrary, teachers are critical to the effective use of technology in the learning process. To facilitate that, we have put in place the support structure to enable our teachers to meaningfully integrate technology in curriculum, instruction, and assessments.
