Welcome to our Instructional Technology page! Here you will find valuable resources to engage students and integrate technology into the classroom curriculum. As ITRT, I agree with Bill Gates who said, "Technology is just a tool! In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is most important."

Framework for Instructional Technology
The Framework presents a holistic view of 21st century teaching and learning that combines a discrete focus on 21st century student outcomes (a blending of specific skills, content knowledge, expertise and literacies) with innovative support systems to help students master the multi-dimensional abilities required of them in the 21st century and beyond.
The key elements of 21st century learning are represented in the graphic and descriptions below. The graphic represents both 21st century student outcomes (as represented by the arches of the rainbow) and 21st century learning support systems (as represented by the pools at the bottom).
The elements depicted above are the critical systems necessary to ensure 21st century readiness for every student. 21st century standards, assessments, curriculum, instruction, professional development and learning environments must be aligned to produce a support system that produces 21st century outcomes for today’s students.
