The use of technology in the South Colonie Central School District is meant to transform education and improve student performance, as envisioned in the New York State Learning Standards.

A Technology Plan was developed for this district out of the strong belief, supported by research, that technology can significantly enhance the learning environment, increase staff productivity, and improve the teaching and learning process. Furthermore, technology is seen as a critical component for the preparation of our students. Our Technology Plan defines the vision and objectives for moving students forward into the 21st century.

The use of technology tools in the district is focused on the development of higher level analyses, evaluation, communications, presentation and decision-making skills. Software tools and software applications are selected based on the need to increase student learning within and across the subject areas in order to prepare students for their future in the 21st century.

Technology is also important as a means of changing teaching and learning in order to prepare students with the 21st century skills they need to be successful. This technology-based learning will expand the opportunities available for students to interact with, to understand and to change their world.
