Education Technology Vision

South Colonie Technology Plan

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 and ISTE Learning Standards.

Our long-range technology plan was developed for the 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 as 21st Century Learners. 

The use of technology tools in the District is focused on developing our student’s ability to think critically, inspire creativity, collaborate with their peers and communicate effectively.  Software and web-based applications are selected based on their ability 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 improving the efficiency of teaching and learning via blended, flipped and online learning opportunities. These instructional best-practices allow for a personalized learning environment which fosters successful outcomes for all learners. Technology-infused learning will expand the opportunities available for students to interact with, to understand and to change their world.
