RCPS continues to grow in the areas of preK-12 educational technology, assessment tools, data systems and network delivery of resources. We focus on important research in our work such as the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards for Students, Teachers and Leaders as well as CoSN’s Horizon Report and leadership resources.
It is important to note that the State of Vermont AOE has adopted the ISTE Standards for Students as our State Technology Standards. They are cited in this report.
This plan incorporates both instructionally focused goals as well as supporting infrastructure recommendations that will allow students to experience more personalized learning.
Personalized learning can be accomplished through the use of digital tools which can identify and target students’ instructional needs, support communication and collaboration, and provide a place for student interest and self-direction.
We will continue with our innovation and diffusion of technology and technological processes as the district’s needs and demands change. This will be evident in our progress toward personalized learning and innovation with a focus on student agency.
