The PUSD 2014-17 TECHNOLOGY USE PLAN
Two recent events have led to instructional technology being more fully integrated into curriculum and instruction in PUSD. The first is the development of the Common Core Standards (CCSS). CCSS require students to competently use technology to conduct research, synthesize information, present findings, and work collaboratively with peers. Additionally, the new California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) will be administered to measure student proficiency of Common Core Standards. The vast majority of CASSPP components are completed on-line requiring students to quickly and efficiently navigate the use of computers or other technology platforms.
Both events have influenced our district to create clear student grade level benchmarks related to technology skills as well as pertinent teacher professional development. Paramount Unified School District’s goal is to integrate technology into academic instruction to help students understand how to access information, synthesize information in collaboration with peers, and present findings to variety of audiences. The District is committed to providing the professional development needed to use technology to improve student learning.
