    The 2017-2021 "Redefining Learning Program" (TTSD's Instructional Technology Plan) establishes a timeline by which all students will experience personalized learning opportunities that incorporate the 4 C’s (collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and communication) into their educational experience.

    By 2021, all TTSD students will participate in the Redefining Learning Program which emphasizes: college and career readiness skills, equity & accessibility and high-quality transformative instruction. Strategic investment in instructional coaching, modeling of best practice and a shift in culture that allows for innovation will provide leaders, teachers and students with support through the program phases. Upon completion of the four phases of implementation, the ultimate goal is improved academic success through transformational practice.

    iPads are learning tools rather than rewards or punishments. The iPad is part of students’ guaranteed viable curriculum. In the age of screen time, it is more important than ever to think deeply about how we use iPads in our classrooms. In our classrooms, the iPad is an integral part of class work used by students to demonstrate understanding and by teachers to deliver and differentiate instruction. It is a tool for collaborating, communicating, creating, and critical thinking.          An exception to this would be as a part of a student’s individualized plan with a Learning Specialist or Counselor.
