Technology

Technology supports excellence in student learning and business processes in Piedmont.

District Technology Advisory Committee (DTAC)   

The District Technology Advisory Committee is a cross-functional group of students, parents, technologists, teachers, administrators, school board and community members who work together to engage in a dialogue around the District’s use of technology to support effective learning and instruction.  The group meets to inquire about current programs and practices, to reflect on issues related to technology and how it may support students, and share best practices and ideas from other industries and efforts.  Meetings are held 2-4 times a year.

Agendas and Materials from previous meetings are available below.

 

Connected Learning Initiative

Piedmont’s Connected Learning Initiative is one response to preparing our students for college and career readiness in the 21st century.  The Piedmont community has committed to the acquisition, development and support of effective educational technology to improve student learning by providing teachers and students real world contexts for learning, connections to larger learning communities, and opportunities to individualize and apply knowledge in collaborative and creative ways. With the adoption of the State of California’s Common Core Standards, the importance of technology for learning and assessment is brought more clearly into the skill set of the modern learner.

Students in grades 4-12 will have one to one access to a mobile learning device, a 11″ chromebook.  In grades sixth and above, this device will be available to students at school and at home to:

  • Connect student to student and student to teacher with collaboration,
  • Connect to content on the internet with research
  • Connect learning at school and home with a mobile device

The use of the digital tools will also support our implementation of Common Core Standards and learning practices. To read more about the initiative and find answers to some frequently asked questions visit:
