DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP PROGRAMMING
Responsible technology use is an essential life skill.

We focus on the ‘how’ ‘when’ and ‘why’ of technology use to help students develop positive habits for life.
STRATEGIC / TECH PLANNING
Technology planning is no longer an add-on for a board committee. The planned use of technology informs every decision you make in your building. With our support, design a guiding document that establishes an annual review process for device choice, purchasing cycles, management, instructional strategy, curriculum resources, ongoing training, building network and infrastructure, budgeting, funding, and partnerships. Everything you need to achieve your vision.
