These Digital age skills are vital for preparing students to work, live and contribute to the social and civic fabric of their communities, enable them to prepare for college and career opportunities and thrive in a flat world.

Technology Mentors

Technology integration plays a integral role in the common core standards and is vital to the success of our students in the 21st century.
Site Instructional Technology Mentors will serve as a “coach”  to support the infusion of technology into classrooms.  They will experiment with new technologies that align to the Common Core and offer innovative ways to introduce students to the digital world.
Tech mentors will host teachers throughout the district in their classrooms for observations and model lessons. They will provide professional development on site and participate in district committees.

Professional Development

BUSD will provide opportunities extensive opportunities for training and support to all staff.

Wired Wednesdays will be offered two Wednesdays each month after school for 15-20 minutes by our Tech Mentors. These short PD sessions will offer a new app., tech strategy, or tidbit that supports tech integration.  Sessions are right after school in a central location.

BUSD is excited to launch Google Apps for Education at our District wide Professional Development Day on Sept. 2, 2014.
