Colchester School District Technology Department

We believe technology is essential for learning in the 21st century. Technology is used to collaborate, communicate, create, problem solve, and think critically. Educators use technology to create engaging, rigorous and personalized environments for students.

The schools in the district use a diverse set of technology. LCD projectors are used to present a variety of information to students. Across the district interactive projectors and Smartboards are used to engage students with hands-on learning. Many classroom use document cameras to create a dynamic experience for students. Access to these tools allows teachers to promote 21st Century Skills deemed necessary by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).

Our goal is to continue to provide and support these tools. In addition to the above technology resources, the following technology is available.
