Technology in the Classroom
Integrating technology into the classroom is largely a school-based decision; schools may choose to hire technology integrationists or media specialists to help blend technology within lessons and other learning activities.
OSSU Technology Services provides schools with information and resources on ongoing professional development, such as VITA-Learn, which coordinates learning events such as Dynamic Landscapes and VT Fest. Staff also provide trainings on a variety of technology tools used across the supervisory union.
