Technology Integration

The Hampstead School District is a fully wireless district. This allows teachers more mobility and flexibility to integrate technology into the curriculum. Both laptop and tablet devices are available to students throughout the district. Both campuses are equipped with up-to-date technology that is easily accessible for students and teachers. Our middle and elementary schools have a full time Technology Integration Specialist who works with students in the lab and with teachers on curriculum integration. The Technology Department offers ongoing professional development to foster and encourage technology skills for instruction and professional growth. Our technology professional development follows a “train the trainer” model. This ensures that all teachers are being trained by either the department or a team leader. The district also offers a variety of assistive technologies for student with special needs.


Technology Tools

Web based Gradebooks/Planbooks

Hampstead School District uses the Power Teacher component of the Powerschool Student Information System to manage attendance, grades, and report cards. In addition, teachers have access to Planbook.com to create and share lesson plans in a digital format.

Microsoft Office/ Google Apps

Teachers are provided with the Microsoft Office suite for classroom use and professional collaboration. The district also employs the use of Google Apps for Education. All students and teachers are provided access to these collaborative tools as well as 30 GB of cloud storage.

Online Classrooms

The district uses the MOODLE learner management system, Google Sites, and Google Classroom to house online instructional activities. Each teacher is provided an online classroom and the freedom to manage the space to meet their curricular needs.

Communication Tools

Parents, students and teachers have the ability to connect through the use of the district Parent Portal which provides real time grades, assignments and attendance information. Parents and students can view this information from any computer with internet connectivity.

The district also offers a technology summer camp and other community learning activities. The district has a cable media studio which allows students to work on video and media editing.

All of these outlets provide space for student to imagine, create and invent.
