Project Goals
  • Increase student achievement
  • Improve educators use of technology in order to individualize instruction.
  • Provide technology opportunities that promote collaboration and increase student engagement.
  • Strengthen digital citizenship, ethical online behavior, and media literacy.

Specific Milestones:

  • One of the MOVE 21 Initiative’s goals is aimed at teacher knowledge and use of technology.  As our needs survey indicated 56% of our staff feel they have proficient technology skills.  One important milestone will be when 75% of our staff indicate their technology skills are proficient or advanced.  

  • Sharing successes will be important in sustaining a project like MOVE 21.  Our plan has built that teachers will be asked to share accomplishments during technology club or staff meetings.  

  • The leadership team will make recommendations when determining 24/7 access to personal learning devices will be implemented for and at what grade levels.
