PUSD's Digital Learning Vision

Equity and access is at the heart of the Pomona Unified School District's Educational Technology Team's effort to expand the walls of the classroom to “everywhere, all the time learning” and support the digital learning vision of: Providing opportunities and environments that will equip, inspire, and empower all learners to effectively use technology and become self-directed, goal oriented, and productive members of their communities.

Welcome Message from EdTech Director Dr. Jen Wagner

Hello and welcome to the new Pomona Unified School District EdTEch website, where we hope to create a one-stop shop for all things 'educational technology'. On this website you will find resources around our Future Ready Promise District Technology Plan, our Future Ready Promise Schools One to-One (1:1) Program, professional learning resources such as videos and how-to guides, digital curriculum reviews/pilots, and much more.

Our mission in Educational Technology is to make certain that all PUSD students have access to technology as a tool for learning, and ensure that all students are equipped, inspired and empowered to be their best and become college and career ready by the time they graduate. To do this, we work to build administrator and teacher capacity in actively utilizing technology for blended and personalized learning within our schools.

This year our district's motto is The Power of Now. To us, this is not just a motto, but a mindset. Now is the time to fully integrate technology as a tool for deeper student learning, knowing that it is okay to take risks, fail forward and continue to grow. As Jaime Casap, Google Education Evangelist has said, "Technology needs to become a more invisible, organic, seamless part of teaching and learning." What is most important is how we integrate the technology into teaching and learning. We are working to ensure that it truly meets the learning needs of PUSD students - we do so with strategy, pedagogy, and purpose. (BOLD School, Weston Kieschnick, 2017)

Your PUSD EdTech Team is here to help everyone in this journey. Feel free to reach out to any of us at any time. Please continue to come back to this website, as we will continue to build and provide resources around educational technology and district initiatives related to EdTech. Be sure to follow us on the social media sites below. Let us know if there are specific topics or resources that should be added. We are always open to new, innovative ideas that will help to best serve the PUSD community.
