Technology is a powerful and important tool that we harness to enhance teaching and learning in our classroom, not replace it. With technology-enhanced curriculum, our students are building essential skills that will enable them to thrive in today’s digital world.
To truly prepare our students for the world, the school setting must mirror what’s happening outside the classroom. We’re preparing students by teaching them how to use technology as a tool for learning, productivity, collaboration, and critical thinking.These are essential skills that our students will need when entering college or the workforce.
We strive for a blended learning approach that enables educators to help develop these skills, share ideas, build team capacity, and leverage individual talents. We utilize our learning platforms to provide access to lesson plans, curriculum resources, and common assessments, in addition to on-demand enrichment resources before, during, and after the classroom experience.
Students in our district focus on digital citizenship, a set of skills for thinking critically, behaving safely, and participating responsibly in the digital world.
Our 1:1 transformational technology program provides every learner access to a Chromebook or other device in their classrooms. In other words, for every one student in Weld RE-4, there is at least one technological device to support their learning.
Infinite Campus vs. Canvas
Infinite Campus is a student information system (SIS). It's where student transcripts, demographics, class schedules, report cards, and current overall course grades are housed.
Canvas is a Learning Management System (LMS) that is better suited for giving parents access to assignment details (due dates, requirements, descriptions, etc.), course resources, and student submissions.
