The goal of using computers, a local area network, a wide area network, and the Internet is to bring educational resources to both students and staff and to facilitate differentiation and individual growth in technology, information gathering skills, and communication. Providing these resources is intended to promote educational excellence by linking individuals and classrooms to global resources and facilitating resource sharing, innovation, and communication. The purpose of the technology department of Madison City Schools is to support the district's instructional programs and to facilitate the achievement of the vision to empower our students to be successful on local, national, and global levels.
The importance of technology integration is apparent throughout Madison City Schools. Teachers use state-of-the-art technology to enhance instruction and facilitate administrative tasks. Students are provided with access to computer labs, automated media centers, and computers in their classrooms. Every classroom in the school system is networked providing Internet access, online resources, and cable TV access. The video system available throughout the district provides opportunities for live broadcasts or for sharing other digital content. Most classrooms are furnished with a variety of peripheral devices including but not limited to digital cameras, document cameras, projectors, classroom performance systems, and interactive white boards and touch panels.
We will improve student achievement by providing equitable access to high quality instruction of 21st Century skills in technology-infused schools.
To provide educational opportunities capable of preparing all students to achieve their potential, to function as responsible citizens, and to continue learning through life.
