    Innovating Teaching and Learning Through Technology

Technology Integration

  • We are committed to enhancing the instructional delivery process with technology in all of our classrooms. The ECISD Technology Integration Plan focuses on providing 5 key pieces of technology equipment to the teacher in the ECISD classroom; the laptop, Apple iPad, media projector, document camera, and Promethean Board or Mimio TeachBar. The ECISD has integrated technology into the classroom in a very practical manner making the learning process more dynamic for students. 

Consolidating Technology in the Classroom Environment

  • We have halted the purchase of all traditional overhead projectors and VHS/DVD players for classroom use. The laptop, iPad, document camera, media projector, and Promethean Board or Mimio Teach device consolidate all the features that each of these individual pieces of equipment have traditionally provided in the classroom. We are concerting our efforts and resources into key technology equipment, and as a result, our teachers are doing more with technology. This consolidation strategy also allows us to focus our instructional technology training efforts on these specific pieces of equipment. 

 

Technology Staff

 

TECHNOLOGY ADMINISTRATION

Providing Internet and Network access to all our students and staff members is one of the main goals of the Technology Department. The ECISD Network gives teachers and students access to online instructional and administrative resources. The network provides administrators and teachers access to district databases and applications. Administrators can retrieve student and financial data, and teachers can access web based gradebooks and curriculum guides.
