SCUSD 2013-2016 Technology Plan
In an attempt to keep up with the constantly changing world of information and technology, Sacramento City Unified School District is shifting from using technology as a tool for student information consumption to using technology more creatively to demonstrate what students know as a result of their instructional activities. The focus, in alignment with the new Common Core State Standards, the SCUSD Strategic Plan, and inquiry-based design methodology, is to create a real-world and rigorous learning environment for teaching and learning. Our goal is to create an inquiry-based learning environment in which students respond authentically to the learning, as well as understand how they learn. Over the next three years the District will guide teachers in making a transition from using technology for skill acquisition to one in which the technology provides increased functional improvement in the classroom, allowing the student to use the technology to define and re-define the instructional tasks in the technology-embedded learning environment.
