Welcome to the Technology Department of Charles City County Public Schools. Our technology mission is to provide educational opportunities that promote 21st Century skills, digital citizenship, and global collaboration through the innovative use of technology to foster and enhance excellence in teaching and learning.
Specifically, we envision that technology will:
Today's world and technology changes rapidly. This is also the case for our students. Each student is unique and bring with them diverse experiences and backgrounds. Our students are digital natives who embrace the technology and naturally know how to use it to function and communicate in the world around them. The traditional classroom of the past is very different than the 21st Century classroom. Classrooms are becoming more student-centered and provide students an opportunity to experience learning with the use of techn
ology. CCPS uses the SAMR model for technology. This model assists us in moving from just using technology as a substitution to having technology help redefine how to make instruction more effective.
In CCPS, all students in grades 7-12 participate in our 1:1 laptop initiative. Each student received a Dell Latitude 3160 touch screen unit to complete assignments and take home daily. In the second year of implementation, all students in grades 3-6 will participate in our 1:1 laptop initiative. Each classroom K-12 is equipped with an interactive whiteboard for instructional use.
