Welcome to the
Ithaca City School District
Instructional Technology website!


Three teachers work on their web sites while attending a recent workshop in the PDC

Our goal is to provide you with information, and connect you with strategies and resources that utilize technology to improve teaching and learning.

Our district has made a substantial committment to educational technology use. Each of our twelve schools has received a significant amount of new technology hardware and software over the past several years in response to proposals generated at the building level. Much of our focus has now shifted from equipment acquisition to supporting teachers as they work to integrate technology into the teaching and learning environment. As a guide in this effort, we use the ISTE Standards to guide our Digital Literacy work.

Staff development is an essential element of our efforts to adjust the content and means of delivering our curriculum to students in this new century. We have one full time Technology Integration Staff Developer, Roger Sevilla, and a crew of Technology Mentors in the schools.Workshops are listed in MyLearningPlan and are usually held in the Professional Development Center (PDC) at IHS.

We hope that you will find access to useful tools to improve teaching and learning here.This site will be updated frequently with new resources, so please visit us again soon!
