UNITE (Utilizing New and Innovative Technologies in Education) was formed in 2015 funded by the voter-approved Measure G Parcel Tax.
We work to empower teachers in building capacity in integrating technology into curriculum - make links between what is being learned (content), how it is taught (pedagogy), and the appropriate tools (technology).
Provide and support staff with the necessary technology resources and capability to best prepare all students with the skills needed to contribute and thrive in a changing world.
We will seamlessly employ technology to continue transforming our classrooms to:
increase rigor, engagement, and efficiency
promote the use of 21st century skills
foster independent thinking and lifelong learning
Develop 21st century lessons that integrate ISTE Standards
Transform focus of the classroom from teacher-centric to student-centric
Use “SAMR” to move teachers from:
substitution, augmentation → modification, redefinition, when appropriate
