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).

Mission:

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.

Vision:

  • We will seamlessly employ technology to continue transforming our classrooms to:
    • become student-centric
    • increase rigor, engagement, and efficiency
    • promote the use of 21st century skills
    • foster independent thinking and lifelong learning

Overarching Goals:

  • 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
