Technology Innovations Status – In Brief

(updated as of Sep 2019)

East Irondequoit launched its digital conversation in 2012.  The first classroom pilots took place in Spring 2013, and full transition to 1:1 at all grades was achieved as of September 2015, using iPads.  Schoology was adopted as the district’s LMS, and augmented with a digital assessment platform later on.  Fall 2016 marked the first use of digital textbooks, as well as the district’s acceptance into the League of Innovative Schools.  In summer 2017 a decision was made to switch to Windows 10 laptops in grades 9-12.  Some technology-rich curriculum innovations have also been added – including most notably a robotics program, Project Lead the Way coursework, coding in grade 5, and Maker Spaces at all four elementary schools.  Classrooms have also been reconceived, with over 15 technology-rich and flexible “classrooms of the future” being created.

The district has provided intensive PD to all teachers, currently averaging about 18 hours/year for new teacher and 6 hours/year for current teachers – leveraging resources from BOCES as well as Discovery Education and other external providers.  Guidance and support to teachers is being provided by instructional technology specialists (a .6 FTE from BOCES for elementary teachers, plus a .5 FTE at the middle school and 1 FTE at the high school).  A cadre of 40 master teachers is also being trained through a 5-year program delivered by Discovery Education; 8 teachers are being prepared to serve as digitally-rich teacher leaders through a 5-year program developed by the University of Rochester, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.

Selected successful practices we are happy to share about:

  • Developing a sustainable technology budget
  • Establishing a Digital Conversion Leadership Team
  • Getting started with pilots
  • Role of the instructional technology coach
  • Preparing digital conversion master teachers/ teacher leaders
  • Designing “classrooms of the future”
  • Establishing a student-run help desk
