Digital Classroom Plan Mission & Vision
Our mission is to prepare all students to be college and career ready and to possess the attitudes and values necessary to function as productive citizens. We will accomplish this mission by creating a technological environment that allows all learners equal access to interact, collaborate, and succeed. We believe the use of technology as a learning tool and part of the curriculum should focus on supporting differentiated instruction, problem solving, collaboration, critical thinking skills and individualized learning.
Okeechobee County Schools has identified five long-term goals for integrating technology into all aspects of the educational system. These goals will guide the technology planning process and the implementation of the plan during the five year duration of this plan.
These goals are:
To implement Florida Standards-based instruction and integrate technology into the curriculum in every classroom.
Provide ongoing staff development for implementation and use of technology.
Increase access to technology for all students
Implement 1:1 computers across the district
Establish an ongoing process as a means to evaluate the effective implementation of the technology plan
