Instructional Technology

  • Yorkville School District 115 believes that integrating technology into the everyday learning environment is vital to the teaching and learning process. The district is served by an Instructional Technology Specialist (ITS) who will provide learning opportunities to teachers in order to use technology to enhance and personalize instruction in and out of the classroom. The ITS creates materials in a variety of learning modes (video, hands-on, document-based) for teachers, and presents training sessions across the district in one-on-one, small group, and large group settings. Teachers use educational technology to support the delivery of instructional content and to provide additional opportunities for students to engage with the learning process. TOSAs (Teachers on Special Assignment), have been added to the staff to assist in a variety of areas.
