* Since our primary goal is to serve students and classrooms, we are often requested to work off site on regularly scheduled days. Our "anchor" at each school is highly flexible to meet the needs of teachers and students.
In Mercer Island, technology is integrated into the classroom experience to support curriculum and the district's 2020 vision: Our students will thrive in the cognitive, digital, and global world while sustaining their passion and inspiration for learning.
| Technology Integration Program|
To support teachers' work to integrate technology effectively into their instructional practice, two elementary teachers on special assignment, TOSAs, funded by the levy travel between our three elementary schools. What's a TOSA? Glad you asked! That's us! Kara Millsap (PreK-2 focus) and Julie Hovind (3-5 focus). Julie left her 5th grade classroom to take on this role four years ago. Kara stepped into this postition from her first grade class last year. Together we are here to serve teachers and students as we work to integrate technology into classroom practice to enhance instructional value. Curriculum design to find integration opportunities in units, project ideas, training on software or technology standards, model lessons, grant and pilot implementation support, help in the lab, work with individual students and small groups -- you name it and we are on it! Please ask if and when you have curriculum needs and training requests!
