A panel discussion comprised of local leaders from Alhambra Elementary School District, Dysart Unified School District, Higley Unified School District, Tucson Unified School District, and Vail Unified School District will share how they are implementing technology in support of curriculum development, instruction, and assessment. ATI will discuss the newest Galileo enhancements designed to provide educators, administrators, and content specialists with technology to transform and integrate local curriculum, assessment, and instructional practices in ways that:
- Facilitate local initiatives to construct online digital curriculums including Instructional Units specifying local scope and sequence, lessons, assignments, and assessments aligned to rigorous standards and delivered/updated in real-time;
- Effectively and efficiently measure student progress and proficiency in achieving mastery of rigorous standards including the use of Technology Enhanced (TE) items and performance-based assessments rendered in the course of dialogic instruction and designed to prepare students for the new upcoming state assessments; and
- Integrate technology in other content areas to use in everyday instruction and build the capacity of teachers' use of technology as an instructional tool.
