TCS Digital Transformation
Technology is everywhere--entwined in almost every part of our culture. It affects how we live, work, play, and most importantly learn.
The mission of the TCS Technology Department is to support students, employees, and families by providing and maintaining exceptional technology systems for a professional learning environment in alignment with the district’s mission, vision, and strategic plan.
There are many benefits to including technology in the learning process, a few worth noting:
- If used correctly, mobile devices and the applications they support, will help prepare students for their future careers.
- Integrating technology into the classroom is an effective way to connect with students of all learning styles. It gives students the opportunity to enhance the interaction with their classmates and instructors by encouraging collaboration.
- Technology transforms the learning experience. Students have access to an incredible amount of new opportunities. From learning how to code to learning how to better collaborate across teams and with their instructors--technology empowers students to be more creative and be more connected. New tech has super-charged how we learn today.
- Using technology in the classroom gives teachers and other faculty members the opportunity to develop their student's digital citizenship skills. It's one thing to use mobile devices, it's a completely other thing to know how to use them correctly and responsibly.
The TCS Instructional Technology Team is committed to implementing the digital transformation by engaging, empowering, and assisting all teachers, students, and stakeholders to become lifelong learners who are prepared to thrive in the future.
