The Issaquah School District is committed to supporting teachers in successful integration of technology in their eaching.
To that end, the Issaquah Technology Project was created in 2000. Teachers who participate in this year-long program receive technology coupled with intense training and work centered around successful integration of technology.
Hundreds of ISD teachers have completed the program and are now bringing that technology to their students.
Training begins with a 5-day, immersive training session at the Sleeping Lady in Leavenworth, WA. During this time teachers learn about software and hardware available to them through ISD. They also receive equipment that they can use to support their teaching.
Every year, we’ve chosen slightly different configurations of equipment. This last year, participants received teacher equipment that included a laptop (Surface Pro 4) and a teacher iPad. Additionally participants chose a ‘path’ for equipment to be used with students. They chose either an iPad path (10 student iPads) or a laptop path (10 Dell laptops.)
