Plainville Community Schools Featured In CAPSS' Technology Report And Video
The Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents (CAPSS) Technology Committee recently published a comprehensive report entitled "Tomorrow's Technology Today" focusing on technology transforming teaching and learning in Connecticut schools, together with the release of a video on the same topic. Plainville Community Schools was featured in both the video and the report, highlighting best practices in the innovative use of technology district-wide.
The report, which was based on the results of a statewide survey conducted by the Technology Committee of the Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents, identifies specific ways in which technology will change teaching and learning in the future and provides school district personnel with advice on how to use technology to transform learning. The report highlights Plainville' s transformation toward 1:1 student access to technologies and a focus on teacher professional learning, noting that "as teachers demonstrated more proficiency in developing technology infused lessons, the district invested in technology purchased for student usage at school and at home, and teachers became Google certified to support school-wide transformation." The report also includes an in-depth look at Plainville Community Schools’ use of technology entitled "One District's Path To Transformation" �" outlining everything from Plainville's Professional Learning & Development to Diverse Learning Needs, Infrastructure, Family Engagement, Instructional Practice, Progress Monitoring, Leadership, and more. Students and faculty members from Louis Toffolon Elementary School are also featured in the accompanying technology focused video recently released by CAPSS. In the video, Plainville's comprehensive technology use is featured, and Toffolon students, together with faculty members Anne Carnevale and Sue Fabrizio demonstrate the innovative use of technology in the classroom and beyond while highlighting individualized learning and best practices.
"I am proud that Plainville was featured as a district that has been transformative in technology integration. Our teachers have worked hard to engage our students utilizing technological tools and resources," commented Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Maureen Brummett.
