Westwood’s Vision for Instructional Technology


Technology facilitates learning that is challenging, engaging, and effective.


Westwood’s Mission Statement for Instructional Technology

Westwood Public Schools envisions and effectively supports an environment where technology is integrated throughout the curriculum to facilitate student-centered, engaging, collaborative learning. All Westwood educators possess the mindset and skills – technological and pedagogical – necessary to facilitate student use of technology for critical thinking, responsible use, problem solving, and inquiry.  Educators and students demonstrate initiative, independence, innovation, and persistence in their pursuit of the skills and competencies necessary to adapt to and thrive in an ever-changing society.


District policies and procedures reflect a solid understanding of the essential role of technology in the education of all students.  The district ensures that technology-based tools, resources, and supports are equitably available for all students and staff and that the district’s technology infrastructure is driven by the teaching and learning needs of the district’s students and staff.  The infrastructure is designed and implemented and continually assessed to serve the needs of individuals for flexible, powerful, and user-friendly technology tools, systems, and resources.
