We build teacher capacity to ensure high levels of learning for all students through the effective use of technology and other innovative practices in realizing the Alpine Vision for Learning.
Facets of Technology Support
The administrative/leadership team of the district or school should be on board with the pedagogical reasons this tool is supported for teacher use. Are they comfortable with the philosophy, methods, and effectiveness of its use? The principal is responsible for the teaching and learning that takes place in a school and should be a part of the approval process.
Student Data Privacy
Does the application or software use align with the district policy of not sharing more than student name and district email with technology partners, or has the company signed a Data Privacy Agreement? Are teachers including use of this tool in the student disclosure document?
Licensing & Provisioning Accounts
Who will create and maintain student and staff accounts? Have Single-Sign-On and data transfers been explored? Who pays for the licensing?
Support and Troubleshooting
Who will provide timely troubleshooting and other support when needs arise? This would include ensuring there is a support avenue and contract at the company.
Who will provide the initial and ongoing training?
