ITS Educational Technology Department

This department plays a pivotal role in transforming education through the thoughtful integration of technology into teaching and learning. By coaching schools on effective technology use, they ensure that classrooms become dynamic spaces where innovative solutions lead to better student outcomes and enhance student engagement. Volusia County students and educators are equipped with tools to create personalized learning experiences that cater to individual needs. The department collaborates with schools to create a tech-rich environment that fosters creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration. Our district’s classrooms are increasing their digital readiness through 1:1 student technology, interactive displays, educational apps, assistive technological tools, and virtual simulations.

Beyond technology integration, VCS recognizes the importance of nurturing responsible digital citizens. In an interconnected world, students must navigate the digital landscape with integrity, empathy, and ethical awareness. The department actively promotes digital literacy, emphasizing online safety, privacy, and respectful communication. By adhering to the International Society for Technology in Education Standards, students learn to evaluate information critically, engage in respectful online discourse, and protect their digital footprint. Moreover, the department instills a global perspective, encouraging students to think beyond themselves.
