Technology for Learning
Ritenour students use technology tools that bring learning to life. As a Google district, Ritenour is committed to continuing to integrate technology more effectively in classroom instruction. With Google, Ritenour students have the opportunity to see the world as they have never seen it before.
Ritenour classrooms have updated technology, including:
Wireless networks at all schools
Ceiling mounted projectors in every classroom
Mounted speakers in every classroom
Interactive White Boards
Laptop carts for classroom use
Learning resources, courseware, and services to improve education's effectiveness and inspire everyone to go further
The National Education Technology Standards for Students (NETS-S) have been adopted by the District. These research-based standards serve as a guide for integrating technology to maximize learning and achievement in all of our schools.
LoTi (Levels of Technology Integration) research helps teachers develop and assess classroom lessons – ensuring that they are rigorous, relevant, and engaging, and that they promote student-centered learning, higher order thinking and problem solving.
