The Brooklyn City School District envisions a learning community where students and staff work in collaboration to integrate technology into a rigorous, interdisciplinary curriculum. Students become responsible for their own learning, while teachers coach and mentor students through authentic learning experiences. To do so, teachers and students have access to and utilize a variety of appropriate technology tools to support learning across all curricular areas. Teachers have the data and information needed to individualize instruction and assessment as well as make other important instructional decisions.
