Technology in Education

Empowering teacher and learner through technology. 
Creating a culture of evidence and inquiry for continuous improvement.

We live in a digital age where technology connects us to the world. We learn on-ground and on-line. We talk and text. We work on site and remotely. We connect and communicate personally and digitally.

The latest advances in technology offer unprecedented opportunities to foster innovation and transform teaching and learning in the traditional classroom environment through robust tools, technologies and resources like online videos, webinars, podcasts and wikis, alongside computational thinking, digital archives, and unlimited access to virtual information resources and planning tools.

Technology in the service of education is equally influential.

When community colleges focus on the effective use of technology to improve communication between students, faculty, advisors, support staff and administrators, everyone wins.  Technology-enabled advising tools connect student and advisor with ease and flexibility and help students choose the right program, select courses and stay on track for a credential, and can be complemented by early alert systems. Two-way communications and interaction flow seamlessly, resulting in greater efficiencies. Analytics enable institutions to utilize data, statistical analysis  and predictive models to gain insights, make decisions and to act strategically. Student outcome and progress measurements yield trend data and benchmarks that aid institutional change efforts and continuous improvement.
