Director of Technology

The Technology team at Tecumseh Public Schools is working to ensure that students have access to the latest reliable and relevant technology in their classrooms, media centers, and at home . We have an abundance of technology resources for our students to use in and out of the classroom. Our goal is to provide easy to use, reliable technology, that enhances both the learning process and the learners experience, in a way that is both natural and effect for the teacher.

We are now in our fourth year with a 1:1 take home program using Google Chromebooks. This year we will have Almost 1000 Students with their own Chromebook to research, work on projects, and turn in paperless homework.

We have implemented Google Apps for Education. There has been an outpouring of shared ideas and teaching methods across the district, which has resulted in a more collaborative educational culture. Using Google Docs, Chromebooks and Gmail has allowed students to share information in real-time, making it possible to work on shared projects. Google Apps has fundamentally changed how students are learning and how teachers are instructing. The collaborative working and learning environment has moved outside the walls of the classroom.
