Technology Integration

Technology Integration is expected and modeled in all classes. Data driven intervention is taught throughout our education courses. For example, EDUC 3302 Instructional Strategies student learner outcomes includes disaggregate class and district student achievement data (TAPR or Campus/District Benchmark report) to guide instruction and development of student interventions and teacher instruction. Clinical teachers are expected to participate in district PLC groups and learn how to separate data and modify instruction based upon benchmark results. Methods courses in reading and math emphasize using test results to modify instruction.

In addition, Wayland requires one course dedicated to technology integration in the classroom. The course description, student learner outcomes and alignment to the TEKS are below.

Course Number and Title: EDIT 2310 Technology in the Classroom
