KENILWORTH, NJ – The need for more school technology developed overnight. The opportunities to use it more strategically continue coming to Kenilworth Public Schools, including a new technology lab that will debut at David Brearley Middle-High School in September.
Of course, teachers have been at the forefront of adapting technology for instruction. In Kenilworth, they have used video-game-type elements in their online lessons. They’ve leveraged educational management systems like Google Classroom and Seesaw to differentiate learning experiences. Teachers even took their own tech knowledge up a notch by participating in more 60 professional learning sessions and more than 100 individual coaching sessions on the subject.
Now the district is updating its vision for technology based on the lessons of the past year, and it’s asking a team of teachers to help.
