How We Use Technology

Rivserside Schools believes technology can be transformative, and we encourage students to use technology to enhance their learning. Technology is used to develop in our students the skills they need to contribute in a connected world and to extend research and information fluency. We use technology to facilitate creativity and innovation, and to support communication and collaboration. We strive to develop in our students a sound understanding of technology operations and concepts in a controlled learning environment. We want our students to be active contributors in our connected world. We hope to instill in our students a strong sense of digital citizenship by guiding them to act safely, legally, and responsibly in their use of technology. Adult supervision and a filtering appliance are used to reduce the exposure to unwanted sites on our computers. As a district, we configure the instructional experience toward the development of graduates who are ready for success when they graduate from our district.
