The ETC team is composed of educators with years of classroom experience.  We understand how important  time is and we are here to be a resource.  Our goal is to
empower teachers to take an active role in integrating technology into academic standards to improve student learning, and increase effective technology use.

The ETC team researches new technologies in hardware, software and web based resources, then shares the most productive and user friendly tools through class sessions, professional development, on line tutorials and resource links on our web page so that teachers don’t have to spend their limited time searching for ways to enhance the curriculum.
If you’re interested in adding technology, but are not sure how to incorporate it into the classroom, the ETC team is happy to come and work directly with you.  We will help you develop an effective plan to integrate technology into your curriculum and work with you side by side to make sure the lesson is a complete success.
