Technology Vision Statement

The following Technology Mission and Vision statements for the La Porte Community School Corporation have provided the direction for technology purchases, upgrades, professional development, and curricular integration in our school corporation over the last several years.  These statements in conjunction with a well-defined Technology Strategic Plan have provided the foundation for our Digital Learning and One to World Learning initiatives.

Technology Vision Statement

 La Porte Community School Corporation envisions a learning community where:

  • Students are engaged in a challenging curriculum where students are engaged and actively involved.
  • All students have equitable access to technology, connectivity, and online resources.
  • Students are information literate so that they can face the challenges of living and working in a global economy and society.
  • Technology is integrated into a challenging and interdisciplinary curriculum which addresses students’ specific needs, developmental levels, and learning styles.
  • Technology is used as a tool to improve the depth of student work and provide an environment where all students, including at-risk and those with special needs, can become successful students, citizens, problem solvers, and life-long learners.
  • Technology is used to improve communications, improve productivity, and enhance and enrich curriculum.
  • Staff development is ongoing focusing on instructional and administrative applications for teachers, administrators, and all support staff.
  • Our infrastructure supports voice, video, online and data applications in a safe and secured wired/wireless environment.

 

LPCSC Engages LPHS PR Students

The LPHS Public Relations students are using all forms of digital media to inform the community about activities and students' successes across our school corporation. These PR students set up meetings with each of our school principals, perform interviews with staff and students, shoot and edit videos and upload clips to the school corporation's web site, Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, and other forms of social media. The students enrolled in this class learn web design, filming, video editing, and social media ethics as well as the concepts and processes of good public relations coverage. They attend some after-school and evening events in order to cover all that our students are accomplishing. This is another example of LaPorte school corporation's commitment to actively engaging students in the "1:world" concept of technology integration.
