What We Do…
The Learning and Teaching Technologies Department is tasked with leading the visioning and implementation of new information and communication educational technologies at CDNIS. The LTT Department works with all stake holders to help them manage the complexities of navigating through the technology initiatives at CDNIS.
Core to the work of the LTT Department is helping teachers and students meet the goals of both our CDNIS and IB mission statements. In an era of globalization and internationalism, in a time of rapid change and innovation brought on by new technologies, it is the responsibility of the LTT Department to support teachers and students as they meet the challenges of 21st century, technology-enriched teaching and learning environments.
The LTT Department works directly with teachers and students to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to integrate and then infuse technologies into both curriculum and instruction. The LTT Dept provides teachers with multiple strategies and opportunities for professional development throughout the year. The LTT team also supports teachers and students in classrooms as teachers work towards infusing technology into their lessons.
