media specialists K-12 offer instruction and resources in print,
audiovisual, and online formats to provide a foundation for using
libraries and information resources in lifelong learning. The library
program, in collaboration with classroom teachers, specialists, and
staff, supports academic and recreational reading, the development of
research and presentation skills integrating the use of technology, and
media arts/video production. Cambridge school libraries also foster
connections between the school community and local and global
institutions for teaching and learning.
Educational Technology Department ensures that all students, teachers,
administrators, and staff have access to and become proficient users of
technology and that technology becomes a powerfully integrated and
routinely used tool in the Cambridge Public Schools. It strives to make
sure that these resources are used to enhance the delivery of
instruction, to support all areas of the curriculum, and to support the
educational needs of students, staff and community. The Educational
Technology Department offers this support with skills-based and
curriculum-integrated professional development opportunities,
collaborative initiatives with other curriculum departments, and
software and tools that are current and necessary for a 21st teaching
and learning environment.
