Big Walnut Philosophy of Instructional Technology
  •  Instructional technology should be used to actively engage students, promoting personalized instruction and growth.
  • Instructional technology should be used as a tool to open new learning opportunities that extend into real-world application.
  • Instructional technology shoul supplement, rather than replace, human interaction and hands-on learning experiences.
  • Instructional technology should be purposefully monitored.
  • Instructional technology at the elementary level should consume less than half of students' instructional time, in order to provide balance.
