The Instructional Technology department at LHRIC aspires to build a community of educational professionals through the exchange of ideas and to leverage creative and innovative use of technology in a global collaborative environment for the advancement of all learners.

We provide professional development for teachers and administrators that is differentiated for each learner, each classroom, each school, and district.  We aim to spark the innovation, creativity, reflection and enthusiasm for teaching and learning that brought them into education in the first pace.

Our approach to the professional development design ensures that experiences are scalable, replicable, relevant, and the experiences are fun!  We offer job embedded cohorts, online courses, workshops, webinars, professional learning communities, peer to peer sessions, on demand coaching, vendor run sessions,  and everything in between.

Our ultimate goal is to make sure each adult learner has the skills and requisite knowledge to effectively amp up their practice through the integration of technology resources.

    Model Schools: Take It Outdoors Series: "The One with the Apps" (Summer Edition)

    Spaces - whether indoors, outdoors, virtual, or in person - are worth considering as part of the instructional design process. There's also an intrinsic value to being outdoors: it's good for students' social, emotional, and mental well-being, even more so as they return to school after several traumatic months. Having students learning outdoors is not new, and mobile technology has given all of us plenty of reason to enjoy the great outdoors. In this first of a series focusing on learning outdoors with technology, we will provide ample examples of mobile apps that will help you and your students develop a greater appreciation for natural phenomena in various disciplines.
