Enterprise Instructional Technology

Rickw Wahlstrom's profile

Cascade Technology Alliance provides services for 53 districts within the four ESDs of Columbia Gorge ESD, Multnomah ESD, Northwest Regional ESD and Willamette ESD. 41 of the 53 districts are below 5,000 students. We have provided instructional technology services for districts on a limited basis usually by providing .2 or .4 FTE on-site staff. What I have observed is that this method of 1 to 2 years of instructional technology support has not created lasting change within the participating districts. I’m looking for ideas on how instructional technology can be infused into smaller districts at a reasonable cost with a measurable benefit to kids.
