Digital Learning & Information Technology
Welcome to Digital Learning & Information Technology @Wilton Public Schools!
Vision for Digital Learning
Students and staff members in the Wilton Public Schools leverage technology to innovate, collaborate, think critically and contribute meaningfully in a globally connected society. Technology in the Wilton Public Schools empowers students to excel in a personalized learning environment through rigorous curriculum that fosters authentic problem solving, empathy, and social responsibility.
Wilton Public Schools is entering its third year of a comprehensive, K-12 implementation of our Ready-Access Digital Learning Plan!
Our plan puts students first by supporting teaching and learning anywhere, anytime and in all ways. Ready-access describes an environment that provides digital tools and resources when and how they will best enhance, support and advance learning. Empowering our students and ensuring our teachers have the infrastructure, tools and pedagogical knowledge are critical components. As we all embark on this exciting journey into what's possible through the use of online tools, expertise, and connections. We are committed on providing teachers, parents and students the space, place and resources to meet their learning goals with abundant choice. Ours is a three-year phase-in to give everyone an opportunity to explore, share, learn and celebrate with each other. Check back often for updates.
A true, whole-district effort to transform what students have available to them (environments), the flexibility of our curriculum to provide opportunities for real-world, meaningful, and relevant learning experiences, and our staff who directly instructs and supports our students (our Library Learning Commons teams at each school), our teachers, our administrators and, of course, the fuel that makes it run in the background, our Information Technology team are part of a whole team effort for the benefit of all students.
At Wilton, the departments of Digital Learning, headed by Fran Kompar, Director of Digital Learning, and Information Technology, under the supervision of Erik Haakonsen, Director of Technology work together to meet the goals of our Digital Learning Plan.
