The mission of the Great Neck Public Schools Instructional Technology Program is to enhance and support instruction and learning with information and communications technology. It is our belief that a 21st Century education spanning elementary, middle, and high school requires an electronic learning device as a central educational tool for all subjects and curriculum areas. Our philosophy is that technology integration should be a pervasive, seamless, collaborative, and transparent part of both instruction and learning. Toward that end, we have implemented technical support, technology committees, wireless networks, student technology leadership, electronic workflow furniture, and professional development support systems to facilitate modern classroom learning environments that actively engage and inspire our students and staff. The centerpiece of this vision is our 1:1 iPad Initiative that currently spans Grades 4-12 on the north side of town, and Grades 5-11 n the south side of town, but our focus is not on the technology but rather on the people who power the devices and programs. Below you will find links to specific information about our 1:1 iPad Initiative at the district and school levels.
