    Instructional Technology Staff Purpose:
    Instructional Technology falls under the Curriculum and Learning Department umbrella. The purpose of the Instructional Technology Staff in Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD is to help teachers integrate technology into classroom curriculum and provide district staff with the needed support and training so that district software-based programs are utilized to the fullest potential.

    Support in the Classroom
    We're here to plan with you, team teach, model technology integration instruction, or anything else that will help you integrate technology into your curriculum.
    Professional Development Opportunities
    We provide technology-related professional development opportunities for EMS ISD faculty and staff. Be sure to sign up for a class today in Eduphoria: Workshop. You can see presentation materials from many of our trainings here (or by clicking Technology Workshops on the left.)

    District System Support
    We work with all employees - paraprofessionals, teachers, auxiliary staff, and administrators to train and support technology district systems. Instructions are available for everything from Office 365 to Eduphoria to Skyward Gradebook to Schoolwires!
