Vancouver Public Schools (VPS) hosts an unprecedented third National School Boards Association (NSBA) Technology Leadership Network site visit.
After NSBA visits in 1993 and 1999, VPS is selected for its sustained commitment to the integration of technology into education. More than 100 attendees tour seven schools and the district’s information technology services department. One visitor comments, “Seeing the technology used for authentic learning was impressive. It is refreshing to see new and exciting things happening in the classroom that truly help students explore their passions.” Following the visit to Vancouver, the Learning First Alliance spotlights the district’s efforts as a national success story, and Digital Promise features VPS in a blog post.
