Department of Technology
Welcome to the Edison Public School's Department of Technology
The Department of Technology is committed to the improvement of teaching and learning by linking the appropriate information and technologies to education.
The Department of Technology provides leadership in the use of computers and related technologies, working collaboratively with schools and departments to ensure the effective use of technology across the disciplines. Access and the proper use of technology will enhance the learning process to better prepare our students to meet todays and tomorrow’s challenges in a changing world.
As a result of the Edison Technology Program, students will understand important issues in a technology-based society and will exhibit ethical behavior in the use of technology. Students will access, apply, interpret, analyze, synthesize, and communicate information using a variety of technologies. In addition, they will use the computer as a tool for problem solving and logical thinking.
The Technology Department supports all aspects of information technology, including Internet connectivity, wireless networking, various databases and servers, the phone system, and the software and devices used every day. Edison Public Schools has over 25,000 devices connected to the network, which all require maintenance and support. In addition, each classroom has a projector and interactive whiteboard.
Some of the applications which the Technology Department supports include Genesis Information System, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, Google Chrome OS, Adobe Creative Cloud, and Apple iOS, as well as many different cloud applications.
