Technology is being used to differentiate instruction and enhance student achievement within our districts. Teachers are critical to keep this shift moving toward the infusion of technology for using diagnostic information for planning and assessment, differentiating instruction, and modelling technology integration. ARESC provides technical assistance, professional development, and modelling of technology infusion and integration by providing training and support for best practices in technology. From requiring the use of technology to register for training via ESCWeb to providing training via Video Conference, ARESC facilitates and provides training to make technology integration possible.

“Technology is not a silver bullet. It’s only as good as the teachers … using it as one more tool to help inspire, and teach, and work through problems.”
— President Barrack Obama, November 19, 2014
