Technology integration in the curricula entails the teachers and students seamless use of technology as a tool to accomplish a given task in a disciplined study that promotes higher-order thinking skills. It is the role of the Bureau of Educational Technology to ensure that all students have access to digital technologies with significant opportunity to obtain the skills necessary to become full participants in the civic, economic, and educational life of the community. These goals are met through the following programs and tools.
