Technology Department

The mission of the Forsan ISD Technology Department is to effectively integrate technology into the district in a way that fully aligns with district mission and vision. District technology is used to develop and reinforce instructional objectives, encourage creative and critical thinking skills, and enhance teacher application and delivery.

In June 2021, the governor signed House Bill (HB) 3489, which added new Texas Education Code (TEC) §38.0231 requiring the Texas Education Agency (TEA), in consultation with the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC), to develop and distribute model health and safety best practice guidelines for the use of digital devices in local education agencies (LEAs) beginning with the 2023-2024 school year.

Digital Citizenship: Resource Roundup
Check out Edutopia's collection of articles, videos, and other resources on internet safety, cyberbullying, digital responsibility, and media and digital literacy.

Digital citizenship is "the norms of appropriate, responsible behavior with regard to technology use." It is the combination of technical and social skills that enable a person to be successful and safe in the information age. Just like literacy and numeracy initiatives which provide people with the skills to ' participate in the work force, digital literacy has become an essential skill to be a confident, connected, and actively involved life long learner.'
