Our Mission

  • kids using robots

    The Integrated Technology Support Team is dedicated to providing all learners, both special and general education, with the tools and technologies they need to be successful students in today’s ever-changing classroom. In addition, we seek to ensure that every educator has the skills needed to integrate technology tools to provide their students with high quality instruction.

    Our team includes professionals with extensive knowledge and expertise in Assistive Technology, Augmentative and Alternative Communication, Educational Technologies and Instructional Support.  By leveraging our combined expertise and continuously monitoring trends and emerging tools in educational and assistive technology, we are equipped to promote the most up-to-date, research-based tools and supports and evaluate the appropriateness and effectiveness of these supports for learners of all abilities. We also work side by side with educators and families to identify appropriate technologies and strategies to support the successful implementation of tools.

Professional Development

  • smiling workshop participants

    Through the Bergen County Educational Technology Training Center (ETTC), we are committed to serving educators by providing professional development opportunities on topics that are relevant to today's classroom environment. While most of our offerings are developed and presented by the Technology Integration Team, we welcome outside presenters who bring unique and innovative offerings that are of benefit to educators and administrators.

    Our workshops are also available for on-site presentation. Let us join you on your PD days. We are fully prepared to modify current offerings or customize a workshop for your staff’s specific needs.
