MCPS Teachers Test Out New Device to Help Inform Future Instructional Technologies

Per Montgomery County Public Schools: MCPS held a Teacher Device Showcase to give teachers the opportunity to test more than 50 devices under consideration for future technology acquisition. Teachers also had the chance to check out new technology to support science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) learning.

Those who attended were encouraged to share input on what device features are most important to them and give feedback in order to inform future purchases and align new technologies with unique classroom needs. Teacher devices will be a new and important part of the refresh cycle starting in Summer 2024.

The STEAM portion of the showcase reflects the Board of Education’s plans to expand the focus on infusing STEAM experiences within the curriculum at different grade levels; expanding pathways, courses, and certifications; and building more systemic access to STEAM experiences beyond the school day were discussed.
