Dr. EcklerDr. Michelle Eckler, Supervisor





The Department of Technology for Teaching and Learning is focused on ensuring that teachers and students have access to quality technology tools that are integrated or "blended" into classroom instruction.  Dr. Eckler works closely with the network specialists and technicians in the Computer Technology Center to ensure all students and staff have access to the tools they need to be successful.

Some of the department goals include:

  • Ensure that teachers and students have the 21st century technology skills needed to be successful in an every-changing technological world;
  • Provide teachers with the resources needed to seamlessly blend technology into their daily instruction;
  • Support the use of technology to analyze data and make instructional decisions in the classroom.

Dr. Eckler maintains a YouTube channel, a blog of technology tips and tricks, and an internal district site with resources specifically designed for WPS for staff.  Links to these are below.
