Welcome to the Department of Information and Instructional Technology.
Technology plays a critical role in 21st century learning. In support of the School’s mission, we strive to equip the Haverford community with current, high quality, and secure technology-based services. We seek to provide a learning environment which enhances the classroom experience, improves educational outcomes, and stimulates the growing connection between technology and learning. With the goal of preparing young men to live and work in a dynamic global society, we use state-of-the-art resources to provide the most effective and efficient technology solutions for all instructional and administrative technology needs.
Transformational technology use in education reflects the intentional application of digital technologies to unleash students’ learning expertise, in ways not possible without technology, to achieve ever higher levels of knowledge and mastery. Sonny Magana, educational technology researcher
We believe it is important our students are prepared for a world where digital technology is reshaping our economy, our relations, and our daily lives. Through coaching and various professional learning opportunities, our instructional technology staff partner with faculty on the thoughtful, intentional, and balanced integration of digital-age best practices with specific learning goals. We support our students in developing a healthy, functional relationship to technology. We provide instruction and support in curriculum design and educational software to advance student learning and facilitate the use technology for research, critical thinking, problem solving, decision-making, and innovation.
Members of the IIT Department provide technical support and training for faculty, staff, and administration in their use of computing devices, meeting rooms, A/V equipment, application systems and software, and communication devices. We maintain and support a robust wired and wireless technology infrastructure in a multi-platform environment.
Our Student Technology Advisory Group (STAG) involves students as a vital part of our technology initiatives. STAG enables students to become agents for change, enhance their own learning, and support others in the process. This group of student technology mentors and leaders functions as a liaison between the IIT Department and the students, and provides the student voice around the best use of technology in service of teaching and learning at Haverford.
