Welcome to the USD 327 Technology page. Our vision for excellence includes the use of technology to support the total educational process. Students, parents, and educators will use communication and information technologies to enhance and expand the traditional role of education in the Ellsworth community. We believe the basic goal of education has not changed, that is to prepare our students for life-long learning and success in a changing society using 21st century skills. However , the tools and instructional methods to achieve these goals have advanced dramatically. Technologies such as computers, networks, and wide area communications offer tremendous opportunities to students and educators as a way to improve life within our community and a link to a world outside of Ellsworth. USD 327 has the responsibility for developing curriculum and applying instructional methods enriched with technology and in ensuring that our students and teachers are proficient users of these new technologies.
