Classroom Technology Integration

Carmel Clay Schools values innovation in the classroom and teacher knowledge of new technological opportunities. The curriculum adoption process provides many technology tools for use within classrooms, with district-approved tools included in the Responsible Use Policy and Guidelines. 

Teachers can analyze new classroom technology tools and recommend their use within their classrooms using LearnPlatform. The tools listed below help teachers review privacy policies and terms of use for new apps, extensions, websites, or software they may wish to use within their classroom.

Before You Begin...Choose Your Tech Wisely!

  • Stick to tools designed with education in mind, especially those which require student accounts. Products that commercialize student learning are not recommended.
  • Before students may create accounts or teachers create accounts for students, the tool must go through the LearnPlatform request process and the district must have a signed data privacy agreement with the vendor.  
  • Avoid apps, games, or websites that seem focused on advertising.
  • Be cautious with tools that claim to be for education but are also aimed at consumers or the business world.

Consider the following questions

  1. What is the learning goal?
  2. Does the tool align with Indiana standards?
  3. Is there another tool already approved that provides a similar function?
  4. What, if any, age restriction is there in order to use this tool? (e.g. not for children 13 and under)
