Teaching, Learning, & Innovation

Renee Smith-Faulkner, Associate Superintendent at Castleberry ISD

Teaching, Learning, and Innovation

For many years in districts throughout our country classroom education and the technology used to support that classroom instruction were treated as separate entities. This approach served students well for a long time. However, at Castleberry ISD we believe the time has come for a more integrated approach. Technology in the classroom is becoming more prevalent, and is often occupying a more direct role in the classroom. Because of this we have created the Teaching, Learning, and Innovation, or T.L.I., department. T.L.I. serves as an example of how technology, instructional technology, administration, and classroom instruction can blend together and work as a team to ensure that our students experience a 21st century learning environment complete with all of the tools that they need to succeed.
