Jan. 11 ActivTable demo shows the power of IT

Program representatives from Douglas ESD got some hands-on time on Jan. 11 with a Promethean ActivTable, an interactive instructional tool brought us for the day by our Information Technology Department. The table allows up to six students at a time to use web browsers and resources as a team accomplishing a common goal. It’s geared for students from kindergarten through sixth grades and can be used by students with special needs.

Information Technology Services

We live in a wired world today, and through several IT services for schools Douglas ESD IT department helps our component districts navigate the devices and systems that help students prepare for work and life in the Technology Age. We do that in many ways, including adding or combining with smaller districts to reduce costs and increase buying power.
