Thank you to everyone who joined us for this year's Henrico 21 Opening Ceremony and Student Showcase

Welcome to the website for the Department of Instructional Technology!

Today’s students live in a digital world and come to school with different expectations and needs. Through the Teaching and Learning Initiative, Henrico schools are preparing students for the 21st-century by providing meaningful instruction and improving academic performance. The Department of Instructional Technology works with teachers, principals, and content specialists to identify and implement digital resources and supporting technologies that will ensure a solid 21st century learning experience for Henrico students.  The department staff includes instructional technology specialists and instructional technology resource teachers who provide consultation, training and support for the integration of technology into the instructional program. Henrico 21 is the overarching concept that embodies this work.
