Technology support for school districts.
For over 40 years, Custom’s education technology consulting and implementation team has been providing technology support for school districts to enhance learning and improve student learning outcomes. This has afforded us a unique perspective of technology’s evolving influence in the classroom. But our knowledge goes deeper than just technical skills. Our education specialists have extensive backgrounds working in the education field itself – as K-12 administrators, faculty members, and IT staff.
With the advent of the pandemic, the way teachers teach, and students learn was turned upside down. Many students, parent and teachers were frustrated as they tried to adapt to the new normal.
To address these frustrations, we have developed two new offerings:
Supporting School Districts
Today’s digital native students are born into an age where technology is pervasive. Their interactions with digital devices and applications begin at an early age. It’s not surprising then, that schools are shifting their traditional teaching tools from books to electronic devices, from chalkboards to interactive whiteboards – implementing technology to foster learning with greater impact. But integrating these technology resources can be challenging. At Custom Computer Specialists, we understand the importance of our children and the future of our country. With that in mind, we always make sure while we are helping to solve our customer opportunities, we are continuing to educate ourselves on the needs of the Education sector and the demand on the system to provide the best possible solution.
