Welcome to Biblio-Tech, the Bedford Public Schools' K-12 Technology and Library Media Department's news update! The Technology and Library Media Department provides technical and instructional support to students, teachers and administrators throughout the district. This site is a way for us to share the exciting work that is being done in Bedford's K-12 classrooms.
Our work supports the district's belief in promoting student-centered learning by integrating technology in new and effective ways to enhance teaching and learning. Bedford’s K-12 students use technology to build their own personal learning networks and collaborate with others locally and around the world. Students work with others to creatively solve problems by applying their knowledge and skills to create content through the use of interactive technologies, which allow students to be challenged in ways that are appropriate for their individual abilities, ages and learning styles. The use of multi-modal technologies enables students to access and create content in various formats, such as text, images, audio files, and videos, which promotes independent learning, differentiated instruction and increased understanding of content. Students engage in higher order thinking skills through the use of interactive multi-modal technologies as they become active, self-directed, and discerning learners, both inside and outside the classroom.

The Technology Showcase tab shares highlights of a district-wide technology event where students in grades K-12 presented how technology is used in their classrooms as a tool to enhance teaching and learning.
