Positive Approaches to Technology Integration

Our Approach

CES can help you to assess needs in your school or district, and will tailor a program of training, coaching and consultation to meet those needs. We’ll work with you to design a project that fits into your available time and takes place at your location; addresses your audiences (teachers, leadership, paraprofessionals); and can be supported with coaching for transformation. Educational technology can transform teaching and learning, empower students, better connect us as humans, and create more equity and inclusion.


CES specialists have helped school districts and organizations across Massachusetts. Our extensive partnerships, including our work as certified ISTE training providers, have informed and deepened our understanding of promising practices for the classroom.

Technology is only useful as long as it’s helping us be more human and connected. 

— Casey Daigle

Your confidence in our abilities and positivity about the work is reassuring. You fostered a community with the participants, with whom I now feel comfortable moving forward having candid conversations, sharing ideas, and providing feedback. Thank you for starting off this work on such an optimistic and engaging foot.

— ISTE Certification Course Participant

Our teachers now have more awareness and understanding about how to use Google Chrome in ways that will benefit not only their day-to-day job-related work, but thanks to you, many now have new ways to use technology to enhance the education of our students.

ISTE Certification Provider

ISTE Certification is a new competency-based, vendor-agnostic educator certification based on the ISTE Standards for Educators. This digital credential recognizes educators who understand how to use educational technology for learning in meaningful and transformative ways.

Google Suite for Education

Wherever your district, schools, or educators are on the Google continuum, from basic to advanced, we can create a tailored program of training and coaching to optimize your launch or ongoing implementation of G Suite.

Digital Learning and Instructional Design

We offer consulting, training and guidance to enhance understanding of instructional design principles for online learning, and can assist you in planning and developing your own online learning; and developing digital citizenship skills.

Digital Citizenship

CES supports educators so that they can lead with the positive and partner with students as they explore together the exciting possibilities of new technologies while they learn how to responsibly leverage them.

Digital citizenship includes civic and social engagement, youth empowerment, critical thinking, social-emotional literacy, and social justice. CES helps educators to develop plans for youth-centered digital citizenship programs in your own organizations.

Instructional Innovation

Emerging technologies move fast. Keeping up can be daunting for educators working to support students in adopting new technologies, but working to create thoughtful policy and protocol for their use. CES consultants assist educators with trusted research and perspectives on applying new technology in the classroom, including virtual reality and Artificial Intelligence. The CES team works with districts and schools to provides professional development, educator and organizational consulting, and useful frameworks and tools to address emerging questions in this quickly moving landscape.

Examples of Past Projects

Worcester Public Schools Innovative Teacher Leadership Program

Led the implementation of this program aiming to radically reshape the use of technology district-wide. With a goal of 50 Google Certified Trainers, WPS now has over 90, and the program expanded to include administrators for a current total of 204 iTeachers and iLeaders, and over 33,000 chromebooks in use district-wide.

Facilitating ISTE Certification as an Certification Authorized Provider

From 2018 to the present, starting with a blended model, our team transitioned the content to a fully online model piloted in 2020. We’ve guided and supported hundreds of teachers to their successful certification, creating a community that supports each other and the ongoing work. 

Belchertown Public Schools

The CES team set up Google classroom as an asynchronous learning space to provide a central hub for all Google / EdTech-related learning for all Belchertown educators through the 2023-24 school year. District educators also attend meetings that focus on in-depth conversations, opportunities to dry-run activities (before implementing with learners), and hands-on practice; and will co-teach a lesson with the facilitator, observe a peer, and be observed by a peer. Through the year-long experience, educators have the opportunity to reflect on tec use in the classroom, design interactive lessons, and explore new technologies and how they might be integrated.

Educational Equity through Blended and Personalized Learning

The team designed and taught the EEBPLI Institute, which provided school leaders with a rich and engaging blended experience where they learn to transform their schools with blended and digital learning and personalize education for their students.

Technology in Education Conference Design and Implementation

For three years, the CES team designed and produced western Massachusetts’ only educational technology conference. The conference offered Tech directors, Curriculum directors, and District leaders accessible technology training that genrated excitement and brought excellent edtech practices to the area.
