The goal of the WDMESC Computer Technology Program is to provide technical support to WDMESC member school districts and personnel. This support will include assistance in instructional technology; information processing; installation, configuration, and troubleshooting of computer networks and related assemblies; staff development and E-rate application guidance and assistance.
Member districts receive assistance in implementation of network systems in their districts. Technologists are also available to assist the districts in evaluation of needs, planning, and purchasing of new equipment, and in special software application development for specific needs within the co-op and among member districts.
It is the aim of the WDMESC technology program to provide in-service training on blended learning and instructional technology as well as in the operation and use of computer hardware and software. With that goal in mind, the technology staff has installed a computer network lab at 114 North Main, Beebe, AR. The lab is available for training sessions on instructional technology, basic computer operations, application usage, and network administration training for district-level coordinators.
The Technology Coordinator position is a competitive grant, funded through DESE.
