Innovation
The Bastrop ISD Technology Department focuses on innovation.  From implementing iPads to interactive white boards, we work to provide the most innovative tools for our teachers and students.  Students have opportunities to participate in robotics, web design, animation, and programming classes.  Students may collaborate via an internal district Google Apps account to publish digital content.  Teachers have access to anytime, anywhere, interactive professional development through online courses.  Through these tools and training we continuously strive to create an environment where technology facilitates the needs of 21st century learners.
