The Bellevue City Schools Department of Technology Coordination consists of three employees. Mark Bishop is Technology Coordinator, Eric Dodd, is the Assistant Technology Coordinator, and Mike Wobser is the technician.
They are responsible for supporting virtually every aspect of the work of the staff, from classroom instructional technology to facilitation of the administrative staff's work with software and security. The department supports telephones, hvac servers, security cameras, software systems, 24 servers, 775 personal computers and laptops, 1800 Chromebooks, 120 iPads, 15 copiers, 125 projectors, interactive white board systems, document cameras, and a wired and wireless infrastructure to link it all together.
Working together with teachers, students, the school board, and administration, Bellevue is working to remain at the forefront of providing learning experiences by interacting with up-to-date equipment, tools, and software. Unlike districts who have adopted a 1 to 1 strategy which exposes students to one type of device, a PC, an iPad, or a Chromebook, Bellevue is unique in trying to make sure that our students are exposed to as many types of technology as possible. Technology is rapidly changing, and we hope that learning several different technologies will encourage our students to understand how to quickly learn yet another new system. We believe this serves our students' futures well, and will prepare them for jobs which don't even exist yet.
We are pleased to serve the Bellevue community and hope that our efforts are helping our students to be prepared for further education and employment when they graduate.
