Granite Educational Technology Department
This year the Educational Technology department debuted an online learning course on classroom technology for all new teachers in Granite School District. Working with teacher mentors and school technology specialists, new teachers complete modules and earn badges as they master a few of the learning tools available in the district.
The Educational Technology Endorsement Program (ETEP) is an intensive 2-year professional development program provided to a select group of Granite teachers by the Granite Educational Technology department. It comprises a blend of evening face-to-face sessions and online learning in which teachers explore ways to leverage classroom technology in a constructivist, student-centered approach to increase instructional effectiveness and student achievement. If you have any questions about the ETEP program please contact Kristen Johnson in the Educational Technology department.
Congratulations to the first graduating classes of Granite’s Educational Technology Endorsement Program!

kids not turned on and ready to go?
Here are ideas to get back in the race…
make review lots of fun and pick up the pace!
We’ll cover several digital tools that can be used to make reviews exciting rather than using routine drills to review core content.
2 licensure points will be awarded upon successful completion of the class.
The Granite School District FIRST LEGO League qualifying tournament was held on January 16, 2016 at Granger High School. Granite School District’s Educational Technology Department sponsors 30 teams in the First Lego League. We had a tremendous amount of fun, and learned a lot this year!
- Over 280 student participants attended
- supported by over 35 coaches and assistant coaches…
- and 50 volunteers!
The students were excited to see approximately 500 parents attend to watch their LEGO Robots compete. In addition to competing in the robot games, the teams also explained their robot designs, presented an innovative product to address the issue of Trash, and solved a problem as a team during judging sessions.
