Welcome to Instructional Technology
Integrate. Innovate. Inspire.
As part of its core mission to inspire and equip, Spartanburg School District 7 believes the use of technology can greatly support learning and instruction in our classrooms. In conjunction with our outstanding teachers, our 7Ignites initiative aims to create a truly student-centered, 21st century learning environment. Equipped with a plethora of state-of-the art technologies that includes mobile devices, interactive panels, sound systems and document cameras, each classroom provides a truly interactive learning environment where every student can engage in experiences that assist them in reaching their full learning potential.
What started as a bold initiative in 2013, our 1:1 digital immersion has transformed into a nationally recognized program that has brought opportunities to engage and inspire our teachers and students. Superintendent Dr. Russell Booker describes Seven Ignites as a "moral imparative", where devices in the hands of every student and teacher in grades 2-12 has brought an abundance of opportunities to engage all of our students in critical skills that will lead them to success in the classroom and beyond.
