ITS is committed to providing innovative and research-based instructional technology integration solutions and strategies to the Kamehameha learning community, particularly our administration, faculty and students, through collaborative professional development opportunities. In addition to supporting the Hawaii, Kapālama and Maui campuses, ITS is responsible for providing technology integration support to the Community Education Implementation Unit (CEI), which includes the Community-based Early Childhood Education (CBECE) division and its preschools throughout the state.
Our ability to service and communicate with a diverse learning community is greatly leveraged by the use of digital video and video conferencing technologies. Our goals and objectives are based on the premise that the positive impact of technology on teaching and learning can effectively be achieved with proper support paradigms and thoughtful technology planning.
