In Loudoun County Public Schools, technology is an integrated skill and activity. Unlike "special" content areas such as music, physical education, and art, computer activities are intended to be integrated with other content areas rather than function as a stand-alone discipline. Mr. McGuigan, the Technology Resource Teacher, and the Technology Assistant, Mr. Julian Ferrer, are available to assist teachers with lesson research, planning and delivery.
This is Mr. McGuigan's 17th year in Loudoun County as a Technology Resource Teacher and his 30th year overall in Education. Before becoming a Technology Resource Teacher Mr. McGuigan was a Technology Education teacher in Frederick County, VA where he taught photography, Manufacturing Technology and Drafting.
The mission of the Instructional Technology Department is to improve teaching and learning through the appropriate use of technology. Throughout the school year, students will engage in a variety of technology-rich learning activities.
