The Education Technology Department is currently in the process of restructuring the Educational Technology Endorsement program.  As a result, a new cohort will not begin until August 2015.  Information about the new program will be available and distributed to teachers in April 2015.  Even though a cohort will not officially start until 2015,  a few classes will be offered through which participants may earn USOE or SUU credit, and the credits can be applied toward a future Educational Technology Endorsement. Registration is now open for the Digital Storytelling and Online Safety classes.  Register for classes online at Class sizes are limited to 30 participants, and is first come, first served.  Click here for information.


  1. Congratulations to all the Ed Tech Endorsement Graduates! I'm so please to see how invested the Canyons School District in helping teachers to have the training needed to really explore the utility of technology in the classroom. This will surely help accomplish the mission of helping all students to be college or career ready upon leaving our charge!

  2. I loved the video 'Top Ten' list. The teacher makes very valid points and I love how she incorporated a quick and easy slideshow. Canyons is excited to host more teachers in the EdTech Endorsement so let your school EdTech know if you are interested.
