The Instructional Technology Initiative (ITI) is the Los Angeles Unified School District’s signature investment in technology. Originally planned to provide technology devices to every teacher and student in the 640,000-student district, ITI aimed to transform learning throughout the district by providing interactive and engaging learning environments, supporting implementation of the Common Core State Standards with digital curriculum materials and assessment, and ensuring that all students have access to 21st century technology. This report is intended to provide formative feedback to inform district plans for re-envisioning ITI, based on the first two years of implementation.
