mTechnology: A Teacher Tool for Growing a Community of Practice within an RtI Process
Affordance , first defined by James Gibson (1977) links the physical properties of an object to characteristics of a living breathing ‘animal’. More clearly understood is the language initiated by Kirscher (2002) which connects the educational experience (in this case, mTechnology) to the learner’s skills and aptitude for knowledge progression in real time.
RQ 1 How can the use of m-technology inform the development of a data-driven model for Sky View Elementary’s K-2 ?
RQ 2 How do kindergarten teachers progress in their adoption of an assessment technology to increase student early literacy development?
This study is designed to answer the following research questions:
This action plan will be implemented according to the following agenda and will include all kindergarten teachers at Sky View Elementary: Time Action Intervention Early September I Review Fall DIBELS Benchmark data. Schedule progress monitoring window. Mid-September II Discuss results from first progress monitoring window. Plan for small group intervention with at-risk profile data. Early September III Discuss results of small group intervention. Plan next progress monitoring period. Mid-October IV Review PM data implication form last progress monitoring period. Review effects of small group intervention. End of October V Discuss the results of small group intervention. Plan next progress monitoring (post study completion).
