CURRICULUM DRIVEN TECHNOLOGY GOALS CRITERIA Item 3 / Curriculum Driven Technology Goals Weed Union Elementary School District subscribes to the following guidelines in establishing all goals, objectives, and benchmarks identified throught this technology plan. Curriculum California Adopted Content Standards Instruction California Standards for the Teaching Profession Student Technology Skills and Benchmarks District Technology Benchmarks based on examples from CTAP (See Appendix B) Teacher Technology Skills and Benchmarks Basic Technology Standards for Teacher (CTAP 100) (See Appendix A) The outcomes suggested here are designed to provide Weed Elementary with a variety of technology-based resources and establish direction for their use through integration in teaching and learning. These technology resources will improve the delivery of instruction and provide opportunities for students to create multi-media learning products. The District’s “Equitable Access” Policy regarding technology Technology Access for Special Needs Students Weed Union Elementary School District computer resources are available and accessible to all students regardless of learning style, grade level, special needs, or physical limitations. The district will address special technological needs as they arise. All buildings and facilities meet ADA requirements. Weed Union Elementary School District is committed to equitable access to all technology for all students. The actions that underpin this commitment are defined in such legislation as The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, a federal law passed in 1975 and re-authorized in 1990, which mandates that all children receive a free, appropriate public education regardless of the level or severity of their disability. It provides funds to assist states in the education of students with disabilities and requires that states make sure that these students receive an individualized education program based on their unique needs in the least restrictive environment possible. P. L. 94-142 also provides guidelines for determining what related services are necessary and outlines a “due process” procedure to make sure these needs are adequately met. In order to address the needs of these identified students; SELPA will evaluate and suggest software and hardware to help meet each child’s unique needs.

  39. 39. SECTION 3i and 3 j. Needs Assessment: Weed Union Elementary School District conducts a yearly needs assessment in order to help focus better on school-wide curriculum issues and link goals with scienitific data. Once completed this assessment tool helps examine the curriculum goals and objectives in order to identify instructional opportunities to infuse technology into the teaching and learning process. The assessment is divided into open ended questions as well as a series of yes/no questions regarding what is used in the instructional classroom and what is not. This assessment is also used to focus the direction of our staff development projects. (See Appendix F for the entire Needs Assessment tool) From the outcome of our needs assessment the planning committee has set goals for students at Weed Elementary School. Curriculum Integration Benchmarks The planning committee established two sources to assist instructors with integration issues. First there is a grade level guide (See Appendix B) covering all of the applications. Additionally, the following benchmarks have been established for teachers to use to guide them in their curricular development. Teachers at the K-1 level begin with at least one project a year aligned to the California State Standards, using the various applications. This objective then moves to two per year for years two and three; and three projects for years four and five. Teachers in grade 2-4 will be responsible for one application driven project the first year, two the second and third years, three the fourth year and five for the last year of the plan. Grade 5-6 begin with two projects in year one, three for year two.Years three and four have four projects and year five has five projects. At the upper end of the spectrum, 7th and 8th graders begin with two projects the first year, three for year two, four for year three, and five for the last two years of the plan.

  40. 40. Project length varies from project to project. Some may be as short as one period in one day while more complex projects may take up to several months. Teachers must consider project length in order to meet the minimum number of projects required. It is possible that one project can integrate both general applications as well as be Internet-based. It can be assumed that projects integrating multiple technologies and multiple resources will require more time to complete. All Teaching With Technology (TWT) teachers already have started the implemention.
