Based upon the data gathered on the technology needs from week 3, an area ofprofessional devlopment needed on the campus is educator preparedness. Theprofessional development will reflect the Campus Improvement Plans for increasedstudent achievement as well. The first step of the plan will be an overall assessment ofcampus technology implementation in the classrooms. This will be determined throughteacher and student surveys as well as data form the librarian on computer lab usage. Thenext step will provide teachers with direct instruction and assistance in incorporatingtechnology into their classrooms. Teachers will be trained on using technology resourcesand be provided time and coaches to guide the process. Finally, the third portion willfocus on the continued improvement of technology at the campus and the aspects of theCampus Improvement Plan these factors are related to in the goals.In the first session teachers will be provided an overview on the campus STaR chart data.This will explain where the campus is rated in terms of technology and implementation.Many of the teachers are unaware of the technology TEKS and the applications of thesestandards in their curriculum. At this point in the professional development, teachers willbe asked for suggestions and evaluations of the campus needs in relation to the surveys,STaR chart data, and Campus Improvement Plan.In the second part of the plan, teachers will be provided specific training in small groupsessions to address individual needs for implementation. The sessions will pair teacherswith peers to guide them through the process and develop lessons collaboratively. Thecampus will also offer training on technology tools such as blogs, wikis, and dropboxesto use in the classroom. As teachers receive the training on the availalble web tools, theywill feel competant incorporating these into their lessons.In the final portion of the plan, teachers will be given to opportunity to provide feedbackon how the training has impacted their classrooms and what areas are still in need ofimprovement. Teachers will be asked to rate the needs of the campus and relate the needsto the CIP goals. Through the direct application of technology and campus goals futureprofessional development should continue to meet the needs of the students at ourcampus.
