    • Long Range Plan FOR TECHNOLOGY TEXAS Brian Eaves – EDLD 5306 – Week 2 Lesson – Part 3 – November 29, 2009
    • The Texas Long Range Plan for Technology 2006-2020
      • The new Long-Range Plan for Technology, 2006-2020 charts the course for educational technology in Texas and provides recommendations to various stakeholders in the areas of…

    • Why Integrate Technology?
      • To improve productivity and practice. Measures need to be available to assess effectiveness, and yet some of the most significant effects can be difficult to measure. For administrative tasks,
      • Technology can improve worker productivity by removing repetitive aspects of complex tasks or improving system communication.
      • The potential to support important educational goals. Technology, it has been argued, helps change teacher-student relationships, encourages project-based learning styles, and supports the acquisition of skills such as "higher order thinking," analysis, and problem solving.
      • The most important reason for measuring, though, is the understanding that the impact of technology on schools is dependent upon how successfully technology is integrated.
      There are a number of reasons to track the effectiveness of technology integration. The integration of technology into a school is in many ways like its integration into any business setting… technology is a tool.
    • How Does Texas Measure Technology In Schools?
      • The Texas Education Agency Educational Technology Advisory Committee (ETAC) developed the Texas School Technology and Readiness (STaR) Chart , an online resource tool for self-assessment of your campus’ and district’s efforts to effectively integrate technology across the curriculum. This rubric serves as the standard for assessing technology preparedness in Texas K-12 schools. This chart has been updated to align with the new Long-Range Plan for Technology , 2006-2020 . .
      The STaR Chart http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/technology/lrpt/lrpt_lrpt.html
    • Areas Addressed In The STaR Chart

    • EDUCATOR PREPARATION & DEVELOPMENT
    • Educator Preparation and Development
      • All educators will graduate from an educator preparation program that models current technology in instructional and administrative practices.
      • All educators will exit preparation programs knowing how to use technology effectively in the teaching and learning process.
      • All educators will develop new learning environments that utilize technology as a flexible tool where learning is collaborative, interactive and customized.
      • All educators will ensure integration of appropriate technology throughout all of curriculum and instruction.

    • Technology Goals In Texas Schools? “ Texas faces growing challenges in meeting the needs of an increasingly diverse student population. A “one size fits all” approach to teaching and learning does not meet the educational needs and goals for all students.” So what will it take to reach the target tech level by 2020? How Will We Reach Our … and much more. It can be done. standards resources infrastructure leadership teamwork creativity integration curriculum assessment strategies interest opportunities quality access collaboration
