Transcript

  • 1. Leadership Principles in Technology Brian Mellott ITEC 545 27 August 2008
  • 2. Vision Why Incorporate Technology? <ul><li>The “big-picture” view that school units use to encourage stakeholders to buy into educational technology programs. </li></ul><ul><li>ex. Columbia County Schools, Lake City, FL—“The vision is that technology is not used for technology’s sake but that there is a purposeful and advantageous component.” </li></ul>
  • 3. Planning Implementing Our Vision <ul><li>A dynamic process for developing goals, roles, and the incorporation of technology into the educational community. </li></ul><ul><li>ex. “[A] successful plan serves as a model for future iterations that can incorporate new and emerging technologies and build upon a strong foundation.” </li></ul>
  • 4. Access Technology for All <ul><li>All stakeholders (even those with disabilities) should have convenient, reliable access to comparable technologies. </li></ul><ul><li>ex. Roanoke City Public Schools, Roanoke, VA—Computing Seniors/Computing Parents program offers technology courses to senior citizens and parents by utilizing otherwise vacant computer labs. Everyone benefits from increased access and support of local schools. </li></ul>
  • 5. Integration Into the Classroom <ul><li>Shifting pedagogies to incorporate new technologies as learning tools rather than simply supplanting the medium by which learning takes place. </li></ul><ul><li>ex. “[M]any teachers and administrators feel threatened because the change effort represents a journey into the unknown and [they] may not feel adequately prepared to face these challenges.” </li></ul>
  • 6. Assessment and Evaluation Is Our Plan Working? <ul><li>Determining the effectiveness of the technology plan on teaching methods and on student learning of content knowledge. </li></ul><ul><li>ex. “As schools become better versed in the capabilities and practices supported by educational technologies, the technologies themselves can support school leaders as they evaluate the impact of technology, make better-informed decisions, and communicate this impact to stakeholders.” </li></ul>
  • 7. Support A Little Help, Please <ul><li>Provide reliable equipment and a “safety net” to those who may be uncomfortable using technology for educational purposes. </li></ul><ul><li>ex. Deer Park Elementary School, Centreville, VA—Tech committee and tech resource teacher meet with grade level teams to set curricular goals and develop lesson plans that effectively integrate technology. </li></ul>
  • 8. Professional Development Teaching Teachers <ul><li>Periodic training designed to make teachers more comfortable with technology and to encourage them to use that technology in the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>ex. “Noting that teachers sometimes felt uncomfortable or intimidated demonstrating their emerging technology skills, one school dedicated a small room to continuous technology in-service.” </li></ul>
  • 9. Community Relationships Working For a Better Tomorrow <ul><li>Schools, community, and business are mutually dependent entities. Success can only be assured when they all work together. </li></ul><ul><li>ex. “A successful school system invigorates a community and a thriving community supports its schools.” </li></ul>
  • 10. Ethical and Legal Issues How can we use information? <ul><li>Encourage attitudes and knowledge that ensure the acceptable use of technologies and information in the educational community. </li></ul><ul><li>ex. “Educators and parents should help students develop responsible and appropriate Internet use habits.” </li></ul>
  • 11. Resources How to Learn More <ul><li>For more information on Technology Leadership Principles, check out this site . </li></ul>
