technology equipment to promote higher order thinking
A principal’s primary responsibility is to make sure that are objectives and goals
are aligned with the Campus Improvement Plan, including technology objectives.
As the instructional leader, the principal can determine the level of technology
implementation through walk-throughs, formal PDAS evaluations, and lesson
plans. Currently, our district is implementing LOTI (levels of technology
implementation) in all content areas, with a specific focus on science. LOTI
levels promote higher order thinking skills, and the lesson plans should indicate
LOTI levels. The principal is also responsible for providing staff development
that is aligned with the Campus Improvement Plan. By planning with the District
Superintendent, Campus Helping Teachers, and Campus Liaisons, the principal
can determine what the needs are of the staff in regards to technology. After
staff development trainings, the principal is responsible for making sure that the
newly acquired technology is implemented in classroom instruction. This can be
assessed through observation and though evaluation of student performance on
district assessments and state-mandated assessments. A principal must also
model the appropriate use of technology on a daily basis.
Technology Action Plan for Lamkin Elementary
Vision: As an integral part of the learning process, instructional technology will
facilitate active learning in all students and prepare them to meet the challenges
of a digital world.
• Our campus will improve academic achievement by promoting higher
order thinking skills though technology implementation and active learning.
• Our campus will allow our technology liaisons the flexibility to provide
support to our teachers with technology implementation as needed.
• Our campus will provide staff development both on campus and online
that will allow teachers to acquire skills to implement technology in the
classroom, as outlined in the Campus Improvement Plan.
• Our campus staff will be able to effectively use the COGNOS system to
disaggregate data and individualize instruction.
• Our campus staff will become familiar with the STaR chart data and be
able to use the data to monitor our progress in implementing technology in
the 21st century.
Professional Development Design:
Our campus STaR chart analysis, our District and Campus Improvement Plans,
and the Texas Long Range Plan for Technology indicate the following
requirements for professional development:
1. LOTI level 2 and 3 Training
• Teachers will be refreshed on Bloom’s Taxonomy, and will be able
to design lesson plans that promote these higher order thinking
• Teachers will receive technology training and lesson samples for
LOTI lessons in the classroom.
• Professional Learning Communities will be designed to support
teachers as they design and implement LOTI lessons.
2. Additional Help for Teachers in implementing technology through
support from technology liaisons and technology helping teacher.
• Our on campus technology liaison position will increase from one
person to two persons to better reach the on-demand needs of our
• Our principal will schedule times for the Technology Helping
Teacher to visit with our teachers to provide training on distance
learning, online course support, and Smartboard software.
3. Analysis on Star Chart Campus Data
• Our technology liaisons will share our STaR Chart Campus Data
and what it means with our faculty, as well as the Texas Long
Range Plan for Technology.
• Teachers will complete the Technology Applications Inventory and
they will determine their own goals for technology implementation
in the classroom.
• Teachers will be provided opportunities to improve their technology
skills based on these weaknesses through a series of professional
4. COGNOS Training
• Our teachers will receive training on the COGNOS system, which
will help them disaggregate data based on ethnicity, gender,
passing TAKS rates, and specific demographics.
• Teachers will then use this data to individualize instruction for our
students, based on their current needs.
Technology Plan Evaluation
Our Campus Improvement Plan Committee and CPOC committee will evaluate
and many necessary updates to our Technology Action Plan annually.
Throughout the course of the year, our Technology Liaisons, Administration, and
SBDM will use the following assessments and methods to evaluate and
determine the effectiveness of our Professional Development Design:
• LOTI Level Indicators – Administrators and Teachers will document LOTI
level 2 or 3 lessons that are implemented in the classroom.
• STaR Chart Data
• Technology Application Survey and Teacher Technology Plan
• PDAS Goal Setting for Teachers – Technology must be included
• Technology Liaison and Helping Teacher Logs
• COGNOS Data Analysis– Individualized Instruction
• Professional Learning Communities – Technology Updates and Reports
• Online Learning usage for Staff Development
• Administrator Observations (PDAS, Technology Snapshots, and Walk-
• Campus Staff Development Evaluations
