Action Plan Christina Cox

  1. 1. ORGANIZATION CHART JOB TITLE ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES Associate Prepares technology budget for the district and Superintendent of presents it to the school board. Ensures that the Technology and technology scope and sequence for the district is School Services aligned with the state objectives. Keeps district current on technological trends and advancements. Director of Responsible for making sure that the TEKS are Instructional included in the scope and sequence for the district. Technology Assesses the district’s needs in regards to technology and makes sure that improvements are made. Coordinator for Collaborates with principals, curriculum, staff, and Elementary teachers to integrate technology into the curriculum. Instructional Develops and implements Staff Development activities Technology for instructional users of technology. Elementary Diagnoses, computers, audiovisual, and other Technology equipment and makes required repairs. Installs and Assistance/ Repair replaces technology that is broken or outdated. Technology Helping Collaborates with and supports curriculum Teachers coordinators in integrating technology into their respective areas. Identify campus and individual training needs, and aid in staff development training. Assists elementary curriculum department in developing its web presence and online staff development offerings. Campus Principal Ensures that technology is being implemented in every classroom on campus and that district technology initiatives are being followed. Provides staff development on technology to support the campus improvement plan. Evaluate and assess the effectiveness of technology staff development through walk-throughs and formal observation. Campus Technology Serves as liaison between district and campus in Liaison regards to technology. Assists teachers with technology issues and needs, and provide staff development that increases the use of technology in the classroom. Classroom Teachers Engage students in curriculum with the use of technology. The teacher encourages and promotes the use of the Smartboard, laptops, and other technology equipment to promote higher order thinking skills.
  2. 2. 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 Cypress-Fairbanks ISD 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. Goals: • 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.
  3. 3. 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 skills. • 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 teachers. • 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 development workshops. 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.
  4. 4. 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- Throughs) • Campus Staff Development Evaluations
