    • EDLD 5352 Instructional Leadership: The Technology LinkWeek 4 Assignment: Due at the end of Week 4.OverviewLast week, you engaged in an analysis and wrote a report describing the use of technology andinformation systems to enrich campus curriculum, enhance teaching and learning, and generallyintegrate technology into our campus improvement plans to effectively integrate technology andinstructional leadership. Your analysis and report should provide the necessary background forthe Week 4 major assignment – developing an action plan for gathering, analyzing, and usingdata from a variety of sources for informed campus decision making focusing on integratingtechnology, instructional leadership, professional development and organizational leadership.As a result of this week’s assignments, you will be able to: • Examine and assess procedures for gathering, analyzing, and using data from a variety of sources for informed decision making regarding the integration of technology, instructional and organizational leadership (SBEC Principal Competency 7 indicator); • Design and apply skills for monitoring and evaluating change and making needed adjustments to achieve the campus vision and goals, including the integration of technology as described above (SBEC Principal Competency 7 indicator).Both of these outcomes are elements of Domain II, Instructional Leadership.In writing your Week 4 action plan, use your interviews, your readings, including campus anddistrict improvement plans as well as any technology plans, and your Week 3 report to makesure the action plan: • Identifies data gathering sources; • Provides a description of an organizational chart describing decision making responsibilities regarding the integration of technology from central office personnel to campus leadership and staff; • Describes comprehensive professional development activities to achieve your action plan (this may utilize information from the previous three weeks of readings and activities); • Includes an evaluation plan to assess the progress and success of the action plan.Students will be asked to post their action plan on the Discussion Board and each student mustreview and comment on at least one other action plan focusing on organizational leadershipdesigned to maximize the use of technology in data gathering and decision making.Submit your assignment by 11:59 PM on the seventh day of Week 4.Page 1 – Revised October 2009

    • EDLD 5352 Instructional Leadership: The Technology LinkWeek 4 Assignment, Part 1: Development of an organization chart integratingtechnologyUsing the campus and district improvement plans, and any suggested technologyimprovements, develop an organization chart that includes the following: • Identify by title or job description all personnel/stakeholders responsible for integrating technology and instructional and organization leadership from the district office to the campus and classroom; • Provide a brief description of the role and responsibilities of all identified personnel in your organizational chart; • Discuss the role of the principal in making sure the organizational chart is implemented and monitored.The principals responsibility is to make sure that technology is being integrated andimplemented in all aspects of curriculum and instruction. The principal must be in constantcontact/communication with all stakeholders, above and below on the flow chart, to ensurethat the state, district, and campus plans for technology are being met. The principals alsomust support and encourage technology in the school and classroom. Principals also need tosupport and allocate funds for on-going professional development in the area of technology.Principals must also be the model for using technology as a tool for communication, datacollection, identifying data trends, and student success if they want it to be used in theclassrooms of their school.Page 6 – Revised October 2009

    • EDLD 5352 Instructional Leadership: The Technology LinkWeek 4 Assignment, Part 2: Professional Development PlanningUsing the campus and district improvement plans, and any suggested technologyimprovements, develop professional development activities that include the following:• Reference analysis and lessons learned about the technology needs from the Week 3 report;• Addresses professional development designed to improve the gathering, analysis and use of data from a variety of sources;• Includes professional development to improve decision making in the integration of technology with instructional and organizational leadership.The planning/brainstorming of a technology needs professional development while referring toweek 3’s work, the campus improvement plan, the district improvement plan, and the STaRChart will be a fairly easy and effective task. There are areas of technology in use or availablewithin the district and at my campus that are loaded with information and useful tools. Theissue is that there is little knowledge on how to effectively use or navigate these tools. I hopethe following staff development plan, along with others (on-going), will shed some light onthese tools so out teachers will use and implement them in their classrooms effectively andwith success. Professional Development Goals and Objective:District goal for technology: CISD will provide technology infrastructure, tools, and solutions tomeet the administrative requirements of the district and to maximize learning for all students.District goal for communication: CISD will promote and enhance two-way communicationamong our staff and our community to maximize the success of all students.Campus goal for technology: To ensure that all students and staff utilize technology as a toolfor learning. Knox Junior High will utilize technology to maximize learning for all students and toenhance the educational practices of teachers.Campus goal for communication: Knox Junior High will promote and enhance two-waycommunication among our staff and our community to maximize the success of all students.Objective of the professional development: To ensure knowledge, use, and implementation ofavailable classroom technology through effective communication and subject relevantmodeling.Page 8 – Revised October 2009

This will also include theprocedures and practices for keeping the lines of communication clear with all stakeholders outside ofschool walls.Educational Technology Integration and Implementation Principles:This session will aid helping teachers to become comfortable in planning and designing instructionalactivities that implement technology in order to support student learning and to aid all staff in theschool to support and advocate for the use of technology in the classroom.Eduphoria’s effective navigation and use:This session will help teacher become more familiar with the inner-working of eduphoria. There is a lotof information and clicking that has to be done to properly and efeectively navigate this site and tounlock it’s potential. This training will help teachers to accomplish this so that they can use thereseources found in this software program. This will also give teachers a chance to let the technologyspecialssts know what it is they think could be fixed or “made better” in the program to make it more“user-friendly”.Blogs/Wikis/Web 2.0 Tools:This session will show and model to teacher the effectiveness of use in the classroom that these toolsoffer. Actual classroom examples of implementation and success will be used to model the use of thesetechnologies. *There will also be a focus in the importance of the STaR chart data that is completed by teachers on ayearly basis. It will be made known that this infomatiin is very valuabe as a summative evaluation for all things technology related for our campus. So there will be time spent explaining the results of these scores and their meanings. This will be built into the introduction via PowerPoint.*Page 12 – Revised October 2009
