STaR Chart ppt Week 2 STaR Chart ppt Week 2 Presentation Transcript

  • STaR Chart
    Comal creating learners of the 21st century!
  • Agenda
    Available Technology on our campus
    Relation to current learners across the curriculums
    Progress of CMS in relation to the state
    Celebration of Current Use
  • 2006-2007
    *Note- Online Learning score is 1 during this time CMS had 1 PC Cart and wireless internet was not available!
  • 2007-2008
    *2 wireless COWs and wireless network problems continued to obstruct use.
  • 2008-2009
    *CMS purchased 2 iCOWs however the wireless network still inhibited flexibility
    Please view upcoming year’s data at Texas STaR Chart
  • Survey Results from 11/19/09
    Why does CMS score so low on the teaching and learning section of the STaR Chart?
    Equipment not available when needed.
    Don't know how to apply it to TEKS.
    Wireless is unpredictable.
    Devices do not work properly.
    Have to reserve too far in advance.
    Not enough equipment for an entire team.
    I have no complaint with technology.
  • NOW!
    CMS wants to change our state scores across the board.
    You gave us the reasons; we found the answers.
  • We Have it Let’s Use It!
    6 COWs with wireless internet
    31 iTouchs for ELL students
    6 USB Microscopes
    1 Video Conference Center
    5 eInstruction Wireless Chalkboards
    10 eInstruction Clicker Sets
    Each set has 30 clickers
    6 portable Smartboards
    All Math teachers have mounted Smartboards
  • As you can see….
    We have purchased a tremendous amount of equipment
    Last year CMS had…..
    3 COWs with wireless internet
    3 eInstruction Wireless Chalkboards
    5 eInstruction Clicker Sets
    Each set has 30 clickers
    3 portable Smartboards
  • Technology across the Curriculum
    All Math lessons are presented on Smartboards, notes are saved and are printed for students whose modifications require copies of teachers notes.
    7th grade ELA is teaching editing and revising strategies using the Smartboard which is advantageous to students through tactile activities.
    7th grade Science uses the USB microscopes to easily distinguish plant and animal cells.
    Social Studies uses interactive PowerPoint's to teach students to memorize the 100 TAKS facts
    Career Investigations is using the COWs to accomplish their individual career tests
  • This is only a start
    Video Conference- ELA talks to an author & Science talks to NASA
    Career Investigation students continue to update their accounts in high school and follow up with college applications
    Science opens visual windows through the creation of podcasts.
    ELL students reinforce core curriculum through individually created lessons on iTouch
  • Brainstorming
    Curriculum Teams have 3 minutes to create a list of technology incorporation goals for 2009-2010 school year
  • Share
    Teams share list of goals for each department
  • Looking forward to the STaR chart of 2009-2010!
    With all of CMS’s purchases and network improvement, our StaR chart is deemed for improvement!
    KEEP up the hard work Teachers! 
