The 4 Wheels of success Educational Achievement in students Implementation of Technology in Classrooms Staff Development Funding Educational Technology The Big Move:
Maximizing Test Scores No Child Left Behind State AYP SAT/ACT Student Achievement
8 year research has shown that a Computer Supported Intentional Learning Environment(CSILE) maximizes student thinking, reading, understanding and test scores. Student Achievement
The circle of educational technology Staff Development Educational Technology Implementation Positive Individual Moral and Excitement to Learn Positive School Climate and Atmosphere Student Achievement RESTART!!! Staff Development
Commitment to Investment Implementing proper technology into labs and classrooms Continued staff development Stay “On The Move” Remain up to date on newer technology Students lose interest unless there’s new implementation Support additional teacher development aside from the required Funding Educational Technology
The rush into investing in education technology is that we no longer want to be a spectator for our students. We want to be a model for other school to follow.
