TEAM TECHNOLOGY PLAN
The DuJardin Elementary School Library strives to support parents, teachers, and staff in
developing students who are skilled in technology and information literacy. We believe the
library is the information hub of the school community, and as such has a physical place and
space, with a knowledgeable librarian, as well as a web presence through the use of a user
friendly website, electronic resources, and web-based technologies. Ultimately, our vision is to
promote lifelong learning through inquiry and the use of technology to meet learning goals.
To support this vision we draw on these principles:
We will acquire and use technology to support the mission of the library, the school, and
We will work with teachers and staff to integrate technology into the curriculum whenever
possible, in order to teach students transferable rather than stand-alone technology skills.
We will provide training for staff on not only how to use the technology but how to integrate
it into the curriculum.
We will support the staff with their use of technology in the classroom and act as a
resource for both staff and students.
We will collaborate with the technology team to create a technology plan that will be
reviewed annually, in order to stay up to date with new technologies.
We will involve and educate parents in the community in order to become a technology

increase student achievement in reading and math for
all grade levels as measured by ITBS.
The students will be provided, taught to use, and utilize a
system where they can access files from home and school
with interactive resources, search engines, Web 2.0 tools,
databases, and online textbooks.
The students will be able to demonstrate proficiency in a
variety of Internet resources to conduct research.
The teachers will use district self-evaluation tools to
determine proficiency in technology skills and readiness for
using technology to enhance student achievement.
TECHNOLOGY ACTION PLAN CONTINUED
Goal #3: In accordance with Illinois mandate, integrate
components on internet safety and digital citizenship
into technology lessons using ISTE.NETS standards for
grades 3 and up.
The technology committee, along with the librarian, will create
lessons addressing digital citizenship & internet safety.
Teachers will receive training in digital citizenship and internet
safety, and will be provided with an introductory lesson to
teach at the start of the school year.
Students will receive an introductory lesson on digital
citizenship and internet safety at the start of the school year.
Teachers will continue to integrate the concepts into their
lessons throughout the school year.

In order to meet the objectives for goal #1 (Provide students with opportunities to apply technology
to organize and share their knowledge and ideas), the librarian will work alongside the
technology committee to create a list of Web 2.0 technology tools they would like students to be
able to use. The list will be broken down by grade level appropriateness. The librarian, along
with one other staff member, will spend time during the summer developing teacher resources
and training for the Web 2.0 tools on the list. The librarian will also work with the principal to
schedule staff development throughout the school year, front loaded into the first quarter so that
teachers have more time throughout the year to use what they have learned.
During the technology tools training sessions, which will take place both after school and during
Friday morning faculty meetings, teachers will have the opportunity to plan how these tools will
be used in their curriculum. They will be expected to create a lesson plan that incorporates a
Web 2.0 technology tool. One lesson will be taught to students by the end of second quarter,
and the other lesson will be taught by the end of the school year. Resources for these tools, as
well as how-to documents, will be uploaded onto the library webpage for teacher reference,
should they need it while they are teaching the tools to students. Teachers will be surveyed on
their professional development experiences, and also asked what other resources they might
need to meet their objective of using the technology tools with students.
By the end of the school year, students in each grade level K-5 will be able to use appropriately
two Web 2.0 technology tools. Teachers will share the completed Web 2.0 lessons, projects, or
assignments with the technology team. These lessons, along with feedback from the
classroom teachers, will be used to determine the success of this portion of the technology
EVALUATION GOALS CONTINUED
In order to meet the objectives for goal #2 (to use current technologies to increase student
achievement in reading and math for all grade levels as measured by ITBS), the librarian
will work alongside the technology committee to create to create lessons that will broken
down by grade level to teach students how to access and utilize My Big Campus at
school and from home. The lessons will focus on how to access files from the cloud, how
to use the interactive resources, search engines, Web 2.0 tools, databases, and online
textbooks available through My Big Campus. The lessons will be developed in the
summer of 2014 and taught throughout the school year. The technology committee,
librarian, classroom teachers, and administration can all look at the “Home Usage
Statistics” to evaluate the effectiveness of this initiative.
By the end of the school year, students in each grade level K-5 will be able to
demonstrate proficiency in a variety of Internet resources in order to conduct research.
Teachers will share the lessons, projects, assignments, and rubrics with the technology
team. These lessons, along with feedback from the classroom teachers, will be used to
determine the success of this portion of the technology plan.
In addition, teachers will also be asked to determine their own proficiency in technology
skills and readiness for using technology to enhance student achievement. This will begin
with a District Self-Evaluation prepared by the technology committee in the summer of
2014. Staff development recommendations and class offerings will be made throughout
the school year based on the results of these evaluations.
Finally, the ITBS scores in the spring of 2014 will be the final determination if this
objective has been met.
EVALUATION GOALS CONTINUED
In order to meet the objectives for goal #3 (In accordance with Illinois mandate, integrate
components on internet safety and digital citizenship into technology lessons using ISTE.NETS
standards for grades 3 and up), the librarian will work with the technology committee to develop
lessons on digital citizenship and internet safety for grades 3 and up. Before the start of the
2014 school year, all teachers will receive professional development training on digital
citizenship and internet safety. Teacher in grades 3, 4, and 5 will receive a lesson plan to teach
to their students during the first week of school. Teachers will be asked to provide feedback on
their professional development experience.
During the first week of school, students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will receive instruction on digital
citizenship and internet safety. Throughout the school year all teachers, including teachers in
grades K through 2, will integrate the concept of digital citizenship and internet safety into their
lessons anytime they use technology. Tips on integrating digital citizenship and internet safety
will be included in the how-to documents available on the library website. Teacher will monitor
their students’ online activity to ensure they are practicing digital citizenship and internet
safety, and will include digital citizenship in student evaluation rubrics whenever possible.
Throughout the school year students should strive to be good digital citizens and practice
internet safety anytime they use Web 2.0 tools. At the end of the school year, students will
complete a self evaluation on what they think it means to practice internet safety and be a good
digital citizen, and they will comment on if they feel they are doing these things. Teachers will be
asked to complete a self evaluation on the instruction of digital citizenship and internet
safety. These evaluations will be used to evaluate the success of this portion of the technology
plan and make any adjustments needed.
