Week 4 Assignment, Part 2: Professional Development Planning
According to our previous year’s STaR chart data, our area of weakness is in the area of
Educator Preparation and Development. For this reason, I designed this Action Plan in three
phases. Before we can change, we must first know our level of proficiency; therefore we start by
analyzing our data. This is followed by getting to know the resources that we have available for
use in our classrooms. This includes how they work and what we can do with them. The final
phase will be to have our teachers learn from each other. Teachers who are already integrating
technology in their classrooms with provide their colleagues with strategies and ideas for ways
to enhance their lessons through the use of technology.
