  • 1. EDLD 5352 Instructional Leadership: The Technology Link Week 4 Assignment: Due at the end of Week 4. Overview Last week, you engaged in an analysis and wrote a report describing the use of technology and information systems to enrich campus curriculum, enhance teaching and learning, and generally integrate technology into our campus improvement plans to effectively integrate technology and instructional leadership. Your analysis and report should provide the necessary background for the Week 4 major assignment – developing an action plan for gathering, analyzing, and using data from a variety of sources for informed campus decision making focusing on integrating technology, 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 and district improvement plans as well as any technology plans, and your Week 3 report to make sure 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 must review and comment on at least one other action plan focusing on organizational leadership designed 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

  • 9. EDLD 5352 Instructional Leadership: The Technology Link Week 4 Assignment, Part 3: Evaluation Planning for Action Plan The technology action plan integrating instructional an organizational leadership must include evaluation components that provide measurable outcomes designed to address the following: • Uses data and other analysis from the Week 3 report, including using the campus and district improvement plans, and local or state technology plans; • Provides assessments and/or monitoring reports measuring professional development designed to use technology to improve the gathering, analysis and use of data from a variety of sources; • Provides assessments and/or monitoring evaluating professional development to improve decision making in the integration of technology with instructional and organizational leadership. By using the data gathered during week 3 from my campus and district improvement plans I realized that we need an action plan that focuses specifically on technology and its implementation. Mr. Rolando Perez (assistant principal) said “We must have a leader that is involved in the latest technology innovations and who is ready to bring these back to school and implement them”. “It is necessary that our teachers help us learn from technology instead of restricting the use of it in school”. (Student #1) My action plan will focus on the enhancement of student learning and to prepare students to be technology ready for today, tomorrow, and the future. This will be accomplished by exposing our staff, teachers and students to all the latest technology, providing the professional developments necessary to train our teachers and ongoing assistance to ensure that this technology is implemented in the classroom. Mrs. Adams will be in charge of having a line of mentors and mentees for the implementation of technology in student projects and other activities. The principal will design a set of questions that will be given to the staff at the beginning, the middle, and the end of the year along with the STaR Chart to assess the use of technology in the campus, and the professional developments, and this way target the areas of need immediately. Mr. Perez will also evaluate teachers in the use of technology using PDAS. A computer based survey will be given to the students to analyze how they feel towards technology in the classroom and in school. The principal will also be in charge of working with the personnel from the district office to ensure that the campus has enough hardware, and assistance from the technology coordinator.
