  • In this presentation I plan to show how the investments in current and future information and communication technologies (ICT) not only benefit schools, but also the communities that support them. I will focus on four major talking points. These include: a brief description of instructional technologies, developing ICT with community and parent support (communication as a bridge to understanding instructional technologies), technology and student success, and the road to sharing technology resources between schools and communities. Focus on: Information and communication technology investments a. The role of schools and communities b. Investment and benefits
  • After the brief introduction I will explain the topics for discussion, which will be supported on the following pages. Describe each point in general and more in-depth as we move along in our discussion Focus on: Discussion Points a. Relationship between schools and community b. Investments effect more than just the schools
  • This is a formal definition, I would break this down and explain it a bit further, with the primary emphasis being on learning. Learning, which takes place not only in the K12 environment, but also in community education, our library, and senior centers. I would then tie this the next slide that talks about community and parental support. Focus on: Instructional technologies a. Formal definition b. Informal definition: computer centered technology
  • Many of the attendees will be familiar with the saying “It takes a village to raise a child”. I’ll use this as the context for supporting technology in the school in addition to the following points: Information and communication technologies surround us (e.g. television, home computers, access to the Internet, smart phones, even our cars) Positive student outcomes involves more than teachers teaching Families, the school, and the community make up the complete support structure for the inclusion of technology in the schools and beyond Focus on: Spheres of influence a. Student outcomes b. Parenting and community as support mechanisms
  • Here I use Wordle to express the full complement of who is involved in the supporting schools and technology on both the state and local levels Focus on: Spheres of influences a. Expanding the role of community (support) b. Stakeholders: now and in the future – students as leaders – future community members
  • Explain how technology supports schools and the community. Technology and access to technology as an educational benefit to all Focus on: Stakeholder a. How the investment in technologies goes further then the schools b. Building and sustaining relationships
  • Describe captivating students with technology as opposed to traditional activities. Focus on: Educational technology a. Stimulating learning with technology b. Creating life long learners
  • Share a Minnesota report card concerning “our” use of technology. Use the comparison of the top state. Focus on: Need for improvement…how does our community compare? a. Discuss 2009 comparison to Wisconsin b. Investment for improvement – positives/negatives
  • Computers in library media center – differences in access Focus on: Educational technology in classrooms and libraries a. Access for students and community use b. How does our investment compare to other districts
  • Possible technology interaction between schools, parents, and the community Focus on: Communication and support between multiple stakeholders (reference Slide 5 – link through table) a. Open communication on many levels and concerning a wide variety of topics b. Examples of community use of technology (access and training)
  • Share example of Florida usage trends: families and community Focus on: Increased communication a. School and families b. Community – Example: events, financials, levies, etc…
  • Conclusion – my quote above and a return to the discussion points Focus on: Recap of discussion points a. Investment by community b. Community as investment

  • Cindy Gruwell - ED 633 Summer 2011
    • Understanding instructional technologies
    • Spheres of influence
    • Developing information and communication technology (ICT) with community and parent support
    • Technology and student success
    • The road to shared technologies
  • Instructional technologies are “… often defined either in terms of media and other technology used (e.g. audiovisual media and equipment and computers), or in terms of a systematic process which encompasses instructional design, development, delivery and evaluation.” Seels, Barbara, and Rita Richey.  Instructional Technology: The Definition and Domains of the Field . Washington, D.C: Association for Educational Communications and Technology, 1994. Print.

  • Technology Interactions
    • Technology in the schools means:
    • Students develop skills for life long learning
    • Improved communication between schools & parents/community
    • Community use of instructional technology
    • Technology educational (TE) studies indicate:
      • “ TE activities appear to reach a wider range of children, perhaps
      • as many as 75 to 80%, while many of the regular classroom
      • lessons and activities appeared to captivate only about 20 to 25%
      • of the children. “
