  • Welcome everyone, thank your for taking your time to be here and participate! You are the committee that will make this a success, I’m here to provide support and facilitate the first meeting with an outline for you to fill in and make this a reality that will work for all of you.
  • I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done.There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.
  • Technology today is fast paced and changing rapidly. Employers will demand more of the future generation and they want more from us adults already!
  • The top ten steps to plan a tech use plan. Yes, you heard right! To plan a plan. As this is your document, feel free to add steps as needed as we proceed down this river journey together.
  • It is important as step #9 and 10 to keep an on-going evaluation, reflection and change period in each cycle so as to always be aware of the implementation and needs of the learners, teachers and other stakeholders in this group that we represent.
  • Some food for thought as we journey together: this study shows 15yrs olds in the US scored below 16 other countries in science literacy in 2006. How do you think this will affect our children’s ability to compete for jobs in a global economy?
  • Those who graduate from high school earn more than those who do not and those with college degrees even more.
  • Here is a draft to get you started as a committee on one of the most important aspects of today.To develop Simon Hill’s Vision Statement. I’ve put together some ideas for you to think about and we can discuss them more after the rest of the slides. I’ll turn the meeting over to Principal Miss Moffett for conducting the Vision statement planning at that time.
  • Capacity to use tech score a failing grade and the next slide shows why
  • Capacity to Use –no teacher standards, admin stds, license req, re-cert requirements:
  • Directions for planning efforts
  • Objectives for planning
  • Relationship of the goals to the visionRealistic strategies to improve student learningDescribe how the goals meet the school’s overall plan or strategyConcrete or measurable goals aligned w/national or state standardsStrategies describe how goals will enhance student learningDescribe how the school will identify and promote the use of the training into the curricula
  • What needs should be addressed in the assessment instrument? Provide a list of the general areas to be assessed. Link to your online survey.
  • Provide some suggestions for staff development as this will be such a crucial element in the plan - and one that you, as the educational technologist will spearhead.
  • Suggest how you would evaluate the plan - how will that be structured? Who? How will unmet goals be addressed? Will there be a research component? What measure will be used to determine success?
  • Celebrate success
  • When the river boat lands and the party is over, everyone is free to go ashore!

      One might question -
      Why develop a technology use plan?
      To have a navigation map on the waterways to guide our collective vision to meet our goals in an effective and efficient manner with the best results possible for ongoing success.
      Preparing the learners for tomorrow is critical to achieving the standards set forth nationally, statewide and by our communities.

    • 14. Plan Goals/Objectives
      The progress of any change effort is ultimately dependent on not only the eager and willing teachers and staff but also those who are not so eager.
      The two groups must work together to transform anxiety to proficiency and proficiency to mastery.
      The problem is exacerbated when “teachers who are lacking skills are afraid to ask for help,” observed one participant.
    • 15. Plan Goals/Objectives cont.
      Instead of thinking in the short term, both administrators and teachers must look at the bigger picture.
      Although this at first seems difficult, creating a clear vision for learning and setting measurable educational goals is one of the keys to success.
      Professional development tends to have a stronger impact when we frame it like this: “Let’s look at what students are learning this year and then see how technology can make it more effective.”
