Texas STaR Chart<br />School Technology and Readiness<br />
Understanding the Chart<br />Four Key Areas: Teaching and Learning, Educator Preparation and Development, Leadership, Administration and Instructional Support, and Infrastructure for Technology.<br />Assessed on four levels: 1= Early Tech, 2 = Developing Tech, 3=Advanced Tech, 4=Target Tech.<br />Assessed both at campus level and statewide<br />
Key Area I: Teaching and Learning<br />Six areas of assessment<br />Patterns of Classroom Use, Frequency/Design of Instructional Setting, Content Area Connections, Technology Applications (TA) TEKS implementation, Student Mastery of Technology Applications, Online Learning<br />Basically what is used in the classroom, is it used daily, and do the students know how to use it.<br />
Key Area II: Educator Preparation and Development<br />Six areas of assessment.<br />Professional Development Experiences, Models of Professional Development, Capabilities of Educators, Access to Professional Development, Levels of Understanding and Patterns of Use, Professional Development for Online Learning.<br />Basically, what do the teachers know, do they know how to utilize the equipment, are they attending staff developments. <br />
Key Area III: Leadership, Administration, & Instructional Support<br />Six areas of assessment<br />Leadership and Vision, Planning, Instructional Support, Communication and Collaboration, Budget, Leadership and Support for Online Learning.<br />Basically, what is our campus goal for technology use, do we have money for the technology, and is leadership giving staff support.<br />
Key Area IV: Infrastructure for Technology<br />Six areas of assessment.<br />Students per Computers, Internet Access Connectivity Speed, Other Classroom Technology, Technical Support, Local Area Network Wide Area Network, Distance Learning Capacity.<br />Basically, what do we have and what do we need<br />
A Look at State Data<br />Teaching and Learning: Early Tech = 3.9%, Developing Tech = 69.7%, Advanced Tech = 25.5%, and Target Tech = 0.9%.<br />Educator Preparation: Early Tech = 5.4 %, Developing Tech = 74.2%, Advanced Tech = 19.9%, and Target Tech = 0.6%<br />Administration & Support: Early Tech = 2.0%, Developing Tech = 49.0%, Advanced Tech = 45.5%, and Target Tech = 3.6%.<br />Infrastructure: Early Tech = 1.2%, Developing Tech = 34.9%, Advanced Tech= 57.2%, and Target Tech = 6.7%.<br />
A Look at Our Campus<br />Teaching and Learning = Developing Tech<br />Educator Preparation = Developing Tech<br />Administration & Support = Advanced Tech<br />Infrastructure for Technology = Developing Tech<br />
What Does All This Mean?<br />Campus level we have great support and budgeting for new and current technology<br />In comparison with the state, we are at the same level as the majority of other campuses in the state of Texas.<br />Needs: implementation within the classroom, more staff development, and another look at our infrastructure.<br />
