  • 3. Technology Use 3 IntroductionEducation in America is changing rapidly when it comes to technology, more and more we are seeingteachers and students use technology to educate and learn. Teachers are using the computer to adjusttheir curriculum and using computer programs to educate students. Some school districts are alreadyusing 100% of their curriculum online and most have distributed iPads to all their students with allmaterials needed in it.The purpose of this report was to see how many teachers in the High School Equivalency Program (HEP)school are using technology in their classrooms, if they have the necessary infrastructure and to see ifthey have viable instructional strategies. It is important to adapt to changes, the HEP program is facing aNational change in the official GED examinations. The GED testing Services will be implementing a newerversion of the test where everything will be taken online, meaning no more paper exams. Most of ourstudents have very limited computer skills and will be getting timed on the official exams making itdifficult due to the lack of computer skills in typing and know how to get around on it.The HEP program will conduct a survey to all HEP programs and analyze if the programs are prepared tohelp students pass the new version of the GED exams that require students to take the test 100% online.Are the HEP instructor and students technologically ready for the future changes that are being broughtby the GED Testing Services?
  • 4. 4Technology Use Data collectionUse of TechnologyTechnology is being used by teachers but not to a great extent considering that there school districtsalready using 100% of their curriculum on the computer. In analyzing the data provided by the HEPprograms, about 55% of the teachers are using technology but only about 20% are using it to incorporatecurriculum assignments. For the most part software is not being updated and teachers are not using thecurrent software at great numbers.Students are still being limited when it comes to having access to technology, most technology is stilllocated in the computer lab (63.5% are in the lab) and for the most part students need to be supervised.The survey also showed that most teachers using technology for grading and not for instructionalpurposes, the survey showed that 51.8% use technology for grading others for lesson preparation. Only20.7% of the teachers are using technology and incorporating the curriculum online, which is very lowpercentage in today’s computer savvy students.InfrastructureFor the most part the surveys outcomes for computer training and participation in new technology waslow, over 64% of teacher did not participate as full voting members on technological committees andover 41% had not gotten no updated training in the past 6 months. One thing that the schools are doingis having a staff that can assist the students and teachers with technology, 64% of teachers respondedthat they have computer technicians. For the most part technology is funded through the generaloperating budget, while 43% said that it is funded through its own specific recurring annual budget asign that it’s moving in the right direction. For the most part schools do not have a technological plan,about 73% of the teachers surveyed said that there was no solid plan in place. On a positive note thesurvey did reflect that 95% of the computers have internet access and 86% have printing access.
  • 5. Technology Use 5Instructional StrategiesThe survey has pointed out a big problem when it comes to addressing students’ technologycompetencies, the survey has reflected that about 75% of teacher reported that there was no scope orsequence available. The results show that close to 40% of the teachers do not incorporate learningobjectives with technology base resources, and those who do have a difficult time identifying the criteriafor successful student learning. About 25% of the teachers report having trouble getting access to thecomputer lab another 18% reported that technology must be transported to the classroom and thetechnology coordinator had to be present while using the technology. For those students that did haveaccess to the technology resources they reported that the resources where applicable to what was beingcovered in class but that was only about 45% of the students.Below is table 1.1how many teachers actually implement technology in their curriculumand table 1.2shows data of how many teachers are using technology. The study reveals that more and more teachersare using technology but the data also indicated that there is not enough staff development in are teachers expected to incorporate lesson plans with specific learner objectives related to technology? 50 40 teachers 30 20 10 0 Computer lesson plans are some lessons Detailed lesson instruction is not used plans plans are used not basd on lesson plans categoriesincorporating the curriculum into technology. Table 1.1
  • 6. 6Technology Use are the computers used by teachers or is the coumputer teacher the only one who dispenses technology instruction? 70 60 50 Teachers 40 30 20 10 0 Computer teachers few teachers use it few teachers use it routinely used by only regulary routinely teachers Categories Table 1.2 SummaryTechnology is so ever changing and it is doing so at a fast pace that if we as a society don’t adapttechnology into our educational system we are going to be getting more behind when it comes topreparing students. Teachers are using technology but not in great numbers and for those who are usingtechnology are not incorporating it into the class curriculum. Most teachers are using it for basic dataentry and not for educating students through online educational programs or curriculums. Teachers havevery low participation when it comes to technology and trainings. Schools need to start embarrassingtechnology and start incorporating technological plans in their schools that would be easy to follow andupdate.Overall in the survey did show signs of improvement, it’s just taking its course at its own pace. Overallteachers are interested in technology and getting trained and updated software. With time our teachersand students are going to have technology in their classrooms for all to use. Right now we just need toget their by providing the right trainings for teachers and students.
  • 7. Technology Use 7ConclusionTeachers and students for the most part have not caught up to the changes that technology has broughtto education. Some schools are ready but are a small percentage of them and are excelling due to thetechnology being implemented into the curriculum. One way that I can see technology increasing inschools is by putting more funding in training and updating technology on a regular basis. Teachers needto learn how to implement their curriculum into technology and know how to use it. It seems thatschools have the technology in place it’s just the lack of not connecting technology and education, oncethis is figured out.
