  1. 1. Trinity ISD Technology PLan<br />By Ronnie Babcock <br />For<br />EDLD 5306<br />
  2. 2. Slide Show Agenda<br />The Schools and Libraries Program reimburses telecommunications, Internet access, and internal connections providers for discounts on eligible services provided to schools and libraries.<br />The following presentation is an overview of the plan required for all districts to complete in order to qualify for the “E-Rate” Plan. In particular Trinity ISD<br />Information concerning the E-Rate plan can be<br /> found at:<br /><br />
  3. 3. Trinity ISD Technology Goals <br />To insure that every Trinity student graduates from our district with the tools and abilities needed to succeed in a technological world. <br />The IT platform at Trinity will include Macbooks for every middle and high school student.<br />Technology will be promoted through on line homework submission and assessments.<br />Faculty Will be given ongoing support and training to insure the ability to lead our students through technology modeling<br />
  4. 4. Trinity ISD Technology Strategies:<br />Student technological knowledge will enhanced through the use of on line assessment and homework submission.<br />All faculty will maintain a webpage linked to the TISD website. <br />All faculty will maintain grade books, attendance, and lesson plans through Google Docs.<br />All faculty will attend technology development every Wednesday.<br />A student technology committee will study and make technology recommendations to the administration and faculty at the technology staff development.<br />
  5. 5. Trinity ISD Technology Talking<br />Points: <br />How will teacher involvement and buy in be maintained?<br />How will student involvement and buy in be achieved and maintained?<br />Is the budget available?<br />Does the new technology actually hurt our star category scores in other critical STaR categories?<br />Can our existing internet pipeline and ISP provide the bandwidth we will need<br />Student committee recommendations, will they be taken seriously?<br />How will the new technology policies effect the STAR test in two years?<br />
  6. 6. Star Data, What it Shows<br />It becomes evident when studying the data presented in the chart above, that while Technology infrastructure (IN. TECH) increases, the remaining categories suffer. This may be a side effect of growing the tech faster than the training of the people utilizing the tech.<br />
  7. 7. Our School<br />
  8. 8. Conclusion:<br />In the final observation one must conclude that the technological <br />environment we find ourselves in today must be considered in <br />Education. Our students will be competing in a world economy for<br />Jobs that have yet to be created or invented. We can little imagine the <br />world that they will live in and the challenges that they will face. With <br />That being the case it is our duty as educators to prepare our students <br />For situations that we cannot imagine. We do this through a proactive<br />Use of technology in the classroom. <br />
