Eera presentation

  1. 1. An Elementary School Technology Needs Assessment<br />Conducted by Shaun Kellogg & Kevin Oliver<br />
  2. 2. The Context<br />The Problem<br />The Purpose<br />Big Tech Investment<br />Measured Growth<br />What do we do next?<br />Bang for our Buck<br />Compare to Baseline<br />Recommend Action<br />
  3. 3. What environmental supports are needed to help staff effectively use technology?<br />What professional development offerings are needed to help staff use technology? <br />How do they feel about the quality of the current offerings?<br />To what extent are teachers and students already effectively using technology?<br />Is technology having the desired impact on instructions?<br />Research Questions<br />
  4. 4. The Logic of the Literature<br />Adapted from: Corn, J., (2008). Investigating the quality of the school technology needs assessment (STNA) 3.0: A validity and reliability study . (Unpublished dissertation, North Carolina State University, 2008). <br />
  5. 5. The Method<br />Step1: Quantitative Data<br />Step 2: Qualitative Data<br />STNA Survey Instrument<br />Developed by UNC-G and Tested for validity & reliability by Jeni Corn (NCSU) <br />Online (paper), 86 LikertItems<br /> Measures Four Constructs<br />Taken by Teachers, Teacher Assistants, and Admin: N = 70 <br />Response rate 71% (>80% ideal)<br />Absolute/Relative Frequency<br />Focus Group<br />Questions developed based on items with disagree/strongly disagree > 25%<br />School Improvement Team Members (N= 10)<br />Input from PLC and Personal Experiences<br />Confirm , Clarify, Elaborate<br />
  6. 6. Construct I: Environment Support<br />“(I need) computers younger than the students I’m teaching”<br />
  7. 7. Construct I: Environment Support<br />“I do a lot of technology things in my classroom, and there are some things that just won’t work on my computer”<br />
  8. 8. Construct I: Supportive Environment<br />“I (teach) reading all day and if I was going to do research, I would basically need a slot of each of my kids all day long. ”<br />
  9. 9. Construct II: Prof. Development(7 items)<br />“…a lot of people say they need it, but then they don’t sign up for it.”<br />
  10. 10. Construct III: Uses of Tech<br />“It’s not so much knowing what things they can use, it’s knowing how to implement it with only two computers in their classroom. ”<br />
  11. 11. Construct IV: Impact of Tech<br />“…is a poor county, and a lot of the kids themselves don’t have experience with those things, so you have to turn around and show some of them how to use the technologies, and a lot of the teachers say, well, I don’t want to waste that time, so I’ll think of another way to do it.”<br />
  12. 12. Conclusions<br />Needs<br />Recommendations<br />More flexible access to technology resources<br />Increased access to technical support<br />Sustainable funding <br />Timely and ongoing for Professional Development<br />More authentic and student-centered uses of Tech<br />Increase Communication<br />Leverage PLCs for support and just-in-time PD<br />Consider Policy Change for Lab Use<br />Continue Investigation<br />
