  • 1. The Texas STaR Chart is a self-assessment and planning tool for Texas teachers.
    The STaR Chart is aligned with the Long-Range Plan for Technology, 2006-2020.
    It assists all Texas teachers in self-assessment to effectively integrate technology across the curriculum.
    The chart focuses on the four areas of the new long range plan: Teaching and Learning; Educator Preparation and Development; Leadership, Administration and Instructional Support; and Infrastructure for Technology.
    The levels of progress range from Early Tech to Target Tech.

  • 4. The EP data reveals that our high school is seriously lacking in Technology professional development.
    Teachers rated professional development, educator capabilities, access to professional development and online learning the lowest.
    This is a disturbing trend that I attribute to the push for more and more TAKS professional development.
    AEIS and AYP have gained ground over Technology in the last few years due to the addition of Special Education students’ scores being included in the calculations.
    It has become more difficult to be “Recognized” and “Exemplary” with these scores included.
    What Trends are Identified?
  • 5. Classroom visits to assess what technology is available to teachers
    Weekly emails to the district with tips on using technology
    An open-door policy to make teachers feel welcome to ask for ideas
    Group meetings periodically to share ideas and technology lesson plans
    Sharing useful websites with teachers
    What Can be Done?
  • 6. …because what good is Technology if no one knows what to do with it…
