    • EDLD 5352 Instructional Leadership: The Technology LinkWeek 4 Assignment: Due at the end of Week 4.OverviewLast week, you engaged in an analysis and wrote a report describing the use of technology andinformation systems to enrich campus curriculum, enhance teaching and learning, and generallyintegrate technology into our campus improvement plans to effectively integrate technology andinstructional leadership. Your analysis and report should provide the necessary background forthe Week 4 major assignment – developing an action plan for gathering, analyzing, and usingdata from a variety of sources for informed campus decision making focusing on integratingtechnology, instructional leadership, professional development and organizational leadership.As a result of this week’s assignments, you will be able to: • Examine and assess procedures for gathering, analyzing, and using data from a variety of sources for informed decision making regarding the integration of technology, instructional and organizational leadership (SBEC Principal Competency 7 indicator); • Design and apply skills for monitoring and evaluating change and making needed adjustments to achieve the campus vision and goals, including the integration of technology as described above (SBEC Principal Competency 7 indicator).Both of these outcomes are elements of Domain II, Instructional Leadership.In writing your Week 4 action plan, use your interviews, your readings, including campus anddistrict improvement plans as well as any technology plans, and your Week 3 report to makesure the action plan: • Identifies data gathering sources; • Provides a description of an organizational chart describing decision making responsibilities regarding the integration of technology from central office personnel to campus leadership and staff; • Describes comprehensive professional development activities to achieve your action plan (this may utilize information from the previous three weeks of readings and activities); • Includes an evaluation plan to assess the progress and success of the action plan.Students will be asked to post their action plan on the Discussion Board and each student mustreview and comment on at least one other action plan focusing on organizational leadershipdesigned to maximize the use of technology in data gathering and decision making.Submit your assignment by 11:59 PM on the seventh day of Week 4.Page 1 – Revised October 2009
