    • Professional Development Plan Since there is currently no vision statement for technology in either the District or Campus plan (Committee, 2009) we must develop New Braunfels Middle School our own vision of where we want to go. . We are back at the beginning of our& 3 Action Plan Parts 2 journey started 10 years ago. I believe that we cannot begin our journey without a vision on where we are Using Technology to enhance learning an Te going. If we do not have a clear vision of where we are going we may end up somewhere totally different. Eric Jones tells us We need to teaching in ourquestions such as, “What do we want our classrooms to look and ask ourselves classrooms like with this technology? Or What do we want our teachers and students to accomplish with this technology? How will we get there?” (Jones, 2007) When we are able to answer these questions I believe that we are on the way to creating our vision. Priority Addressed: Technology As is shown in our STaR chart results, technology is decreasing in use. Our StaR Chart shows a decrease in Leadership, Administration, & Instructional Support in the past three years. This is another tend that shows we are fallowing behind. If we spend the time todevelop a our vision and had serious discussions on technologies used in classrooms we will be on the right track. By Goal 1: To develop vision for technology for New Braunfels Middle School reviewing current journal articles such as those in this class we are developing a base of knowledge to make better decisions on the Action Steps: future of our school.

    • During the interview with Carol Cochran it became aware that we were lacking staff development in current technologies. (Cochran, 2009) As the District Technology Integration Specialist for Secondary Schools, she is in the position to help plan for staff developments in this area. At this time there are plans for Staff Development Sessions in the area of integration. These sessions will not be held until the summer of 2010. It then falls upon us to fill this need for our campus. It is not the goal of this staff development session to produce experts in every technology application. Mary Burns tells us that, “Teachers came to recognize that a small amount of input (their technical knowledge) could result in increased output (student’s improved work using technology.) (Burns, 2002) It is the goal to create an awareness of technologies that teachers may not have begun to think of. With this new awareness teachers will come to realize that they need not be experts to use the technology in classes resulting in increased productivity of students.

    • Evaluation Teachers will need ongoing support to have successful integration of technology into their classes. Regular discussion groups will help provide some of this support. Attendance will be taken at discussion groups. Attendance is required for all teachers. Upon completion of all required discussion group meetings, teachers will receive 2 hours of Professional Development credit. All teachers are expected to use three new types of technology during the last 9 weeks of school. Lesson Plans and walk through will be used as documentation that expectations were met.
