What does the data trend? In some areas we are showing advanced technology. In other areas we are showing to be developing. Over the years we show an indication that we are not developing our technology in our school. The data shows that our school requires more training and use of technology in the classroom.
What can we do to make changes and improvement. Review Technology Applications TEKS Use the technology that is available at the school. (Smart boards, Computer Lab, Mobi, Elmos, Internet Resources) Attend Technology Professional Development. Develop more onsite training.
