  • 1. Texas STaR Chart
    From the past……….
    To the future…….
  • 2. Texas STaR Chart
    Since 2006, we have significantly changed our views when it comes to approaching technology. In the past three years on this campus, we have gone from a campus that was more than 5o years old to a campus that is brand new and more technological-savvy. Gone are the days of the overhead projector that you had to balance by using textbooks. Gone are the days where there was only one digital projector on campus and you had to adjust your lesson plans due to the fact there was a two week waiting list.
  • 3. Texas STaR Chart
    Stands for School Technology and Readiness
    It is used to assess the needs and set goals for the use of technology in the classroom to support student achievement.
    The STaR chart has 4 performance descriptions: Early Tech, Developing Tech, Advanced Tech and Target Tech.
  • 4. Texas STaR Chart
    The STaR chart also aligns itself with the Texas Long Range Plan for Technology to make sure campuses are meeting the goals of the plan.
    There are 4 key areas:
    Teaching and Learning
    Educator Preparation and Development
    Leadership, Administration and Instructional Support
    Infrastructure for Technology
  • 5. Texas STaR Chart
    Today, we are going to analyze our technological readiness during a 3-year period on our campus.
    Are we ready to meet the demands of the 21st century learner?
  • 6. Texas STaR Chart
    According to our campus summary for 2006 – 2007, we were at Advanced Tech for Technology Infrastructure. It may not seem like it but according to district standards, we were up to level as far as technology was concerned.
    We were also at Advanced Tech for Leadership, Administration and Instructional Support. This information is evident on the next slide

  • 8. Texas STaR Chart
    We moved to our current location at the start of the 2007-2008 school year. Everything was updated with the latest technology.
    The summary for 2007-2008 shows that our campus was at Developing Tech for Teaching and Learning, Educator Preparation and Development and Infrastructure for Technology.
    Budget cuts throughout the district limited the availability of training classes plus working out all the bugs in the new building was a strenuous task
  • 9.
  • 10. Texas STaR Chart
    For the following school year 2008 – 2009, it was a breakthrough year for our campus.
    Our new objective for the school year was that ALL teachers were to incorporate new technology into their lesson plans.
    Every week, some type of training for technology was available on our campus.
  • 11. Texas STaR Chart
    With most of the budget restrictions lifted and all the facilities in place, we were prepared to face any obstacles.
    By mid–semester it was evident that this approach had paid off. For our campus summary for 2008-2009, we were Advanced Tech in all categories.

  • 13. 2009 and beyond……
  • 14. ……..In closing
    It seemed that every year our campus, as a whole, has improved overall. This benefits the students with improved learning, the staff with increased knowledge, administration satisfied that the resources are being utilized and an infrastructure capable of performing the tasks that is needed to succeed.
