  • 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

Using this information, SBDM determines what areas need toimprove, who needs to improve, and how improvement will be accomplished.Instructional Technology CoordinatorProvides the necessary technology tools and on-site training for teacher professionaldevelopment in order to effectively implement Technology TEKS in the classroom; presents i-safe training for teachers and students; and keeps teachers updated on current technologyapplications.Computer TechnicianMaintains operation of computer system in the district under the direction of the TechnologyDirector; responsible for licenses and archiving; maintain security and virus protection programs.Campus PrincipalsModels technology usage and oversees implementation of all technology on campus, provides asafe environment, leads teachers to technology resources, and provides appropriate technologyprofessional development.Campus TeachersRole of the teacher is changing from a traditional format to a more digital environment. Teachershould be technology literate and integrate technology across the curriculum. Teacher isresponsible for integrating instructional teaching (TEKS) and technology (TA TEKS) in theclassroom to prepare students with the knowledge and skills to succeed in the 21st century.Page 6 – Revised October 2009
  • EDLD 5352 Instructional Leadership: The Technology LinkCampus StudentsThey are our learners who receive information from the curriculum taught. They learn anddevelop technology skills that prepare them for the 21st century. They collaborate with teachers,classroom students, outside district students and experts through technology. Legislation requiresthat all students should be technology literate by the time they leave the eighth grade.Role of the PrincipalThe role of the principal is vital in transforming a school toward 21st century teaching inintegrating relevant technology knowledge and skills that are essential for our students. It’shis/her responsibility to implement and sustain usage of technology in the classroom for studentsto become technology proficient. An effective principle models usage of technology by usingtools for communicating to staff, students, and parents by e-mail, blogging, and webconferencing; analyzing data monitoring for professional development needs, campusimprovement needs, monitoring campus improvement goals and budget needs.Marc Prensky article Turning on the Lights outlines “principles for principals” for engagingstudent learning through technology in the classroom. Some of these principles are allowingstudents a meaningful voice in setting school policy regarding technology; eliminate boredomfrom the school; promote technology use and move to one-to-one computing; talk to studentsdaily about their learning; and orient your school toward the future.The principal provides a safe environment for teachers and students in integrating technology inthe classroom by nurturing teacher technology failures and encouraging continuance in usage oftechnology by teachers. The principal leads teachers to the necessary resources allowing teacherto effectively integrate technology in the classroom.Prensky, M. (2008). Turning on the lights.

  • EDLD 5352 Instructional Leadership: The Technology LinkWeek 4 Assignment, Part 4: Posting your Action Report and Responding to OtherStudents’ action plans Using the discussion board and the blog that you have developed, please write and post your action plan, and be sure to: • Read and review at least two other action plans • Respond to other action plans by posting your comments and reflections The purpose of the action report is to provide you with recommended procedures for gathering, analyzing, and using data from a variety of sources for informed campus decision making focusing on the effective integration of technology in curriculum, instruction, assessment and professional development. Students may wish to use this action plan as one of your school improvement projects for your Electronic Portfolio. You may also use the Week 3 and Week 4 assignments as campus supervised hours for your internship logs. As indicated these two weeks fall under Domain II, Instructional Leadership, and address elements of Competencies 4, 5 and 7. William Alexander EDLD 5352 3/18/11 I reviewed Sunny Lee Technology Action Plan and found it to be very detailed. I liked the mentor/mentee program and remembered how the round table discussion presenters from our video talked about this concept and how effective it could be; therefore, I added this activity in my plan. I also commented on the great idea of including technology application style and activity in the lesson plan template. This would create teacher accountability and provide data to the principal on the usage of technology in the classroom.Page 17 – Revised October 2009
