We will use DBA scores, administrative walk throughs, lessonplan check, and student class assessments in core subjects to evaluate and monitorimplementation and effectiveness of utilization. STaR Chart SummaryOur two lowest averages over the 3 year period were Teaching and Learning and EducatorPreparation. Although these were our lowest scores they still fell in the Advanced Tech range. Inthe Statewide summary it states that technology is integrated in core curriculum instruction. Iwould agree with this to a certain degree. Most of the technology we use is integrated with thecore curriculum, but it is not done often enough. Administrators do recognize technology usagein the building. However, there is not time allotted for on-going professional development.Based on the above references I have planned the following professional development activities: 1. PLC teams will generate ideas by grade level to integrate technology into instruction for core subjects to incorporate methods of instruction which meet the needs of different levels of learners. 2. Instruction on utilizing programs that can be used in the classroom for meeting the needs of differentiated learning styles. 3. IT Specialist and Instructional Coaches will develop a list and share with classroom teachers, of websites and accessible software programs that help differentiate instruction through the integration of technology. 4. Instructional Coaches will instruct and model the format that will be used in campus lesson plans to exhibit differentiated instruction utilizing technology into the instruction of core subjects.Page 4 – Revised October 2009
