  4. 4. EDLD 5352 Instructional Leadership: The Technology LinkLisa Simmons EA1191 March 14thNOTE: This plan is based on my evaluation of the STaR chart information and Texas Long-Range Plan form weeks 2 and week 3: According to our campus data I would select OnlineLearning, TL6, because STaR Chart data shows that over 73% of campus staff are classifiedEarly Tech or Developing Tech. Most teachers are not using activities that incorporate web-based activities. Campus teachers are familiar with online TEKS based resources and ourdistrict’s Curriculum Plan Guides, CPG, that incorporate online learning activities; yet they arenot comfortable using them. Our campus does not support 24/7/365 access to onlineopportunities or digital resources.”The Web certainly opens us up to all sorts of conversationson a global scale. But this new Web also makes it much easier to tap into resources just downthe road as well” (Richardson, W. 2007). Our students are denied an abundance of expertsources outside the walls of our campus. With the staff, I would like to examine the standardsand the curriculum guides to see what we can immediately implement in our instruction. Thenmake a plan for the future with a timeline. I began my plan with a needs assessment, which was stressed in our video week 3,roundtable discussion. Ms. Crawford advised us to begin with assessment during this videointerview (roundtable discussion, March 7, 2011). After reading about internet safety, bullying, and copyright laws I am going to add thiscomponent to my action plan. According to Adelman H. (2004) a recent study showed that onein five youths “received a sexual solicitation or approach in the past year” (p17). Teachingchildren about online safety needs to begin as soon as possible. I teach about “StrangerDanger’ to my prekindergarten and kindergarten classes; this seems no different. In addition,administrators and teachers need to know copyright laws and fair usage rules. “For school anddistrict administrators, today, copyright should be front and center on the agenda.” (Davidson H.2005, pS2). As educators we set the tone in our classrooms and we must role modelacceptable behaviors.Resources:Texas Education Association. (2006). Texas star chart: Campus chart.
