help in regular instruction and remedial instruction.Provide staff devlopment in use of technology tools.Develop campus specific curriculum to address technology tools use in all departments1a. Write a grant to partially fund the purchase of laptop carts, PC’s, and mimeos.1b. Use Title I and local funds to assist in the purchase of software.2a. Write a grant to partially fund the purchase of laptop carts and PC’s.2b. Use Title I and local funds to assist in the purchase of appropriate software.3. A variety of staff developments will be offered to teachers regarding implementation of technology.Increase in technology-based products from students in all subjects.Increase in student on-task behavior in the classrooms and observing students engaged in lessons.A paradigm shift with instruction in the classrooms.An increase in students’ academic results.Students become information seekers and use multi-media to produce products and progress through content 25% of classroom time.Teache facilitates classroom lessons through the use of technology 255 of the time.95% of students pass EOC’s in all content areas.Students use technology in the classroom on a weekly basis to produce 50% of the products required in the classroom.Teacher facilitates classroom lessons through the use of technology 50% of the time.99% of students pass EOC’s in all content areas.<br />Professional Development:<br />On my campus, the principal’s vision is for all students to become 21st century learners. In order to succeed in providing the appropriate instruction to accommodate such learners, the teachers have to become proficient or better in utilizing technology and technology tools. Therefore, a variety of professional developments have to be offered that will enable teachers to obtain the experience in utilizing technology. By analyzing the results of the Star Chart report, it is noted that more technology needs to be implemented in all classrooms. More multi-media should be used to produce products, and more teachers have to learn to facilitate technology into the classroom. The measure of the success of the implementation of an effective technology program will provide positive results when AEIS reports are analyzed. Incremental success can be determined by disaggregating District Benchmark scores every six weeks.<br />Mimeos (technology tool that turns the white board into an interactive board) were purchased for the math department and training was provided. However, more will need to be purchased for other departments and additional training is needed in order for teachers to get the full use out of the product. <br />Professional development that provides teachers with the ability to utilize blogs in the classroom and other multi-media tools will be needed. Teachers will need training on how to implement research engines, presentation tools, graphics and others.<br />Teachers will also need to learn how to create technology-based products in order to encourage students to use the same.<br />Overall, teachers and students will have to learn the ethics to internet use and how to avoid the pitfalls to having access to a wide range of information. Information regarding cyber bullies and how to remain safe on the internet with the use of PINS or pseudonyms as a means of identification will have to be introduced.<br />Department Chairs and Instructional Skills Specialist have to develop and write curriculums that help to effectively implement technology within our school. Then during departmental planning periods, teaches have to be trained on how to implement instructional strategies that include technology use. The curriculum developed also has to address the district needs as developed by the individuals throughout the organizational chart.<br />The Star Chart results also revealed that there should be an appropriate student/computer ratio. More computers are planned to be purchased to maintain a proper ratio, especially since reports predict that there will be an increase of student enrollment the next school year.<br />In summary, in order to increase student achievement in the school, teachers have to implement an effective program that meets the needs of diverse learners and provides a healthy diet of technology because we are instructing “digital natives”. A strong curriculum that assesses what has been taught and is properly aligned will aid in producing the desired results. Continuing professional development for teachers will give them the necessary skills to produce the quality instruction that is needed in order to keep pace with 21st century learners.<br />AISD Organizational Chart for Technology<br />
