Parents want information pushed to them rather than having to look it up themselves 2. No single tool or communications mode fits all parents 3. Mobile app features are valued 4. Personal social media usage does not necessarily translate into best usage for district communications 5. Administrators’ views and parents’ views may differ based upon personal experiences with the tools

  55. 55. The Data 2 Information = Knowledge Process Introducing our Speak Up methodology Step 4: creating actionable knowledge from these statements Actionable Knowledge: Translates data into next steps…  Our teachers have less access and thus less exposure to mobile device usage in the classroom than their peers nationwide. Research indicates that comfort level is important for teachers to advance using new technologies. Action – we need to increase the availability of these devices for teacher usage.  Our teachers have stronger interest in PD for mobile learning than teachers across the country. Interest in PD is a good sign of readiness. Action – we need to identify & deliver high quality PD on mobile learning in a way that supports our teachers’ existing interest. Poll teachers on appropriate methodologies for PD.  Our teachers need additional support to build up their comfort with using devices in the classroom. Acknowledging where teachers are today in their comfort levels is important for planning PD and support resources. Action – we should identify other ways to support our teachers as they build up their competencies and capacities. Explore mentoring programs and online PLCs.
