  7. 7. Professional Development Activity #1<br />The following activity is designed to evaluate national standards, and the progress of the campus based on Week 3’s findings. Campus instructional staff will gain knowledge on standards, analyze the campus’ technology use, and develop a plan to use technology to benefit instruction and curriculum. The entire professional development activity is designed for teachers to develop their own instructional practices around innovative technology use. They will also leave the session with a game plan on how to integrate technology, monitor its progress, and know it will be monitored, evaluated, and supported by administration based on the deadlines created.<br />
  8. 8. After a brief introduction, instructional staff survey a person from their department and other departments about technology use with instruction using the following chart:<br />
  9. 9. Professional Development Activity #1<br />Departments regroup and discuss briefly<br />Individuals share what they have learned to help principal fill in a campus chart enlarged on the wall.<br />Principal shows STaR chart areas for instructional staff, briefly explains the areas, the purpose of the STaR chart, and where they should be technologically according to the state.<br />Principal then asks for a few opinions about how the staff thinks the campus measures to the states standards.<br />
  10. 10. Professional Development Activity #1<br />Principal hands out the articles below and find three ways they can use information from the articles in their own classrooms. <br />Real Projects in a Digital World - Suzie Boss & Jane KraussBoss, S., & Krauss, J. (2007). Real projects in a digital world. Principal Leadership, 8(4), 22-26.<br />Blog Revolution: Expanding Classroom Horizons with Web Logs - Will RichardsonRichardson, W. (2005). Blog revolution: Expanding classroom horizons with web logs. Technology & Learning, 26(3).<br />
  11. 11. Professional Development Activity #1<br />Principal gathers ideas based on campus needs, and each department fills out the chart below:<br />
  12. 12. Professional Development Activity #2<br />Six weeks after the above training, the Special Populations Coordinator will meet with the teachers to take a brief survey regarding how implementing technology has changed their classrooms. This will also indicate differences in performance, participation, and attitude of all subpopulations. <br />The Special Populations Coordinator will then review the national standards mentioned in the previous development session, and go over the STaR chart areas. A survey similar to the actual STaR chart will be handed out for the teachers to fill out. It will then be tallied on a large board for us to determine the campus’ key areas classification. <br />The teachers will then devise an idea for each area to improve the campus classification when we fill out the real STaR chart next year.<br />The classification for the 2010-2011 school year will be used to drive instructional and staff development needs.<br />
  13. 13. Action Plan Evaluation:<br />The 2010-2011 campus improvement plan will include STaR Chart progress in at least one area.<br />STaR Chart data will be used to drive staff development on a campus and district level.<br />The district improvement plan will include instructional areas of improvement based on AEIS and AYP data. The number of computers will not be the sole focus of the district improvement plan.<br />The district technology plan will develop technology goals, using the STaR chart to move towards state and national standards.<br />
