    22. 47. Traditional Education Technology Implementation Cycle The traditional technology implementation cycle in schools involves implementing only 1 or 2 pieces of the critical 6 piece whole at a time. By the time a schools completes all 6 steps of the cycle, it’s time to start all over with step 1. As a result, the school is perpetually behind and teachers perpetually lack the tools they need to properly harness technology to the learning process. Content Hardware Professional Development Technical Support Infrastructure Productivity Tools
    23. 48. Technology Immersion Implementation With the Technology Immersion model, schools implement all 6 critical technology resources at the same time as part of a “technology immersion package”. Now teachers have the tools they need to assess student proficiency and develop multimedia lesson plans targeted at student skill strength and weakness areas. Equally as important, students are given the same tools as teachers, including wireless notebook computers to use at school and at home. Software Hardware Technical Support Online Assessment Digital Content Professional Development Technology Immersion
    24. 49. Six Critical Components of a Technology Immersion Package <ul><li>A wireless mobile computing device for each student for use at home and school </li></ul><ul><li>Ongoing professional development for teachers and administrators through proven training models </li></ul><ul><li>Online instructional resources in the core subjects </li></ul><ul><li>Online formative and diagnostic assessment tools </li></ul><ul><li>Productivity software tools </li></ul><ul><li>Technical support </li></ul>
