Educational Technology Resources New York State

  1. 1. Nov 2 Stan Silverman New York Institute of Technology
  2. 2. Metiri Group <ul><ul><ul><li>The state of New York does not currently hold a collective, forward looking vision for how technology will be used to advance teaching, learning, and leading in this 21 st Century. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Student use of computers in New York schools, on average, is limited to two or less hours per week, and is focused primarily on drill and practice and online research. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Unlike many other states in the nation, New York does not currently have a state-sponsored broadband network to serve K-12 schools and other USNY systems. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Nearly all learning environments and administrative offices in New York schools have high speed Internet connectivity, and the majority of schools report student-to-computer ratios of 5:1 or better. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><ul><ul><li>While most teachers in New York schools consider themselves to be highly skilled in basic uses of technology (e.g., word processors, presentation software, and email), considerably fewer consider themselves proficient in most advanced or web-based skills in using online research, data analysis software, multimedia, the use of new technologies such as white boards and digital tools to access digital content, or the use of Web 2.0 tools such as wikis, blogs, and online networking environments. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>With some notable exceptions, there is a lack of systems thinking and systemic capacity within USNY to drive innovative uses of technology the state’s K-12 schools. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The use of technology for administrative purposes (e.g., data-driven decision making, eCommunication, teacher productivity with technology, online professional development) is gaining momentum due to NCLB requirements. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>USNY has tremendous resources within its institutions that are currently inaccessible to most K-12 students in New York. These resources represent tremendous learning opportunities that could be tapped through systematic digital content research and development projects. </li></ul></ul></ul>
