Week Four Part 3 The technology action plan integrating instructional an organizational leadership must include evaluation components that provide measurable outcomes designed to address the following: • Uses data and other analysis from the Week 3 report, including using the campus and district improvement plans, and local or state technology plans; • Provides assessments and/or monitoring reports measuring professional development designed to use technology to improve the gathering, analysis and use of data from a variety of sources; • Provides assessments and/or monitoring evaluating professional development to improve decision making in the integration of technology with instructional and organizational leadership. For this component, I would implement a follow-up survey to be completed at the end of each six weeks. This would allow teachers to remain aware of the importance of integrating technology as well comply with integration ideas that were previously developed collaboratively. Teachers would also need to turn in lesson plans at the end of each week for the following week’s plan. This plan would show how they intended to incorporate technology in their lesson. By doing this, administrators can continue to monitor teachers’ use of technology and conference with them if they feel there is insecurity in this area.
