Week 4 Assignment: Due at the end of Week 4.
Overview
Last week, you engaged in an analysis and wrote a report describing the use of technology and
information systems to enrich campus curriculum, enhance teaching and learning, and generally
integrate technology into our campus improvement plans to effectively integrate technology and
instructional leadership. Your analysis and report should provide the necessary background for
the Week 4 major assignment – developing an action plan for gathering, analyzing, and using
data from a variety of sources for informed campus decision making focusing on integrating
technology, instructional leadership, professional development and organizational leadership.
As a result of this week’s assignments, you will be able to:
   •   Examine and assess procedures for gathering, analyzing, and using data from a variety
       of sources for informed decision making regarding the integration of technology,
       instructional and organizational leadership (SBEC Principal Competency 7 indicator);
   •   Design and apply skills for monitoring and evaluating change and making needed
       adjustments to achieve the campus vision and goals, including the integration of
       technology as described above (SBEC Principal Competency 7 indicator).
Both of these outcomes are elements of Domain II, Instructional Leadership.
In writing your Week 4 action plan, use your interviews, your readings, including campus and
district improvement plans as well as any technology plans, and your Week 3 report to make
sure the action plan:
   •   Identifies data gathering sources;
   •   Provides a description of an organizational chart describing decision making
       responsibilities regarding the integration of technology from central office personnel to
       campus leadership and staff;
   •   Describes comprehensive professional development activities to achieve your action
       plan (this may utilize information from the previous three weeks of readings and
       activities);
   •   Includes an evaluation plan to assess the progress and success of the action plan.
Students will be asked to post their action plan on the Discussion Board and each student must
review and comment on at least one other action plan focusing on organizational leadership
designed to maximize the use of technology in data gathering and decision making.
Submit your assignment by 11:59 PM on the seventh day of Week 4.

Week 4 Assignment, Part 1: Development of an organization chart integrating
technology
Using the campus and district improvement plans, and any suggested technology
improvements, develop an organization chart that includes the following:

   •   Identify by title or job description all personnel/stakeholders responsible for integrating
       technology and instructional and organization leadership from the district office to the
       campus and classroom;
   •   Provide a brief description of the role and responsibilities of all identified personnel in
       your organizational chart;
   •   Discuss the role of the principal in making sure the organizational chart is implemented
       and monitored.

             Personnel Necessary to implement technology in an educational setting

Week 4 Assignment, Part 4: Posting your Action Report and Responding to Other
Students’ action plans
   Using the discussion board and the blog that you have developed, please write and post
   your action plan, and be sure to:

       •   Read and review at least two other action plans

       •   Respond to other action plans by posting your comments and reflections



   The purpose of the action report is to provide you with recommended procedures for
   gathering, analyzing, and using data from a variety of sources for informed campus decision
   making focusing on the effective integration of technology in curriculum, instruction,
   assessment and professional development. Students may wish to use this action plan as
   one of your school improvement projects for your Electronic Portfolio. You may also use the
   Week 3 and Week 4 assignments as campus supervised hours for your internship logs. As
   indicated these two weeks fall under Domain II, Instructional Leadership, and address
   elements of Competencies 4, 5 and 7.
