  • Last year teachers were interviewed and a survey was given to gauge how teachers were using district technology. This slide was developed with Wordle (http://www.wordle.net ). I copied teacher responses and pasted them into Wordle. The large words indicate the most frequent word that teachers used in their open-ended responses to “When learning and using technology in instruction, the most frustrating thing is…”
  • This Wordle creation was from the open-ended statement “When using PLCs and others to help learn and use technology in instruction is….”
  • This Wordle creation was from the open-ended statement “The professional development that I need to learn and use technology in instruction should be ….” How many of you learned something new with technology this summer—formally or informally?
  • Last year I began working with teachers and administrators with technology. This demonstrates the type of things that I did. Over half the time, I was working with teachers, assisting them with their most pressing technology integration needs. I also worked with campus and central office administration, assessment development, trouble shooting, my EdD research, training, and other tasks. I would like to increase the time that I have with teachers this year. My job centers on helping teachers.
  • The majority of my time with teacher assistance centered around assessment development, troubleshooting, and data results. Very little time was spent collaborating with teachers. I would like to spend more time with teachers this year collaborating. I can help you find different ways to teach with technology…
  • The base of all the technology we possess is our computers and the network.
  • Teachers and technolog…how are you feeling today? Many problems that we faced over several years have lessened or been eliminated…new computers, new OS, wireless hardware, etc.What beliefs and perceptions are preventing you from learning and using more technology tools in your instruction? Let me help!
  • 1. "It is the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed." - Charles Darwin2. "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." - Helen Keller3. "If two men on the same job agree all the time, then one is useless. If they disagree all the time, both are useless." - Darryl F. Zanuck4. "If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself." - Henry Ford5. "Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than the one where they sprang up." - Oliver Wendell Holmes6. "If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants."- Isaac Newton7. "It takes two to speak the truth -- one to speak, and another to hear." - Henry David Thoreau8. "If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas." - George Bernard Shaw9. "Politeness is the poison of collaboration." - Edwin Land10. "I never did anything alone. Whatever was accomplished in this country was accomplished collectively." - Golda Meir11. "It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed." - Napoleon Hill12. "No matter what accomplishments you make, somebody helped you." - Althea Gibson13. "The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team." - Phil Jackson14. "Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success." - Henry Ford15. "The lightning spark of thought generated in the solitary mind awakens its likeness in another mind." -- Thomas Carlyle

Teachers must have strong beliefs in formative assessment. 3. Communication lines must be open and responsive. 4. Teachers must see purpose in technology based formative assessment. 5. PLCs must share common beliefs & believe in student engagement. 6. PLCs must believe that formative assessment in instruction and the technology that assists and expedites the process is connected to school improvement and student achievement. What You Said 2012-2013…
    38. 38. PLCs – Professional Learning Communities  PLCs are teachers and administrators that “seek and share learning, and act on their learning” (Hord, 1997, p. 10)  PLCs are associated with workplace educational organizations arranged by subject or grade level by the educational hierarch of educators iFAIT innovative Formative Assessment with Instruction and Technology Marcia J. Talkmitt, EdD
    39. 39. CoPs – Communities of Practice  Often teachers in PLCs turn to communities of practice (CoPs) to develop their own identities and roles to meet the educational organization’s goals.  CoPs do not operate on agendas or set meetings, they “share their experiences and knowledge in free-flowing creative ways that foster new approaches to problems” (Wenger & Snyder, 2000) and may meet face-to-face or online. iFAIT innovative Formative Assessment with Instruction and Technology Marcia J. Talkmitt, EdD
    40. 40. PLC’s and CoP’s goals are to embrace the spirit of collaboration and enhance their effectiveness as professionals for the benefit of students. iFAIT innovative Formative Assessment with Instruction and Technology Marcia J. Talkmitt, EdD
    41. 41. iFAIT innovative Formative Assessment with Instruction and Technology Marcia J. Talkmitt, EdD 1) External factors outside of the teachers’ control – hardware, software, etc. (Ertmer, 1999; Ertmer, Ottenbreit-Leftwich, Sadik, Sendurur, & Sendurur, 2012; Kim, Kim, Lee, Spector, & DeMeester, 2013) Two types of barriers affect technology utilization in the classroom: 2) Internal factors – teacher beliefs and their perceptions.
    42. 42. What are your beliefs and perceptions on the use of technology in your teaching and assessment FOR learning? 1. I believe students should be assessed more subjectively with portfolios and other subjective methods. 2. I believe that you can’t adequately assess students in some subjects. 3. My course is not assessed at this grade level or subject area. 4. I don’t have the time to learn the technology. 5. I don’t have the support that I need to learn the technology. 6. I can’t work with her/him. We can’t work together. 7. Data doesn’t show everything that my students need to know. 8. There’s too much technology to learn with so many options. iFAIT innovative Formative Assessment with Instruction and Technology Marcia J. Talkmitt, EdD
    43. 43. Student Data and Slaton ISD iFAIT innovative Formative Assessment with Instruction and Technology Marcia J. Talkmitt, EdD
    44. 44. Please Don’t Be Offended When I Ask You: 1.Is it plugged in? 2.Did you save your work? 3.Specifically, what can I do to help? 4.Eduphoria: 1.Are you the “Teacher of Record”? 2.Did you create your test with the MANAGE tab? 3.Did you use the current SEs for your subject? I am here for you! iFAIT innovative Formative Assessment with Instruction and Technology Marcia J. Talkmitt, EdD
    45. 45. Please Don’t Be Offended When I Tell You: 1.Eduphoria will not allow data to be shown to you. 2. I don’t have time right now, will you please email me a reminder if I don’t do that for you? 3. School policy will not allow you or me to do that. 4. I don’t know, but I will find out or find someone who can help you. I am here for you! iFAIT innovative Formative Assessment with Instruction and Technology Marcia J. Talkmitt, EdD
    46. 46. iFAIT innovative Formative Assessment with Instruction and Technology Marcia J. Talkmitt, EdD How can I help?  How can I help you with technology prior to the start of school with your students August 19, 20, 21, 22, and 23?  What 2 days of the work week work best for me to help you with technology integration?  Would technology help sessions after school help you?  Would you like to collaborate with me or others to add more technology in your instruction?  Do you need help with Eduphoria?
