  14. 14. Plan Goals/Objectives <br />The progress of any change effort is ultimately dependent on not only the eager and willing teachers and staff but also those who are not so eager. <br />The two groups must work together to transform anxiety to proficiency and proficiency to mastery. <br />The problem is exacerbated when “teachers who are lacking skills are afraid to ask for help,” observed one participant. <br />
  15. 15. Plan Goals/Objectives cont.<br />Instead of thinking in the short term, both administrators and teachers must look at the bigger picture. <br />Although this at first seems difficult, creating a clear vision for learning and setting measurable educational goals is one of the keys to success. <br />Professional development tends to have a stronger impact when we frame it like this: “Let’s look at what students are learning this year and then see how technology can make it more effective.”<br />
