Introduction <ul><li>The slide presentation that you are about to see is hopefully going to allow its viewers an insight to the state mandated long-range plan for Texas school’s technology, for 2006-2020. The author has utilized a local district’s campus standings to help emphasize the urgency of the matter at hand… </li></ul>
A Look Into the Future <ul><li>Imagine an education system where…… </li></ul><ul><li>Students can expect higher performance and deeper engagement in academic, real world endeavors by accessing digital tools and resources available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week (24/7) appropriate to individual strengths, needs, and learning styles. Students know they will be prepared to thrive in a global workforce with changing economic implications. </li></ul><ul><li>Parents can expect not only to participate more directly in their children’s education but also to improve their own knowledge as parents and citizens. Communications increase as parents have 24/7 access to learning resources and student information such as achievement, attendance, and discipline. </li></ul><ul><li>Educators can expect to access and use student information on demand in order to individualize instruction. The use of digital tools and resources and 24/7 professional development opportunities transform the educators’ role in the educational process. Increased communication will enhance collaboration between school, home, and community. </li></ul><ul><li>Community and school board members can expect more effective and efficient use of fiscal resources and human capital. Increased communication and participation in the educational decision-making process is enhanced through the use of anytime, anywhere digital tools and resources. </li></ul><ul><li>APA citing and copyright usage approval on last page of presentation* or can be found @ http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/technology/etac/LRPToct06.pdf </li></ul>

AD Wheat’s Future <ul><li>Technology Needs: </li></ul><ul><li>Our goal is to achieve "Star Chart" Target Tech in all areas of technology, on all campuses and in all administrative offices. According to the results of our STaR Chart, we are currently at Developing Tech in the area of teaching and learning. Our campuses rate our educator preparation at Advanced Tech, our administration and support services at Developing Tech, and our infrastructure for technology at Developing Tech. </li></ul><ul><li>Our survey of administrators shows that our teachers are feeling more confident in the use of technology, but now are ready for assistance and training to integrate technology. The Technology Applications TEKS are incorporated at the secondary level, but must be promoted at the elementary level. </li></ul><ul><li>Based on our district inventory, we have access to computers in every office and classroom in the district, but hope to provide additional computers on each campus in our effort to reach a 3:1 student/computer ratio. Additional computers in each classroom will meet the needs of some campuses, while additional stationary or mobile labs will be utilized to meet the needs of others. </li></ul><ul><li>Our district technology committee sees a definite need to provide assistance in lesson plans integrating technology for all content areas. </li></ul><ul><li>Time is always a commodity in education and providing these lesson plans will reduce this obstacle and allow more time-on-task for teachers. In addition, increased staff to support the use of technology and its integration will be beneficial. </li></ul>
Summary <ul><li>Cleburne ISD is committed to the integration of technology into the total educational environment. Through equitable distribution and access, technologically literate students will access, acquire, evaluate, and apply knowledge to become productive members of our local community as well as a competitive global society. </li></ul><ul><li>We see our district as a community of lifelong learners consisting of both students and adults. The mission of Cleburne ISD is to provide students a variety of opportunities to reach their full academic and career potential by equipping educators with the necessary resources and technological skills. We will address the diverse abilities, multiple intelligences, and learning styles of our students through the seamless integration of technology. Students will become technologically adept individuals who utilize real world applications and respond to innovations and new developments with the ability to succeed in tomorrow’s global society. </li></ul>
