  1. 1. Darin Schumacher Technology: An Investment in our Students that Benefits our Community
  2. 2. Technology: An Investment in our Students that Benefits our Community <ul><li>Preparing Students for the Workplace </li></ul><ul><li>Engaging Students with Quality Lesson Plans </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing Test Scores </li></ul><ul><li>NCLB data used for instructional planning and data collection </li></ul>
  3. 3. Preparing Students for the Workplace <ul><li>Research shows that when students learn to use and apply applications used in the world of work, such as word processors, spreadsheets, and computer-aided drawing, they acquire some of the prerequisite skills for workforce preparedness (Cradler 2002). </li></ul>Menu
  4. 4. Preparing Students for the Workplace <ul><li>A Study of four health career programs in California demonstrated the effectiveness of work-based learning models such as tech prep and career academies that integrate students’ work experience with academic subjects such as math, English, science, and social studies. The students learn how to conduct themselves in workplace environments (Cradler 2002). </li></ul>Menu
  5. 5. Engaging Students with Quality Lesson Plans <ul><li>Students are adaptive to changing technology. </li></ul><ul><li>If technology is implemented with research based instructional strategies it can enhance effective lessons (Brabec, Fisher, & Pitler 2004). </li></ul>Menu
  6. 6. Engaging Students with Quality Lesson Plans <ul><ul><ul><li>Technology will allow more teachers to collaborate and increase the effectiveness of technology planning (Cradler 2002). </li></ul></ul></ul>Menu
  7. 7. Increasing Test Scores <ul><ul><ul><li>“ A n an eight-year longitudinal study of SAT-I performance at New Hampshire’s Brewster Academy, students participating in the technology-integrated school reform efforts demonstrated average increases of 94 points in combined SAT I performance over students who participated in the traditional school experience ” (Cradler, McNabb, Freeman, Burchett 2002). </li></ul></ul></ul>Menu
  8. 8. Increasing Test Scores <ul><li>“ R e search shows that traditional methods of teaching can no longer be utilized to capture the interest of children who are being reared during the rapid growth of the computer age ” (Harvey-Woodall 2009). </li></ul><ul><li>This will help teachers understand individual learning styles and shift their instruction to student-centered instruction. </li></ul>Menu
  9. 9. NCLB data used for instructional planning <ul><ul><ul><li>Increased use of online testing and improved turnaround time on test scores, will allow teachers to focus on curriculum that students need to improve (Palozzi and Spradlin 2006). </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Technology can be used to enable research to be conducted to document and provide scientific evidence of the effectiveness of instructional interventions (Cradler 2002). </li></ul></ul></ul>Menu
  10. 10. NCLB data used for instructional planning <ul><ul><ul><li>The ECS study defines a smart desktop as a Web-based application that helps teachers store and retrieve information about individual students (Cradler 2002). </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This information can be used to plan lessons that fit an individual students needs. </li></ul></ul></ul>Menu
  11. 11. Summary <ul><li>An investment in technology with help teachers collaborate and develop research based lesson plans. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology will make reporting and storing data used for instructional planning more effective. </li></ul>Menu
  12. 12. Summary <ul><li>Preparing students for technology used in the workforce will benefit our community. </li></ul><ul><li>Students will have increased test scores with the implementation of technology with quality lesson plans. </li></ul>Menu
