Understanding Transformation and Linking Technology to Student Learning

400 views

Published on

This presentation demonstrates our district’s professional development process for technology that is based on a district technology grant process. It will include the research behind the vision that I used to establish our goals for technology. I will share the continuum for learning as well as the teacher reflections throughout the process. Last, I will share how our technology integration is linked to student learning and has developed teacher leaders. This has been a 6-year process and shows how our teachers transformed from using a PC lab environment to a personalized learning environment.

  • It’s about change
  • Labs – Adoption Shared access Different devices -
  • Levels the playing field, doesn’t limit our knowledge building, prepares students in today’s world and for the future
  • Inspired to take the risk
  • Uneven distribution Doesn’t and should not Example – Barbara Harmann Example – SMART Board – showed initiative – we do not do technology time
  • This is what we experienced.

    3. 3. Key MessageTechnology is about people, not technology.  To have a technological connection between the district, school, classroom, and personal level.  To understand and know the stages that teachers experience as they bring technology into their classroom and move toward transformation.  To establish evidence are artifacts that articulate student learning through technology.

    14. 14. Stage 0: • I am not concerned about it. Awareness • The user has no interest, is taking no action. • I would like to know more about it. Stage 1: • The user is taking the initiative to learn more about theInformational innovation. Stage 2: • How will using it affect me? Personal • The user has definite plans to begin using the innovation.
    15. 15. • I seem to be spending all my time getting materials Stage 3: ready.Management • The user is making changes to better organize use of the innovation. • How is it affecting my learners?

    21. 21. Evidence What you ask for is important.  Explain how technology makes student learning better or how you could not do this without the technology.  Identify the content area(s) or target(s) or skill(s) that will be impacted by your instruction with technology.  An analysis of the impact that using technology had on student learning. In other words, describe and provide the data that shows a positive impact on student achievement using examples from your collection of evidence.
