What We Have Learned

Best Technology Practices

Information Systems & Technology Use

  • The importance of creating long range technology plans for the future – State, District, & School technology plans using the National Plan for Guidelines.
  • The importance of integrating technology into the teaching & learning process.
  • The importance of strategic technology planning to prepare students for the 21st Century.

Student at the center of the learning process

(Nagel, p. 4)

From the National Education Technology Plan (NETP): a depiction of the new model for student-centered learning.

texas long range technology plan
Texas Long RangeTechnology Plan
  • In our coursework, we learned that, the Long-Range Plan for Technology in Texas, 2006-2020, establishes a shared vision of teaching and learning, and the processes for improved student achievement, through the application and integration of technology. In addition, all states have curriculum standards to include technology across the curriculum.
  • For example in Texas, the Technology Applications Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) define what students need to know and be able to do to function in an information-based economy. By the end of Grade 8, students are required to master the TEKS in four key areas: Foundations, Information Acquisition, Problem Solving, and Communication.

Key Components of a Technology Plan

  • Introduction: Provides background information.
  • Assessment: Gives a description of the assessment process.
  • Goals Objectives: Gives needs and objectives of the plan.
  • Budget: Funding details of the plan
  • Evaluation: Gives the process and the methods for the implementation of the plan.

National Ed Tech Puts Technologyat the Heart of Education Reform

  • Key Areas of a Technology Plan
  • Assessment
  • Infrastructure
  • Learning
  • Productivity
  • Teaching

Nagel, (2010), p. 2-4.

  • Data collection is extremely important.
  • “Technology should be used in the classroom for ongoing assessments” (Nagel, p. 2).
  • Use of “interactive tools such as student response devices” (Nagel, p. 2).
  • Classroom clickers and “multimedia to reinforce concepts and measure progress” (Nagel, p. 2). Scanners are also used for data driven assessment tools.
  • “The infrastructure goals for the plan are to provide students and teachers with ‘access to a comprehensive infrastructure for learning when and where they need it” (Nagel, p. 2).
  • Key Elements of the Infrastructure
  • Broadband in all locations
  • Internet access to all students & teachers
  • Computers, smart phones, tablets, & other technologies
  • Increased usage of the cloud for service delivery

Nagel, (2010), p. 2

  • The NETP puts the learner at the center of the learning environment.
  • It is necessary to have support from teachers, parents, mentors, peers, and technology.
  • The students stays in control of the learning atmosphere.
  • Self paced & individualized learning
  • Game based learning – to meet core subject content “The new is collaborative, with information shared, discussed, refined with others, and understood deeply” (Sollomon, G. & Schrum, L. (2007), p. 20.

Kids derive many benefits from playing such games. They learn to:

  • Cooperate, collaborate, and work in teams
  • Make effective decisions under stress
  • Take prudent risks in pursuit of objectives
  • Make ethical and moral decisions
  • Employ scientific deduction
  • quickly master and apply new skills and information
  • Think laterally and strategically
  • persist and solve difficult problems
  • Understand and deal with foreign environments and cultures
  • Manage businesses and people

  • NETP wants schools to utilize “models from the business world to increase productivity” (Nagel, p. 4).
  • Prepare our students for their college education and the workplace
  • Increase access to online resource materials for teachers
  • Use social networking technology
  • Distance learning opportunities for students
  • Technology for teacher in-service

Nagel, (2010) p. 4.

Developing a School DistrictTechnology Plan
  • “An effective technology plan is based on the shared vision of educators, parents, community members and business leaders who have technological expertise” (November, A. (1998), p. 1.
  • “It also specifies how the technology will be paid for and how its use will be supported” (November, A. (1998), p. 1).

November, A. (1998), p. 1.

goals in creating a district technology plan
Goals in Creating a District Technology Plan
  • “The plan for integrating technology into the school is based on the school or district’s educational vision and is part of an overall school-improvement plan.
  • The technology plan aims to improve student learning, to help students perform authentic tasks, and to help students learn skills that will prepare them for future careers.
  • Educators, parents, students, and community members support the school’s initiatives in the use of technology.
  • Professional development and support for staff is provided on an ongoing basis.
  • The technology plan is periodically reviewed and updated” November, A. (1998), p. 1.

  • All campuses have completed STaR Charts
  • Critical Factors for achieving NCLB, E-Rate, and Long-Range Plan for Technology Requirements

Technology Plans are Required by the State:

Campus and district improvement plans adopted under the requirements of the Texas Education Code must include the integration of technology in instructional and administrative programs

Under the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Title II, Part D, Enhancing Education Through Technology, the law states that in order to be eligible to receive a subgrant from the State educational agency, a local educational agency or eligible local entity shall sub it to the State educational agency an application containing a new or updated local long-range strategic educational technology plan that is consistent with the objectives of the statewide educational plan.

In addition, schools and districts are required to have an approved technology plan to participate in the federal Schools and Libraries Universal Service Support Mechanism better known as E-Rate. Resource: Texas e-Plan Online Technology Planning System (2010)

Steps to Technology Plan Approval Process

E-Rate is a common name for The Schools and Libraries Universal Service Fund

It provides discounts to assist schools and libraries

This assistance helps obtain affordable telecommunications services and Internet access.

TEA approves technology plans for K-12 schools.

The assessment tools for technology plans are the Texas STaR Charts.

The Texas STaR Charts are completed once a year.

improvements that could be made to the beaumont isd technology plan
Improvements That Could Be Made to the Beaumont ISDTechnology Plan
  • A digital world needs safeguards that can ensure the personal safety of our students. We could add curriculum that could teach safety standards to our students to increase awareness and provide a safer digital environment.
  • Provide technology innovative programs that could promote parental involvement, increase communication with parents and community members, and community access to technology resources.
  • Develop strategies for libraries to include technology and professional development training for utilizing online tools and smart devices such as Kindles and Nooks in school library facilities.
  • Increase budgeting for students and teachers to utilize online resources such as virtual field trips and distance learning opportunities.
  • National Ed Tech Puts Technologyat the Heart of Education Reform
  • Our state recognizes the importance of technology
  • Beaumont ISD is setting goals and objectives to meet the technology needs of our students so that they can be successful in our expanding digital world
