INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY_______________________________________________________________________________________Department of Elementary and Secondary Education * Phone: (573) 751-8247 * E-mail: instrtech@dese.mo.gov SESSION TOPICS Why districts and schools should integrate technology MSIP, NCLB, METSP standards and goals Planning for effective technology implementation DESE resources: planning website, templates, exemplary plans Creating and submitting plans for state approval DESE resources: ePeGS, related guidance documents How to fund and support technology DESE programs, grant writing/funding resources

  3. INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY_______________________________________________________________________________________Department of Elementary and Secondary Education * Phone: (573) 751-8247 * E-mail: instrtech@dese.mo.gov Research says… Since the 1960s, the demand for routine manual task skills has decreased, while the demand for non-routine interactive task skills has increased significantly (OECD 2007) Technology-enhanced, project-based student work is a staple of quality knowledge work (Schlechty 2001) Students who are engaged: learn at high levels and have a profound grasp of what they learn, retain what they learn, and can transfer what they learn to new contexts (Schlechty) Computers and software are tools students use to create their own learning environment (Ashton, Bland, & Rogers 2001; Milken 1999)

  4. INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY_______________________________________________________________________________________Department of Elementary and Secondary Education * Phone: (573) 751-8247 * E-mail: instrtech@dese.mo.gov Research says… (cont.) Lack of student engagement is a predictor for dropping out of school even after controlling for student background and academic achievement (Rumberger 2004) Engaged students learn more, retain more, and enjoy learning more that students who are not engaged (Dowson & McInerney 2001; Hancock & Betts 2002; Lumsden 1994; Voke 2002) According to student surveys: 47% stated that a major reason for dropping out of school was that classes were not interesting (Gates Foundation 2006) 50% reported being bored in at least one high school class every day and 75% stated they were bored because the material was not interesting (Yazzie-Mintz 2006)

  5.
