study process
Funded by the South Dakota Department of Education through SDADE, which is South Dakota's Federally Funded Star Schools Project.

Major focus of evaluation centers on use and application of the Digital Dakota Network.

Study Process
evaluation methods
Evaluation Methods
  • 32 high schools and elementary schools visited statewide by evaluator pairs.
  • Data collection commenced in February and ended in May 2002, with site visit summaries constructed August through December 2002.
  • Qualitative methods, including interview, focus groups, observation, and hardware audit were used.
ddn instructional uses
DDN Instructional Uses
  • Collaboration activities (research data comparisons, foreign language exchanges)
  • Enrichment activities (Dr. Seuss Day, Mystery Reader, performances, Buffalo Round-up)
  • Expert access (Smithsonian, EROS)
  • High School course delivery
  • College course delivery
ddn logistical uses
DDN Logistical Uses
  • Teacher professional development activities
  • Meetings between Educational service providers (LOFTI)
  • Regional consortia meetings between administrators or teachers
  • Community “Cracker Barrel” sessions
  • Athletic seeding and bracketing
  • Community organization use (mental health services)
over arching evaluation findings
Over-arching Evaluation Findings
  • South Dakota schools are filled with educational technologies and folks who can robustly use them
  • The DDN system is an underutilized resource in most schools
  • Conditions for optimal I-TV are consistent from site to site
  • Barriers to use are generally local and not system-related
barriers to be addressed
Barriers to be Addressed
  • Lack of access
  • Inconsistent bell schedule
  • Attitude the interactive video is just for small schools
  • Lack of incentives for teacher/instructor
  • Difficulty of distance delivery courses
  • Suspicion that new state administration will not support the DDN
  • Belief that system replaces teaching peers and postions
conditions for exceptional use
Exceptional planning

Remote site supervision

Teacher incentives

Motivated students

Principals and superintendents with foresight

Activating and leveraging local partnerships

Conditions for Exceptional Use
regional or state delivery criteria for analysis
Regional or State Delivery:Criteria for Analysis
  • Bell and school schedule compatibility
  • Flexibility of interaction technologies used
  • Duration of consortia affiliations
  • Activity level of current consortia
  • Access to remote instructional sites
  • Teacher availability
  • Demographics
  • Distribution of operation costs (technical support, bridges, etc.)
criteria
Criteria . . .
  • Nature and prevalence of professional peer group collaborations (professional development, special education, conferences, etc.)
  • Coordination of extra-curricular activities (athletics, administrative, etc.)
  • Availability of I-TV operation expertise
  • Participation and support of community partners—or capacity to attract the support
effects of regional delivery model
Effects of Regional Delivery Model
  • Community viability
  • Remote site contacts
  • Distributed expertise
  • Re-energized cooperatives
  • Tailored I-TV curriculum
  • Better interactions with remote supervisors

limitations of the study
Limitations of the Study
  • The self-selection process may bias and results toward the more progressive districts.
  • Schools for site visits were selected from among volunteers. The lack of randomization may skew toward technology-users.
  • Site selection could tend to result in the perception that schools are further along in the Interactive Video (DDN) adoption process than they really are.
applying the lens of evaluation
Applying the Lens of Evaluation
  • Delivery models
  • System utility
    • Dominated by course delivery
    • Applies traditional pedagogies
    • Abandons constructivist approaches
  • Contextual factors
  • Staying true to the notion of meaningful learning (theory-driven)?
