  1. IDEAL Leveraging the collective intelligence of the Open Source community Sam DiGangi, Ph.D. Angel Jannasch-Pennell, Ph.D. Jeff Beeman Josh Ryan Applied Learning Technologies Institute Arizona State University 

  2. IDEAL IDEAL (Integrated Data Enhancing Arizona's Learning) connects Arizona's 58,000 teachers in an online environment that provides opportunities for interaction, training, help with No Child Left Behind issues, and more. The ultimate goal of IDEAL is to increase the academic achievement of all Arizona students. • Provide a single location for learners, teachers and parents to access learning resources • Deliver formative assessments to prepare for AIMS • Provide feedback on student’s mastery relative to state standards • Make parental involvement easier and more robust

  3. IDEAL Current IDEAL features include: • Many broad-reaching professional development resources • The Arizona School Improvement Plan • Item Bank for Formative Assessments • Pre-made Formative Assessments • Resources for teaching, including videos

  4. IDEAL Planned IDEAL Features: • Access provided to all K-20 Arizona students • Built in accessibility options • Sophisticated assessment applications • Parent access • Lifelong learning

  5. IDEAL Next Steps: In first half of 2007 the first groups of students will be brought into the environment. Students will have access to: • Online formative assessments created by teacher • Feedback on student’s mastery relative to state standards • A classroom site where homework can be turned in • Collaboration environment

  6. IDEAL Student Access Details • Phase one: full access to students in two Arizona districts (begin SP 2007) • Phase two: one million K-12 students

  7. IDEAL Rationale for IDEAL: • Technology and NCLB • Opportunities inherent to technology • Linking teachers and schools to resources

  8. IDEAL Conception, evolution and current realization, and future of IDEAL: • Stakeholders and funding • Technical specifications • Open ended contract: specific elements (e.g. student access) with room for expansion (e.g. support applications) • Open source basis implies ease of continuation

  9. IDEAL Stakeholders: • Arizona Department of Education • Arizona State University Applied Learning Technologies Institute (alt^I) • US Department of Education • Arizona Districts • Arizona Principals • Arizona Teachers • Students • Parents

  10. IDEAL Stakeholder issues met by: • Contract • Frequent meetings on many levels • Tech committee • Data team (ADE, ASSET, alt^I) • Evolution of levels of collaboration, e.g. • Addition of ADE to QA • Revision of IDEAL to offer direct content input to ADE

  11. IDEAL Lessons learned: role of helpdesk: • Helpdesk data provided to ADE • Helpdesk feedback from teachers and principals provided to developers as well as to ADE • Technical support • ADE information provided • Content questions answered

  12. IDEAL More lessons learned: • Cost: benefits of open source • Universal accessibility, usability easiest if incorporated from the beginning • QA process • Ethics and security • Problem of older data in districts, etc. • Legal issues: older laws did not foresee Statewide learning environments
