instructional technology planning50
As the development and alignment of standards, educational objectives, curriculum and assessments evolve, technology use must be modified to support these goals.Instructional Technology Planning
technology uses
Level 1: Literacy Uses (Goal 25%)

Subject of instruction, keyboarding, PowerPoint, scheduled in a lab, classes such as Computer Application

Level 2: Integrated uses (Goal 10%)

Initiated by teachers, support traditional tasks and assessments, drill and practice, ILS, word processing, instructional games and productivity tools (If we took the technology out of the room the same thing could occur)

Technology Uses
technology uses52
Level 3: Transformative uses (Goal 65%)

Innovative learning tasks, focus on developing process skills, transfer of learning occurs, initiated by students and teachers (If you took technology away we can’t do these things without it).

Adapted from Ian Jukes work

Technology Uses
What impacts learning most is how students, teachers, and administrators use technology in the school on a daily basis.
where we stand today
Both district and school-based planning teams determine how technology is best suited to support improved student achievement (including prioritization of spending).Where we stand today...
continuous school improvement strategies
Define educational objectives and desired results for students

Link assessments/measurements to those objectives

Create a plan to achieve them and implement

Document results and analyze the results

Evaluate the technology’s effectiveness against ISTE’s NET standards

Evaluate results-based staff development efforts
