As curriculum becomes more advanced and dynamic, the resources required within the instruction and learning process needs to respond to those dynamics. How are local districts designing their classrooms to meet these needs? What elements would be essential in this environment?

Current Situation – Hardware focused

  • 2:1 Student:Computer ratio

– includes desktop computers and extendable computing terminals

  • Interactive whiteboards in all instructional areas
  • Portable computer for every teacher
  • 100% wireless coverage
  • Amplification systems in all K-5 classrooms (include specials i.e., library, art, music & PE)
  • Access to networked printing
  • Student Response systems in appropriate curricular areas
  • Google Apps for Education
  • BYOD policy/regulation

Curriculum

  • On-line curriculum for teachers
  • Shift to hybrid classrooms
  • Digital textbooks/resources

Professional Development

  • On-line and hybrid sessions
  • Customized offerings

Network Infrastructure

  • Increased bandwidth (currently 500 Mbps)
  • Increased wireless saturation (movement from 50/50 wired and wireless to greater wireless capacity)

Hardware

  • Shift to more agnostic OS requirements
    • Google Apps
    • On-line resources
    • Allow for support of both district owned (Windows 7/8.1) and BYOD
  • Managed Print – push to keep things digital, not paper
  • Tablet/Laptop/Desktop combined solution for teachers
    • Wireless connection to network and projector

Systems

  • Greater emphasis on data security
  • Cloud based, but with district oversite
  • Increased information for teachers, not just increased data
    • Data Warehouse

Instruction

  • Increased “flipping”
  • Hybrid courses
  • On-line courses, on-line office hours
  • Greater digital dependency (Google Apps, Digital Textbooks)

Where We Are

  • 2:1 Student to Computer Ratio
    • Desktops (Mostly in Labs)
    • Laptops
    • iPads (Mostly in K-3)
  • Data Projectors in all classrooms K-12
  • Interactive Whiteboards in all classrooms K-5
  • Laptop for every certificated employee
  • iPad mini for High School teachers
  • Amplification systems in all K-8 classrooms and specials
  • Networked printers and MFD’s accessible to all
  • Google Apps for Education
    • Gmail (Internal Only) 6-12
    • Google Apps (Internal Only) 3-12
  • Technology Integration Coach at Each School

Our Vision (1-3 years)

  • Ubiquitous access to technology resources for all students
    • K-5
    • 6-8
    • 9-12
  • Increased Bandwidth to stay ahead of need
  • Digital Textbooks
    • Miller-Levine Biology Example
  • Hybrid Professional Development
  • Replacement of Projector/IWB with Television/Wireless Projection
  • Managed Services for all printing - reduce paper and consumables

  • Factors for evolution of classroom landscape
    • Common Core Curricular Alignment
    • SBAC Assessments online starting 2014-15
    • Teacher skill levels
    • Budget constraints
  • Outcomes
    • Flexible design
      • Within the 5 year refresh, seek opportunities to increase flexibility
        • Desktops > Laptops
        • Wired > Wireless
        • 2:1 > 1:1 or greater
        • Local resources > Cloud Resources

  • Example
    • Current Intermediate Classrooms
      • 2:1 desktop to student
      • Windows 7 OS
      • Teacher workstation wired to projector and interactive whiteboard
      • Eleven computer tables tethered to either wall outlets or poles with electric and data
    • Proposed Intermediate Classroom Refresh
      • 1:1 classroom-based laptops
      • Teacher workstation connected to projector
      • Ipad to remote laptop and provide interactivity (Splashtop Whiteboard app)
      • Windows 7 OS, but Windows 8 ready
      • Wireless technology in projector, for wireless streaming of teacher/student workstations
      • Flexible seating

  • Breadth of Professional Development
    • New Equipment
    • Curriculum design and alignment to CCSS
    • Dynamic grade reporting with standards-based principles

Factors for classroom landscape

  • Internet access – T1 to 100Mbps
  • Visual display – Projectors on carts to Wireless LED TVs
  • Budget – Capital expenses to dedicated budget
  • Devices – Windows netbooks to Chromebooks
  • Uniformity – At least 4 different setups to 2 (TV and Smartboard)

Guiding principles

  • “Fundamental 5” and Brain-based Learning inform curriculum delivery and classroom layout
  • Development first, then devices
  • Tools meet curriculum requirements rather than curriculum matching the tool

Talon Technology Deployment Plan

  • Google Apps for Education and focus on platform-agnostic technologies
  • BYOD is an option for all students, according to their learning styles and teacher goals
  • Four-stage development plan
    • Introduction to multiple web-based learning technologies (Spring and Summer 2013)
    • Inservice on the SAMR framework and teacher-submitted evidences of technology integration (Fall 2013)
    • Introduction to Blended Learning and incorporating Schoology LMS (Spring 2014)
    • Curriculum-specific Curriculum Development for Chosen Devices (Summer 2014)
  • Devices selected by department requirements

Current Situation

  • 2:1 or less Student:Computer ratio

– includes desktop computers and extendable computing terminals

  • Interactive whiteboards in all instructional areas
  • Portable computer for every teacher
  • 100% wireless coverage
  • Access to networked printing
  • Student Response systems in appropriate curricular areas. Moving towards online assessments
  • Google Apps for Education to begin Fall, 2014
  • BYOD in place at all levels
important design factors student centered
Important Design Factors (Student-Centered)
  • What learning is to occur?
  • What will students be doing? (collaboration, presentation, etc.)
  • What “learning habits” do we want to develop and reinforce? (tech skills, critical-thinking, collaborative tendencies, content knowledge)
  • What tools will be needed?
  • How will the technology be blended into the instruction? (blend rotation, flex blend, etc.)
  • Have teachers “design” their classrooms for digital learning
    • Allow for the room to be “interactive”.
    • Decide what applications and tools expand the walls of the ordinary classroom.
    • Identify the student needs.
    • Identify instructional strategies that allow for more student-centered learning.
    • Purge 20th Century objects.
