textbook inventory
Textbook Inventory

The direct quote from the contracting team…“Des Moines Public School buildings were the most organized we have seen to date. Buildings did an excellent job in setup and staging of books which made our work extremely efficient.”

In total the contracting team inventoried 55 buildings in 11 days, bar coding an estimated 160,000 textbooks. The success of this grand project is testament to all of your hard work.

what is the kite project
What is the KITE project?
  • The KITE project is designed to develop technology skills in our teaching force.
  • Uses “gamification” and incentives as a way to increase staff interest and completion.
  • Provides a formalized and consistent training platform to deliver technology education straight from the technology department to the teacher.
why do we need the kite project
Why do we need the KITE project?
  • Last year’s Customer Service Desk (CSD, x8161) data from only the 1st semester:
  • 2,239 calls regarding passwords/logging in
  • 922 calls regarding printers/copiers
  • 464 calls regarding email
  • 361 calls regarding AV equipment
  • 2,678 calls that ended with reimaging
  • 610 calls regarding internet connectivity (wireless)
so what is the solution
So what is the solution?
  • Flight School: Eleven basic technology concepts that every employee needs to function effectively within DMPS.
  • This module is designed with the new teacher in mind, but will be beneficial for everyone in the district.
  • Hardware introduction, passwords & logins, email, printing, how to get help
what s next
What’s next?
  • The KITE projects ultimate goal is to infuse technology throughout instruction to allow for optimal use of teacher time while creating engaging and effective instruction.
  • The CUTEE project from last year is still operational.
  • As teachers progress through the levels of the KITE project, they will be exposed to various technologies that they currently have access to.
  • Teachers will be able to determine their own learning path to maximize engagement.
what s next1
What’s next?
  • Future modules
    • iPad basics, intermediate, advanced
    • District common software (SMI, SRI, ThinkCentral)
    • Infinite Campus
    • Hardware (AV, InFocus, Document Cameras)
    • Microsoft Office
    • Interactive Whiteboards

Where do we currently stand?
  • Production of content is on going.
    • Plan to have 4 modules ready for the first day of teacher contracts.
    • Will have cleaned up “Flight School” prior to contract days.
  • Review of pilot groups feedback is taking place and being considered.
  • Working with Technology to create easier access to content.
where do we currently stand1
Where do we currently stand?
  • Gathering information from all members to meet their technology needs.
  • Maintaining the focus of technology integration.
    • Technology should not stand alone
  • It’s not about what the piece of technology is, it’s about what you’re doing with it. (Or not doing with it.)
