  1. Blackout Slide State of Technology – Bonham Middle School – 2010-2011

  2. The State of Technology at Bonham Middle School 2010-2011 State of Technology – Bonham Middle School – 2010-2011

  3. The Challenges - Economics 70%+ of student body on Free-Reduced Lunch status. (TEA AEIS 2009), (Vockley-Vockley-Lang, 2007). Economic hardship makes technology tools like computers luxury items for those in need. State of Technology – Bonham Middle School – 2010-2011

  4. The Challenges – Teacher Training < 50% had adequate training in instructionaluse of technology tools. Yet, >85% have received training in using technology tools for administrative tasks.(Davis, 2008) At least 1/3 of any technology budget should be devoted to training in how to use the technology tools efficiently and effectively. (Wilson & Hash, 2003). State of Technology – Bonham Middle School – 2010-2011

  5. The Challenges – Technology Gaps Students Teachers Haves < 30% < 5 yrs. Experience more likely to have personal tech tools Have-nots 70% + Veterans with 20+ years of experience less likely to have personal tech tools So the causes may be: Economic resources may be root cause of technology “gap”. Teachers’ gap more due to reluctance to change and lack of training. State of Technology – Bonham Middle School – 2010-2011

  6. The Successes Infrastructure 32 miles of single mode fiber Gigabit Ethernet to all closets 100 Mbit switched to all devices IP Telephones in all rooms Secure wireless overlay in work State of Technology – Bonham Middle School – 2010-2011

  7. The Successes Application Investments • Home use licensed applications • Microsoft Office 2007 • Available via the ‘Net 24/7 • Aesop • C-Scope • Eduphoria • Gradespeed • School Fusion • Study Island (student practice) State of Technology – Bonham Middle School – 2010-2011

  8. The Successes Training IC3 Intel TEACH Program Microsoft Applications School Fusion Thinking Maps State of Technology – Bonham Middle School – 2010-2011

  9. Tomorrow’s Opportunities Bridging the “Gaps” • Some change agents for the needed “gap bridging.” • Make tech learning teams to support and encourage reluctant learners. • Incentives for training participants particularly the reluctant veterans. • Capital infusion through grant applications and other opportunities should be considered. State of Technology – Bonham Middle School – 2010-2011

  10. Tomorrow’s Opportunities Tech Equity for all • Continue with incentives and teaming to build discrete learning groups. • Collaborate between groups on common needs – lesson plans, unit plans, curriculum pacing, etc. • Use Web 2.0 applets to encourage the collaboration and discussion. State of Technology – Bonham Middle School – 2010-2011

  11. Tomorrow’s Opportunities Searching for training & money • Collaborative learning community – the way to set things up is to build a collaborative learning community. • Grantsmanship cadre – team to be built for grantwriting as part of their assigned duties. • Mentorship cadre – team built to facilitate the on-going training efforts for the community. State of Technology – Bonham Middle School – 2010-2011

  12. The Role of an MTT Mission Statement As an MTT serving at Bonham Middle School, it is my mission to: Facilitate the empowerment of all stakeholders in Bonham Middle School’s PLC (professional learning community) to more fully integrate existing and future technologies as tools designed to provide for our students’ success as participating members in our 21st century society. State of Technology – Bonham Middle School – 2010-2011

  13. The Role of an MTT How to Accomplish the Mission? • Foster collaboration as a pliant, dynamic system. • Catalyze the mentorship cadre as we work toward a 100% technology integrated campus. • Actively study how to best do grants, build a grantsmanship team (members with experience, members with vision, members who want to work to get the resources we need to soar). State of Technology – Bonham Middle School – 2010-2011

  14. The Role of an MTT Mission Fulfilled • The mission will, in reality, probably never be completely fulfilled, but: • The change will be observable and measurable. • The students will respond with renewed engagement and interest. • The community will positively react to the changes and they will support our efforts.
