The State of Technology

at Bonham Middle School

2010-2011

State of Technology – Bonham Middle School – 2010-2011

slide3

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.

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).

slide5

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.

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.

slide10

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.

slide11

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.

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

slide13

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).

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.
