Slide 3

This is not my project. I was contacted by Keven Rinaman from Ohio. She is a technology director for Calvert Catholic Elementary School. The idea is to have schools give other schools challenges to complete for Lent such as writing cards to veterans or collecting food for a pantry.

Slide 4

Digital Learning Day is February 23rd. It is a great day week to try something that you’ve been wanting to try with teachers or students. You can do it any day and talk about the “official day” too. You can go to the website to learn more.

Slide 5

A MOOC is a Massive Open Online Course. This is free and is sponsored by the Friday Institute at North Carolina State University. Over the course of six weeks you will read and watch videos. You will collaborate with other educators on discussion boards. You will try different types of websites to showcase your learning and create a personal coaching plan. It is available to any teacher. They can earn 20 certificate hours. I participated in this MOOC about four or five years ago. It was very good, but I did not try to earn the certificate hours so I couldn’t help with that piece.

Slide 6

One of the major benefits of coming to these technology integration sessions is getting to meet other teachers who are helping their students and teachers. People share what is working at their schools and ask questions about issues that they could use help with. We’re going to go around the room and share who your name, what you do in the school, and one procedure you have in your class that makes your life easier with your students in class.

Slide 7

Take out your sample word processing documents.

Slide 8

Have a conversation with the person next to you about common misconceptions students have with word processing.

Slide 9

If you use Word, Open Office or other word processors (not Google Docs) you can show hidden marks with the backwards P (paragraph symbol). You, and students, can see where they have pressed the spacebar, return, and tab key.

Slide 10

What are some common misconceptions? Spaces in inappropriate places such as the spaces before Ann Oro. Missing spaces after punctuation marks - see the date on the slide Using space instead of tab to align words such as the date and January Meeting. Using multiple tabs instead of setting one tab. Using space or tab to center words. Starting a paragraph with spaces. Two spaces after a period Uppercase letters in used inappropriately - such as Your Multiple punctuation marks - such as !!!!!

Slide 11

Big spaces as an indent instead of adjusting it on the ruler line. Spaces before and after punctuation marks. Not using word wrap and instead pressing return at the end of each line.

Slide 12

Double spacing by pressing return twice

Slide 13

Who is using, or has teachers using, Plickers? What is good or bad in your experience with Plickers.

Slide 14

Get and talk about feedback from the group.

Slide 15

Get and talk about feedback from the group.

Slide 16

Open your Google Classroom assignment #012 - Gallery Walk. #012 - All WP Skills are all the technology word processing skills for K-8 in the technology curriculum maps. Anyone can view that file. #012 - Gallery Walk contains the file that I have given you as a handout. Do not open the Gallery Walk link now. We will watch it as a group. The spreadsheet is open for all to edit so you can add more rubric entries for the group to share.

Slide 21

This is what I have learned about the state of technology plans in the elementary schools across the Archdiocese of Newark.

Slide 22

Plans have evolved. 10 or 15 years ago it was all about equipment and students passively using technology. About 5 years ago it was more about mobile devices coming into schools, the beginnings of supporting students with the adaptive use of technology, getting students to create stand alone word processing and presentation files, and teachers understanding how to create PowerPoints to show students. The focus is now on research-based, technology-infused lessons with teachers focusing on student learning that supports content through communication, collaboration, and connecting experts with the classroom.

Slide 23

Last year we looked at the National Education Technology Plan and saw how they talked about the active use of technology by students. In order for students to be the center of learning, schools need the infrastructure to support the devices and learning.

Slide 24

Future Ready is an organization who helps schools think about how to personal student learning through technology. It is a cycle of vision, planning, implementation, assessing where you are, refining the plan and continuing through collaborative leadership across the school.

Slide 25

Future Ready offers a free district assessment. For the purposes of our schools, each of you is a district. You can receive a nice report showing where your strengths or weaknesses are.

Slide 26

In the same way we worked on the technology curriculum map, you are going to work on what all schools must have in a school technology plan. Open #011 - School Technology Plans in Google Classroom. I have a file everyone can edit called #11 2017-2020 Tech Plan Outline-Shared with information I found on the NJ State Department of Education website. I have already edited it somewhat. Feel free to add comments and make changes that we will all see. I want everyone to now open #11 2017-2020 Individual Plan. You will all have a blank that you can fill out as we work. You can share it at your school. Even if you have an existing plan, add what you might be missing here as an outline for when you update your plan. Machine Aging will be talked about later.

Slide 27

There are eight major components that everyone should have. This shows when we will work on the concept over the next three workshops.

Slide 28

What do you think key items are? It was felt the principal’s email address should be included.

Slide 29

The plan should be three years in length. If you only have a one year plan...it is better than no plan. It should be three years. A few schools have 5 year plans. Technology changes so fast that a five year plan is on the long side...unless you are really making significant changes.

Slide 30

Some schools have a plan written by a tech teacher and the principal approves it. Again, it’s better than no plan.

Slide 31

The school technology integration specialist(s) should be on the team. If the tech integration specialist is not the computer teacher, the technology instructor(s)/teacher(s) should be included as well. You should have a classroom teacher or two involved. They can bring perspectives that other miss such as the fact that each classroom only has two power outlets or the fifth grade can’t get Internet access. You might want a student or two involved. A parent or two should also at least review the plan. They may make a great connect from the Home and School Association or School Board so that when funds are raised they know what the school is aiming to do.

Slide 32

The school’s philosophy and mission should drive everything. Some schools have a technology philosophy and/or mission statement. You do not need a technology philosophy or mission, but if you have one keep it. Does your plan include the school philosophy/mission? It should drive your technology plan.

Slide 33

You might think of it as an executive summary. The stakeholders should be thinking about where the school is now and what success will look like/feel like in three years.

Slide 34

Three short sentences will state where your school has been in the recent past with technology. Three short sentences will give big strokes on where your school wants to go. Longer section outlining, by grade, the successes...both by the regular classroom teacher and within technology class.

Slide 35

If you have been filling out the annual technology survey, you are most of the way to including an inventory of equipment in your technology plan. You should also know where equipment is across the school and about how old it is.

Slide 36

Go to drive.google.com and click “Shared with me”. You will find a file with the last three years of tech survey answers that have been given to me. If you are a CUSP school you will also have a file that ends with the words Machine Aging that includes the data I collected when I visited you last May. For the non-CUSP schools, you can open the Machine Aging file in Google Classroom and save your own copy. Explain what is in the file and how it works.

Slide 37

In February we will begin thinking about Goals and Strategies in a school technology plan.

Slide 38

Remember, we always talk about the fact that student learning comes first. You should be concentrating on the content and skills in the technology curriculum maps. As you are planning for the next three years, please don’t feel like you are the only school that does not have a makerspace or 3d printer and that you should be making those your goals. These are new concepts that very few schools are piloting. Only a couple of schools have what they believe is a makerspace and that word means so many different things to everyone. Fewer than 10 schools have a 3D printer and they spend a good bit of time and effort dealing with clogs. About a third of the schools have robots of some type. I think this comes out of the coding work students are doing and robots become an interesting extension.

Slide 39

In the October survey the top five content areas that people said they need more assistance with are programming, Internet research, digital citizenship/Internet safety, technology as a communication/collaboration tool, and guided Internet usage. In January we had the Hour of Code workshop so I think it helped many who were struggling. In November, I met with the new technology integration specialists and we worked on these concepts from 1st-8th grade. The other three topics are so big, I need more feedback on where you need support.

Slide 40

Please answer these 5 questions and tell me where you feel you need support, specifically, AND where you feel confident. If you don’t feel that you need support just saying “I’m doing fine”.
