EXECUTIVE SUMMARY


All educators, regardless of their prior
experience with technology tools an training, have

the ability to improve student

achievement. We will become knowledgeable and proficient with appropriate use of educational technology tools available
and expand on our current abilities to increase studen
t proficiency and skill development. This will be realized through training
for the educational staff incorporating technology into lesson planning, and implementing new methods and supportive
materials for learning. To accomplish this vision, three thin
gs are necessary: financial support, administrative direction, and a
staff willingness to modernize techniques for teaching in a technological society. With these accomplishments, technology wi
ll
be incorporated in all classrooms, in order to meet and wi
ll achieve the Camden City District Educational technology Vision
along with the New Jersey Educational Technology Vision and Benchmarks as aligned with the New Jersey Core Curriculum
Standards.

All t
eacher
s

use
computers

when

lesson planning and grade kee
ping. Teachers enter plans via
www.oncoursesystems.com

aligning
objectives to
NJCCS standards
. Grading takes place with the assistance of

a district
wide mandated gradebook, GENESIS.

Students use MS Office Suite
throughout the building to

design presentations
,

documents
, databases, and workbooks.

Needed Inventory

The technology inventory needed to improve student academic achievement include
s
a
need to develop electronic
portfolios, which serve two purposes. The
first

is a learning
portfolio
, which will occur on an ongoing basis supporting
student

development and

the second, is an assessment portfolio, for self reflection and evaluation of students.

Reflection MUST be
part of the electronic (digital) portfolio. A pie
ce of student work, brief explanatory reflection of a piece of work in a portfolio,
and a reflection by the student and a validation by the teacher’s evaluation. Collaboration, publishing, storytelling,
linking/thinking, and archiving will allow for stude
nt academic success. MS Office software will allow for collecting, selecting,
reflecting, directing, and celebrating student work.

All machines purchased in the future should have an OS of Windows XP
or better.

The technology inventory needed to improve
teacher productivity include
Personal Digital Assistants
(PDAs) for
teachers
and

flash drives for
upper grade students,

along with the software to manage and crea
te project based learning
activities
that
improve student academic achievement.
Laptop
computers (
IPAD2, or
Windows

7
) to include
MS Office Suite
on every machine,
along with
PDF
,
HTML
, and AV

editing software

must

be purchased as well
.
Hardware should include
external hard drives for each classroom and digital video cameras.
Teachers


dai
ly online routines
will
be more productive

by
having machines for home use.
Wireless capabilities and external hard drives is in need of consideration for backups.


Software

Professional Development Activities

Technology can enhance the achievement of all students, increase families’ involvement in their children’s
schooling, improve teachers’ skills and knowledge, and improve school administration and management. To insure that
Davis School receives the benefit
s of technology and becomes a technology rich school funding for staff development is
critical.

Teachers and support staff are key to the full utilization of technology in the educational process. Teachers
influence the delivery of curriculum and form exp
eriences to meet the needs of their students. Therefore, teacher training on
all aspects of technology is critical to the successful implementation of technology into the curriculum. The Technology Task

Force will provide support and staff development oppo
rtunities to assist all of its members. It is our goal that the staffs of
Davis School become fully competent with technology to expand the learning opportunities for our students.

The Technology Task Force will keep the staff aware of the many courses be
ing offered through the Camden
County ETTC. These courses will provide our teachers and support staff with the skills necessary to assist their students
with online projects that support the Core Curriculum Content Standards

Davis School has been providi
ng ongoing technology training to its staff members. There are classes held
during
our 9
th

period, from 3:05
-
3:30

and all day Tuesdays

that provide teachers with the knowledge of integrating technology into
the curriculum. The School Technology Team will help the staff of Davis School realize the importance of developing the
technological skills needed to teach in today’s classrooms. In
order for our teachers to change instructional practices our
staff development will include training and ongoing support. This will be done at the district level as well as on site train
ing.
We will accomplish this by developing a site staff development pl
an included herein.


Our plan will include developing the staff’s ability to:

Teachers have access to educational technology in their instructional areas by utilizing the Internet to search
and communicate throughout the distri
ct and around the world. Local Area Network (LANS) and a Wide Area
Network (WANS) are available in the building for accessing to Email and software. LCD projectors and digital
cameras are also available during instructional time. By having access to edu
cational technology equipment
and supplies, teachers can incorporate various activities into their lesson plans and follow through with additional
instructional activities by using the servers located in the building. By increasing usage of technology, te
achers
will achieve individual personal and professional growth, improve their technology development, and be able to
assist students in becoming real researchers.


Describe the professional development activities for teachers, administrators, and school l
ibrary media personnel
that include:

EVALUATION PLAN



The teachers will evaluate students routinely. This will be done through student
digital
portfolios, reports, projects,
rubrics
,

peer and self
-
evaluation, pre/post tests, and monitoring student’s successful online usage. The Administrator,
Technology Coordinator, Computer Teacher, and Math and Reading Coaches will conduct a quarterly report of the status of
technology integration
into the classroom. Administrators will review and revise technology needed to support the existing
and new District Initiative Programs
. A
ppropriate network and technical support and necessary equipment

will be provided
.
Sufficient computers will be pu
rchased for every classroom to meet the required one to
1:5 c
omputer/student ratios
, to
eventually meet a 1:1 ratio
. All requested technology purchasing must be approved through the Technology Department
Supervisors prior to submitting requested requisiti
on for purchase. Progress reports are to be submitted to the administrator
for evaluation as requested and teachers will electronically develop and standardize assessments. All Standard Operation
Procedures (SOP) will be reviewed and revised periodicall
y as necessary to maintain alignment to the Technology
Departm
ent and the NJCCS.

will be audited monthly and discussed at staff meetings). Attempts will be made to cross tabulate student
grades with technology infusion level based on the findings in the aforementioned audit of online resources. Students will b
e
assigned

a technology proficiency level and this in
-
house authentic assessment will be measured against the student’s
grade point average. This measure will be developed and revisited during the scope of this plan.
