3 Large Urban School District of 97,915 students More than 54.9% of JCPS students receive free or reduced price lunches 83% of the teachers have a Masters Degree or Higher Student to Computer ratio – 4.25:1 CES 10/2010

4 Positive: Islands of technology excellence in many schools One-to-One Pilot started JCPSeSchool – Districts virtual school JCPS Online – District-wide Learning Management System Online technology assessment system – CASA (Computer Application Skills Assessment) CSILE – Knowledge Forum in 17 schools Data Warehouse CES 10/2010

5 Computers being under utilized in many schools. School observation process indicated that very few teachers (10% to 15%) were using technology for teaching. Many teachers didnt have a workstation or the workstation was the oldest machine in the classroom. The Principals survey indicated that technology was the least beneficial of expenditures for improving instruction. CES 10/2010


7 $30 million spent on computer technology... not helping students learn CES 10/2010

8 Dedicated computer for the teacher Replace the standard overhead projector with computer as the primary instructional tool Train teachers how to embed technology into their curriculum CES 10/2010

9 Desktop PC Was approximately $200 less at the time of purchase. Stationary system Because of lack of quality systems for students, teachers tended to share their computers with their students Laptop Portable for teachers to take home to get comfortable The unit would not be shared with the students How could we afford this? How could we not afford to purchase these? CES 10/2010

10 Similar laptop capabilities. Tablet could be used with the digital projector with the stylus as an interactive whiteboard. Tablets were about $300 more. Fewer vendors had the convertible tablets. CES 10/2010

11 Require relatively little training Support richer data entry – Digital pen allows for more intuitive input More productive Potentially less obtrusive More accessible More precise Smaller Mobile CES 10/2010

12 The Tablet PC has features that are not available when using an overhead projector or standard PC. Teachers can use the inking features to highlight specific details within an instructional presentation, word processing document, or spreadsheet to enhance and strengthen the learning process. CES 10/2010

13 Digital projector – effective instructional use Training –incorporating tablet into instruction Embedded PD – applications and content area specific CES 10/2010


15 Designed to increase the integration of technology into classroom instruction by providing each teacher with: Tablet PC Digital Projector Professional Development Classroom Coaching CES 10/2010

16 Increase teachers technology proficiency Provide new and improved means of instructional delivery Boost student achievement through more engaging classroom instruction CES 10/2010

20 Training Evaluation Comments

21 This is an excellent tool... I cannot wait to use this with students! CES 10/2010

22 This is totally awesome! CES 10/2010

23 Finally something that replaces my overhead projector and is actually technology based. CES 10/2010

24 I am excited to get to use this laptop... CES 10/2010

25 Every teacher in the system needs this computer! CES 10/2010

26 Target math teachers in middle school and 5 th grade (300+ teachers) Summer PD and school based coaching Education Technology Teachers worked with classroom teachers CES 10/2010

27 The change begins… CES 10/2010

28 Overheads pushed to the corner Stylus becomes more important than chalk Daily notes archived instead of existing in the moment Archived notes available to students in printed or electronic format CES 10/2010


30 Over 700 teachers from every school in the district received the technology Focused on high school math, middle and elementary science Summer PD was changed from 12 hours to 6 hours School based PD continued with the Education Technology Teachers working with classroom teachers Trained 154 School Technology Coordinators (STC) during the year for better support for Year 3 Collegial support from Year 1 Math teachers CES 10/2010

31 The Year 1 Middle school math teachers were observed using technology in 91% of their classrooms. High school math teachers were as successful as the middle school math teachers. More teachers requested the technology for their grade or subject area. Continued strong support from the Assistant Superintendents and Principals. Teacher enrollment increased for summer technology classes. CES 10/2010

32 Approximately 2,300 teachers were trained in the summer Over 1,100 elementary teachers Over 1,200 middle and high school teachers Six hour PD sessions were scheduled to handle up to 50 teachers per day. ETTs continue to provide instructional support to classroom teachers STCs provide technical support Collegial support was present at every school Enlisted support from district instructional coaches Approximately 400 additional teachers were trained during the school year. CES 10/2010

33 All schools participated. Remaining teachers eagerly anticipated the technology for their grade or subject area. Enrollment for summer technology classes increased with each year of TIP implementation. Project success exceeds original expectations! CES 10/2010

34 In the first three years of TIP we were able to train over 3,500 teachers in all disciplines (i.e., math, sciences, language arts, arts and humanities, and social studies) and grade levels – 300+ teachers 2006 – 700 teachers plus 154 STCs 2007 –2,300 teachers plus approximately 400 additional teachers during the year Summer ,918 additional teachers received this training. Finished the project for all 5,700 teachers two years earlier than projected. CES 10/2010

35 Observations indicate increased student engagement in the classroom, because teachers used many resources (i.e., film clips, photos, Web sites) to command their attention. Teachers inking on electronic versions of curricular materials allow students to closely follow instruction. Teachers invite the students to write on the tablet when answering questions which adds another dimension of excitement and engagement for students. CES 10/2010

36 The kids love to do problems on the Tablet! And….of course, every day I have to match the Journal page and pen color with my outfit. Sharon Mudd, JCTMS CES 10/2010

37 Students have access to more information Information and notes are more organized for presentation, visually and exciting More interactions with students and teachers surrounding technology Teachers sharing resources theyve created Builds a community in the room, students want to teach and participate CES 10/2010

38 Lessons are more systemic and planned Tablet allows for more creative teaching Technology has become important to teachers As teachers comfort level increased, a more collaborative classroom environment evolved Collegial support increases Greater participation in additional technology based PD Instruction becomes more engaging while addressing diverse learner styles TIP assists teachers in meeting technology goals and standards CES 10/2010

39 A teacher has the ability to annotate, critique, and analyze student work using ink features for whole class instruction. Middle school math and science as well as other content area teachers have their curricular materials printed into Windows Journal which gives them the ability to write on the documents when reviewing with students. They have the ability to save the completed work to review again as well as print out materials for students who are absent and miss instruction. CES 10/2010


41 The best thing is being able to scan worksheets/ lab sheets or samples and actually be able to draw directly on the Tablet. This really helps my kids. Then I save many of the files and print them for absent students or for my ECE collaboration teacher so they can review with ECE students for extra help. Robi Schultz, Iroquois Middle School CES 10/2010

42 I am able to save any annotations I make on our notes for the day and post them online for absent students to have a copy. Since many classes are at different levels my annotations vary, thus I have different notes posted online. It saves the hassle of students having to rely on another student for notes. Lacey Brown Eckels, Farnsley Middle School CES 10/2010
