2 Bond 1 Elementary Model Technology School 1 Middle School Model Technology School Issues / Concerns with Bond Statement Campus selection Professional Development Equitability Component selection Implementation Timeline

3 3 Model Technology K-12 School 4 classrooms on each of 26 campuses Increase active engagement in the learning environment through positive connections to the instruction. 2 Issues / Concerns Component Selection Professional Development for Instructional Technology Professional Development for Curriculum Coordinators Just-in-time Professional Development for selected staff Face-2-Face Professional Development for selected staff Continuing Professional Development Model Staff selection Evaluation

4 4 Model Technology Classroom Goal Increase active engagement in the learning environment through positive connections to the instruction. 2 Component Selection Incorporate 21st century skill use by teachers and students Increase student engagement and interaction Quick monitoring of student understanding and learning Critical thinking skills enhanced and applied by students

5 5 Model Technology Classroom Goal Increase active engagement in the learning environment through positive connections to the instruction. Promethean Interactive Whiteboard Multimedia Document Camera ActivSlate ActivExpression 2 Components Selected

6 3 Professional Learning Community Team Development Instructional Technology Integration Staff ActivInstructor Course All Curriculum Coordinators Curriculum Designer Course Cohort Leadership Team -Provided an ongoing, focused professional learning community

7 Initial Preparation 90 minute on-line course Acquainted pilot participants with software Professional Learning Model Classroom Pilot Readiness 3 hour course Delivered end of day (Principals provided coverage for last 1 hour of instructional day) Focused on use of technology tools Software application basics Post-Installation 3 hour course Delivered end of day (Principals provided coverage for last 1 hour of instructional day) Software application beyond basics Prepared Flipchart for the next curriculum bundle 5

8 Monthly Cohorts Professional Learning Model Tandem leadership support by: Curriculum Coordinator -Content Expert Instructional Technologist -Skill/Integration Expert Focus On-going collaborative learning and sharing Created flipcharts connected to curriculum Repository = 900+ Formed by grade level or subject area “I really didn’t think that meeting together was necessary, but now I look forward to working within my Cohort. Are we really not meeting in May?” 6

9 9 3 Ratings Personal Computer Use Current Instructional Practices Current Integration of Technology into Curriculum 150 Word Essay How would you use the model technology classroom to ensure “higher student performance and deeper engagement in academic, real world endeavors?” 7 Understandings and Agreements Scoring and Selection Application scored by Curriculum Coordinators using rubric Applicants ranked and submitted to Principal Applicants notified of selection and training schedule 2 Pilot Application / Selection Summary

10 10 Component Installation Professional Development schedule and delivery drove the installation schedule Partner meeting ensured everyone understood purpose behind the schedule 90% successful One campus per evening -(Pilots were told to leave building) Project Manager and IT Coordinator on campus following morning

11 Evaluation Instrument Teaching Styles Inventory Collection occurred prior to Installation / Professional Development - 41 statements - 7 point Likert Scale response– Strongly Disagree to Strongly Agree - Initial baseline determined - Indicated strong connection to teacher directed practices Dominant Approach - Direct Teach - Overheads - Teacher focused Expert - Transmits information Formal Authority - Provides structure for learning Personal Model - Teaches by example 8

12 Mid-Pilot – 9 months following installation - Indicated change and growth in instructional practice - Anecdotal data informs affect on student engagement Teaching Styles Inventory More Dominant - Student centered - Learner engagement - Higher level thinking Personal Model - Teaches by example Facilitator - Consults, questions, encourages Delegator - Promotes student autonomy and self learning “98% of teachers experienced greater student engagement in the classroom.” 9

13 ActivArena and ActivInspire Update Boards and Software Dual pen functionality Teacher proximity control with pen ActivInspire integrates all components Staffing Budget Cuts = Larger cohorts Campus Purchases Mid-Pilot Challenges 14 Grants and ARRA Replication Fidelity

14 Target Tech in Texas (T3) Grant Grant written using parts of the PISD Pilot Technology Classroom Model Regional Collaborative 2 Charter Schools Kipp Austin Public Schools UT Charter Elementary School 5 Region XIII Districts Pflugerville ISD – Fiscal Agent Round Rock ISD Leander ISD Bastrop ISD San Marcos CISD July 2010 Award Overall - $965, Pflugerville - $211, Target Grantees 6 Pflugerville Elementary Campuses; 2 MS Campuses Grades 3-6 Bi-Lingual / ESL / ELL learners / MS Math 12

15 ARRA – Title 1 $115, earmarked for Model Technology Classrooms 8 Campuses Equitable Varying number of classrooms per campus July Bond – Projectors for K - 8 District Wide Middle School and Elementary Short throw projectors Provides possible bridge to further implementation 13

16 Attrition due to: Reassignments within District Instructional Coaching TAP Master and Mentors Grade Level Changes Left District Continuing-Pilot Challenges 14 Reassignment of Classroom Application Process v assignment Cohort Challenges Replication of all processes Technical Support Administrator Communication

17 SSI Summer School Teacher Effectiveness = Student Achievement Targeted 5 th grade Math 12 days with Model Technology Pilot teacher and tools All tested students met TAKS Math standard Raw score average gain 73 “The board has provided more creative and interactive ways to teach concepts…. I have found that student scores have consistently remained higher this year on assessments than in previous years when teaching the same subject matter.” 11 Pilot Celebrations

18 Marzano Study Participation Teacher Effectiveness = Student Achievement Experience – > 10 years Confidence in their ability Technology tools in place > 2 years Classroom use = 75-80% Average gain of 17 percentile points across all groups Model Technology Showcase May campuses 12 Classrooms Community attendance Community Impact reporting Legislator attendance during session “My students have been 200 percent engaged since the ActivBoard was installed in my room!” 10

19 “Students are more willing to be involved in classroom discussions, more willing to go in front of the class and explain the method they used to solve a problem and more willing in general to participate in class.” “The majority of my ESL students as well as intervention students need more visual aids and the board really helps with that. I am able to grab a picture and duplicate to reiterate a math problem or create a backdrop for a story they're engaged in, as well as so much more.” 15 “Since I have received my Promethean equipment my students have a completely different attitude and outlook toward mathematics.”

20 3 “My kids are TERRIFIED of walking into a classroom without one! The board has truly been the wave for learning this year.”
