Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Session I The Characteristics of, and Planning for High-Quality Professional Development 3
4 Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Rationale New Ohio academic content standards Research shows that educational technology can help improve student achievement Research shows that educational technology can help improve student achievement We have hardware and software in the schools, but districts report many teachers are still not utilizing it or not using it to its full advantage We have hardware and software in the schools, but districts report many teachers are still not utilizing it or not using it to its full advantage
5 Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Rationale The module frameworks and TIPs were developed to address the professional development needs of schools and educators in the effective use of technology.
6 Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop TIPs Goals Provide tools and workshops to assist educational leaders in planning and delivering high-quality professional development in the integration and effective use of technology to enhance teaching and learning. To promote a flexible approach to customizing professional development to meet the needs of the district and/or school.
7 Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Workshop Standards The National Staff Development Council’s Standards http://www.nsdc.org The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) http://www.iste.org The Ohio Academic Content Standards http://www.ode.state.oh.us
8 Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Workshop Objectives Participants will... Discuss characteristics of effective professional development. Identify examples of literacy uses, adapting uses and transforming uses of technology. Explore tools and resources to help plan professional development that meets district needs in utilizing technology effectively.
9 Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Workshop Objectives Participants will... Examine integration and skill module frameworks and examples. Understand how to apply the framework to create integration and skill modules to meet district professional development needs.
10 Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Timeline 5 to 6 Hour Training May offer training in two half day sessions
11 Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Pre-Assessment Rate your knowledge of the following: characteristics of effective professional development six ISTE standards for teachers skill and integration modules how technology professional development is currently planned in your school/district Debriefing
12 Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop What does high-quality professional development look like? National Staff Development Council Standards “Characteristics of Effective Professional Development” from the National Partnership for Excellence and Accountability in Teaching
Effective Characteristics of High Quality Professional Development Implementation of High Quality Professional Development ContextProcessContent Built Around Ongoing Collaboration Developed to be Continuous and Reflective Focused on Student Achievement Planned Based on Student Data Designed to Promote Cultural Competency Supported by Skillful Leadership Designed and Planned with, by and for Educators Based on Research Aligned with Building and District Comprehensive Continuous Improvement Plan Evaluated from Multiple Perspectives Draft 4.13.04 13

16 Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Planning Professional Development Determine when and how the professional development could be provided in your district How do you provide job-embedded professional development? Information for job-embedded strategies is credited to Ellen Maddin, co-author of the Ohio LIT curriculum.

Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop What’s wrong with after-school workshops? Inadequate training facilities Artificial context Competing responsibilities Time of day Diverse needs of learners Practical logistics (number of teachers X hours of staff development / reasonable group size =??) Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC 18
Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop 5 Job-Embedded PD Models Shadowing One-on-one for One Rotating Topics Walk-in Clinic Student Exchange Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC 19
Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Shadowing Description: Technology leaders host teacher- learners in their classrooms. Benefits: Authentic context (computers AND students) Difficult to articulate skills and concepts become concrete Underscores the importance of new classroom dynamics in successful technology implementation Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC 20
Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Shadowing Learning Experiences: Establish a student- centered classroom Manage diverse classroom activity Make smooth transitions Introduce new software to students Organize materials and student work Keep track of student progress Redesign the physical layout of a classroom Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC 21
Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Preparing for Shadowing Decide who will be shadowed One sub for every four teachers Determine duration of visit and create a schedule Make it clear and easy for substitutes Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC 22
Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop One-on-one for One Description: One technology leader works with one teacher-learner for one hour. Benefits: Customized instruction (pace, content coverage, level of challenge are appropriate to learner needs) Reduced performance anxiety for tech leaders One-hour limit=reasonable amount of new material for learners Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC 23
Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Preparing for One 3 Hold a planning session Develop a schedule Publish the schedule at a staff meeting Arrange for substitutes Make it clear and easy for substitutes Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC 24
Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Rotating Topics Leader benefits: reduced prep time opportunity to sharpen skills Learner benefits: collegial environment, instruction geared toward skill level Best for in-service/early release days Description: 3 leaders work with 3 small groups in 3 rotating sessions Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC 25
Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Rotating Topics Options To accommodate 30 teacher-learners: 3 classrooms with 4-6 computers 2 mini labs (10 or more computers)/one classroom Computers on rolling carts--media center + 2 classrooms equipped with 4-5 Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC 26
Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Walk-in Clinic Description: Technology leaders take turns covering a walk-in clinic open to learners throughout the day for follow-up support, “quick questions”, skill review, sharing, and problem- solving. Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC 28
Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Walk-in Clinic Benefits relaxed environment only one sub needed to cover tech leaders short but relevant minimal investment of time for learners provides essential follow-up to more formal sessions Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC 29
Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Planning for a Walk-in Clinic Advertise! Pre-register Welcome “drop-ins” Set up a trouble- shooting area Prepare a simple activity Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC 30
Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Student Exchange Description: Students visit other classrooms to teach/coach peers or teachers Benefits: students become leaders the best way to learn something is to teach it to someone else Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC 31
Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Student Exchange Options Send your student “experts” to another class that needs them. Invite students from another class to join your class as you introduce new computer skills. Switch classes with another teacher. Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC 32
Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC Ohio SchoolNet TIPs Workshop Research Supports Job-Embedded Learning Teachers who integrate technology: Have access to computers in their classrooms. Are more likely to use learner-centered rather than teacher-centered approaches: projects/group-oriented activities inquiry/discovery-based/problem-solving modes student work is individualized/collaborative 33
Copyright, 2000 Ellen Maddin, Ed.D., HCESC Ohio SchoolNet TIPs\Workshop Research Supports Job-Embedded Learning Teachers who integrate technology: Work in schools that provide incentives for professional development: release time stipends/tuition support for summer institutes access to more computers and related resources Pisapia and Schlesinger (1993).
