21 st Century Learning, Future Ready Students, and the IMPACT Vision
Fundamental Educational Change 21 st Century Learning –New ways to learn (touching, synthesis, collaboration) –New core skills (ICT, self direction & risk taking) –New channels of learning (virtual, content) –Life long learning (job churn) –Global Awareness & Literacy (new job and language skills), P. (2006) Technology Services Area Meeting, NCDPI. July 19, 2006..
Fundamental Educational Change 21 st Century Teaching –New ways to teach (authentic task assignments, collaboration) –New core skills (Teacher as facilitator) –New channels of learning (virtual, content) –Life long learning (preparation) –Global Economy (identify evolving new job skills) Asmar, P. (2006) Technology Services Area Meeting, NCDPI. July 19, 2006..
IMPACT Data Math The odds that IMPACT students would go from non-passing to passing status over the three years were 42% higher than that for comparison students.
IMPACT students caught up within one year Effect significant at p<. 0001, controlling for grade, race, exceptionality, Free/reduced lunch, sex, absenteeism
IMPACT Data Reading When looking at change in passing status, the odds that IMPACT students would increase from failing to passing over the four years were 55% higher than the odds for comparison students. When looking at Year 01 to 03 with the larger sample, the odds were 43% higher for IMPACT students.
Reading Growth 2003-2005, by Grade EOG growth from baseline to Year 2 Effect significant at p<. 05, controlling for free/reduced lunch, race, exceptionality, sex, absenteeism, parent education
IMPACT Data Teacher Retention The odds of IMPACT teachers being retained for these three years were 65% higher than for comparison school teachers once the variable of years in teaching was controlled.
Teacher Retention, by Type, Year 1-Year 3 CategoryComparisonIMPACT Administrators58.8%76.5% Classroom teachers69.3%77.0%* Special subjects teachers76.8%62.5% Note: * significant at p <.05
Teacher Retention, By Years of Experience, Year 1-Year 3 Note: Years in the profession was significant (Odds Ratio = 1.18, p <.03), and IMPACT was a near- significant trend (Odds Ratio = 1.52, p <.07).
IMPACT Data Technology Use Relative to comparison students, a higher percentage of IMPACT students reported using computers in core subject areas, for conducting research, for word processing, and for presentations; these differences were highly significant across all four areas.
Student Use of Computers in Grades 3-5, 2004-05
