Explore how you can use a visual tool to interpret your school’s technology integration audit data when creating a personalized tech PD plan for teachers. We'll share survey templates, PD plan templates, technology audit strategies and technology integration coaching models. Recommended by ISTE’s Innovative Learning Network
Purpose & objective
Increasingly school organizations are using data to improve, plan, and develop learning environments and curriculum. A technology integration audit can provide useful data to:
gauge effectiveness of current technology integration plans
determine areas of strength and areas for improvement
determine quality of student learning as evident in student artifacts
We will show how using visualization tools to examine the data provides an illuminating view of a wide set of information and can offer insight to areas of strength of a school’s technology integration plan as well as areas for improvement and growth. Measurement of student artifact data included artifact type, ISTE standard(s) evident, quality of rigor, and frequency of occurrence over time. We will show how our school has collect thousands of student artifacts over three years and evidence of growth and development across elementary, middle and secondary schools. Through this data collection we have created personalized technology professional development plans for each teacher so their areas for growth can be customized to their needs and interests. As well, we have curated a student artifact collection over three years that can be used as exemplars of technology-integrated student learning.
We will share the following resources and information:
