This assignment was very interesting in that it helped to quantify some of my thoughts about the state of technology at our school. The Survey asks questions about a variety areas, and gives a grade of emergent, islands, integrated, or intelligent. Before doing the survey, I thought that the result would be Islands. The survey confirmed this for me. Embedded below is my analysis, as well as the survey sheet.
I think that completing this survey will help me better articulate some of the needs that our school faces, and hopefully allow us to move along the technology spectrum.
I chose the following AECT standards:
4.2 Resource Management because I needed to examine a variety of school resources including personnel, budget, curriculum and facilities.
5.1 Problem Analysis because I needed to collect, analyze, and interpret data on a school’s use of technology.
5.2 Criterion-Referenced Measurement because I used a specific survey instrument to evaluate the school’s technology climate.
5.3 Formative and Summative Evaluation because I gathered information to help inform decision process on technology.
5.4 Long-Range Planning because this asignment required looking at the long term five year strategic plan.
