Tech Integration
 We are still crafting our instructional vision for our school. We must solidify this vision before we can truly identify how technology will fit into our school.  The use of technology is currently limited in our school. Our instructional vision is solid, and we are ready to identify how blended/ personalized learning can improve outcomes for our students.  We have used technology in places - even across entire grade-levels - but are looking to amplify the impact school-wide.  Technology is purposefully integrated into every classroom in our school. We are looking for the next step that will improve upon our current use to increase our student outcomes even further. 
 













Priorities / Next Steps
  1.  Set your instructional vision! Without an idea of what you want your building to look like, you won't be able to identify how to properly leverage (and appropriately use) technology. As you set your instructional vision, you will be able to identify how technology can seamlessly integrate into instruction and impact student outcomes.
  2. Identify high-impact opportunities  Where can you get the most bang for your buck with tech? Digital formative assessment and tracking? Flipped INM videos? Choose one area where technology can have a profound, immediate impact and make that your one focus. We will pull from blended learning models and Alliance's High 5 signature practices.
  3. Set goals, identify metrics How will you know if your blended program is having success? Set tangible goals for the high-impact area you've chosen. Identify the specific metrics that will be used to consistently evaluate the success of your blended program.
  4. Identify the tools and structures What tool will meet the needs of your high-impact area? What school-wide structures will you need to set-up for proper student Chromebook use, teacher accountability, and data analysis?

  1.  Reflect/Evaluate Looking back at the past year, what aspects of your school's use of technology has worked? Did you pilot tools? What can be scaled? Do you have specific tools that can be used schoole-wide? What instructional pain points will require new attention this year? Be sure to ground this reflection in data.
  2. Determine school-wide, high-impact initiatives Based on your reflection, determine what focus you want to take this year. Will you scale the flipped model to your whole school, or will you change direction and pilot a station-rotation model? Make these choices based on what has worked for your school and what your needs are moving forward.

  1.  Reflect/Evaluate Looking back at the past year, what aspects of your school's technology use has worked? Why has it worked? In what ways has it not been as successful? What seems to be missing? Looking at the "High 5" signature practices, which do you have in place already? Which practice do you want to focus on this year? Define the next step to advance your instruction even further next year.
  2. Determine school-wide, high-impact initiatives Based on your reflection, determine what focus you want to take this year. Will you scale the flipped model whole school, or will you change direction and try a station-rotation model? Make these choices based on what has worked for your school and what your needs are moving forward.
