Technology 101: Use This Handy Checklist

About this Daily Classroom Special
Technology 101 provides pointers, strategies and suggestions for helping your school design a technology plan that meets the needs of members of your learning community. Technology 101 was written by Peggy Wyns-Madison, a former Teachers Network web mentor.

Use This Handy Checklist

Involve and inform relevant school and community members throughout the planning and implementation of staff development program/activities.

Identify information and/or skills to be acquired and determine specific learning objectives.

Identify target groups: Decide who should be involved.

Research and identify available programs and other resources (e.g., local, state, federal) for information related to professional growth.

Identify knowledgeable people to provide training or assistance.

Match available resources with your needs. Select the most appropriate one.

Determine appropriate models and learning strategies for the program.

Generate a list of possible models.

Consider the nature and complexity of the learning objectives.

Consider concerns and learning styles of target audience.

Review research on effective staff development practices as guidelines for design of program.

Are administrators actively involved as participants as well as planners?

Negotiate specific plan with identified trainer(s)/resource persons.

Outline a specific implementation plan (who, what, where, when).

Carry out the program.

Assess the impact of the program over time on staff as well as students. Reassess the problem/need.

Rate the Program
