Smith Elementary

Where do we begin our Journey?

Leaders don't force people to follow, they invite them on a journey. --- Dan Forbes

Consider:

Technology is changing at a fast pace. Our students have more access to the internet at home than we think they do. If we want to keep our students engaged in the classroom, we have to catch-up and start integrating technology where it makes sense. Consider where you are as a campus and where you want to go? Develop a three year implementation plan with your leadership team.


YEAR 1 2015-2016

YEAR 2 2016-2017

YEAR 3 2017-2018

What types of technology integration do you see taking place at Smith right now?

Eric Sheninger "We can't blame kids for hating school if we keep doing the same thing we always do. The learner today is wired differently."

CLASSROOM TECHNOLOGY DEVICE STANDARDS AT REES

TEACHERS NEED THE BASIC TOOLS TO MAKE TECHNOLOGY INTERACTIVE

REFLECTOR AIRPLAY SOFTWARE

Makes it possible for the teacher to become untethered from the computer. The teacher can now reflect his/her IPAD onto the Smart Board or call on on students to project their own IPAD work onto the Smart Board. Added to every classroom teacher computer. (PK-4 & SE) $12.00 per Computer License

Device Goal: 2:1 Student to Device Ratio

In a class of 20 students, this ratio makes it possible for two groups of students to be able to access the technology at the same time during reading or math rotations. It also supports collaboration when you assign two students to work together on one device.

INVITE PARENTS AND YOUR PROFESSIONAL LEARNING COMMUNITY INTO YOUR CLASSROOM

CLASS OR SCHOOL-WIDE TWITTER ACCOUNT:

This account allows us to open our classroom doors to parents and the community. Great things are happening every day, yet no one knows about them. This will create transparency and raise school pride. Fast and easy communication tool.

Monitor followers - you have the ability to block followers or have people make a request to follow you.


INDIVIDUAL TEACHER/ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT:

A professional account keeps you connected to current instructional ideas. Teachers can share strategies/activities they think might be helpful for others to see. You can follow other educators that you respect and can learn from. Their tweets come directly to you. Tweet an article, tweet a picture of students using technology, tweet a thought about education.
