Developing Classroom-based Data for Technology Decisions: Assisting the Implementation of Oswego's Vision for the Use of Technology. District-Wide Summary Report.
Doughty, Philip; And Others
The purpose of this project was to develop data from the classroom to guide technology planning decisions as Oswego City School District (New York) implements its vision statement on technology. A survey was completed by 357 district teachers (88% response rate) which explored teachers' technology background and expertise, attitudes toward technology and instruction, instructional support and staff development requirements, and general and specific curricular priorities. An alternative model of technology planning was developed which was based on teachers' perceptions of their instructional needs. This report presents summary data and recommendations that apply across all four school levels: elementary, middle school, high school, and academy. It describes how the "Oswego Model" of technology planning was developed along with the instruments used in this model to collect classroom-based data. A summary of results are presented and organized around five general categories of items included in the survey: technology related demographics; continuing education; attitudes toward technology; instructional support; and staff development. Ten recommendations are provided focusing on these five categories. Appendices include the survey instrument with combined results and the survey instruments for the four educational levels. (AEF)
