A Middle School Instructional Technology Study: Assessing Instructional Technology Staff Development and Training Needs Using the Shared Decision Making Process.
Tubbs, J. Eric
The purpose of this study was to determine Tapp Middle School's instructional technology staff development needs, determine sustainability and staff development costs, and develop a long-range comprehensive instructional technology staff development action plan. This study also focuses on the student as the customer who deserves access to the best technology available. It purports the notion that instructional technology is not limited to computers but includes any modernized method or device that assists classroom instruction in grade levels six through eight at Tapp. Data collected in this study indicated that there were no statistically significant differences between years of experience and experience with instructional technology. An analysis of subject responses indicates that Tapp Middle School's faculty and staff needs to become familiar with windows based software, multimedia presentations, Internet, stand alone computer and network environments, multitasking, and office software packages. Several recommendations are provided and four exhibits include a staffing plan, bylaws, the instructional technology survey, and survey results. (AEF)
