Teacher Leadership Project 2002: Evaluation Report.
Brown, Carol J.; Rojan, Amy
The Teacher Leadership Project (TLP) is a program developed to assist teachers in their efforts to integrate technology into the school curriculum. The program also encourages and facilitates teachers in assuming leadership roles to help schools and districts develop and implement technology plans, and to provide training in using technology. During the 2001-2002 school year, 1,000 new teachers were selected to participate in the TLP, bringing the total number of trained teachers to 2,400. Data on the program we regathered from reflective journals responses classroom observations, teacher and student surveys, and teacher interviews. Evaluation questions focused on four areas: teacher use of technology in the classroom; effects of the training program on the classroom and the school; teacher technology leadership activities; and appropriate use of technology for K-2 students. Additional findings emerged and offered insight into: successes and challenges of an integrated curriculum; the TLP training model; the Understanding by Design framework, and miscellaneous attitudes regarding educational computer technology. Several recommendations are offered. Appendixes include the teacher and student surveys, K-2 interview and observation protocol, and Year 3 and Year 4 interview and observation protocol.
