Intel Teach to the Future[R] Leadership Forum: Formative Research. CCT Reports
Education Development Center, Inc.
Consistent with the longitudinal evaluation of the Intel Teach to the Future Essentials Course that Education Development Center's Center for Children and Technology (CCT) has been conducting since the program's inception in 2000, the Intel Foundation commissioned CCT to conduct a formative evaluation of the Leadership Forum Pilot program. This report presents findings and recommendations from this formative research. EDC developed and advised Intel in the deployment of an online survey that all Leadership Forum attendees were asked to complete at the end of each training session. The survey instrument investigated the following: (1) Administrators' perceptions of and responses to the program; (2) Their current practices and beliefs regarding the development of their local educational technology program; (3) Their goals for further expansion or improvement of those programs; and (4) Their perceptions of the local conditions that are supporting or impeding their efforts to improve the use of educational technology in their schools or districts. The findings are grouped into five categories: (1) overall training experience; (2) action plans and other curricular modules; (3) Intel Teach to the Future and other future plans; (4) training materials; and (5) facilitation and implementation challenges. The report contains three appendices: (1) Introductory Letter to Online Survey; (2) Online Survey; and (3) Online Survey Basic Frequencies.
