Teaching with Tech 2.11.11

The following technology implementation factors were taken from the Project RED report, The Technology Factor: Nine Keys to Student Achievment and Cost-Effectiveness. These nine factors are linked strongly to education success. They are listed in order by their predictive strengths. In other words, the factors at the top of the list are more powerful in terms of student achievement.1. Intervention classes: Technology is integrated into every intervention class.2. Change management leadership by principal: Leaders provide time for teacher professional learning and collaboration at least monthly.3. Online collaboration: Students use technology for online collaboration.4. Core subjects: Technology is integrated into core curriculum weekly or more frequently.5. Online formative assessments: Assessments are done at least weekly.6. Student-computer ratio: Lower ratios improve outcomes.7. Virtual field trips: With more frequent use, virtual field trips are more powerful. The best schools do these at least monthly.8. Search engines: Students use daily.9. Principal training: Principals are trained in teacher buy-in, best practices, and technology-transformed learning.

Spotlight on Instruction
