Division Technology Plan Update: 2017 Technology Needs Assessment

RATIONALE

†††† The divisionís 2011-2016 technology plan is being updated to extend through the 2018 calendar year.A technology needs assessment is a required component of the technology plan update.

†††† NC Stateís William and Ida Friday Institute has permitted our division to conduct a needs assessment using the Instituteís online survey system.

 

The online survey is offered in four parts:

I.       Supportive Environment for Technology Use

II.     Professional Development

III.    Teaching and Learning

IV.   Impact of Technology

 

†††† The survey will be prepared in a manner that will allow me to collect and compile perception data by individual school while maintaining each teacherís personal anonymity.Tabulated data will be shared with the school board at a later date.

†††† The Friday Instituteís Terms of Use grants permission to use its survey for educational and non-commercial purposes and allows the division to use the survey "as isĒ or in a modified format.In either case, I will credit the Institute within the divisionís technology plan.

†††† By using the survey tool, the division agrees to allow the Friday Institute to use collected data for additional validity and reliability analysis. The division will be bound to share with the Friday Institute any publications, presentations, or reports that include data that is collected from the survey.

†††† The Friday Institute will take appropriate measures to maintain the confidentiality of the divisionís data.
