ITAC Meeting 7

During the seventh meeting of the Instructional Technology Advisory Committee, teams worked to refine their recommendations in four areas:

  • Classrooms
  • Computer labs
  • Student devices
  • Teacher devices

We referred back to our our actions and attributes as defined in the Guidelines for Instructional Technology Considerations document as we did so, and also considered the realities of the budget and equipment costs. For many of the recommendations, teams defined three states to bring forward

  • An Ideal State, which would exceed the needs of our actions and attributes and would allow us to greatly expand the use of technology for teaching and learning.
  • An Acceptable State, which would still meet the expectations set out in our actions and attributes, but might not fully realize the ideal state we hope to build for our students.
  • A Minimal State, which would satisfy many of our actions and attributes, but might require some compromises on how those expectations are met.

Teams also began to build a rationale for their recommendations by listing the pros, cons, and implications of these three states. These will be used to build a final set of recommendations that will be presented to Joe McBreen and ultimately to district leadership.

You can see the recommendations as they exist in draft form by using these links. We hope you’ll leave comments, questions and feedback below to help us refine the work we’ve done.
