The technology plan here has been designed to meet the needs of the students,
who acquire basic knowledge in areas they are lacking. This plan was put
together by the Principal, teachers, parents and members of the community. This
plan will focus on the students acquiring the basic technology skills, such as
choosing and accessing the appropriate technology for their needs. Developing
or enhancing keyboarding skills. Using technology effectively, safely, and
efficiently. Last but not least, enhance or develop research skills using Web
Design, Photoshop, and Java Programming.
Amity School is located in a newly renovated hotel building near the Bay in
Sheepshead Bay. The school also has a dormitory for the High School girls. It is
an independent private school that was established in 1999.

Describe how a variety of stakeholders from within the LEA and the community-
at-large participated in the planning process.
The stakeholders consists of the Principal, Dean of Students, Admissions
Officer, Computer Teachers, Parents, and some Community Members.
These stakeholders came together and organized the perfect plan for the
students needs. They put a plan together on what software would benefit
the students needs, what software and computers to purchase, and who
will have access to these.
Summarize the relevant research and describe how it supports the plan's
curricular and professional development goals.
As the world evolves so must the people and the technology we need to better
adapt. These can range from touch screen phones to computers to video
games. Everything is changing for the better, and the important factor here is to
teach the students the knowledge they need in order to use technology in the
most appropriate way.

Describe and cite the relevant research that supports the plans outcomes
Using technology in the school will overall benefit the students throughout
their school experience and continue to their adulthood in the work field.

Describe the connection between the research and the plans goals.
With effective usage of technology, teachers will be able to deliver personalized,
and effective lessons, this would allow the students to learn at their own pace,
without missing out on any work. The students will become technologically
skilled with the usage of the software provided for them. This way, the students
will be skilled enough to apply everything they learned in the future to their
work.

Describe information gathered from site visits, including best practices.


Aside from empowering students, the benefits of improving communication
between parents, students, and teachers are is outstanding. Through applying
the technological skills they have mastered in school, they can carry on these
skills to their personal life and their business life. The students function
positively, and eagerly without the help of the teacher. They are able to
communicate with each other when working on group assignments. this
practice will further them in their career when they need to work in group
projects.

proposals or partnerships may be needed for successful implementation.

How will your curricular goals and needs influence your technology
goals?
The goals and needs of the students are pretty much the same, according to
their needs, the school will provide the students with technology that will
ensure their growth in areas they are lacking. If they have no skills in typing,
then one of the technology focus would be to implement a class that teacher
the basic training of typing. The same goes for using technology to do
research. If the student doesn't know how to do research using technology,
then a class will be available or required to sharpen their skills.

MONITORING AND EVALUATION COMPONENT


The plan must include an evaluation process that enables the school to monitor
progress toward the specific goals and make mid-course corrections in response
to new developments and opportunities as they arise.

(Answer at least 2 questions for each subsection below)

Describe the process for evaluating the plan's overall progress and impact on
teaching and learning.
How will the LEA know whether implementation of this plan has made
a positive impact on teaching and learning?

In order to find out if this plan has worked or not, we first have to look
at the level of the students when they first started, then monitor their
progress within the year they continued the program. The students
feedback is obviously the most important aspect of finding out if this
program benefits the students or not. Even if they don't achieve the
benefits to the fullest extent, only achieving even half can be
considered as a success.

Who will participate in the monitoring and evaluation process?

Some of the stakeholders will be in charge of overseeing the evaluation of


the process. This will include the principal, technology instructor, and the
secretary.

Describe the schedule for evaluating the effect of plan implementation, including
a description of the process and frequency of communicating evaluation results
to tech plan stakeholders.
How will teachers, parents, and other stakeholders provide suggestions
and opinions in the evaluation process?

In order to grow, we need input from our stakeholders. Through focus


groups, surveys, feedbacks, and meetings, teachers, and parents, and
stakeholders can give their opinions on what is working and what's not
working. Through good communication among these individuals the process
of evaluation will be a success.

How often will data be collected and summarized? Who is responsible?


The collection of the data will occur every month and analyzed before the
scheduled meetings with the stakeholders. Since the teachers are keeping a
record from the beginning of the school year, it will not be hard to compare
and contrast between the collected data. Teachers will be responsible for
the collection and summarization of the data, if they need help, they can
reach out for support from the Technology Instructor.
