Part 1: Identification of Learning Problem

General Audience

The primary audience consists of certified teachers and administrators of all ages, experience
levels, and subject areas within the Richmond County School system(RCSS). The primary
audience teaches or provides supportive educational services to students in grades K-12 (ages
of these students vary widely from 5-18 years). Personnel involved in direct instruction will be
among the first to receive the training. The Richmond County Public Schools (RCPS) website
states that 27% of professional staff have four-year Bachelors degrees, 41% have Master’s
degree, 26% have Specialists degrees, and 6% have a Doctorate (Ph.D. or EdD).

Problem Identification

Richmond County School system adopted a Bring Your Own Technology(BYOT) policy in 2013.
Since the adoption, administrators, instructional technology specialists and teachers continually
work towards making sure innovative strategies and software are used to engage students and
increase achievement. “ClassFlow is an instructional delivery system that allows for
personalized learning, as well as interactivity and collaboration, by connecting classroom
displays to student devices. Educators can easily and quickly push out their content, a student’s
content or even assessments for full-classroom engagement. In ClassFlow, existing lessons can
be shared, or new interactive ones created from scratch. Specifically designed content can also
be sent to different students, or groups of students, for differentiated, personalized
learning.”(District Administration)

Instructional Goals

· Users will be able to demonstrate the creation of a ClassFlow Account


· Users will be able to apply knoweldge to set up classes in ClassFlow
∙ Users will be able to create lessons in ClassFlow.
· Users will be able to use ClassFlow resources in Marketplace
· Users will be able to apply knowledge to align with state standards

Introduction

The targeted audiences of learners are primarily teachers of grades K-12 covering all subjects
within the RCSS. All members of the primary audience hold certifications covering all grade
levels. Richmond County School System and all of its schools are engaged in an ongoing
continuous improvement process. The system serves a diverse population of students with a
wide range of needs. Approximately 78% of students qualify for free and reduced lunches in 57
schools including eight comprehensive high schools, nine middle schools, 34 elementary
schools, four magnets, one charter and one special school. With 2500 plus professionally
certified employees, the Superintendent, her administration, and teachers are committed to
making sure each student receives the highest quality education. Implementing the newest
software and technology to assist in that goal is imperative. “Martha Barwick, Coordinator of
Instructional Technology at HCPS, found that while the existing technology tools in place in
every classroom increased interactivity and feedback, she felt that there was more that could be
done to facilitate higher-level learning. “Technology, in itself, is not a magic fix. We needed a
method to enhance learning and complement teachers’ skills,” (District Administration
Oct2015,Vol. 51 Issue 10, p3-3.1p)

Entry Characteristics:
Prerequisite skill & knowledge:
· Ability to log onto a computer
· Ability to comprehend basic computer functions and navigation within the
computer operating system
· Ability to access the internet
· Knowledge of Georgia curriculum guidelines
· Knowledge of Richmond County Public Schools Teaching strategies.

Prior Experience:
Most of the educators are already accustomed to working with computers on a daily
bases. Email, word processing skills, and limited presentation skills are proficient through the
majority of all faculty. The learning curve is increased with the addition of unfamiliar hardware
and software. Many teachers struggle with the addition of new software and require assistance
throughout the year.

Common errors made by technology-challenged teachers:


· Confusion with log on procedures
· Inability to navigate the site
· Unable to use help features when needed

Potential Misconceptions:
· A Promethean Board is required for use
· Increasing the workload of the educator

Attitudes Towards Content & Academic Motivation

Ensuring the proper use of technology to facilitate higher level learning is a district-wide
initiative. This professional development will benefit all certified staff from the teacher to the
administrator.

The website will provide ClassFlow lesson plans, tutorials, and communication with other
professionals. It will assist in implementing the software into a teachers curriculum.
Task Analysis

The task analysis was developed using the procedural analysis method which analyzes the task
identifying the steps required to complete the task. This method will help break down the
ClassFlow registration and basic use. Learning the software, I first developed a flowchart to help
identify all the necessary procedures. I have registered and created classes in ClassFlow as
well as utilized the Marketplace while connecting to state standards.

While creating the procedural analysis, it was important not to assume the learners have any
knowledge of the hardware and software. In other words, even the simplest of tasks such as
logging on to the site may be an issue to the educator. Site navigation is also an important goal.
There is prior knowledge each Educator will be expected to know concerning Georgia
Performance Standards in regards to the subject area they teach, however, this will be
addressed in detail later.

Subject Matter Expert

I (Jason Stark) will serve as the SME for this instructional plan. I received my bachelor’s degree
in Technology Education from Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia. I am
currently pursuing a master’s degree in Instructional Technology with dual certification from
Georgia Southern University. My primary qualification to serve as SME is my 15 years of
teaching experience in the field of technology education. To stay up with the constantly
changing subject, I have on a yearly bases identified new software or internet sites and created
lesson plans or curriculum for students. For the past two years, I have served as Media
Specialist for Cross Creek High School. As Media Specialist, I have continued to look for new
and innovative ways for my teachers to present their curriculum.

Part VIII: Formative Evaluation Plan

For the formative evaluation of this course I will have the teachers complete an online Google
Forms survey. These surveys will be anonymous so that the participants will feel free to answer
honestly. The Instructional Technology Specialist for my school, Cross Creek High School, will
serve as the subject matter expert. She has been a Intructional Technology Specialist for over
two years and has been responsible for instructing teachers on new RCBOE software and
technology. She will therefore be able to give constructive feedback.

Give one example of new information you learned during this instruction?

What suggestions do you have for improving this course?

The evaluations will be collected and analyzed by the Instructional Technology Specialist and
myself. We will then discuss any modifications that may be made to improve the course. This
will be accomplished by breaking down the data into subcategories of learner benefits and
instructional execution. This will assist in determining which parts of the course need the most
improvement.
