The District
The U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) Pacific branch is divided into sections. One of those sections is the Department of Defense District Schools (DoDDS) Okinawa. It is the second largest district among four DoDEA pacific districts (DoDEA, 2013). It is home to 13 schools from grades prek-12. There are two High schools, three middle schools, and eight elementary schools on the island of Okinawa, Japan. The district serves military students as well eligible civilian personnel families in Okinawa. The student population is approximately 7,600 with 950 educators and support staff (2013). The district is very diverse and is made up of many different ethnicities. The population is distributed as follows: 35 percent of the population is white, 17 percent is multi-racial, 16 percent is Hispanic, 15 percent Black/African American, 10 percent Asian, 1 percent Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, 1 percent American Indian or Alaskan Native, and 5 percent declined to state (DoDEA, 2013). In the Okinawa district, schools have access to the following technology: SMART Boards ELMO Document Cameras SMART Slates SMART Response Systems Camcorders Cameras Computer labs Each school in the district distributes these items according to their needs. There are several compute labs within each building that teachers can sign up for. Some schools also have mobile labs that can be checked out for classroom use. All the classrooms are equipped with a SMART Board, projector, and document camera. There are also at a minimum, 4 student computers in each classroom. The other technology items are available for teachers to check out as needed. In addition, staff has access to a vast amount of software that can be used with their students. The following table shows the current technology software or programs that are available on district computers.

The Problems
The district currently has a vast amount of technology resources available for teachers to use. One problem is that teachers are not receiving training regarding how to use the technology tools that are available for them to use. There are no training sessions in place for new teachers either. Classrooms are equipped with SMART Boards and document cameras; some of these dont get used. Some teachers are afraid to try to use the technology tools, since they have been teaching for so long without them. They also find it difficult to operate the tools. Some teachers feel lost or unsure of what to do regarding the technology that they have in their room. Each school is also equipped with tools such as SMART Slates, SMART Response systems, and cameras. Many of teachers are not aware that such tools are available for them to check out and use. Many of these tools sit untouched in the offices of Educational Technologists (ETs) or in media centers. Teachers do not fully understand how to utilize these technology tools to teach their curriculum. Some teachers try to use the technology that is available, but they arent using it to its potential because they have not been trained how to do so. DoDDS Okinawa lacks the training to help teachers use the technology that is currently in place.

The Needs
Our district has all this great technology that is available for teachers to use with their students and some of it isnt being touched. Our district needs to focus on equipping the

DTTP Plan

Estupin 5

staff in every building to properly use the technology that is already in place before purchasing new technology. Training is needed for teachers both new and old. Our district doesnt offer training across the board to all schools. Offering refresher courses for staff would also help teachers in using the technology tools that are available. Some of the ETs at each campus offer training session to their teachers. This training should be consistent across all schools within the district. Teachers that transfer schools should all have the same training. Doing so will help create a unified technology push in the right direction for our district. Our district needs a unified training plan to keep everyone focused and headed in the right direction. In asking some of the staff, most of them preferred face to face training. Doing so would give teachers the opportunity to collaborative with each other, which was another area that they said could be improved in our district. In developing the technology training for our district we will keep this in mind. Our district needs to continue to ask staff what it is that they want. Adapting to meet their needs and desires can help this training be more effective. One of the things that our staff said that was needed in our district is training based on their needs and wants. Surveys should be sent out periodically to determine what our staff needs training in. Doing so would help keep the district on track in regards to future technology training. Another major problem are for our staff is that they received basic training in technology but are ready to move on to more advanced things but there arent any training sessions offered to help them meet their goals and needs. Offering a wide range of training sessions would help meet the needs of all teachers. Here is a link to the survey results from some of the staff in our schools. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1r5OXn0E7IcjhLV2ZRQlxKyJxC4o42IvuZ5NpWQckuXs/ viewanalytics Based on the results of the survey and initial observations, the following are seen as immediate needs in our district. 1. Assess current technology expertise levels of staff

DTTP Plan

Estupin 6

2. Provide unified training for the district 3. Train staff on existing technology 4. Survey staff periodically on technology needs 5. Train teachers based on their individual needs and levels

The Audience
The program that this plan outlines is for teachers, administrators, and staff. The plan is to ensure that everyone at who works for the district is properly trained in using the technology that is currently set in place. This can be done through the use of the ETs on each campus. The ETs will provide the technology training to their staff. All of the ETs will use the same training material to teach their staff. Teachers will be trained so that they can implement the technology effectively into lessons. This training applies to all staff, those been with the district for 20 years and those that are brand new to the district. Support staff needs to be trained as well since they have access to the technology when they work with students. Special education teachers, English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers, speech teachers, counselors, reading and math support teachers, gifted and talented teachers, and specialists all work with students so they too must be trained. Most of the support staff has technology equipment in their classrooms that they can use. Administrators will also be trained so that they can give teachers as much help as support as possible. The principal is the key facilitator in the effort to infuse technology into the school (Dawson & Rakes, 2003). They also need to be knowledgeable since they observe teachers on a frequent basis. When they do walk-throughs in the classroom, they will have a better understanding of the learning that is happening. The Educational Technologist (ET) at each campus in the district can provide help and assistance to the staff in regards to the tools that they are using. They are only there to assist and guide the staff as needed.

The Goals/ Objectives


The goal is to train all staff members that work with students in each school to work with the existing technology in our district. Staff will gradually learn how to use all of the resources that our district has in place. The goal is for staff to learn a minimum of 3 new technologies a year. Over the next several years teachers will feel more comfortable using the technology in their classrooms. The ultimate goal is to have all the staff in our district trained in all the technology that we currently have available in our district. The training will be offered multiple times a year and at different ability levels. New teachers will be trained prior to their official start date. This will ensure that all teachers in the district receive proper technology training. Training will be offered at the beginning of the year and during district Professional development days throughout the year. Teachers will have to choose the course the best suits their own needs and abilities.

Instructional Strategies
The content will be taught using face to face training sessions. District professional Development Days will be used to train the staff. Trainers will utilize a wide range of instructional strategies to teach the technology to the staff. Each individual session will need to be looked at to determine which strategy is best to use when teaching it to the staff. For instance staff can complete a scavenger hunt using fireworks in one training session. In a different training session, trainers could use games to teach the content such as how to create interactive files using SMART Notebook. Videos can be used for just about every topic to show how to use the tool in the classroom effectively. There are so many different ways to present the content; it is the job of the committee to determine which strategies are best to use to keep the workshops interesting and varied. The ETs in the district could help provide some suggestions on which strategy to use, since they frequently teach the content to their staff in different ways. The goal is to create unity and consistency among the trainers in our district so that every single staff member is taught effectively.

Questions

Field Test
Each workshop will first be tested by presenting it to ETs in the district. They are technology experts at the campus that they work. They will go through the training course and provide feedback as needed. They will give suggestions on how to improve the workshops based on their experiences with their staff members. Their suggestions will be taken into consideration because they know their staff members since they train them throughout the year. During this time, they will be able to ask questions or seek clarification on any particular area.

Revision
In teaching the workshop to the ETs, we will most likely run into some bumps in the road; the goal is to learn from those bumps and improve the workshop to best fit the needs of the

DTTP Plan

Estupin 19

staff. Any changes that are needed will be made as a committee. The feedback provided by the ETs in our district will be taken into consideration by the committee. Those changes will be made before making the workshops available to staff members.

Evaluations
Each workshop will have an evaluation that the trainees will answer before leaving. They will provide feedback to help the trainers improve their trainings in the future. The committee drafted the following evaluation that can be answered online or on paper. The district will use this form when any technology training occurs. This will help keep the trainings unified. Here is a sample of what the evaluation looks like. Sample Evaluation1

Summative Evaluation
In order to look at the success of each training session a number of factors will be looked at. The evaluations completed by the trainees will be looked at and analyzed. Then the evaluations completed by each trainer will also be looked at and analyzed. These two things together will help give the committee a better understanding of how the training implementation is going in our district. Each trainer will also fill out an evaluation after each training session is held. This form will be used by all trainers who provide a technology workshop in the district. The committee has created a sample evaluation. Here is what it looks like:

Budget
Training will occur on district professional development days throughout the year. Teachers will not receive a stipend since the professional development days are part of their duty days. Trainers will be paid for training staff. There will be 3 sessions offered at each professional development day based on ability levels. Staff will also be divided into three groups, elementary, middle, and high school. Since venues in our district will be used to hold the training no additional costs will incur. The table below shows the budget.

Conclusion
Our district needs to place technology training at the top of it priority list. We need to train the staff in the district how to effectively use the technology that is currently in place. Our current technology isnt being used to its maximum potential. Training for the staff will occur on district wide staff development days. A few training sessions will happen each year so that teachers are not overwhelmed and can put into practice what they learn at each workshop. New teachers will receive training throughout the district to ensure that they too have been properly trained. The goal for our district is to train all staff in the district in a consistent effective manner. The key determinant of our success will not be the number of computers purchased or cables installed, but rather how we define educational visions, prepare and support teachers, design curriculum, address issues of equity, and respond to the rapidly changing world (p.14) (Kleiman, 2004).
