SITE 2015 – The Runbook Pilot Project: Professional Learning For Technology Coordinators

The Runbook Pilot Project: Professional Learning For Technology Coordinators

A Google Apps for Education Runbook was developed for the Hawaii Department of Education at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, College of Education, Curriculum Research & Development Group (CRDG).  The Runbook guide is geared towards school-based technology coordinators and administrators interested in transitioning their schools to Google Apps for Education. In the past, technology coordinators have been left primarily on their own to deploy and administer their own Google Apps domains. This has had a number of negative effects that include but are not limited to  failed deployments, unsecured domains and lack of institutional buy-in.  It is the hope that a systematic, comprehensive and appropriate guide to deploying Google Apps will help schools enter confidently and effectively into the 21st century.

More from the ISTE poster session description

Purpose & objective

The purpose of our poster is to share the success and challenges of our Run Book Project, a project whose goals were to provide technology coordinators with concentrated professional development with extended followup support to enable them to deploy and maintain a Google Apps for Education environment in eight Hawaii Department of Education schools. Concurrently, the eight schools were part of a pilot 1:1 computer initiative designed to support the department’s Common Core Digital Curriculum. This poster is not a description of the 1:1 computer initiative or the Common Core Digital Curriculum. Our goal is to share information about the professional development of the technology coordinators in this wider effort.
Our poster addresses three particular ISTE standards–ISTE C6, ISTE A2, and ISTE T1. We address different staff roles in the schools who ultimately support the effectiveness of digital tools in the hands of students for learning and creativity. We primarily focus on the role of the technology coordinator and his/her growth in knowledge and skills to support the 1:1 initiative Hawaii has implemented in eight pilot schools. Secondly, we work closely with the school administrators at those schools so that they understand the influence they have on establishing the digital culture at their school and by extension their community’s home environment for digital exploration and sustainability. And lastly, we constantly remind ourselves that we need to ultimately support our teachers who are at our front lines in facilitating, leading, directing, motivating, and modeling passionate discovery and creativity.
After you visit our poster, chat with us, and view our accompanying videos about implementation, we hope you will leave with the following information:
– knowledge of how our effort to support the TCs was ultimately to support the implementation of Common Core State Standards
– information about how we organized a two-day summit to brainstorm the need to balance TC needs and department outcomes
– outline of the two-day, intensive hands on professional development with TCs
– tips and tricks on how we continuously supported the TCs during their deployment and maintenance via our Google + community
– details on the devices supported, software used, issues encountered, and success stories

The eight schools with which we worked represented different aspects of school profiles and were even on different islands in our island state. Six schools were on the island of Oahu and two were on the island of Hawaii. Six were elementary schools, one was a middle school, and one was a middle-high school. Not all schools were in locations where high-speed internet was steadily available, so challenges in connectivity were known prior to the department’s 1:1 computer initiative.
The premise of our work in grounded is technological pedagogical content knowledge, or TPACK (Mishra and Koehler, 2006), a convergence of pedagogical knowledge (Shulman, 1986), technological pedagogical knowledge and technological content knowledge. The concept of TPACK was proposed to provide theoretical grounding to the notion that teachers already have a strong situated knowledge of their own teaching philosophies that needed to be pooled with essential knowledge of technology into their learning situations. An extension of Shulman’s (1986) notion of pedagogical mastery where teachers are adept at content as well as competent in teaching strategies, Mishra and Koehler (2006) proposed that new technologies also had a significant impact in transforming learning. Koehler and Mishra’s resulting model of TPACK in 2009 emphasized their belief that the interrelationship of content mastery, pedagogical strategies, and technical skills are all critical to effective representation of content to learners.
Where most TPACK studies have focused on pre-service and inservice teachers, ours focused on technology coordinators. In our case, the assumption was that technology coordinators already possess a strong technical skillset and that the understanding of how to support teachers (the pedagogy and perhaps content) needed to increase. We share in this poster information our experiences in dispelling of some of those assumptions as well as our successes and challenges so that others can hopefully benefit from our systematic investigation, reflection, and continuous refinement of our Run Book professional development project.
As we have just started the professional development effort, we do not yet have specific evidence of success to share. However, the professional development is happening in Fall of 2013 and device rollout to students is happening in Spring of 2014. We anticipate having our case studies completed and ready for share in our poster by Summer 2014.

Do This, Not That: Chromebooks In A One-to-one Pilot

Hawai‘i Google Apple for Education Summit 2013
University of Phoenix – Honolulu, Hawai‘i 
Saturday, January 12, 2013

Is your school considering a one-to-one program? Are you contemplating a Chromebook deployment? Maybe you already have a partial one-to-one, but are wondering how to round out your implementation. We will walk through our research, planning, and implementation for a Chromebook versus MacBook Pro one-to-one pilot initiative, leveraging Google Apps for Education. This session will provide a insight of a Chromebook one-to-one at the University Laboratory School.
