4 Executive Summary The Campbellsport School District recognizes and embraces the importance of information technology literacy to the learning process. The district is working toward realigning the curriculum for all grade levels with the inclusion of 21 st century skills. The information supports the need for professional development to successfully continue the incorporation of technology to enhance teaching and learning. The goals that outlined in this plan indicate many opportunities for staff and students. This plan has realistic goals with achievable action plans. The plan is curriculum based indicating that technology will be integrated into every aspect of the teaching process. This plan recommends a boarder range of access to resources for both students and staff through database, research and expansion of the districts computer network.

5 Introduction Relevant Research and Best Practices Review Constructing knowledge is a human activity that can be facilitated by technology; yet students must go beyond seeing technology as a motivational or entertaining item and begin seeing the technology as a tool to accomplish specific learning objectives (Davies, 2009, p. 5). Achieving his or her highest potential requires student engagement in the academic process. The district recognizes that technology integration is about changing teacher practice, motivating students, and creating learning experiences that are real world related or applicable (Pitler, Hubbell, Kuhn, & Malenoski, 2007). The district realizes the potential of differentiation of learning opportunities and integrating technology can provide teachers with instant data and offer a new, exciting challenge for students (Henderson, 2010, p. 5). The Campbellsport School District is aware of the needs of the students and staff, this plan is designed to incorporate those needs. The district is also aware of the financial cost of implementation of technology and is searching for the best way to get the most benefit for the students of Campbellsport. More and more research is emerging to suggest that we need to make the content of education the centerpiece of discussion about education reform (Munson,, 2011, p. 14). To affect true high-quality learning requires collaboration between and among not only students and teachers but also between teacher and administrators and beyond (Fosmire and Macklin, 2002). Protheroe (2005) points out indicators show that technology has the potential to transform education when integrated with emerging models of teaching and learning (Protheroe, 2005, p. 46). Campbellsport recognizes the potential benefits for technology in terms of time-saving, data collection and review, and learning when used effectively while also acknowledging the process takes time, funds, and ongoing training and upgrading. Successful utilization of technology for learning requires thoughtful planning and attention both to the purpose of the instructional activity and to the needs of the students: (Protheroe, 2005, p. 48) and the importance of professional development as part of the process. Implementation of a Robust Library Media Program Given the literacy and comprehension challenges facing schools in this decade especially those presented by the new information landscape we need libraries and librarians now more than ever (McKenzie, 2010, para. 1). Library media and technology are most effective When educators share a vision for learning and then work together designing innovative and authentic learning tasks that incorporate relevant up-to-date resources and powerful learning tools (Potter, Lohr, and Klein, 2002, p. 3) directed at student learning and improved achievement. The Campbellsport district recognizes the importance of working toward the Wisconsin vision of these areas being a seamless component of the educational process. School libraries are much more than books and do have the potential to influence learning and student outcomes through collaboration, support, and integration with other teaching professionals (Scholastic, 2004). Key findings from the 2005 research study conducted in Wisconsin by Ester Smith (as cited in Bugher, 2006) point out that: Campbellsport Information Technology Planning 4

6 schools with full-time certified library media specialists and full-time library aides have higher performance on the Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Examination (WKCE). Schools where the library media specialist spends more time on instructionally related student and teacher activities have higher WKCE scores. Teachers who aligned Wisconsin Model Academic Standards (WMAS) for Information and Technology Literacy to their lessons found school library media programs more helpful to student performance. Schools with great library media program resources for collections and technology have higher performance on the WKCE. Library media specialists help students acquire unique skills not taught in the classroom and information and technology skills essential for students in the 21 st century (Bugher, 2006). School libraries provide not only resources for information literacy, libraries also provide: Collaborative learning spaces A place where both print and non-print resources are available with expertise to assist the learner Provides the opportunity for recreational reading Provides curriculum support Provides quality information to staff and students Provides research assistance beyond googling Provides the opportunity, materials, and support for differentiated instruction (Johnson & Mastrion, 2009) Sustained Systemic Professional Development Joyce and Showers (2002, as cited in L Allier and Elish-Piper, 2005) posit High-quality professional development positively influences student achievement in general (p. 22). Although L Allier and Elish-Piper are focused on the area of reading, the ten best practices extend to information and technology literacy staff development as well. High-quality professional development: 1. Builds a community of learners that is sustained over time. 2. Operates from a data-driven perspective. 3. Focuses on evidence-based practices. 4. Focuses on reading (literacy) as a meaning-making process used for pleasure, for gathering/learning information, and for performing tasks. 5. Includes facilitator-led and teacher-led discussions and activities. 6. Makes connections to texts, professional practice, personal experiences, and other professional development experiences 7. Employs a gradual release of responsibility framework. 8. Acknowledge the complexity of teaching in today s classrooms. 9. Addresses logistical issues associated with teaching. 10. Models important teacher dispositions different learning styles. Campbellsport Information Technology Planning 5

7 Mizell (2006) points out that public school systems are aware of the differing needs of their students on a much higher basis than any other part of society. Students come to school with different learning, physical, experiential, and physiological needs. In order to provide the best possible learning experience for all students, school systems must provide educators with the learning needed to foster the success of students (Mizell, 2006, p. 2) on an ongoing and organized basis. Wolf posits that By using online resource hubs and other tools for collaboration, i.e. blogs and discussion boards, and including virtual or in-school coaching and mentoring, schools, districts, and states are beginning to see gains in teaching quality and student achievement (Von Frank, 2009, p. 3). Effective Student Use of Technology that Fosters Higher Order Thinking and Leads to Improved Academic Achievement In the 21 st Century, it appears that many children and teens spend nearly all their waking hours using media and technology (Rosen, 2011, p. 15). The igeneration is immersed in technology. Their tech world is open 24/7 (Rosen, 2011, p. 15). Making meaning of the vast amount of information available is essential, Any behavior that students use to acquire the knowledge and skills important to your class functions as currency (Jackson, 2010, p. 7). There are definite advantages to having data that issue from authentic literacy tasks, rather than from items that require students to simply fill in the blanks or read a passage and answer a few questions (Guskey, Smith, Smith, Crooks, and Flockton, 2006, p. 74). The more involved students are in their own learning, the more likely they are to put the time and thought into the activities. As Cetron and Cetron (as cited in Marx, 2006) point out, Teachers are becoming mentors and catalysts whose job is not to lecture, but to help students learn to collect, evaluate, analyze, and synthesize information (p. 108). Staff Adoption and Effective Use of Technology During Teaching The staff of the Campbellsport School District agree with the concept that Society must develop ways to restructure the current mile-wide, inch-deep curriculum into engaging, interrelated core knowledge and skills (Dede, Korte, Nelson, Valdez, and Ward, 2005, p. 34). Information technology literacy opens doors for students to be able to delve deeply into subject matter that might otherwise have been outside the reach of their grasp. Our teachers recognize the opportunities and learning needs of their students and the benefits of effective use of technology in the classroom. The acquisition of technology hardware and software now provides the opportunity for effective implementation and integration by teachers and students. As Lamb (2001) pointed out teaching information literacy as a process is the best approach of working with information and creating communication (p. 2). To effectively integrate, connections need to be made with instructional design (Doll, 2009). Chesbro and Boxler (2010) posit that Networked learning supported by 21st-century technology is reweaving the fabric of how educators acquire and create new knowledge (p. 49). Campbellsport Information Technology Planning 6

8 Use of Authentic Inquiry/Problem-Based Learning Units Newman (2003) points out that providing problem-based learning offers the opportunity to make connections to real life situations students may encounter if appropriately used. Advantages to problem-based or authentic inquiry learning in addition to the connections to the real world include the potential for working with large or small groups of students and the benefits of sharing information with the whole group. The problem provides the direction of learning, the motivation for learning and the application of learning (Newman, 2003, p. 1). Some of the objectives identified by Newman (2003) for problem-based/authentic inquiry learning include: To acquire a knowledge base that is relevant and usable in a real world context. To facilitate the integration of knowledge from many different disciplines. To develop self-directed learning skills. To encourage independent critical thinking and reasoning skills. To develop independent life-long learning skills. To provide a student-centered learning opportunity. To acquire information management skills. To enhance student/teacher interaction. Campbellsport teachers recognize the importance of literacy and lifelong learning. Reflection and discussion enhance the learning process and build on the importance of the basic skills and strategies. Campbellsport Information Technology Planning 7

In the Winter of a local needs assessment was completed and an outside facilitator for planning was employed to assist in pulling the process and ideas together into a formal plan for submission to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Community Resources/Adult Literacy Providers Technology The Campbellsport School District was an early adopter of technology and has made capital investments to make funding technology initiatives a priority. The District began purchasing computers in the early eighties. In the 1990s, the District networked its computers. The District has had technology plans in the past that addressed all school and student needs. Past plans have focused on placing hardware and software in the District s PreK-12 schools, building a District-wide network, and enhancing administrative use of computers. Campbellsport Information Technology Planning 10

12 In 2004, the District began to implement wireless technology, replacing the fixed labs with mobile carts of 15 to 30 notebook computers. During the school year, the District built a new elementary school and remodeled the secondary school. The school board dedicated funding to create a state-of-the art fiber-optic connection for both the new school and the existing secondary school. The board also provided funding for a full-time network administrator to handle the operations for the District s network infrastructure, servers, and workstation operations. Ports were added to all classroom areas, giving instructional areas the potential for real-time access. Today, every school has at least one lab and access to computers in the classrooms. In the past three years, the District has continued the process of reviewing and culling instructional software, changing administrative rights. Library Media History of the Library Media Program The District has been proactive in adding library media programs from the beginning. Initially, Eden Elementary did not have a library facility. A library was added in the early 1990s. In 2000, a new library was built at the new elementary school and extensive remodeling occurred at the Junior High/High School Library. Staffing levels have varied over the history of the program. For much of its history, there was only one librarian for the program. During the school year, a second library media specialist was hired. Today, there is one library media specialist and two library aides for the elementary schools, one library media specialist for the Junior High and High School with a part-time aide. The District uses Follett Destiny as the library automation system, and routinely updates the system ensuring the most current software version is used. Students and staff are able to access the districts library catalog from their homes. The District continues to strive to have a strong library media program to support student learning. The library media program has a strong role in facilitating information and technology literacy within the school district. Usage Statistics Campbellsport and Eden Elementary libraries are open throughout the school day for student and teacher use. Students receive weekly instruction from the certified library media specialists. Students are free to check out library materials each week. The circulation statistics are as follows: 34,250 library items at Eden Elementary School and 35,224 at Campbellsport Elementary School. Statement of Philosophy The library media program of the Campbellsport School District exists to support and further the educational goals of the District. We believe that an educated individual is one who has learned how to learn and to examine and explore ideas so one of our major goals is to develop students who will have the desire and the ability to learn independently. The contributions of the instructional media centers fall into two broad areas; those supporting the Campbellsport Information Technology Planning 11

13 instructional objectives of the school s curriculum, and those providing opportunities for personal development and enrichment of individual students. One function of the library media centers is to locate, gather, provide, and coordinate a school s materials for learning, and to provide the essential technology required for the use of these materials. Materials will be selected to provide for students differing needs, interests, and abilities, while representing the diversity of cultures, creeds and ethnic groups that exist in our state, country and the world. In addition, the collection must be balanced representing the differing positions that exist on controversial issues. The library media program supports the curriculum and is instrumental in facilitating student growth as they develop technology literacy skills. The library media specialists are the classroom teachers partners in implementing the NETS standards, helping students acquire the skills and knowledge needed to live productively in an increasingly global and digital world. In addition, the library media center staff promotes leisure reading maintaining a collection containing books which appeal to students diverse interests. The library media center staff fosters a positive and productive attitude toward learning and a sense of personal enjoyment in the world of ideas found in books and other forms of media. The development of a comprehensive media program is built on this foundation. All students shall be provided access to a current balanced collection of books, electronic databases, periodicals, and additional electronic resources which support student learning. Local Resources Fiscal resources for non-equipment needs will be established at the time of the adoption of the budget. Basic influence on the budget will be; unsatisfied needs expressed from the year before; recommendations from staff; changes in curriculum, and school board recommendations. Goals Needs to satisfy the curriculum will be considered the most important factor in selecting materials. Selection of materials must not neglect the importance of providing careers type information, materials that will expand the student s knowledge and appreciation in the arts, and provide greater depth in knowledge of many subjects. The Board of Education, which is responsible for all book purchases, recognizes the student s right to free access to many different types of books. The Board also recognizes the right of teachers and administrators to select books and other materials in accord with current trends in education, and to make them available in the schools. It is, therefore, the policy of this district to require the materials selected for our school be in accord with the following: 1. Books and other reading matter shall be chosen for values of interest and enlightenment of all students in the community. A book shall not be excluded because of the race, nationality, political, or religious views of the writer or of its style. 2. Every effort will be made to provide materials that present points of view concerning the problems and issues of our times, international, national, and local; and books or other reading matter of sound factual authority shall not be prescribed or removed from library shelves or classrooms because or partisan, doctrinal approval or disapproval. 3. It is recognized that our district funds are limited and that our libraries are in need of many materials to support our curriculum programs. It is therefore imperative that moneys be allocated to purchase materials of greatest importance. Much of the selecting will be initiated by instructors of the curriculum. Such recommendations will be appraised by the teacher as to the Campbellsport Information Technology Planning 12

14 readability and the mastery for students for whom they are intended. The librarian and teachers will use, as guides for selection, Wilson and other standards including those from the Department of Public Instruction. Recommendations will be accepted from students and citizens. That the final decision for controversial reading matter shall rest with the Board after examination and discussion of the book or reading matter with school officials or anyone else the Board may wish to involve. The Board recognizes the right of an individual parent to request that his child not have to read a given book, provided a request is made to the District Administrator. Any person who considers a publication in any library as being of poor quality or lacking in acceptable standards shall bring this to the attention of the building principal or District Administrator and discuss the objections with them. Lost or Damaged Materials 1. If a book is damaged, the borrower may be charged a nominal fee for repair. 2. If the item cannot be repaired, the borrower will be charged the cost of the borrowed item. 3. If materials are lost, the cost of the item will be charged. 4. A receipt will be given to the individual for the amount paid. 5. Payments for lost or damaged materials is to be used by the library to help cover the cost of repaired or replaced materials. Students Leaving the District 1. The student gets a form from the office for all staff members to sign. 2. The library media specialist must sign the form to verify that all materials checked out by the student(s) have been returned or payment for lost or damaged materials has been paid. 3. The school principal will address the situation if the proper procedures are not followed. Campbellsport Information Technology Planning 13

24 As a district, Campbellsport has made great strides in the effective integration of information technology literacy as a part of the teaching learning process. We believe it is important to continue to build upon the solid base we already have in place. Analysis of Access to Information Resources and Learning Tools Survey responses from students indicated a desire for additional technology and increased access to existing technology with training on how to use the technologies available. Increased use in the classroom was also mentioned. The following responses provide some insights into providing access for all students: 3.29% of students indicated they do not have a computer at home, 4.39% indicated they do not have Internet access at home 4.39% of respondents stated they were not able to use a computer for schoolwork when needed Analysis of Support Systems and Leadership There appears to be a solid comfort level with existing support systems and leadership for information technology literacy in the District. Teacher responses: Understand and use technology systems (2.38, out of a possible 3). Troubleshoot systems and applications (2.75, out of a possible 3). Transfer current knowledge to learning of new technologies (2.64, out of a possible 3). Exhibit leadership for digital citizenship (2.67, out of a possible 3).

35 Dissemination to Stakeholders Dissemination Plans The plan will be brought before the Board of Education for approval. Each building principal will be given a building copy of the plan. Building principals will share the plan with their staff members. A copy of the plan will be included on the District s website for stakeholders to review. The District will highlight points of Information Technology Plan as well as progress in District and school newsletters as well as local newspapers. Adult Literacy Opportunities Campbellsport recognizes the importance of working together to create the best educational atmosphere possible and strives to create partnerships with the community, businesses, institutions of learning, and professional development. Knowledge shared with parents relative to information technology literacy provides support for parents and students. Monitoring, Evaluation, and Revision The plan will be reviewed and revised annually. Representatives from each school will participate in the review. An annual update on progress made on the plan will be given to the school board. The activities/implementation include information designed to permit monitoring progress toward our goals while also permitting us to make changes as needed in response to new developments and/or opportunities. The Information and Technology Literacy Plan will continue to be aligned to the District Goals, Action Plan, and long-term initiatives. As work on adding the Information Technology Literacy Standards into the core curriculum continues, IT resources needed will be identified and purchased, and professional development will be aligned to these needs.
