Technology Integration Evaluation Base Service

NERIC has contracted with the BrightBytes Clarity platform to improve the impact of technology on student learning with evidence-based research and analysis. Leveraging data through the BrightBytes Clarity platform will help districts focus technology spending in highest need areas, write effective and meaningful instructional technology plans, assess progress of instructional technology initiatives and programs and strengthen communication between all district stakeholders (administrators, school board members, teachers, support staff, students, parents and community members).

Technology Evaluation, Visioning and Planning

This service is designed to more comprehensively assist districts with evaluating instructional and administrative technology through both development of a technology plan linking curriculum, assessment, instruction with technology and customized consultation on technology planning. Long-range instructional technology planning should address such issues as district vision; data collection; analysis and reporting; using technology to support learning; equipment, wiring and software prioritization and procurement; implementation; staff development; support; funding; evaluation and communication of overall technology planning with stakeholders.

A typical implementation of this more comprehensive technology planning service would include technology planning (facilitated creation and yearly update); data to inform budgeting and procurement cycle for sustainable vision; two (2) days on-site facilitation (kick off, board presentations, facilitated focus groups, technology committee meetings etc.); four (4) days customized consultation around the following topics: leadership and human infrastructure, policies and governance, impact of professional development, new models of technical support, remote access, e-learning, curriculum and instruction and family and community partnerships; and four (4) days targeted shared professional development.
