TIP Project: Technology Integration Phases

TIP Grid 1

Beginning in the 2008-09 school year, Eugene School district 4J began a K-12 systemic project to help integrate technology into the classroom to ensure that ALL students would have access to learning with 21st Century tools.  Each year a new team of teachers was selected from each school to receive equipment (according to assessed Phase) and professional development on strategies, methods, and ideas on teaching with technology (elementary: 3 teachers, middle: 4 teachers, high: 6 teachers).

The Project provided each cohort with:

  • High quality, intensive, sustained professional development for a team of certified classroom teachers from each K-12 school including one “early intervening services” teacher
    (e.g. SPED, reading specialist, student achievement coordinator, etc…).
  • Release time to attend workshops throughout the school year
  • Technology equipment specific to each Phase
    (laptop, projector, doc camera, airliner, SMARTBoard, clickers, etc….)

In return, each participant was expected to:

  • Attend and participate in ALL TIP Project professional development workshops
  • Continue development work on a K-12 scope and sequence for technology skills and concepts
  • Share examples of instructional technology products (teacher or student) with entire school staff during the 2009-2010 school year (minimum three).
  • Align personal instructional technology goals and lesson plans with Oregon Technology Plan, and the National Educational Technology Standards for Students (NETS*S)
  • Keep a brief log of activities, lessons, research, experiences, frustrations, lessons learned, contacts etc… (via the TIP wiki) to share with other participants (2 entries per month)
