Today, we spent the majority of time refining our skills with conducting LoTi Walkthroughs using H.E.A.T., creating Individualized Professional Development Plans for teachers, and beginning the steps for designing a Next Steps Action Plan for your campus.
As I mentioned throughout the Institute, our intent is to make technology relevant in schools and the key to this goal is positioning building administrators as change agents in the process. Research has shown that building administrators control the LoTi levels on their campues.
In the week's ahead, you will be discussing curriculum planning for the 2007-08 school year. It is our hope that LoTi and the instructional strategies embedded in the H.E.A.T. approach become a pivotal component of your instructional planning. Keep in mind that technology use coupled with effective instructional practices improves student achievement in the classroom.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
May the LoTi Be With You Always!
