The purpose of this study was to describe and evaluate the effectiveness of technology as a tool of instructional delivery. The results informed teachers, administrators, and board members of their current technology status and served in the development of future goals. The goal of the study was to survey the professional teaching staff to gather input and create a focus group to analyze the results.
The Intern surveyed the professional teaching staff at the Volz Middle School to assess how technology was being used to deliver instruction in the Runnemede Public School District. The Intern interviewed a focus group to solicit their reactions to the findings of the survey. There were several discrepancies between the TAGLIT survey results and the focus group's responses.
The Runnemede Public School District has made significant overall gains in the development of its technology program. To address the areas needing improvement, specifically participation in technology professional development workshops, the Intern suggested conducting a professional development survey. To improve communication, the Intern recommended that the technology planning committee conduct articulation meetings with fellow staff members and the community. Further, the researcher suggested the creation of a technology news bulletin to facilitate better communication.
