HUNTINGTONS SSIP FOR CLASSROOM
TECHNOLOGY Purchase Touchscreen Chromebooks for use in grades 3 through 5 Re-distribute Chromebooks from those grades to 2nd, 7th, and HHS Touchscreen devices will be piloted for use with School4One, eliminating the purchase of math modules in those grades Purchase tablets for use in grades K-1. Purchase 6 per classroom per year for use as a center in classrooms Begin to replace our current Smartboards (approximately 265) with LED interactive whiteboards at the rate of 40 each year. LED boards require no projector/bulbs, have better resolution, do not require calibration, and allow multi-touch. Interactive Whiteboards: The Huntington Union Free School District continues to advance its efforts in crating a district-wide digital age learning culture along with the
implementation of comprehensive technology integration designed to increase student achievement, promote excellence and achieve Cyber Citizenship. The district has an inventory of 263 Smart projectors/Smart boards throughout its schools. There are 46 Smart Boards that exceed 5 years in age and another 78 that are between 4 and 5 years old. The LEP interactive white boards are a long term investment with a life expectancy of approximately 14 years. Advantages of moving to LED interactive whiteboards Longer life expectancy
No bulbs No calibration issues Multi-touch features allow multiple students to interact at one time. Higher resolution Touchscreen Chromebooks
The district has been pro-active in rolling out tablet devices and piloting them to see which is the most cost-effective tool to assist our students in gaining a 21st century education. Touchscreen Chromebooks are inexpensive and give students the opportunity to combine the best features of tablets with the best features of small computers. In particular, students will be able to demonstrate their understanding of math by drawing diagrams and pictures to enhance their thinking using the touchscreen, as well as using interactive games and calculators. Tablets Teachers in grades K and 1 will use tablets to reinforce learning that is taking place in their classrooms. Apps on tablets will be available for use as a center activity to support curriculum. HUFSD completed infra-structure upgrades in 2014-15 so the district is close to meeting the minimum speed of 100 Mbps per 1,000 students required by the Federal Communications Commission. We are currently at 400 Mbps and we have approximately 4500 students. TECHNOLOGY DEVICES WILL:
Enhance DI and Benefit SWD and ENL Students Teachers will use software, videos and apps (Read 180, Math 180, Khan Academy, LearnZillion, YouTube, Google Apps for Education (GAFE) and others) and will assign lessons tailored to the needs of students Expand student learning both inside and outside the classroom The use of technology (GAFE) will allow collaboration and learning to take place regardless of time and place. Students can collaborate on digital projects, conference with leaders all over the world, and can access information on the world-wide-web. Close gaps Digital tools will be used to identify gaps in learning and teachers will use this data to inform instruction.
Teachers will use software, videos and apps to assist students who struggle with specific performance indicators. Enhance communication with parents and other stakeholders Teachers will continue to post information on eboards, google sites and the parent-portal portion of our student management system to keep parents, students and the community informed about progress and happening in the school community. THE SMART SCHOOLS INVESTMENT PLAN: Facilitates technology-based regional partnerships/distance learning
Huntington has Virtual Advanced Placement classes currently and will expand these as interest and technology grows. Our AHSEP program uses Odysseyware, another virtual learning platform Virtual remedial courses have been created by our RTI Math and Reading professionals to alleviate the summer slide. Our school participates in an assessment consortium, where teachers from participating districts create questions aligned to standards and are placed in an item bank, which is then able to be accessed by all parties. Shows that the district is committed to providing professional development in integrating technology into the classroom.
Teachers hold collegial circles in which best practices are shared Two staff-developers work part-time providing assistance to teachers both during the school day and after-school. Huntington is committed to providing St. Patricks School with a portion of funds (see the budget projections) Sustainability: Huntington is committed to using district funds to continue to upgrade infrastructure and to replacing older, obsolete devices. When previous projects are examined, it shows Huntingtons commitment to technology and providing a 21st Century learning experience for students. YELLOW: SSBA Funds will pay.
