Technology Planning Committee Meeting 03/23/2015
Posted by Julie Morgenthal on 3/23/2015
Technology Planning Committee Meeting: - An email was sent out inviting all staff to participate in the Technology Planning Committee activities. Those that responded were sent a Doodle request with several meeting dates. Based on their responses a meeting date was chosen. This is an ongoing committee. We would like consistent membership as this improves efficiency and overall effectiveness of the group. However, if you are interested in being a committee member, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Besides reviewing and updating what we do have, here is a sampling of some additional areas that we need to consider:
What can we proactively do to mitigate loss and destruction of technology?
Should parents be more involved in the technology, the use of tech, and the student responsibilities?
Laptop top damage – i.e. intentional: students destroying keyboards i.e. accidental: dropped
Laptop Management – i.e. J.H. laptops don’t get turned back in when a student leaves (steps – who is responsible?)/laptops go missing from class sets
How do we manage chargers? Who is responsible for missing chargers? Is there a budgeted amount per school? Is there a cap?
What is the process when a device is missing?
What is the process if a family leaves and never brings the laptop back? When do we report it stolen or do we report it stolen?
What is the criteria/process for the district to replenish missing laptops? How does this get funded? Is there a cap?
How do we handle student laptop discipline if teachers depend on students having tech?
Does everyone know about the different internet filtering groups for discipline? Does it work?
