School of Science and Technology is a system of high performing college


preparatory open enrollment charter school that focus on math, science, engineering
and computer technologies.(SST Employee Handbook, 2014-2015, p.7) Because
that reason SST San Antonio has a goal to increase usage of technology in the
campus to increase the level of quality of education and expand effectiveness of

instructional technology education.


Addition to that, usage of technology will increase participation of students to
lessons. This will help teachers to reach many students in short time and help
students to effectively improve their learning skills. Moreover, usage of technology
will change monologue and ordinary classrooms to more engaged and more active
learning classrooms .Students will be eagerly to come school and be better learners.

CURRICULUM COMPONENT CRITERIA.


The Plan must establish clear goals and realistic strategy for using
telecommunications and information technology to improve education services.
(Answer at least 2 questions for each subsection below)
Describe teachers' current access to instructional technology and current use of
digital tools.

Academic leadership follows regular classroom visits to teachers rooms to monitor


the progress of the programs implemented as well as establishes support meetings
for those who need improvement in teaching methods and implementing

technology in classrooms.
School of Science and Technology uses Eduphoria software program for teacher to
submit their lesson plans, create homework, classwork, quiz and test. Also
Eduphoria helps teacher to see students` results and teachers can evaluate students
learning progress objective by objective. In addition to that teacher may assign
assignments through online which will let students to use technology other than
paper assignments. Preparation of more personalized and objective-specific tutoring

materials have been made possible use of technology in the Eduphoria.


SST provides laptops, IPads and Chromebooks to students and teachers use and
utilize for their lessons.
Such as science department has a suite of laptops that are powerful enough for
Video editing and interface with Vernier probe ware, and we have acquired
complete classroom sets of iPads and Chromebooks. Students use these
technologies to research information for projects, to collect and organize data in

laboratory experiments, and to create presentation aids.


Math teachers use Chromebook for their students to assign Think Through Math
program objectives to help them to more practice at least one period of day.

Also math teachers use Accelerated Math and CPS clickers once a week for class.
ELA teachers use IPads for students to assign more article assignment and reading
article assignments. Also ELA teachers Accelerated Reader program every day

during reading time to see students level of reading progress.


Evidence of the use of this technology can be found on campus frequently as there
tends to be classes using the 3 carts above every day. These mobile technology
platforms are in addition to the two computer labs on campus, each of which have

an entire class set of desktop computers.


Lastly, our robotics team was able to acquire a 3D printer, and our PBL teachers
will begin brainstorming how to design Math and Science PBLs that use this new
technology. Our goal is for our students to have access to and the knowledge to use
technology whether its for simple web browsing for internet research or for
designing 3D objects and printing them all while maintaining good digital citizenry

and making real world connections to technology use in the workforce.
