Following are the responses to the Sherman Middle School case study received from Technology Institute participants at the Washington, DC Improving America's Schools Conference.




1.  Identify the critical issues that most impact this school (what are the school's strengths and challenges?).






2.  What appear to be the staff's greatest needs towards effective technology use?



3.  Develop realistic objectives for this school (be sure these objectives are measurable)


4.  List some strategies you would employ to meet the objectives (consider both what's already working and what needs to be improved).

Do not have faculty meetings. Teachers must check their email for information



5.  Identify criteria for measuring the cusses of your plan (what evidence will you look for?).



6.  What kinds of data will tell you if you've met the criteria and how might you collect that data?
