Level 1 Technology Proficiency

The District/State have approved a new Tech Plan
You may have read about it in theDaily Pilot Article. They are currently putting together a tech incentive plan to provide funding for technology to support teachers as they move their school forward, towards our shared technology vision. To qualify for these incentives teachers must show a basic level of competency by completing OCDE's Level 1 or 2 Technology Proficiency.

What is it?
Basic Technology Skills in Email, Internet, Word Processing and 3 Elective Catagories

Why do it?
Hop on the bus!
Modern/Competitive Professionalism
Students Benefit

How will my class benefit from having a teacher that can do these things?
What will these skills look like when integrated with curriculum?

Samples of Elective Modules: (Choose 3 for Level 1)
• Spreadsheet (e.g. Excel)
Sample Kinder HM Theme Test Data

• Presentation (e.g. PowerPoint)
Sample Sight Word Presentation
Plenty of other samples available at HMTech

• Database (e.g. Access or Filemaker)

• Video Editing (e.g. iMovie or Moviemaker)
Community Helper Fashion Show

• Teacher Web Builder System
Mrs.Tool/Slater's Webpage

• Easy Grade Pro

• Podcasting
Great 1st grade podcasts

• Blogging
Sample Class Blog
Blog for Kids to Connect to Other Kids
Sample Teacher Blog for Kids

How do I get certified?
Sign Up to test out.
If you need to brush up on some of the skills you can attend District Classes or
search for what you need to know on Atomic Learning or
post a comment here to ask a question or find other people to work with on a particular project.
