Plan to Evaluate Project REAL Technology Literacy Project
This was a Technology Literacy Challenge Grant awarded to the Hamtramck school system by the Michigan Department of Education. The project was designed to create and implement a series of professional development workshops and activities based on state and national standards. This project was based on the Training of Trainers Models. Teachers and media specialists were identified from schools throughout the Hamtramck and Plymouth-Canton districts. Project staff trained the educators during three Saturday sessions. Training provided the participants with technology skills for classroom instruction with exercises in incorporating the Michigan Department of Education Standards and Benchmarks. In turn, those participants were required to train teachers and media specialists from their buildings. The process and outcome evaluation for this survey included documentation of project work, discussion group sessions, and workshop surveys.
