Jessie ShipmanProject 1: Google Forms
 The project that I chose to do was the Google Forms project in which I was creating fiveaudit tools to find out where several key groups of people stood on technology at thebeginning of the planning stages of a technology plan.
Why I did Google Forms:
The majority of the projects that were given as options assume that I am already wellestablished at my school, and that I am working my way into a leadership position.Unfortunately for me, this is just not the case. Not only am I brand new at my school,but I am also going into a school that has no technology at their disposal, and no budgetwith which to begin to bring technology into their school. This is uncharted territory forme. In both my student teaching in the Cherry Creek School District, and in my firstteaching job at Regis Jesuit High School, I was surrounded by abundant technology.Therefore I chose to start small, I chose Google Forms as my project because creatingthese surveys would allow me to get a basis for where key groups of people at myschool were when it comes to technology use, as well as how they felt, philosophicallyabout technology. It would be a different challenge to walk into a group of naysayers,versus walking into a group of people who were highly innovative, but just lackresources. I can
t begin to plan without first knowing where I stand so I started withsurveys in Google Forms.
I first did some brainstorming as to which groups of people were going to be the mostinfluential in whether a technology plan was going to move forward at my school. The
first, and most obvious choice was the teachers. I wanted to know not only where theteachers stood as far as familiarity with technology use, but also if there were anypotential leaders out there that may be interested in forming a technology committeewith me. So I first created a teacher technology survey in which I asked basic questionsabout how often the teachers use technology in their daily lives and in their classrooms.I asked if they were more familiar with PCs or Macs, and I asked about what theirdreams for technology at CCA might look like. My second teacher survey was justputting out my feelers for anybody that may be potentially looking for a leadershipopportunity, or has a vested interest in education and technology and would want to joinme in creating a technology plan and finding a way to raise money to make those planshappen.The second group of people that I thought were vitally important were the students. Iwanted to see where they stood on technology usage, since I know that they are notgetting any exposure at school. Again, I came up with a series of questions to seewhere they are at with technology use, and what their dreams are for using technologyin the classroom.The third, but certainly not the least of the groups, were the parents. In the UniversityModel system the parents are teaching their students on Tuesdays and Thursdays andso their familiarity with technology is key. Not only that, but it is their money that isallowing these students to go to school, and it may come down to their money providingthese technologies.Finally, I wanted to send out a survey to some administrators at other University Model,and small Christian schools in the area or the state just to see where they were at as far
