Course Assignments:
Technology Purchase Project: This is the major project. You have nothing but “old junk” for
technology in your library. You have decided to request new technology. You may want to
include money or ideas for staff development. Create your budget in Excel, including subtotals
by type of technology requested. In Word, write a letter to your principal, providing the
specifications for your purchases and the rationale for those particular selections. Create a
PowerPoint Presentation for the BOE to convince them of the need to fund your request.
Create an Access database or Excel spreadsheet that includes a list of items and other
relevant information. Create a report that will group and total the items by vendor (preferably
with each vendor on a separate page). (Due June 27).

Media Production Lesson Plan: Create a lesson integrating one of the following media
production resources: Windows Movie Maker, Photo Story or Smartboard. Use the provided
lesson plan template. (Due June 26).

Network Design Analysis: Using the article, “Key Parts of a Network,” analyze and describe
how your school’s network is designed. Type a quick synopsis (one to two paragraphs)
including the following details: (Due June 13)

   1. How is your school/district networked (WAN or LAN – perhaps both)? Explain.

   2. What are components of your school/district network design? (refer to the article for
      help) (firewall, router, ISP, Router, Internet) – (hub, Ethernet, server, printer) – (hub,
      NIC, IP, Workstation)

   3. Give examples of how your school/district’s network design benefits the users in your
      school/district? (examples: common drives for students, staff; portal capabilities;
      password protection; network printing, etc.)

   4. How could you use your knowledge of how your school/district network design works to
      support staff and students? (examples: setting up training for staff; setting up common
      folders for quick and easy user access to information; etc.)
Training Guide: Create a “How To” training guide for a software program or other technology.
It should include screen shot graphics. Steps should be clear and succinct. You may use
Word, PowerPoint, Publisher or other software. (Due June 27)

               F: Less than 108 points

               A penalty of 10% per day will be assessed for late assignments.

Academic Honesty:
A standard of honesty, fairly applied to all students, is essential to a learning environment. Students abridging
a standard of honesty must accept the consequences; penalties are assessed by appropriate classroom
instructor or other designated people. Serious cases may result in discipline at the college or University
(WSU Student Code of Conduct).

Special Needs: ADA: If you have a physical, perceptual, psychiatric/emotional, medical, or learning
disability that may impact your ability to carry out assigned course work, contact the Office of Disability
Services (DS), Grace Wilkie Annex, room 173. (Voice/TDD 978-3309). ODS will review your concerns,
confirm your disability and determine, with you, what accommodations are necessary. All information and
documentation of your disability is confidential and will not be released by DS without your written permission.

Licensure Assessments:
Both the state of Kansas and national accreditation requires that university programs for the preparation of
teachers and other school personnel be performance-based. In particular, this requires that students not only
pass required courses/attain certain GPAs, but also receive satisfactory ratings on certain required
assessments, many of those assessments are embedded within program’s coursework.

One or more of those required assessments occur in this course. A title/description of any assessments and
associated rubrics and passing criteria follows:

Technology Selection Project

Students failing to attain a satisfactory rating on a required assessment may be provided special assistance.
The university is not able, however, to recommend individuals for licensure who fail to attain a satisfactory
rating on required assessments, even though they may receive an acceptable course grade or exceed
minimum GPAs.
                          Assessment 7: Technology Selection Project Rubric
Technology Selection Project is an assessment embedded in CI 727, (Technology in the School Library).
This project requires the candidate to make a professional presentation of a request for new technology for a
library media center and include supporting selection and informational materials, including a budget, rationale
for selections and justification of need. Candidates must also look at the needs of the school as a whole and
use this project to try to improve equitable access to technology for all students.
