                                          Getting to Know the STaR Chart

The Texas Teacher STaR Chart has been used for the past two years to assist all Texas teachers in self-assessing efforts
to effectively integrate technology across the curriculum. The Texas Teacher STaR Chart Will Help Teachers Answer
Critical Questions:

   1. What is my current educational technology profile in the areas of Teaching and Learning and Educator Preparation
      and Development?
   2. What is my knowledge of online learning, technology resources, instructional support, and planning on my
      campus?
   3. What evidence can be provided to demonstrate my progress in meeting the goals of the Long Range Plan for
      Technology and No Child Left Behind, Title II, Part D?
   4. In what areas can I improve my level of technology integration to ensure the best possible teaching and learning
      for my students?
   5. What are the technology standards required of all beginning teachers and recommended for all current Texas
      teachers?

The chart may be used to:

   1. Assist teachers in determining professional development needs based on a current educational technology profile.
   2. Provide data that feeds into the Texas Campus STaR Chart so that more accurate school information is gained and
      documented.
   3. Determine funding priorities based on teacher and classroom needs.
   4. Provide data that can support the need for grants or other resources.
   5. Help conceptualize the campus or district vision of technology.
   6. Assist campuses in documenting the use of No Child Left Behind, Title II, Part D formula and discretionary funds.
