Abstract

Improving instruction by improving the use of data in decision-making incorporating I-Pads for classroom observations is the focus of this case study research effort in-progress (2010-2011). The investigation is empirically connecting classroom observational data (retrieved by external trained observers using I-Pad technology) to student cognitive/affective data and to teacher professional development data using a Relational Feedback Intervention (RFI) Database Model. The RFI Model utilizes Multiple Regression Analysis to determine the effectiveness of the use of technology in instruction on student outcomes, technology acceptance levels, and technology integration in a high school setting. The RFI Model provides formative and summative feedback regarding technology integration in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), Social Sciences (English, Humanities, and Related Subjects), and Electives (Art, Music, Speech, Physical Education, and Related Subjects). Results and implications of the RFI Model for improving instruction will be presented.
