The Digital High School Education Grant program in California offered an opportunity to Carson High School to integrate technology into all subject areas to impact instructional practice. The author conducted a research study that looked at whether the outcomes of the grant were attained. The information provided in this case study is organized around the results of a questionnaire given to the high school faculty members four years after the funding had ceased.
This study uses quantitative and qualitative methodology and data collection methods including surveys and observations. This case study's research and literature review is in the area of impacts of technology grants on curriculum and instructional practice through the design of effective professional development. This study can serve as a resource for thinking about the best way to integrate technology into the curriculum so that it has an impact on student achievement and teacher practice. The technology plan at Carson High School did not include a process for incorporating technology into various subject matter classes. A comprehensive technology plan that carefully considers a professional development design must integrate technology, pedagogy and content.
