Activity 1

Applying the information described in the previous section, discuss, and agree with the DAP project team on the questions in the second column of the following table, and then fill in the third column of the table. What are the areas that need immediate improvement?

Look inside each thematic area, at the results from the individual statements forming the section.Are there any major differences in the average response from one statement to another? If so, does that difference surprise you? What might be the underlying cause/s?
Are there any major differences in the response that different user groups give to individual statements, one by one? If so, does that difference surprise you? What might be the underlying cause/s?

Set Priorities And and Action Plan Goals

Having reviewed the results of your school SELFIE WBL report and established a shared understanding among all team members on selected issue/s and related facets, you are now ready to set priorities and action plan goals. 

These priorities and goals should be in line with and complement general priorities defined by your school, and also reflect policy initiatives defined by education authorities at local/regional/national level. In sorting out your school’s priorities and setting its goals, you can also consider specific conditions (e.g., urgency of the matters at hand), constrains (e.g., resources needed, timeframe to carry out all tasks), and the breadth and depth of the intervention your school can feasibly commit itself to complete. Once the overall priorities and goals are defined and agreed by the whole DAP project team, you can start developing the detailed SELFIE WBL-based Action Plan.

For each priority set, one or more goals are to be defined. The goals need to be consistent with the priority, measurable and realistic (SMART), and devoted to achieving improvement or optimization in view of the findings from the previous steps.  Meeting these criteria forms a backbone for your school’s progress from its current status regarding digital technology use to strategies and practices that are more effective and innovative. 

One option for the process of prioritising is the use of the Eisenhower matrix, another one the ICE scoring model (see Additional resources if you are not familiar with them).
