Apple Meeting Debrief - Comments included: Meeting was engaging, good ideas from Apple about next steps; will help make technology available to instructors for the student’s benefit; they are offering ways to help students get the technology they need and how to use it, we will continue a conversation with them about applications; identify who will participate in staff development opportunities, which will help determine the software needed to meet the needs of students. Really liked Apple’s idea for an icon (FAFSA application that would lead students through completion of the form).

Cook explained this is a two-part process; 1) Completion of the plan forms is important for funding. 2) When the college begins to work on the Implementation Plan, overlaps will be addressed. The Plan is due in October; college wants to complete a draft by the end of March to start the implementation.
Accreditation/Program Review – Will not infuse the CAS standards into the CPR this year but will include next year.

Moberg shared information from the meeting of the K16 Bridge Partners. The K16 Bridge Program was designed to unite K-12 with community colleges and four-year institutions. The goal is to increase the number of students transitioning to post-secondary institutions by making the k-12 schools an active participant in the process. Cook asked Moberg to share the information with SSPBT Technology sub group for further exploration.
ISP – Has identified technology needs to meet the assessment and orientation requirements of SSSP, so they can be offered online and completed by ISP students before arriving in the summer.
