Abstract: The director of technology integration at the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) has assigned Aries Cobb, the lead professional development (PD) facilitator for technology integration, to use the problem-based learning model to continue the Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) project. Cobb, a grant writer, staff developer, and principal investigator of EETT, has created a new learning experience entitled ePortfolio: Action Research Team Professional Development Plan for the 2008-2009 school year for 25 teaching professionals at a targeted school in the CMSD. The targeted school has not met Academic Yearly Progress (AYP) for 3 or more years. The problem-based learning model is used for each school that has a technology integration program that is not working effectively in an effort to address the problem by examining teacher pedagogical beliefs and classroom technology use to enhance student technological literacy and reading achievement. A description and a PD design are outlined with a literature review for PD suggestions for the future.
