  • Computer use contributes to every facet of this standard.
  • Computer training for principals is often overlooked. The principal must seek professional development to become aware of modern technology that can benefit his/her school. Principals function as role models when applying computer technology to administrative and managerial tasks.
  • Provides concrete ways school administrators can show competency in five areas of leadership connected to technology use (visionary leadership, digital age learning culture, excellence in professional practice, systemic improvement, and digital citizenship)
  • Four major ways principals use computers, but is certainly not limited to.
  • Stay connected to staff, parents, media, other administrators, stakeholders.
  • I will present how teachers can use computers in the classroom
  • Teachers need to be prepared to meet the following technology standards
  • I. TECHNOLOGY OPERATIONS AND CONCEPTSTeachers need to demonstrate knowledge, skills, and understanding of concepts related to technology, and demonstrate continual growth in technology knowledge and skills to stay side by side of current technologies.II. PLANNING AND DESIGNING LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS AND EXPERIENCES To Plan, teachers need to design appropriate learning opportunities that apply improved-technology instructional strategies to support the different needs of learners, apply current research on teaching and learning with technology when planning, use technology resources and evaluate them for accuracy and appropriateness, and plan strategies to manage student learning in an improved technology environment.III. TEACHING, LEARNING, AND THE CURRICULUMTeachers need to implement curriculum plans that include strategies for applying technology to maximize student learning by facilitating improved-technology experiences that refers to content standards and student technology standards, use technology to support learner-centered strategies that address the diverse needs of students, and apply technology to develop students’ higher order skills and creativity.IV. ASSESSMENT AND EVALUATIONTeachers need to apply technology to facilitate the given of assessments to students assessments by applying technology, using technology resources to collect and analyze data, interpret results, and communicate findings to improve instructional practiceV. PRODUCTIVITY AND PROFESSIONAL PRACTICETeachers need to use technology to improve their professional practice by continually evaluate and reflect on professional practice to make informed decisions regarding the use of technology in support of student learning, apply technology to increase productivity, and use technology to communicate and collaborate with peers, parents, and the larger community in order to nurture student learning.VI. SOCIAL, ETHICAL, LEGAL, AND HUMAN ISSUESTeachers need to understand the social, ethical, legal, and human issues surrounding the use of technology in PK–12 schools by modeling and teaching legal and ethical practice related to technology use, identifying and use technology resources that promotes safe and healthy use of technology resources, facilitating fair access to technology resources for all students. 
  • Teachers need to have some knowledge of Internet technologies. There are five Internet technologies that will be very helpful to teachers.
  • 1. Classroom Management applications: Having applications with wide control over classroom Internet access like NetSupport School will help teachers see what each student is doing on their computers.2. Lecture Capture: Teachers can record their lectures with very little effort, and those lectures can then be available to students to replay to review complex concepts, or for students who couldn’t attend class. 3. Parent Portals: Teachers can use portals like SchoolTool as parent portal. Parents can see their kid’s schedules, teacher contacts, end of term grades, state assessment results from previous years. 4. SaaS (Software-as-a-Service): Teachers can use SaaS to storage what ever they have in their computer. The information saved can be used later on if teachers need it.When SaaS is done right, it offers a wide range of benefits. 5. Skype: This free application makes it easy to connect using webcams, or just audio over the Internet. Free video conferencing capability reaches administrators, teachers, and students. It can also be used for students to give presentations from their home, have guest lecturers, and to establish a connection between their students and students across the country or across the world, classroom to classroom.
  • Teachers need to be aware of the 15 principles to use assistive technology in the classroom.
  • Principle 1: A student-centered team should develop a plan for the assistive technology implementation with specific strategies, individual responsibilities, and proposed timelines. The implementation plan needs to be integrated into the student’s IEP if they have one. Team may include friends, classroom aides, therapists, librarians, or other support people. A team plan insures that everyone has the same goals and expectations for the student’s use of the assistive technology. It helps keep the student, teachers, parents, therapists and administration “on the same page.”Principle 2: Teachers and therapists must have time to plan instruction using the assistive technology in the classroom to better decision making, for example, whether the assistive technology is best suited for practice of a concept or as the best way to present new information to students.Principle 3: The assistive technology and supporting materials should be age-appropriate and motivating to the individual student. 
The following are supporting materials that can be used: enlarged keyboard, image Caption, switch/scanning to access a student interest program, morphing tools, a touch screen, different types of age-appropriate software, use a flat panel touch screen, a program with enlarged text that provides positive auditory feedback.Principle 4: Students and teachers should have time to learn to use the assistive technology before it is introduced into the daily classroom routine. Learn to use Assistive technology such asAlphaSmart, a clear acrylic mount for eye gazing pictures, a head switch to scan for computer access, practice scanning is to use many other computer programs, a mouth stick and touch screen to access a computer program.
  • Principle 5: Assistive Technology should be easily accessible within the classroom.It should be reliable, easy to set up and easy to use. It should be available wherever everyday instruction is taking place, just like any other classroom/school equipment. Assistive technology equipment should be placed on desktops so they are ready for the student to use.Principle 7: Training and technical support must be easily available. 
Teachers need training and support to learn how to use equipment and materials creatively and effectively in the classroom. Students must have support available to learn how to use the assistive technology. Help with troubleshooting should be available when needed. Often technical support comes from other agencies, from vendors who sell the technology or from people outside the school district who are familiar with the assistive technology. Principle 8: Students need support from their classmates.Teachers and therapists should take the time to show friends and classmates that assistive technology is a difference equalizer, not a difference maker. Classmates need help to learn how to interact with a student who uses assistive technology. Principle 9: Students, teachers, therapists and parents need access to others who are using the assistive technology successfully. ‘Each one teach one’ that applies to use of assistive technology. One student will start off with a piece of assistive technology that helps him or her in English class. Then find it works in another subject class, and try it with a student in, Students help each other.
  • Principle 10: The value of support from parents or caregivers cannot be overestimated. Parents have unique insight into the student’s strengths and weaknesses. While it may be unrealistic to expect that parents become “experts” in the use of the assistive technology, reinforcement at home speeds up progress in the classroom. “Integration of assistive technology into the curriculum must be addressed in the IEP.  Principle 11: Regular education staff must have special education support for student expectations, accommodations guidance and material preparation. Principle 12: Support from school and district administrators makes all the difference. The initial expense of fiscal and people resources in the selection, purchase, and preparation of assistive technology is an investment for a student’s future years. Administrators who have had the opportunity to understand this principle are more likely to provide workday time for assistive technology staff to plan, get outside training and integrate assistive technology effectively in the classroom. Principle 13: An assistive technology team coordinator saves time, effort and discouragement. School districts that create this position may use a therapist or a special education teacher who has the knowledge, interest and motivation to support teachers and administrators in integrating technology in the classroom. The assistive technology coordinator can dedicate the time required to finding training, troubleshooting solutions, managing the paperwork necessary for funding or IEP documentation, and working with the school district’s information technology staff.Principle 14: Procedures should be set in place for ongoing evaluation and documentation of assistive technology effectiveness. Ideally, collecting performance data on the student’s use of the assistive technology should be part of the daily routine. Putting these procedures in place early in the process helps in the long run for the IEP, for accountability in general, for supporting standards-based learning and in making future assistive technology decisions.Principle 15: Using assistive technology in settings other than the classroom is a powerful way to provide continuity of learning. 
The same augmentative communication device can be used to order food in a restaurant, communicate with family members at home and shop in the mall. Using voice-activated software for emailing friends helps reinforce the skills needed to produce class work.Providing training and support for family members in the use of assistive technology helps make this possible. The assistive technology itself rarely generates a student’s attention and interest for long, but when it makes a difference in real-life experiences, learning in all arenas is reinforced.
  • Technology can be an extended planning. I will just mention a couple of them.
  • all teachers and students have laptop computers.teachers check voicemail and return students' calls on a special telephone system.students use telephones to find information or speak to experts in subject areas they are studying.all lessons are multidisciplinary.all students have individual learning plans created by teachers., printers, CD-ROMs, laserdiscs, VCRs, video editing machines, camcorders, cable television, online services, and telephones.Teachers assess student learning through portfolios and creative performance tasks. Again, the object is to use real-life approaches to assessment.Whatever the configuration of a school of the future might be, technology is always a huge part of it.
