    • Leadership Principles in Technology ITEC 545 Donald Saunders
    • Vision
      • Everyone must have a similar vision of how technology will be used in the school
      • Ex. In Gardiner, Maine Jack Mara had a vision that he shared with other individuals in the school system. “Integrate technology into the curriculum”
    • Planning
      • With technology advancing at such a fast rate, plans must be in place to keep teachers and students up to date
      • Ex. The National Center for Technology Planning (NCTP) has a plethora of information and resources related to technology plans
    • Access
      • To maximize learning and the effectiveness of technology, teachers and students must have access to the technology
      • Ex. The success of a network will depend upon ease of access, flexibility, and affordability (Carlitz & Hastings, 1995).
    • Integration
      • Through workshops and other activities, we will demonstrate how to include technology into every day activities
      • Ex. Lack of professional development is often cited as the most common barrier to effective technology integration (Charp, 1997).
    • Assessment and Evaluation
      • We should take advantage of the capabilities of technology to disseminate and evaluate instruction
      • Examples
      • assessment for instructional planning
      • dynamic assessment
      • progress monitoring
      • curriculum-based measurement
      • electronic portfolios
    • Support
      • There should be staff equipped to assist and update the technology system, and correct any problems that may arise
      • Example
      • At Deer Park Elementary School, there is a full time technology resource teacher and a part time school based technology specialist
    • Professional Development
      • There must be a continuous process to keep faculty up to date
      • Example
      • Associated costs can be high, but the cost of neglecting this important step can be even higher
    • Community Relationships
      • With community support, more advanced technology and assistance can be found
      • Example
      • The Center for Applied Technology and Career Exploration ( CATCE ) in Rocky Mount, VA was funded and supported by the surrounding community
    • Ethical and Legal Issues
      • Discipline should be demonstrated as to the appropriate use of technology
      • Example
      • Internet Acceptable Use Policies vary greatly, but most districts agree the primary purpose of the policy is to support research and instruction.
