Educational leaders ensure that curricular design, instructional strategies, and learning environments integrate appropriate technologies to maximize learning and teaching.
Facilitate the use of technologies to support and enhance instructional methods that develop higher-level thinking, decision-making, and problem solving skills.
Provide for and ensure that faculty and staff take advantage of quality professional development learning opportunities for improved learning and teaching with technology.
Technology Standards for School Administrators: Standard II
“ Teachers who learn to use technology while exploring relevant mathematics topics are more likely to see its potential benefits and use it in their subsequent teaching.”
CAS and SRL in mathematic instruction outperformed students in algebraic thinking and regulated their learning more effectively that students who received only instruction by CAS
“ Teachers’ effective use of technology to enhance their students’ learning opportunities in mathematics classrooms depends on the didactic possibilities linked with its use.”
