  5. 5. Technology <ul><li>“ As we move to more standards-based teacher performance assessment, we need new tools to record and organize evidence of successful teaching, for both practicing professionals and student teachers.” Barrett (2000) </li></ul><ul><li>“ Likely solution” for collecting, storing, and managing text, graphics, sound, and video.
