  1. 1. Technology Facilitation and Leadership What Every K-12 Leader Should Know and Be Able to Do Sal DeAngelo, MBA, CAS Bethlehem Central School District Director of Technology College of Saint Rose Presentation July 22, 2010
  2. 2. Sal DeAngelo A little about who I am I have spent over 26 years coordinating and managing instructional technology programs in an educational environment. I have developed and supported the infrastructure for bringing classrooms students and staff into the 21st century and beyond. I am experienced in the design, specification, and installation of instructional technology equipment and software to enable partnering and enriched curriculum delivery. I am committed to ongoing professional development in my field to better serve the needs of students, staff, parents and the community at large. “Leadership is the process of creating and sustaining a culture where everyone works together in achieving common goals, not because they have to but because they want to.”
  3. 3. Sal DeAngelo Some of my personal beliefs and Educational Technology Vision  Our strategic intent should be to maximize each student’s growth and individual success by meeting each student where he or she is, and empowering them to develop their own personal learning process  Studies have shown that students understand and retain knowledge best when they can apply it in a practical, relevant setting. We must strive to provide this proper setting for them. Technology and Web 2.0 has profoundly changed the way we all work, collaborate and communicate and our relationship with information information.  “Technology has the potential to transform education when integrated with emerging models of teaching and learning.” [NAESP, [NAESP 2006] - we need leverage professional development to ensure the staff has the capacity to achieve this goal  Learning with technology should not be about the technology itself but about the learning that can be facilitated through it  Maximize learning through the blending of various technologies
