  1. 1. Technology and Education<br />The Leader’s Role in Classroom Technology<br />
  2. 2. 1969 Quote from the American Association of School Administrators<br />Schools are being asked to contribute more to the resolution of an ever-growing number of complex social, economic and political problems. <br />Technology in the classroom is not a new concept. <br />The questions are the same:<br />how will this benefit my students?<br />how much time will it take<br />am I comfortable using and teaching this?<br />how is this beneficial to the curriculum?<br />
  3. 3. Technology on Campus<br />One should always consider technology as a <br /> vehicle for enhancing education. <br />The focus is shifting to the role of discovery in the<br />learning process and to action generated by the learner <br /> (Perelman, 1992). <br />
  4. 4. Administrator’s role<br />it is critical that administrators form a vision of the role of technology on their campus. <br />Once administrators form a vision, they must articulate that vision to all stakeholders <br />The students ultimately benefit from this “extra work”.<br />
  5. 5. Administrator’s role (continued)<br />What if teachers are hesitant?<br /> The administrator must help those who feel it is too much work or will not benefit the students. <br /> The administrator has not successfully articulated his or her vision.<br />
  6. 6. Focus<br />it is important that administrators focus primarily on the benefits that can come from using technology in ways that support individual and campus growth.<br />A “neat program” does not justify campus-wide implementation.<br />Administrators should explore the benefits to the students and the campus. <br />
  7. 7. Leadership and Vision:<br />I participate in an inclusive district process through which stakeholders formulate a shared vision that clearly defines expectations for technology use. <br />I help develop a collaborative, technology-rich school improvement plan grounded in research and aligned with the district strategic plan.<br />
  8. 8. Learning and Teaching:<br />I help teachers use technology to access, analyze, and interpret student performance data and the results to appropriately design, assess, and modify student instruction.<br />I promote, among faculty and other staff, highly effective practices in technology integration. (Brooks-Young, p.6) <br />
  9. 9. Survey of questions:<br />The questions in the previous two slides are an instrument to help administrators formulate a vision of the role technology plays in the education and professional development of all stakeholders involved. <br />
  10. 10. When administrators create their own ideas of the importance of relevant technology on their campuses, they are better able to communicate that vision to their staff and students.<br />
