Edtech 554: Managing Technology Integration in Schools

This class explores strategies for planning and implementing technology integration at an organizational level, including examination of larger scale professional development models. The course focuses on developing skills for taking a leadership role in district technology use planning, implementation, and assessment.

The Course Objectives are:

  1. Examine the leadership role of the technology director
  2. Analyze, evaluate and become familiar with a district’s technology plan by articulating the vision, goals and objectives
  3. Develop the skills and knowledge to support data-driven decision making to improve instruction
  4. Recognize and discuss issues regarding digital equality in the classroom
  5. Collaboratively construct a software rubric
  6. Plan and design a staff development workshop that encourages teachers to integrate technology into the classroom to improve student learning

I am excited about planning a professional development activity for this course, as I am most excited about the prospect of being able to share valuable technologies with other teachers.
