Districts that have success with technology integration have done so through planning and alignment to district goals. To ensure consistency and equity throughout classrooms, it is important to implement a technology framework that aligns with district goals and allows teachers to integrate technology at the stage they are most comfortable at.
This academy introduces participants to several research-based frameworks that are used with technology integration: SAMR, TPACK, Triple E Framework, and the Four Shifts.
Participants will examine and assess each framework to determine which aligns with their district’s vision and mission. Participants will also be asked to confer with stakeholders to determine if a technology framework is needed and if so create a timeline for implementation which includes how staff will be trained in the framework adopted by the district. Participants should obtain access to their district School Improvement Plan prior to beginning the online academy.
