Overview

Preparing effective technology facilitators and leaders is an increasingly important mission for school districts and colleges of education. To meet the growing need for highly-qualified educational technologists, ISTE worked with the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) to develop a set of performance assessment standards for initial and advanced endorsements in the areas of Technology Facilitation and Technology Leadership. ISTE’s Technology Facilitation and Leadership Standards: What Every K–12 Leader Should Know and Be Able to Do is an inviting and surprisingly easy-to-follow guide for any educator, practicing or preservice, who wants to be an effective technology facilitator and/or educational leader.

The standards in the book provide a comprehensive portrait, complete with sample performance tasks, of what technology facilitators and leaders must do to ensure successful technology use in classrooms. Scenarios, case studies, discussion questions, and resources related to implementing the standards are also provided. With each chapter dedicated to a single standard, the authors provide insight, advice, and tips for every level of facilitator and school leader.

Whether you intend to pursue formal accreditation through one of the many schools of education that have adopted these standards, or you simply want to increase your skills and competencies, this practical step-by-step guide provides everything you need not only to understand the standards, but to meet and exceed them. Accessible to preservice educators and with hands-on practical lessons for currently practicing professionals, this book can also serve as a template for superintendents, principals, and cabinet-level policy makers as they create and define the job descriptions of the next generation of educators. Teacher educators will find valuable perspectives on course content and ample resources to support student learning.
