International Society for Technology in Education, Eugene, OR.
The purpose of this report is to provide guidance to teacher education institutions that are developing programs in educational computing and technology to assist them in preparing folios for the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) program evaluation. Those institutions with teacher preparation programs resulting in computer and technology literacy endorsement or a master's degree in educational computing and technology leadership that seek NCATE accreditation will, as a precondition to unit accreditation, submit folios to the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). This report provides information on the preparation of folios, the process by which folios are evaluated, and instruction, examples, definitions, and explanations that will assist in folio preparation. Guidelines for the Computer and Technology Literacy program and the Educational Computing and Technology Literacy program are also included. Performance objectives are provided in the program descriptions. (44 references) (DB)
