Henriquez, Andres; Riconscente, Michelle
This report summarizes findings from a survey of 183 of the 314 elementary, middle, and high school educators that participated in the pilot year implementation of the Rhode Island Teacher Training Initiative (RITTI). All RITTI educators received 60 hours of training over a 2-week period focused on using a variety of software applications, Internet tools, and various Internet search engines. Participants were asked to bring an instructional unit of practice to the training. The goal of this process was to give teachers hands-on experience in how to incorporate technology into existing curriculum units. Respondents to this survey reported dramatic increases in their confidence with and ability to use a variety of software applications and resources as a result of their participation in RITTI. (ASK)
