Inquiring Educators Want To Know: TeacherQuests[TM] for Today's Teachers. Professional Growth Series.
Schrock, Kathleen; Frazel, Midge
This book offers answers to many of the common questions that administrators, teachers, library media specialists, students, school board members, parents, and community members have in relation to technology in the schools. The questions and answers are offered in a framework called "TeacherQuest" that addresses: Questioner (who is likely to ask the question); Understanding (in what circumstances the question might be asked); Explanation (in-depth answer to the question); Sources (resources to find out more information on the topic); and Thoughts (some related, extension questions to think about). The book is arranged to align with the "International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Recommended Foundations in Technology for All Teachers," which are included at the beginning of the book. A comprehensive keyword index and index of TeacherQuests listed by ISTE standard are provided at the beginning of the book for easy location of topics. Chapters include: (1) an overview of the TeacherQuest; (2) discussions on basic computer/technology operations and concepts; (3) personal and professional use of technology; (4) application of technology in instruction; and (5) a final chapter on how to use the TeacherQuests. A TeacherQuest template is appended. Includes an index. (AEF)
