This guide can be used as an assessment, discussion guide, and planning and decision support resource for deans, department chairs, teacher education faculty, their counterparts in the arts and sciences involved in teacher preparation, and teacher education supervisors, as well as the administrators and other PK?12 school personnel with whom they partner. Like the School Technology and Readiness (STaR) charts created by the CEO Forum in the late 1990s, the guide provides support for: (1) Identifying current technology profiles, setting future goals and benchmarks, and funding priorities; (2) Applying for technology-related or partnership grants (clarifying indicators of readiness, areas of need, and projected strategies); (3) Encouraging the creation of customized assessment tools (e.g., student and faculty surveys and skills assessments); (4) Enhancing partnerships (e.g., identifying how partnerships could support technology integration across the PK?16 spectrum, and how technology could support existing partnerships). This guide offers one appendix: Teacher Preparation Resource Web Sites. [This guide was produced by Learning Point Associates.]
