Step-By-Step Professional Development in Technology
Meltzer, Sarah T.
Eye on Education
Don't train your teachers in instructional technology without reading this resource-packed book from Sarah T. Meltzer. Meltzer presents easy-to-follow guidelines for bringing about effective professional development in technology from start to finish. She takes you step-by-step through the process of planning, implementing, and managing professional development opportunities. The book is also filled with handy, practical tools and resources, such as: (1) pre-planning worksheets; (2) needs assessment surveys; (3) long- and short-term technology plans; (4) technology inventory forms; (5) training schedule templates and more. Meltzer provides filled-out examples of those forms, so you can see how to complete them. She also offers blank versions for your own use. In addition, each chapter concludes with a checklist to help you keep track of the steps you take as you make professional development in technology a reality--and a success--in your school or district.
