Fox, Christine; Jones, Rachel
State Educational Technology Directors Association
SETDA and NASTID's "Technology Tools for Schools Resource Guide" provides definitions of key technology components and relevant examples, where appropriate as a glossary for educators. The guide also presents essential implementation and infrastructure considerations that decision makers should think about when implementing technology in schools. Technology enhances administrative, teacher and student capabilities and performance, especially for those students who lack access to technology outside of school. The Guide is organized as follows: (1) School Technology Structure; (2) Classroom Components--Computing Devices; (3) Classroom Components--Hardware; (4) Classroom Components--Content, Courseware, and Creativity Tools; (5) Online Collaboration and Communication Tools; (6) Online Editing Tools; and (7) Essential Implementation Considerations (Technology Planning, IT Support, Digital Citizenship, Data Systems, Professional Development, and Student Assessments). [For the full report, "Leveraging Title I & Title IID: Maximizing the Impact of Technology in Education--A Resource Guide Identifying Technology Tools for Schools," see ED537539.]
