Abstract

This chapter introduces a pedagogically sound experience for teachers and teacher candidates as they prepare or continue to learn about the use of technology for the K-12 classroom. The authors hope that learning about fundamental technology skills will not only inform teachers about how to effectively meet the needs of a diverse student population, but also expand their knowledge base in terms of professional growth. Technology changes the way teachers interact with curriculum and engage in discourse with students and their families, peers, and administrators; therefore, it is essential to address how it can be utilized for management, communication, and instructional purposes in order to enhance the learning environment. This chapter argues that districts need to develop a plan that incorporates technology training for all teachers to create a positive impact on teaching and learning.
