Thanks! I have looked at this and other published recommendations, but as
you know administrators want information about what's "really being done"
rather than the "ideals". This seems particularly true as VT schools begin
to hire "Ed tech Specialists" rather than "all-in-one" staff that may have
been sufficient in the past.
When will administrators begin to realize that recommendations like those of
ISTE are research based and widely accepted?
