Faculty do not "drop" off their classes to me as a tech integration
specialist. I work with the teacher and students with the goal of
making the teachers self-sufficient. My job is really embedded
professional development. I assist the teachers in creating lesson
and help them implement them, but since planning time is hard to get,
I often create lessons and model them (with the teacher) and then the
teacher and I debrief and adjust the lesson.
Teachers can sign out the lab on their own or can ask for me to be
there to assist. I also work directly in their classroom with them.
I have taken on an enrichment class this year, which was great to
experiment with tools such as Scratch, blogs, podcast, open source
software. This is a great sandbox for new tools, which I can then
recommend to content area teachers where applicable and also recommend
student leaders who are knowledable of these tools.
Hope this helps.
