Hey all..

This is a great and timely discussion.. We are currently seeking an entity to oversee an evaluation program across the state on Title IID programs.  Part of that work is developing a comprehensive annual survey around questions that the Fed asks.  One of the questions is about the number of teachers at the school level that are technologically literate. This is coming, and I urge all to hold off a little bit,  before going off and creating an independent teacher proficiency.. I am willing to help convene something in early 2010 to bring some of these voices together on this topic. The entity that will be chosen for the evaluation is actually tasked with coming up with a way to help schools determine this.  I think there are a combination of things here that could inform this definition.. our current definition of technology literacy, based on the SETDA definition, the work being done around our Technology GE's, and the new NETS that are now 2 years old.  

Please, hold that thought on creating something immediately, I promise there will be a more formal discussion on this in early 10.  I seek your input on this question and I wish to provide some assistance to you all in determining how you define this at your local level.  

Anyways... there are things going on to address some of your issues that have recently been posted at School IT, I am trying to address some of the areas around policy as well.  

Great conversation.. glad that you are interested .. and I'll keep you posted on the evaluation piece, I have high hopes for some real results coming out of this.  

Thanks..

Peter

You are right!! The problem is deciding and agreeing what that level is in terms of teachers using IT and then how to get  folks to that level.

It seems to me that I heard that Newspapers write on a 7th/8th grade level.  Seems that teachers should have at least this grade level proficiency in technology.

Frank, if we should get this conversation going, it would have to include you!  Thanks for letting us know.  No one has expressed interest in Wave as the format, but if it should happen, it will certainly be discussed here.

Lauren and others interested in Teacher Technology Proficiency:


If you have a discussion about Teacher Technology Proficiency please have it here as well as the Wave. I am interested in joining. Several years ago I collected information from several sources (Milken, enGage, ACOT, CBAM) to develop a developmental model of teacher proficiency using IT in learning situations. At that time not too many folks were interested so I never finished the work - I retired instead!!


Let me know if you get a discussion going.


Peace

In West Rutland, we faced the same question about a year ago... I did some research and concluded 1) "tools" for measuring technology skills are either for research and not skills-based or skills-based and not validated; 2) the "tools" that are around are out-of-date (severely)-- I showed them to high school students and they laughed "who really does that anymore?" was a typical response.

So... I drafted a list of 30 things that I think are "essential skills" for educators, and we have been working from that... the list I put together is on Lulu (http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/30skills/7157349) and also on my web site (http://hackscience.net/30skills/)

I am in the middle of drafting the second edition... I am not sure this is what you are looking for, but it is our solution to a similar problem.

Subject: Teacher Technology Proficiency

Does anyone have technology proficiency requirements of teachers in your school or district?  We are considering a "required" check list of skills or proficiency and hope to update them based on the new NETS-T.  Of course, then we have to decide how to assess these skills, so any information about how your district or school does any formal or informal teacher assessment of tech skills would be appreciated.  Privately/off list is fine.

Thanks in advance.
