Hi Susan,
I wonder when the role of "technology integration" shifted to "tech
support" and IT? I don't mean to be pointing at just your job posting but
rather to address the broader issue of the  "technology integration
endorsement" as part of a teacher license, and the fact that it is not a
requirement in schools. There is clearly a difference between "technology
support" and "technology integration," those who have gone through the
state license/endorsement requirements have a much deeper understanding and
knowledge skill than simply knowing how to setup and use devices and apps.
Again, sorry if it seems I'm pointing fingers, but I don't think admin and
others are aware of the difference and the importance of not confusing
those two roles.
