UVM has asked if I would share the following  information with you.  See

I have updated my spring course *EDCI 325 Coaching and Leading Technology
Innovation in Schools  *to include leading the way towards meeting new ISTE
Student Standards creating Digital Age Learners.   In this course,
educators will also be working on projects, readings, discussion that help
them build a  professional portfolio that aligns to either ISTE teacher,
administrator, or coaching standards.

I know many of you are doing that already - but why do it alone, when you
can be part of a cadre also working on those goals.   And even if you do
have the edtech endorsement,  why not refresh by taking a fresh look at
your practice using ISTE's latest standards.

*From UVM: *

For the upcoming spring semester, we are offering two online courses
for  educators,
school leaders, and coaches to support leading and  effectively designing
instruction using technology that meets the newly adopted Vermont's
technology standards/ ISTE Standards.  This series of courses can be
applied towards the educational technology specialist endorsement. We
encourage you to share this with any of your colleagues who may be
interested. Learn more and sign up by visiting: UVM Educational Technology

*EDCI 325 Coaching and Leading Technology Innovation in Schools *

This online course is designed for educators and leaders interested in
coaching and leading technology-rich innovation in today's schools. This
includes planning for school and district level, planning and implementing
technology rich innovation strategies, and development and dissemination of
professional development in local, regional, and global venues. Coursework
involves troubleshooting of hardware, software and cloud based systems, as
well as web-based authoring and programming tools. Students explore the
roles that teacher leaders and coaches inhabit, and how these roles can
energize other classroom teachers and build a community of active
participants in innovative, technology-rich programs. Students in this
course will study the means to foster leadership around the planning and
development of goals for their school technology needs. (SPRING)

 *EDFS 320* *Technology, Schooling, and Society*

Explore the influences of technology on schooling and society. Using
sociological, historical, and philosophical frameworks, course participants
will consider ways that the proliferation and use of
information technologies present challenges and opportunities for
teachers, learners, and community members. With a particular focus on
changing roles due to information access, the course examines issues of
equity, cultural diversity, student empowerment, community relationships,
and the transformation of traditional schooling practices. (SPRING 2018 or
SUMMER 2019)
