Technology is an ongoing process and is continually changing. It demands constant learning.
When technology is truly integrated into the curriculum, it is transparent and routine. The use of technology tools are most effective when they become an integral part of how the classroom functions.
Technology resources need to be available and professional development must be continuous, if integration is to happen. Educators need to be familiar with and capable of using the vast amount of technology resources available in this 21st century.
The purpose of the following website is meant to assist education leaders in their endeavors to improve learning and teaching by advancing the effective use of technology in PK-12 and higher education. “International Society for Technology in Education”, better known as ISTE sets standards for students, teachers, and administrators.
