Part II

Administrators play a pivotal role determining how well technology is used in our schools. The Collaborative for Technology Standards for School Administrators (TSSA Collaborative) has developed standards that enable us to move from just acknowledging the importance of administrators to defining the specifics of what administrators need to know and be able to do to optimize the effective use of technology in our schools. Technology Turning Points Part II will focus on the following TSSA standards:

Leadership and Vision - Educational leaders inspire a shared vision for comprehensive integration of technology and foster an environment and culture conducive to the realization of that vision.

Learning and Teaching - Educational leaders ensure that curricular design, instructional strategies, and learning environments integrate appropriate technologies to maximize learning and teaching.

At the conclusion of Part II, administrators will:

  • Better understand the TSSA framework
  • Continue exploring the Leadership and Vision Standard
  • Study the Performance Indicators of the Learning and Teaching Standard
  • Correlate the Learning and Teaching Standard to the Technology Integration Project Planning and Assessment (TIPPA) Framework
  • Evaluate lesson plans using the TIPPA rubric
  • Explore exemplary technology integration lessons from Northside K-12 educators
