I recently received this e-mail from a principal:
Our district has always hired teachers to be in charge of the technology in their respective buildings. Because we are growing rapidly, these tech specialists are slowly moving out of the classroom and focusing solely on technology. However, we are still required to evaluate them as teachers because they are on a teacher contract.
I was hoping you could direct me to some resources that would help me create an appropriate evaluation tool. Obviously, the form used in a classroom setting is no longer functional for these individuals. I would appreciate any help you could provide. Thank you.
This is not the world that I live in, but I know that technology integrationists – the folks that roll up their sleeves and work side-by-side with teachers and students to help them meaningfully integrate digital technologies into their classroom work – are critically important to the success of most school technology initiatives.
Do any of you have resources for evaluation of technology integrationists that you can share? Thanks in advance!
