1 Professional Development Standards William E. Dugger, Jr., DTE Shelli Meade Lisa Delany

2 Features of Nationally-Developed Standards Emphasize a comprehensive, focused, and coherent approach to education. Emphasize content more than curriculum. –Standards for Technological Literacy: Content for the Study of Technology (STL) Recognize the need to define more than what students should know and be able to do. –Advancing Excellence in Technological Literacy: Student Assessment, Professional Development, and Program Standards (AETL) Summarized from Rodger Bybee, BSCS

3 International Technology Education Association’s Technology for All Americans Project Funded by: National Science Foundation (NSF) National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

4 Overview of AETL Along with STL, AETL describes the attributes of the effective study of technology that lead to technological literacy. AETL provides the means for implementing Standards for Technological Literacy (STL) in K–12 laboratory-classrooms. AETL contains three separate but interrelated sets of standards –Student Assessment –Professional Development –Program

5 Professional Development A continuous process of lifelong learning and growth that begins early in life, continues through the undergraduate, pre-service experience, and extends through the in-service years.

6 Professional Development Standards Criteria for use in ensuring the effective and continuous in- service and pre-service education of teachers. Primary audience (users of standards): Professional Development Providers –Teacher Educators –Supervisors –Administrators

7 Organizational Topics 1.Consistency with STL 2.Students as Learners 3.Curricula and Programs 4.Instructional Strategies 5.Learning Environments 6.Continued Professional Growth 7.Pre-Service and In-Service

8 Standards and Guidelines Standards are written statements about what is valued that can be used for making a judgment of quality. Guidelines are specific requirements or enablers that identify what needs to be done in order to meet a standard. The goal is to meet all of the standards in each chapter through the guidelines.

9 Guidelines for meeting Standard PD-1 require that professional development providers consistently prepare teachers to: A. Understand the nature of technology. B. Recognize the relationship between technology and society. Standard PD-1: Professional development will provide teachers with knowledge, abilities, and understanding consistent with Standards for Technological Literacy: Content for the Study of Technology (STL).

10 Guidelines for meeting Standard PD-1 require that professional development providers consistently prepare teachers to: C. Know the attributes of design. D. Develop abilities for a technological world. E. Develop proficiency in the designed world. Standard PD-1 Continued

11 Guidelines for meeting Standard PD-2 require that professional development providers consistently prepare teachers to A.Incorporate student commonality and diversity to enrich learning. B.Provide cognitive, psychomotor, and affective learning opportunities. Standard PD-2: Professional development will provide teachers with educational perspectives on students as learners of technology.

12 Standard PD-2 Continued Guidelines for meeting Standard PD-2 require that professional development providers consistently prepare teachers to: C. Assist students in becoming effective learners. D.Conduct and use research on how students learn technology.

13 Guidelines for meeting Standard PD-3 require that professional development providers consistently prepare teachers to: A. Design and evaluate curricula and programs that enable all students to attain technological literacy. B. Design and evaluate curricula and programs across disciplines. Standard PD-3: Professional development will prepare teachers to design and evaluate technology curricula and programs.

14 Standard PD-3 Continued Guidelines for meeting Standard PD-3 require that professional development providers consistently prepare teachers to: C. Design and evaluate curricula and programs across grade levels. D.Design and evaluate curricula and programs using multiple sources of information.

15 Guidelines for meeting Standard PD-4 require that professional development providers consistently prepare teachers to A. Coordinate instructional strategies with curricula. B. Incorporate education (instructional) technology. C. Utilize student assessment. Standard PD-4: Professional development will prepare teachers to use instructional strategies that enhance technology teaching, student learning, and student assessment.

16 Guidelines for meeting Standard PD-5 require that professional development providers consistently prepare teachers to: A. Design and manage learning environments that operate with sufficient resources. B. Design and manage learning environments that encourage, motivate, and support student learning of technology. C. Design and manage learning environments that accommodate student commonality and diversity. Standard PD-5: Professional development will prepare teachers to design and manage learning environments that promote technological literacy.

17 Standard PD-5 Continued Guidelines for meeting Standard PD-5 require that professional development providers consistently prepare teachers to D. Design and manage learning environments that reinforce student learning and teacher instruction. E. Design and manage learning environments that are safe, appropriately designed, and well maintained. F. Design and manage learning environments that are adaptable.

18 Guidelines for meeting Standard PD-6 require that professional development providers consistently prepare teachers to: A. Assume commitment to self assessment and responsibility for continuous professional growth. B. Establish a personal commitment to ethical behavior within the educational environment as well as in private life. Standard PD-6: Professional development will prepare teachers to be responsible for their own continued professional growth.

19 Standard PD-6 Continued Guidelines for meeting Standard PD-6 require that professional development providers consistently prepare teachers to C. Facilitate collaboration with others. D. Participate in professional organizations. E. Serve as advisors for technology student organizations. F. Provide leadership in education.

20 Guidelines for meeting Standard PD-7 require that professional development providers consistently A. Plan pre-service and in-service education for teachers. B. Model teaching practices that teachers will be expected to use in their laboratory- classrooms. C. Evaluate professional development to assure that the needs of teachers are being met. Standard PD-7: Professional development providers will plan, implement, and evaluate the pre-service and in-service education of teachers.

21 Standard PD-7 Continued Guidelines for meeting Standard PD-7 require that professional development providers consistently D. Support technology teacher preparation programs that are consistent with state/provincial/regional and national/federal accrediting guidelines. E. Provide teacher preparation programs, leading to licensure, that are consistent with AETL and STL. F. Provide in-service activities to enhance teacher understanding of technological content, instruction, and assessment.

22 Standard PD-7 Continued Guidelines for meeting Standard PD-7 require that professional development providers consistently G. Obtain regular funding for in-service professional development opportunities. H. Create and implement mentoring activities at both in-service and pre-service levels.

23 Professional Development Standards The professional development standards are based on Standards for Technological Literacy. They are intended to be implemented in conjunction with STL as well as with the student assessment and program standards included in Advancing Excellence in Technological Literacy.

24 Program Permeability  The vision behind the professional development standards calls on teachers, administrators, and policymakers to perpetuate interchange between elements of the program, including content, professional development, curricula, instruction, student assessment, and the learning environment, in all areas of learning.

25 Technology Program Components

26 Significant Elements of AETL Standards Guidelines Notations Vignettes

27 Notations consist of definitions, tables, quotations, and correlations. Correlations identify a relationship within or between the standards in AETL and STL.

29 Vignettes provide detailed examples of how standards can be put into practice.

30 Vision of STL and AETL The vision of STL and AETL is that all students can and should become technologically literate.

31 “A focused professional development experience led by qualified teachers, mentors, and colleagues is the indispensable foundation for competence and high-quality teaching.” (The National Commission on Mathematics and Science Teaching for the 21 st Century, 2000, p. 18)

32 “High-quality teaching not only encourages students to learn, it insists they learn.” (The National Commission on Mathematics and Science Teaching for the 21 st Century, 2000, p. 18)

33 ITEA Standards Specialists ITEA Standards Specialists are a cadre of professional educators available to conduct workshops and presentations on interpreting and implementing STL and AETL on a cost-recovery basis.
