“We cannot assume that our schools will naturally drift toward using technology effectively. We must commit ourselves to staying the course and making the changes necessary to reach our goals of educating every child. These are ambitious goals, but they are goals worthy of a great nation such as ours. Together, we can use technology to ensure that no child is left behind.” President George W. Bush
Created by the US Department of Education Drafted in 2004 Intended to encourage technology use by schools, for support and learning, to answer the demands of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 Includes seven actions steps and recommendations for schools to follow to incorporate technology
Strengthen leadership - Educational leaders must be knowledgeable about technology Consider innovative budgeting - Creative budgeting and acquisitions to provide technology Improve teacher training Support e-learning and virtual schools Encourage broadband access - Provide and maintain access for all teachers and students Move toward digital content - Provide training and consider cost effectiveness of digital materials Integrate data systems
Non-profit organization Strives to “provide leadership and service to improve teaching and learning by advancing the effective use of technology in education (ISTE)” Influential advocates for legislative change - No Child Left Behind Act Telecommunications Act - Cyber safety/security regulations - Copyright /fair use guidelines Receives grants and contracts from USDE for technology research and programs Drafted National Education Technology Standards (NETS) for students and teachers
Facilitate and inspire student learning and creativity Design and develop digital learning experiences and assessment Model digital work and learning Promote and model digital citizenship and responsibility Engage in professional growth and leadership
Creativity and innovation - ability to expand knowledge and express using technology Research and information fluency - gather, evaluate, and use information Critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making - use critical thinking skills in research, make informed decisions, and solve problems using technology Digital citizenship - understand legal, social, cultural, and ethical issues of technology and use properly Technology operations and concepts
Created by the Maryland State Department of Education Drafted in 2007 Intended “to ensure that all students and teachers are prepared to use a variety of technologies in the classroom and have access to appropriate technology resources (METP, 4)” Calls for the incorporation of Maryland Teacher Technology Standards (MTTS) to and Maryland Technology Literacy Standards for Students (MTLSS) into all professional development programs
Improve student learning through technology Improve staff’s knowledge and skills to integrate technology into instruction Improve decision making, productivity, and efficiency at all levels of the organization through the use of technology Improve equitable access to appropriate technologies among all stakeholders Improve the instructional uses of technology through research and evaluation
Information access, evaluation, processing, and application - access, evaluate, process, and apply information effectively and efficiently Communication - use technology to communicate and share information Legal, social, and ethical issues - understand legal, social, and ethical issues of technology and use properly Assessment for administration and instruction - use to explore problems and find solutions for educational improvement Integrating technology into the curriculum and instruction - evaluate technologies and incorporate appropriate media and strategies Assistive technology - use assistive technology to augment student learning Professional growth - continue to learn about and apply new technologies
Technology literacy – the ability of an individual, working independently and with others, to responsibly, appropriately and effectively use technology tools to access, manage, integrate, evaluate, create, and communicate information (MSTLC) Six standards (Added to MD Voluntary Curriculum February 2007) Technology systems – ability to competently use Digital citizenship – understand history, ethics, legal, and responsibility of using Technology for learning and collaboration Technology for communication and expression Technology for information use and management – using to locate, gather, organize, and evaluate data Technology for problem solving and decision making

Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA 2004) definition of: Assistive Technology Device - Any item, piece of equipment, or product system, whether acquired commercial off the shelf, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of a child with a disability
An evaluation of the need for assistive technology Purchasing, leasing, or otherwise providing for the acquisition of assistive technology Selecting, designing, fitting, customizing, adapting, applying, maintaining, repairing, or replacing assistive technology devices Coordinating and using other therapies, interventions, or services with assistive technology Training and technical assistance for the child, their family, and professionals involved in the life of the child Include:
Pencil grip to improve a child’s control of a pencil Note card or pointer to help a child follow the lines and words when reading Magnifying glass to improve vision Oversized calculators and calculators that talk Tape recorders to record lectures Electronic dictionaries and spell checkers Low-tech devices use no electronic components and are relatively inexpensive: Mid- tech devices are electronic but inexpensive and require little or no training
Computers with internet service Specialized software for reading, writing, and learning Augmentative communication systems that provide a voice for students who cannot speak High-tech devices are based on computer technology, are more complicated, require training and are more expensive than low or mid- tech devices:
Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA 2004): Defines assistive technology in two parts assistive technology devices and assistive technology services. Requires that assistive technology devices and services necessary for accessing education and educational resources be provided to special education students in Preschool-12. Legislation aimed at preventing discrimination against individuals based on disability. Covers postsecondary education students that are no longer covered under IDEA Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA):
Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504: "No otherwise qualified individual with a disability in the United States... shall solely by reason of her or his disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” Covers all students with disabilities, including medical conditions.
Students have unlimited access to information More children can be integrated into the normal classroom setting Levels the learning field for all students Gives students another way to learn material Acquisition cost Training costs and availability Inappropriate use (internet games, pornography) Maintenance Rapidly improving technology, easily becomes outdated
