I am meeting with a small team of teachers at my school this week to discuss the 'creation' of technology standards for the school. My idea is to develop a set of skills/standards for the school so that we can strategically plan a technology curriculum to be implemented across the school. Currently, the school has a computer teacher that sees the students 30 minutes a week and there is really no classroom technology integration happening. The school has SMART boards and a computer lab. What I want to get the teachers to think about is that technology can be a part of their classroom as well. The goal for this year is to create those standards/skills that the students will develop during their time at the school and for teachers to plan to implement some or all of these standards starting next year while they are planning their curriculum.
Any ideas on what I can share with them? I already have a few documents with examples of standards other schools have created and I was thinking of showing them some videos and sharing some information on the importance of technology literacy.
