Technology 101: Eight: Build Teacher Capacity

About this Daily Classroom Special
Technology 101 provides pointers, strategies and suggestions for helping your school design a technology plan that meets the needs of members of your learning community. Technology 101 was written by Peggy Wyns-Madison, a former Teachers Network web mentor.



Eight: Build Teacher Capacity

Once you have identified funding resources to support your technology plan, you must consider how to help the teachers in your building integrate technology into the curriculum. Simply placing the equipment into classrooms, libraries and computer labs will not increase the use of technology. Staff development is a necessary component that must be included in your plan. Today, schools can use a variety of professional development models to help teachers integrate technology into the curriculum.

What do you need to do to build teacher capacity? You can start by viewing the work researched by the MetLife Fellows in Teachers Network Policy Institute. Over the last several years, a group of 35 teachers across the country studied and conducted action research on professional development programs that improve student achievement. Review their policy recommendations for more insight on selecting the best teacher development programs that help teachers grow professionally.

What should you look for when identifying a teacher development model for your school?

Use this handy checklist to plan a successful staff development program.
