Technology in Leadership Series: 21 Things 4 Administrators

For All K-12 Administrators ~ May 22 - August 18, 2017

The purpose of this series is to provide ”Just in Time” training through an online interface for K-12 administrators based on the International Society for Educational Technology Standards for Administrators (ISTE-A). These standards are the basic technology skills every administrator should possess. In the process, administrators will develop their own skills and discover what educators need in order to meet the ISTE Standards for Teachers (ISTE Standards-T) as well.

The ISTE Standards for Administrators define what administrators need to know and be able to do in order to discharge their responsibility as leaders in the effective use of technology in their schools.

ISTE Standards-A for Administrators:

  • Visionary Leadership
  • Digital Age Learning Culture
  • Excellence in Professional Practice
  • Systemic Improvement
  • Digital Citizenship

For more information on ISTE-A Standards, click here

Participants may choose to register for one, some, or all of the five sessions, with a range of 12-60 SCECHs available for completion of coursework.

For each ISTE Standard, learners will participate in a Capstone experience that will include viewing video tutorials, reading and reflecting on academic posts, exploring technology resources through 21 Things 4 Teachers, and sharing in discussions with other participants through online forums. Capstone experiences will follow the 5 E’s model that allows learners to experience common activities, to use and build on prior knowledge and experience, to construct meaning, and to continually assess their understanding of a concept. The 5E’s are:

  • Engage participants by activating prior knowledge, past experiences, or current understandings and interactive experiences
  • Explore the topic
  • Explain or communicate the topic
  • Expand or Elaborate on the learning
  • Evaluate the success of implementation

To earn credit, a Capstone project will be completed for each topic with submission of one or more digital artifacts to demonstrate leadership in application of learning. Participants will also be expected to engage with other educational leaders by reflecting, sharing and responding within course discussion forums to extend transformational thinking and learning.
