Professional development for information and communications technology (ICT) can be challenging for many reasons, not the least of which are rapidly changing technologies and the varying levels of ICT competencies within a school. Renata Phelps and Anne Graham developed an ICT professional learning program, Technology Together, to address these challenges. At its core, Technology Together fosters a school-wide culture of collaboration and support while helping individual teachers to develop positive attitudes toward ICT and the confidence they need to try new technologies. It is the shift in attitudes, both schoolwide and from individual teachers, that makes the biggest difference-cultivating a desire for lifelong ICT learning and an environment where teachers support each other with technology integration.

Technology in schools has evolved from the predominance of stand-alone computers to a blend of computer, media, communications, and other forms of technology dominated by the ubiquitous Internet and World Wide Web. In addition, K-12 education has evolved into a much more outcomes-driven enterprise that depends upon technology and data to perform many of its basic functions. This book provides educators with both the theoretical and the practical considerations for planning and implementing technology in todayʹs schools, with an emphasis on the total application of technology including both administrative and instructional uses. Designed for pre-service and in-service educators such as administrators, teachers, technology coordinators, and media specialists, this fifth edition text builds a strong foundation from which educators may provide informed leadership and become agents for realizing the powerful potential of technology in their schools.
