As Florida educators strive to meet the NCLB goal for full integration of technology in the curriculum, many face first the task of developing the basic technology skills. With even the most basic of skills, a teacher can begin to incorporate digital technologies in both the delivery of lessons and in student activities within the classroom. Basic technology skills include the ability to responsibly use appropriate technology to communicate, solve problems, and access, manage, integrate, evaluate, and create information to improve learning in all subject areas and to acquire lifelong knowledge and skills in the 21st century.
The INVENTORY OF TEACHER TECHNOLOGY SKILLS offers educators the opportunity to identify the basic skills and/or knowledge that need reinforcement through professional development activities. It can also be used as a pre and/or post test in conjunction with professional development.
