In June 2005, T.H.E. Journal ran a story on the " 20 Technology Skills Every Educator Should Have." Written by Laura Turner, a computer technology instructor at Black Hills State University (BHSU), the recommendations in the article were based on her experiences teaching in the college of education at BHSU.
Year in and year out, that story is among the most read on our site, even though the advice is almost nine years old — which, in technology years, is about two lifetimes. Curious to see how much the necessary skill set had changed over the years, we decided to do an update on Turner's article.
