12 Ways To Integrate (Not Just Use) Technology In Education | Leadership | Scoop.it
If you run a classroom, school, district, or country, you need to know how to properly integrate technology in education. This should help.
Molly Large's insight:

Great descriptive language in almost a checklist form to distintuish between "use" of technology and meaningful "integration" of technology. The "what it looks like" language is extremely helpful!

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 18, 2015 9:05 AM

There is question around current evaluation practices and whether the observations done by principals are the most effective motivator in producing good teaching results. There is very evidence to suggest that incentive pay  or performance based rewards, based on value- add-ons, actually further develop a teacher's skills. Additionally, the contemporary principal, in reality, has very limited time to make teacher observations relevant and meaningful in practice because a good portion of their time is spent on discipline, and operational "stuff". Although observations are a required part of teacher evaluations,  principals need  find other ways to help teacher grow in their profession. One important way is to engage teachers in collaborative cultures, like those associated with professional learning communities, where they can focus on developing instructional practices that improve student learning.
