Technology Assessment for Schools, Leaders, Educators, Students

What are your recommendations for assessing technology from the lens of a school, leader, educator, and student? We are currently looking at this at the NYC DOE and the canned programs that I've seen do not appeal to me. Please share success, warnings, advice.

Thank you.

Wow this is great. What a terrific resource and there are amazing fully developed units within. I also noticed the Teachers TV. Fantastic. It's amazing how much is out there. Thank you for sharing this with me. I have added it to my Tech Assessments page.
Hi Lisa,

The big shift right now that I see is synchronous learning.

I have been using www.Wiziq.com I highly recommend you check it out along with www.authorSTREAM.com

I'm planning a series of yearlong professional development in technology for next year, and am working on a survey to determine participants' skill levels with technology and the technology topics they are most interested in. Rather than creating just a one-shot survey, I'd like to create an assessment that can be used to track the effectiveness of the PD program itself. Do you have any advice on how to go about this?

Here's what I'm thinking so far - use the initial survey to establish the baseline, establish district-wide and school-specific goals based on that information, and then somehow (surveys? rubrics?) track our progress toward those specific goals.

I'd love your input on how to do this effectively - thanks!

Also... have you come across any assessments that are aligned to the revised NET-S standards?
Abby,
I would suggest that you review the new Digital Age survey by Levels of Teaching Innovation (LoTi). LoTi was developed in 1994 by Dr. Chris Moersch. It has been adopted and implemented in numerous school districts and states across the country. The new survey is mapped directly to the ISTE NETS-T standards released at the 2008 NECC. ISTE has their own survey tool as well.
