Seeking Technology Standards For Teachers

Just as there is a problematic digital divide among regions of the U.S., where some students have 24/7 access to information while others have no access, there is a problematic division between teacher's understanding of and use of technology for learning. I am talking, here, about situations where technology would actually be significantly more beneficial than traditional means of learning.

It seems we may be approaching a point where technology standards ought to be developed for teachers. Are there districts/administrators/school boards addressing this problem? Are there examples that can be shared here? Please post..

Our district is also looking at this issue. We are planning on coming up with technology curriculum so that when all students in our huge district enter middle school, they have been exposed to similiar web and technology tools. Right now we do have an 2 integrators that meet with every 2-5 classroom in the district for 40 minutes twice a month. Some classroom teachers run with it and work with the integrator on lessons. Other let the integrator do all of the work and treat it more like a special (music, art, and gym) that they have to be there to help with behaviors. I think a clear curriculum that the classroom teacher is responcible for will help.
