Technology competencies for school administrators

Posted in Educational Tech Leadership on 27 - January 2010 at 08:19 PM (14 years ago). 166 views.

I am in my last semester for an administration and supervision at Hunter College, in New York City.  When I finish this program, I will be certified as a school administrator, which is an important component of being a director of technology. All students in this program need to pass the technology competencies in order to graduate. Here are the NETS tech standards for administrators, and here are the tech competencies for Hunter College

I am so happy these standards exist.  That we must pass them to graduate is a good sign for school leaders going forward.  I find the standards are actually decent - now, will administrators use technology to increase student achievement? That is a much more interesting question.
