ITEM:  Help with Data for Research Study

A doctoral student from Georgia is currently researching the need for
credentializing technology support personnel in K-12 education
environments.  The project will conduct a Delphi study that will ask
selected district-level Technology Directors from participating states
to participate in three rounds of surveys.  For the purposes of this
research study, the student is only interested in support personnel with
a responsibility to support the infrastructure and integration of
technology -- functions which are different from those of an
Instructional Technologist whose responsibility is to help integrate
technology into the curriculum / pedagogy.


The proliferation of technology and its use in the public education
classroom has increased the need for quality technology support
personnel to help with the selection, acquisition, implementation,
maintenance, and training on the use of technological equipment.
Likewise, as the demands of technology use have increased, the
Technology Specialist must now also be aware of trends in educational
pedagogy in order to ensure best practices for the use of technology are
employed in the classroom.  Unfortunately, while the need for quality
Technology Specialists has increased no standard or measure has been
agreed upon to allow for a professional endorsement of this position.
This study will provide a conceptual model for guiding the development
of a professional credential for Technology Specialists employed in
public education in the K-12 sector.


The student is looking for a few people from our state to participate in
the research by taking the surveys.  If you fit the criteria and are
interested in participating, please contact Stan Freeda and he fill
forward your information to the student.
