NTLS 2019

The National Leadership Technology Summit (https://ntls.info) was held in Washington DC Sept. 19-20 at the headquarters of the American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE). As a member of the AACTE Innovation and Technology Committee I was invited to attend and participate in a strand focused on the use of Artificial Intelligence in Teacher Education.

I was also asked to report on outcomes from the strand on TETC cases - program deep, program wide vs technology in a shrinking educational economy. I was able to share several outcomes including initial results of a Q Sort study conducted by myself, Arlene Borthwick, and David Rutledge to find out what teacher education faculty want edtec specialists to know.

Listed below are the outcomes shared at the 2019 NTLS meeting

NTLS Strand Leader

Early in the fall 2019 I was asked to co-lead a strand at the National Technology Leadership Summit (https://ntls.info/). Colleague Teresa Foulger from Arizona State University and I lead a strand titled Teacher education technology competencies cases: Program Deep, program wide vs technology in a shrinking educational economy.

This was an exciting opportunity to engage national leaders in the field of educational technology and teacher education about the various issues impacting infusion of technology throughout teacher education programs across the country.

Over the course of two days leaders explored the various issues and re-committed themselves toward technology integration and infusions within teacher education. Outcomes of the strand included a commitment to research on discovering what teacher education faculty want edtec specialists to know, and continued development of the Teacher Education Technology Competencies.

Action Steps for Addressing the Challenge of Integrating Technology in Teacher Education

The 2019 AACTE I& T Committee Pre-conference symposium focused on bringing to gather teacher education leaders to examine the actions they can take to address the change of infusing technology within teacher education. A highlight of the symposium was a panel of experts including Gary Railsback from CAEP, Andrea Whittaker from EdTPA, and Joseph South from ISTE to discuss how EPP's should address the crosscutting themes of technology infusion. The panel, along with additional breakout sessions, provided attendees with concrete action steps for addressing the issue of program deep & program wide technology infusion. The following link is to the symposium overview presentation.

Summer EdEl Faculty Development

Throughout the summer of 2019 I led five professional development workshops with faculty from the Elementary Education Department to prepare for the implementation of an Apple iPad initiative. During each of the sessions EdEl Faculty engaged with each other and with a variety of technologies in the exploration/critical reflection of existing instructional practices with technology. Throughout the summer faculty explored different frameworks for technology integration including TPACK, SAMR and Triple E. They deconstructed lessons and reimagined them with a new lens. They also utilized the Teacher Education Technology Competencies (TETCs)
