Instructional Technology Mentor Program

To effectively utilize instructional technology in the classroom, teachers need to move beyond simply having the knowledge and skills to use the hardware and software available. More importantly, teachers need to understand how technology impacts the teaching and learning process, develop a framework for unit development that takes into account all of the impacts, and most importantly, receive on-going support and assistance from a skilled teacher. This course is designed to equip teachers with the necessary knowledge and skills that will enable them to provide this type of continuous support and assistance to other teachers.

Course Objectives:
The emphasis of this course can be broken down into three areas:

  • Participants will examine best practices using instructional technology to support teaching and learning. Using this knowledge, participants will learn strategies for developing and implementing standards-based, technology-rich curriculum units.
  • Participants will engage in activities to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to mentor (ie. assist, support, encourage & provide feedback) a colleague so that he/she can better utilize instructional technology to support teaching and learning.
  • Participants will develop and maintain a mentoring relationship with one colleague for the entire school year and will then continue as a support person for colleagues.
