The Five Essentials of Technology Facilitators

The Five Essentials of Technology Facilitators (via Ray): “Many school administrators ask themselves the question, “What can I do to help my teachers integrate technology into their daily lesson plans?” Hiring the right person to assist and support the teachers is a step in the right direction.”
