1st Field Experience Activity/Time


Attended GaETC at the bequest of Anna Swafford the PD chair for
Riverwood

PSC/ISTE Standard(s)
1.4 Diffusion of
Innovations & Change
Candidates research,
recommend, and
implement strategies for
initiating and sustaining
technology innovations
and for managing the
change process in schools.
(PSC 1.4/ISTE 1d)

Reflection
(Minimum of 3-4 sentences per question)

1. Briefly describe the field


experience. What did you learn about
technology facilitation and leadership
from completing this field experience?

I was asked to attend GaETC to


learn different strategies and tools
regarding technology integration.
While at the conference I learned
about the various ways in which
different schools are servicing their
varied demographics using
technology.

5.2 Professional Learning


Candidates develop and
implement technologybased professional
learning that aligns to state
and national professional
learning standards,
integrates technology to
support face-to-face and
online components,
models principles of adult
learning, and promotes
best practices in teaching,
learning, and assessment.

2. How did this learning relate to the


knowledge (what must you know),
skills (what must you be able to do)
and dispositions (attitudes, beliefs,
enthusiasm) required of a technology
facilitator or technology leader?
(Refer to the standards you selected in
Part I. Use the language of the PSC
standards in your answer and reflect
on all 3knowledge, skills, and
dispositions.)

(PSC 5.2/ISTE 4b)

A technology coach needs to be able


service schools that may have diverse
students of various cultural, cognitive,
ability, grade, age, intellectual
differences. This can be improved by
establishing a network colleague from
various locations to serve as a brain trust
for improving ones skillset for working
with varied groups that one person may
not have access to.

3. Describe how this field experience


impacted school improvement, faculty
development or student learning at
your school. How can the impact be
assessed? Upon returning from the
conference I was able to review the
notes that I took during the various
seminars. I then selected the areas of the
school where the various strategies could
best impact and designed redelivery
sessions based upon what I learned. I
would like to assess the impact of these
strategies by having teachers model
them for others to learn and apply in
their classroom.
