    Supporting Technology Integration for School Leaders

    A text aligned with the Emporia State University graduate course, ED810

    Table of Contents

    There is no one ed tech initiative or tool that works in every situation because schools are unique entities and are part of unique communities. School leaders should focus on four potential uses of technology and find the right "keys" for their unique situation. Those potential uses are: Scaling up quality instruction, such as through prerecorded quality lessons. Facilitating differentiated instruction, through, for example, computer-adaptive learning and live one-on-one tutoring. Expanding opportunities to practice. Increasing learner engagement through videos and games. This book and the course it was created for provide resources and guidance for school leaders, be they classroom teachers, technology/curriculum directors, or building level administrators.

    Dr. Howard Pitler, Associate Professor I earned my Ed.D. from Wichita State University in Educational Administration. Before joining the ESU Department of School Leadership/Middle and Secondary Teacher Education in 2016, I was the Chief Program Officer with McREL International in Denver, CO.I began my teaching career in 1976 in Wichita, Kansas, USD 259 as a high school band and orchestra director. I became a building-level administrator at the elementary level and then the middle level, all in Wichita. I was named a National Distinguished Principal in 1997 and an Apple Distinguished Educator in 1998. I am the author of Using Technology with Classroom Instruction that Works, 2nd ed., Classroom Instruction that Works, 2nd ed., and A Handbook for Classroom Instruction that Works, 2nd ed, all published by ASCD.I have been married for 49 years and have two wonderful kids, both married to equally wonderful people. More importantly, I have three totally amazing and adorable grandsons, ages 10, 8, and 3. The older boys live near me in the Kansas City area and we enjoy volunteering in their school (pre-COVID) and attending various school and sports activities. The little one lives in Dallas and we try to see him at least once a month and FaceTime frequently.When I am not teaching you will find me and my wife riding our Harley. I am also an active volunteer for my congregation and serve as Vice President. I hope you enjoy this course and I look forward to getting to know you, as much as an online course permits.
