Fulfilling the Need for a Technology Integration Specialist
T.H.E. Journal Volume 32, Number 3, ISSN 0192-592X
School-based technology specialists go by many names: technology coordinators, technology integration specialists, technology support specialists, instructional technology coordinators, technology mentor teachers, curriculum technology partners, educational technologists, coaches, expert trainers, technology support coordinators, and site-based technology facilitators--to name just a few. Their job descriptions also vary and range from being primarily computer lab teachers to full-time teacher consultants. For the purposes of this article, the authors define technology coordinators as school- or district-based coordinators or directors who have the responsibility of overseeing infrastructure, equipment, purchases and integration. They define a technology integration specialist as a school-based position whose primary concern is empowering teachers to harness the power of technology integration for student learning. This article describes the current role of a technology coordinator.
