Collective identification of best practices is another important mechanism for professional dialog. The second round of Technology Leadership Awards were presented in fall 2004. The CITE/JTATE Technology Leadership Awards were established to recognize exemplary uses of technology to teach content in teacher education programs. The Technology Leadership Awards review panel (see appendix) includes editors from the CITE Journal (which includes representation from a broad array of professional associations), as well as reviewers from our sister publication, the Journal of Technology and Teacher Education (JTATE). The primary objective of the Technology Leadership Awards is to identify and encourage innovative uses of technology that prepare teachers to enhance student learning of content (e.g., mathematics, science, English, social studies, etc.). The focus is on instructional applications rather than uses of technology that facilitate administrative tasks in the classroom.
