Do ITRTs Make a Difference?

A recent report from SETDA (State Educational Technology Directors Association) found that we do!

“In 2006, the Virginia Department of Education commissioned a study that examined the relationship between the instructional technology resource teacher program and levels of technology practiced in schools, impact of the instructional technology resource teacher program on classrooms and teachers, and impact of the instructional technology resource teacher program on students. The results indicate major improvements occurred in 32 % of the subject areas tested by the Standards of Learning tests, most dramatically in English reading. “

If you’d like to see a summary of the report for yourself (which also shows programs other states are implementing), click here.

A big, “Thanks!” to Brian McKee in Portsmouth for sharing the info on his blog.
