Overview

In this session you will learn how the NC Professional Standards can be used in support of teachers' planning, implementing, and assessing of Information and Technology Essential Standards into instructional activities. The purpose of the ITF and SLMC Professional Standards is to guide the curriculum development and instruction in North Carolina graduate programs in Information & Library Science and Instructional Technology. The Standards set expectations by describing what new graduates should know and be able to do. These Professional Standards provide a foundation for the development of a new Evaluation Instrument for library media and instructional technology educators. We will also explore the NC Professional Teaching Standards and make connections between media and technology roles to assist teachers in collaborating, supporting, and differentiating ITES into instruction.

Goals

We will look at how the NC Professional Standards demonstrate the importance of integrating 21st century information, skills, and content. This session will promote an understanding of the goals of the NC Professional Standards with strategies for media and technology program advocacy and for collaboration among media and instructional technology personnel and teachers. We will also examine how to find, evaluate, and use data to inform instruction.
