Extractions: This Website was developed for the Alabama Department of Education by the Online Academy at the University of Kansas as a resource for institutions of higher education and local education agencies in Alabama as they implement the Academy modules. The resources include online modules; presentations developed by the Academy for faculty and technical staff responsible for implementation; opportunities for discussion among staff of participating institutions and agencies; and resource material shared by instructors or the Academy staff. The intent is to use this site to facilitate the efforts of pre-service and in-service teacher education programs in implementing the Academy modules. The site will be expanded as needed services and resources are identified as being helpful to institutions of higher education and school districts in Alabama as they implement the Academy modules. The Online Academy is engaged in the business of providing e-learning solutions for the 21st century. The Academy develops Web-based modules and other technology innovations for moving validated educational research into actual classroom practice. The existing resources are designed to empower teachers and teacher educators in the areas of Reading, Technology, and Positive Behavioral Support. New content areas are being developed as needs are identified.

Extractions: "For our Learn and Serve project, the students wrote children's books and magazines. After the books and magazines were completed, we took them to one of the local elementary schools to read to the younger students. The middle school students learn how good it feels to help someone else and also how difficult it is to teach students new things." "In the Birmingham Public Schools, the impact of this program is far reaching. AmeriCorps members serve as tutors in the elementary schools, which increases the proficiency skills of students and increases their test taking skills. Many students would not be able to master basic skills or pass required skills tests without the extra help and support of this program. Educators and principals view it as God-sent."

Extractions: SREB Jennifer Burke August 1998 Technology Standards for Teachers To be effective, technology certification for educators needs to be part of formal education policy and a required element of school and teacher evaluations. . . . Educators need a system of technology training and certification. Council on Basic Education, 1998. The rapid increase in the availability of computers and other technology in schools represents a significant investment, and state leaders are concerned about results. To what extent does technology use result in improved student learning? Research has found that teacher skill in using technology is a major factor in improving student learning with technology. Teachers must know not only how to use technology but also when and why to use it. Teacher technology standards identify essential skills teachers need for effective use of computers and other electronic equipment in schools today. State teacher licensure and certification has not kept pace with rapid changes in technology and teaching. Linking technology skills assessments to licensing requirements helps ensure that teachers have the skills to support and guide students and to increase student learning using technology.
