Extractions: About OTEC Brief News Items FAQ: IT in Education ... References (Annotated) This section focuses specifically on the IT education of preservice and inservice Pre K-12 educators in Oregon. IT in Oregon's Preservice Teacher Education On a nationwide basis, approximately 3/4 of the college work of a preservice teacher is taken outside a school, department, of college of education. Thus, it is very important to identify potential preservice teachers before they enter a teacher education program that is, while they are Pre-Education majors. Good advising for these students can contribute significantly to their success in getting into a teacher education program, graduating from such a program, and then getting a teaching job. Such advising can help point Pre-Education majors toward well taught courses that are making good use of IT. Teacher education programs vary substantially in the nature and extent of IT knowledge and skills required of their students. They vary tremendously in the IT-oriented and IT-using courses that are required and/or available to students. Both of these situations provide opportunities for improving the IT education of students in a preservice teacher education program.

Extractions: Report 1, 1994 Previous section Next section Contents Pathways ... home page Many local school-college efforts are operating across the country. These partnerships principally center around curriculum development (academic alliances), teacher preparation and professional development (clinical or professional development schools), and student support services (early outreach programs that include mentoring or tutorial supports). While the programs are encouraging, the vast majority still operate on the margin, in both schools and postsecondary institutions. Unfortunately, most have yet to be integrated into the structure and programs of the institutions. New Governance Structures. One strategy for coordinating K-12 and higher education systems is to create a governance structure that assigns direct responsibility for such coordination. In 1991, the Maryland Higher Education Commission and the Maryland State Department of Education jointly appointed and currently share a deputy secretary of higher education/deputy superintendent of education. The role of the office is to coordinate and promote the concept of a single continuum of education kindergarten through graduate school. The deputy is responsible for coordinating the complementary interests, programs, and authority of both state agencies for achieving shared state education goals. These responsibilities include the following:

In mediation, You are the decision-maker; the mediator has no authority to make decisions. You determine the issues that need to be addressed; the mediator guides the process and maintains a safe environment. The mediator uses and helps you to use active listening skills. The mediator does not give legal or other professional advice to you. The mediator may help you think of options to consider, possibly with the help and advice of another professional. Mediation is usually private. If not, the reason why is explained before beginning mediation. You have a right to quit mediation at any time.
