Abstract

This research paper will examine six areas. First, it will review several successful technology staff programs to support the concept that staff development does make an impact on the students' learning. Next, the principles that comprise a good staff development program will be examined, followed by an examination of the needs of an adult as a learner. Fourth, after. the teacher has acquired new skills, what insures the transfer of those skills into the classroom integrating technology into the curriculum? The concepts that research has found to be successful in the knowledge transfer will be examined. Fifth, to ensure the technology staff development is successful, assessment of the staff development program must take place. This research paper will examine various effective staff development assessment tools. And finally, it would be remiss to not include the funding needs of technology staff development.
