This session aligns with the National Education Technology Standards for Administrators, NETS-A. According to the International Society for Technology Education, ISTE, "The NETS for Administrators enable us to define what administrators need to know and be able to do in order to discharge their responsibility as leaders in the effective use of technology in our schools". In particular this project focuses on:
