Principals, New Teachers, and Technology

By Bruce Duncan
Director of Technology
The New Teacher Center at the University of California, Santa Cruz


What can principals expect new teachers to know about technology? What is expected of them during the induction process, and how can principals support new teachers as they work to meet standards for full certification? In this brief, narrated slide show, Bruce Duncan, Director of Technology at the New Teacher Center at the University of California, Santa Cruz, provides answers to these important questions. Bruce's presentation sites specific examples relevant to California's Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment (BTSA) program, but the content will be instructive for principals in any state.
