Home • National Art Education Association Guide to Educational Technology Major, Jobs, and Careers Advancements in technology are changing education at all points on the spectrum, from kindergarten all the way to the doctoral level, and dedicated educational technology jobs are popping up to help institutions make better use of the emerging resources. Educational technology is a fairly new discipline, however, and its methods and goals may take a bit of explaining. On an annual basis, the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA) conducts a technology and e-learning survey designed to gather data on technology use in education and promote the best possible uses of instructional tech. Here are the seven primary goals of education technology, as the survey lists them, along with a brief note about each: Help meet the personalized needs of all students.

Harry & Rosemary Wong: Effective Teaching The Lasting Impact of Instructional Coaching Although this article is about the coach, David Ginsburg, it is more about the word that describes what type of coach he is—an instructional coach. How teachers instruct will determine how well and how much students learn. Instruction is defined by Robert Marzano as, “It is what gets taught.” Cause-Effect Coaching David uses a “cause-effect coaching” method. The purpose is to show the teacher that the students may not be the cause of why the students are not learning. True, many kids come from a poverty-stricken and dysfunctional family, but that is not something a teacher can change or do anything about. The cause-effect concept was shown in the original work on classroom management by Jacob Kounin. David says, “School leaders and teachers must always examine how their actions or inactions may be creating barriers or creating enhancements to learning.” It’s what a teacher does that affects student learning and that is what David coaches.
