Abstract

Abstract: This study is a follow up evaluation on the impact of the T3: Technology Tools for Teaching program. This program is based on a train-the-trainer model of professional development for in-school instruction and support. The study addresses the following questions: (1) What is the impact of the T3 training program on the certified trainers' teaching behaviors? (2) What is the impact of the T3 training program at the participating schools? (3) What types of technology tools are used most often by teachers? (4) What were the challenges and benefits of the T3 training program from the perspective of school administrators and participant teachers? Survey data was collected from trainers and trainees, from administrators, parents and students. Classroom observations were conducted as well as follow up session. This paper provides an overview of the T3 program as well as the main findings and recommendations.
