Abstract

The Florida Department of Education developed the Florida Digital Educator (FDE) Program in order to increase the supply of highly qualified teachers. This program is based on research and the best practices in both technology integration and professional development. This year long program includes face-to-face and on-line training, collaboration and mentoring. The FDE program commenced with the four-day face-to-face Summer Institutes. Teachers' responses on the post Perceptions of Computers & Technology survey after the four-day professional development program indicated that the teachers felt significantly more comfortable and prepared to integrate technology into their lessons.
