Gayla Parks – LMS

My day doesn’t just consist of checking out books to kids – I am constantly meeting the needs of teachers by making sure one has the overhead projector she needs, another has a video projector and the coaxial cable necessary to reach from her computer, that the laptop cart is ready to be wheeled to a classroom, that a math teacher knows where to find a video clip on estimation on United Streaming, and that another math teacher has access to the library computer lab to do a drill-and-practice multiplication exercise. (I did all of this today, by the way).

The technology coordinator/facilitator, as partner:

The district/building technology coordinator and library media specialist must coordinate to provide support and expertise to teachers, students, and administrators in an effort to seamlessly integrate technology skills into the curriculum.

  • collaborates with the LMS in planning long- and short-range technology goals, including budgets for networking, equipment, and resources;

  • acts as a consultant and facilitator for the LMS to incorporate the use of technology to enhance teaching and learning;

  • supports and facilitates the inservice and professional development activities in the area of technology;

  • keeps the equipment and network in operation.
