8.2 Use available resources (e.g., colleagues, literature, professional associations) to develop as a reflective professional.

Standard 9: Technology.

Physical education teachers use information technology to enhance learning and to enhance personal and professional productivity.

Outcomes - Teacher candidates will:

9.1 Demonstrate knowledge of current technologies and their application in physical education.

9.2 Design, develop, and implement student learning activities that integrate information technology.

9.3 Use technologies to communicate, network, locate resources, and enhance continuing professional development.

Standard 9: Technology.

Physical education teachers use information technology to enhance learning and to enhance personal and professional productivity.

Outcome Unacceptable Acceptable Target
9.1 Demonstrate knowledge of current technologies and their application in physical education. Teacher candidates possess only a limited knowledge of current technologies and rarely are able to apply them to physical education content and instruction. Teacher candidates possess and adequate knowledge of current technologies and are able to apply these technologies appropriately to physical education content and instruction. Teacher candidates possess an extensive knowledge of current technologies and their application to physical education, as demonstrated by appropriate use in a wide variety of instructional and curricular contexts to facilitate and enhance student learning.
9.2 Design, develop, and implement student learning activities that integrate information technology. Teacher candidates do not use any type of information technology in the design, development, and implementation of student learning activities. Teacher candidates are able to employ several types of information technology in the design, development, and implementation of student learning activities. Teacher candidates are able to effectively employ numerous and varied types of information technology in the design, development, and implementation of student learning activities.
9.3 Use technologies to communicate, network, locate resources, and enhance continuing professional development. Teacher candidates demonstrate a very limited use of technologies to communicate, network, locate resources, and enhance continuing professional development. Teacher candidates demonstrate a sufficient use of technologies to communicate, network, locate resources, and enhance continuing professional development. Teacher candidates demonstrate an extensive use of technologies on a consistent basis to communicate, network, and locate resources for instructional purposes, in addition to facilitating on-going professional development.
