The document is also the assignment if you are taking this for a course or professional development.
Part I Technology Readiness:
Let's begin by finding out what you know about technology. Digital learning and online assessments raise the bar for technology skill readiness. Are you ready to be a tech ready teacher leader? Do you know what skills students will need? There are a variety of different technology skills checklists for online testing of students.
Look at the Michigan K-12 Checklist Technology Skills for Students (or an alternative list your state or country uses) and reflect on where your own skills are, based on the student list(s). Can you do all of them? Complete the self-assessment survey (MI K-12 Checklist) online in Survey Monkey. Your instructor will be able to see the results of this anonymous survey.
Next fill out the chart in the 21t4t Basics document you downloaded from above.
After self-assessing yourself, continue on to Technology Skills.
