In the Western Cape we call them facilitators – elsewhere they are known by other names, such as instructional technology integrators. They are the people visiting schools, helping teachers to make sense of the technology that is available to them.
The value of these facilitators is not always appreciated. Training sessions are frequently cancelled and at times appointments to meet on a personal basis are not honoured.
The article Technology graveyards: Why schools need instructional technology integrators should make facilitators feel good about themselves and the service they render. And it should make teachers and principals think twice before they dodge their facilitators.
