The technology coordinator can be seen as the orchestrator in the school or district, able to balance technology policies and procedures with device-specific requirements, locate funding and support, and facilitate ongoing training and support. In a time when technology is constantly changing, the technology coordinator adapts and stays abreast of the latest developments. In this new edition of the highly respected Technology Coordinator's Handbook, Max Frazier and co-author Doug Hearrington expand the scope of this practical guide to include: new processes for technical support and technology lifecycle management, considerations for BYOD programs, practical advice on the implementation of cloud computing services, and profiles and job descriptions of technology coordinators and district leaders.
