This paper begins with an overview of the existing program which operationalizes the California technology standard for K-12 teachers with the California Technology Assistance Program (CTAP) Region 8 technology proficiencies. It is supplemented by a link to a PowerPoint presentation and demonstrations of the following web sites: 1) the CTAP Region 8 site (http://www.ctap.org/ctc/ ) includes a rubric for three levels of certification and digitized video examples of exhibits at Levels 1 and 2; 2) the California technology standard (http://www.csub.edu/~dgeorgi/contents/techstand.htm ); 3) the PT3 grant that helped coordinate these efforts (www.projecttnt.com ). Next, a description of the process involved in coordinating this certification process with K-12 districts and teacher credential programs. To date, over 500 teachers have been certified including growing a cadre of Level 3 leader/mentors. An interactive discussion on implications for those present will conclude the session.
