Tech in The Elementary Schools

From WBAL comes a report on plans by the school system to hire technology teachers for elementary schools. It's impossible from this story to tell exactly what these teachers will do: Teach Word and Excel? Help classroom teachers integrate technology into their lessons?

Here's how the school system's budget described their role, saying the money...

"Adds 53 technology support teachers in elementary
schools to provide job-embedded professional
development for teachers on the integration of
technology into instruction. Addition of technology
support teachers—along with completion of
elementary media assistant staffing—will also
provide additional planning time for elementary
school teachers."
