Technology Gap in K-12
The Division of Corporate Services and Continuing Education at Stark State announces the launch of the School Technology Integration Certification (“STIC”) workshop series, beginning in October 2012. STIC programming is targeted to school administrators, teachers, technology coordinators, and parents who are interested in learning how 21st century technology skills can be safely integrated into classrooms, schools, and homes. Methods of integrating technology into classroom lesson plans, improving communication between parents and schools, as well as using technology to effectively manage school operations are a few of the many objectives which will be discussed throughout the series.

The STIC will be awarded to participants who successfully complete 28 hours of direct instruction time. Training is divided into 18 hours of core instruction and an additional 10 hours in either “Administrative” or “Instruction” focused practicums.
- While only one “concentration” is required for certification, it is encouraged that participants select both “administration” and “instruction” coursework, which would then total 38 hours of total instruction.
- Individuals not wishing to pursue certification may participate by choosing workshops in an a la carte fashion.
