Abstract: The following article describes a multimedia product developed as a component of a teacher technology training program for K-12 teachers. The goal of the program is to enable teachers to integrate technology successfully into the classroom curriculum. For a teacher to benefit from training s/he needs to know at what level the training should begin. The product is designed to enable the teacher to identify his/her level of technology competencies and to assist in the development of a professional development plan. This will allow participants to work toward accomplishment of the top-level competencies established as guidelines by the Instructional Technology Department of the Georgia State Department of Education.
