Summary or Abstract : Technology plays a crucial role in the learning of 21 st century students. Therefore, educators must integrate modern technology into classroom instruction. In order for educators to learn current technology skills and strategies, effective professional development programs targeting educational technology must be developed. The purpose of this research study was to evaluate the impact that an educational technology professional development program had on teachers' levels of technology integration in their classrooms and on their students' achievement. The participants were 102 PK-12 public educators in a rural Southeastern region of the United States. A 2 X 2 ANOVA showed that the treatment group participants who received the intervention of the program significantly increased their levels of technology integration whereas the control group participants did not. Results of an independent t test indicated that treatment group participants' students scored higher on an academic instrument than those enrolled in control group participants' classes. Focus group interview data supported both of these results. These findings indicated that the staff development initiative may potentially be effective in increasing educators' technology integration levels and student achievement. The study results have potential social change implications in the way that instruction is delivered to 21 st century learners. Use of technology as a teaching, learning, and leading tool in the classroom can transform the way teachers meet the learning needs of the 21 st century student. Not only will teachers be educating learners for their post graduate lives, but they will also be cultivating individuals who are ready to embrace and participate in a technology driven 21 st century society..
