The 21st Century School Counselor:
"Computer technology has affected virtually all aspects of life, including the way people communicate ideas, conduct business, and provide education" (Van Horn & Myrick, 2001).
"Computer technology can significantly affect the work of counselors in the areas of information retrieval and dissemination, distance learning, college and career exploration, counseling intervention, networking and support systems, and training and supervision" (Van Horn & Myrick, 2001).
"Advances in computer technology provide exciting possibilities for the school counseling profession. However, this technology also brings with it several challenges and ethical issues that need to be addressed. Some concerns for school counselors include lack of confidentiality, limited training, and inequality of resources" (Van Horn & Myrick, 2001).
"In our crystal ball, 21st-century school counselors are in a powerful and pivotal position to effectively demonstrate how the complement of academic rigor and affective development is the formula to student success" (Stone & Dahir, 2006).
"School counseling technology then, as a corollary could be conceived as the study and ethical practice of facilitating the academic, personal/social and career development of students by creating, using, and managing appropriate technological processes and resources" (Sabella, Poynton & Isaac, 2010).
