The 5 Steps of Effective Technology Integration - Getting Smart by Dave Guymon - edchat, EdTech, education

One could argue that it always has been. But with the proliferation of Internet access in school buildings and the ubiquity of mobile computing devices, educators are taking note and beginning to consider new ways they can include these tools into their classroom instruction. The formalized field of educational technology is still in its infancy. As a result, professional development and training practices are still being refined. As they are teachers in many school districts are choosing to lead their own technology integration through experimental applications with their students and curriculum. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

That a shift toward technology in education is on the rise isn’t what excites many educators in the profession. Encouraging Teacher Technology Use. Technology use in classroom instruction can vary greatly from school to school.

Encouraging Teacher Technology Use

We asked the Education World Tech Team how their schools encourage -- or discourage -- staff technology use. Included: Tips for encouraging staff technology use. TIP model. Resources for Technology Integration. In this section, you will find materials and resources for teaching about how to successfully integrate technology into the classroom, whether you are conducting a two-hour session or class or can spend a day or two on the topic.

Resources for Technology Integration

We believe you will find much here from which you can build a set of experiences tailored to class participants for the purpose of exploring technology integration: More Resources on Technology Integration: Top Case Study Videos on Technology Integration: Technology Implementation in Schools: Key Factors to Consider. New technologies have changed teaching and learning in a number of ways—from graphing calculators to online lesson plans to virtual field trips and simulated dissections, educational technologies can help students access content in new and often exciting ways.

Technology Implementation in Schools: Key Factors to Consider

In fact, one would be hard pressed to find a single school that doesn’t have access to some kind of educational technology. According to surveys, as many as 95% of schools are connected to the Internet; even at the level of the individual classroom, connection is nearly as universal—close to 75% of classrooms in the United States have Internet access (CEO Forum, 2000). Despite this nearly ubiquitous access to computer technology, however, there is a significant gap between the presence of technology and its usage in the classroom. While some type of technology is present in nearly every classroom in the country, it is rarely used to its fullest potential (Royer, 2002). Professional Development Leadership.

The community of teachers, researchers, and others interested in TPACK is diverse and growing.

There are a number of ways to interact with others about TPACK. In this post, we highlight four of the ways – 1) Facebook, 2) Twitter, 3) Mendeley, and 4) sections of the site – in which is involved with social media. If there are other ways you or others are discussing TPACK, we would love to hear about and share them here.

Facebook A poll conducted on asked “Should there be a TPACK Facebook group or page?” Mendeley Mendeley is publication management software in which there is an active group. Twitter There is an active TPACK community on Twitter. In addition to the Facebook group, Twitter community, and the Mendeley group, the questions and answers section on is a good place to ask general questions about TPACK-related topics. Dr. Joshua M.

Future Ready Learning

State and district teams work collaboratively with schools and communities to transform teaching and learning using the power of technology to help drive continuous improvement. We: Assist schools and families with the transition to high-speed access. Empower educators with professional development and support professional learning networks (PLNs). Accelerate progress toward universal student access to quality devices and blended learning opportunities — recognizing that students need the incumbent skills and expanded educational horizons to be college, career and community ready.
