Multimedia in education
Integrating technology into classroom instruction means more than teaching basic computer skills and software programs in a separate computer class.
Effective tech integration must happen across the curriculum in ways that research shows deepen and enhance the learning process. In particular, it must support four key components of learning: active engagement, participation in groups, frequent interaction and feedback, and connection to real-world experts.
Effective technology integration is achieved when the use of technology is routine and transparent and when technology supports curricular goals.
Technology also changes the way teachers teach, offering educators effective ways to reach different types of learners and assess student understanding through multiple means. It also enhances the relationship between teacher and student.
When technology is effectively integrated into subject areas, teachers grow into roles of adviser, content expert, and coach. Technology helps make teaching and learning more meaningful and fun. Technology Integration | Edutopia
