    • The International Society for Technology in Education states that “students should know and be able to use technology for creativity and innovation; communication and collaboration; research and information fluency; critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making; digital citizenship; and technology operations and concepts.” (Deubel, P. 2007).
    • Students are using technologies in the classroom.
    • Technology use is focused more on students understanding how to use the actual technology.
  • 3.
    • According to the National Forum on Education Standards technology integration is “the incorporation of technology resources and technology-based practices into daily routines, work, and management of schools” (2005, Deubel, P. 2007).
    • Integration enhances students thinking and capabilities.
    • Students are using many forms of technology, but as they use them they are also learning at the same time.
    • Technology needs to be used along side lessons, but should not always be the main focus of the lesson.
  • 4.
    • If you only look at the definition of the two terms it appears that technology use and integration are two different things, but in the classroom the two go hand in hand.
    • In order to integrate technology students need to know how to use the technologies that are available to them, then they can use the technology as a learning tool during lessons.
    • According to Jan Hawkins, “it is increasingly clear that all students can benefit when technology is used intelligently to provide meaningful content and powerful tools for learning” (Hawkins, 1997).
  • 5.
    • Technology can help teachers in many ways! 1.) Communicate with community and teachers using blogs or wikis. 2.) Technology lets students work independently which allows for more small group or individual work time with a teacher. 3.) It saves time!
    • Technology lets students communicate with the world. Programs like GoogleEarth, iEARN, and National Geographic Kids Network that connect children.
    • Our world is a highly technological place today and students need to be better prepared.
    • While the technology is available many teachers are not taking advantage of the materials. Integration and use of technology in school curriculums is critical to our students success!
    • Schools need to check up to the rest of society and update their methods of teaching to the technology “savvy” generations.
