Technology integration

  1. 1. Stages of Technology Integration<br />
  2. 2. Four Common Questions<br />What is technology integration and what isn’t it?<br />Where does technology integration happen?<br />What are the barriers to technology integration?<br />What are the stages of technology integration?<br />
  3. 3. Technology integration is not:<br />Taking students to the computer lab once a week for 40 minutes<br />Using the computer as an electronic worksheet<br />Using the computer as a reward station for students who are finished with their other assignments<br />
  4. 4. Technology integration is:<br />Part of the daily activities taking place in the classroom<br />Supporting and extending curriculum objectives in a seamless manner <br /> Engaging students in meaningful learning<br />Enabling students to demonstrate what they have learned in new and creative ways<br />
  5. 5. Traditional vs. Integrated<br />Teacher-oriented<br />Single-sense stimulation<br />Single-path progression<br />Single media<br />Isolated work<br />Information delivery<br />Passive learning<br />Factual, knowledge-based learning<br />Reactive response<br />Isolated, artificial content<br />Student-centered <br />Multi-sensory stimulation<br />Multi-path progression<br />Multi-media<br />Collaborative work<br />Information exchange<br />Active/exploratory/inquiry-based learning<br />Critical thinking and informed decision-making<br />Proactive/planned action<br />Authentic/real-world context<br />
  6. 6. Characteristics of Technology Enhanced Learning Environment<br />Active<br />Constructive<br />Collaborative<br />Intentional<br />Conversational<br />Contextualized<br />Reflexive<br />
  7. 7. Barriers to technology integration:<br />Time <br />Training <br />Resources<br />Support<br />
  8. 8. Time<br />To learn how to use both hardware and software<br />To plan lessons<br />To collaborate with other teachers<br />
  9. 9. Training<br />Lack of local training options <br />Lack of time to attend training<br />
  10. 10. Resources<br />Lack of computers in the classroom<br />Lack of appropriate software to support the curriculum<br />
  11. 11. Support<br />Leadership<br />Financial support<br />On-site technology expert<br />
  12. 12. 5 Stages of technology integration:<br />Entry<br />Adoption<br />Adaptation<br />Appropriation<br />Invention<br />
  13. 13. Entry Stage<br /> Use primarily text-based materials<br />Traditional instruction<br />Teacher-directed activities<br />Problems encountered<br />Discipline<br />Resource management<br />Technical issues<br />
  14. 14. Adoption Phase<br />Concern regarding integrating technology into lesson plan<br />Traditional methods still dominate instruction<br />Technology used to teach students how to use technology<br />Begin to perform basic trouble-shooting on equipment<br />
  15. 15. Adaptation Stage<br />Integration of new technologies into traditional classroom occur<br />Learned to use computer to save time<br />Support issues<br />Flexible schedules<br />Introduce and discuss alternate pedagogies<br />Train staff to use software tools<br />Introduce videodiscs and scanners<br />
  16. 16. Appropriation Stage<br />Personal attitudes toward technology change<br />Understand usefulness of technology<br />More interaction between students is observed<br />Evidence of project-based instruction, collaboration, cooperation and creative schedules<br />
  17. 17. Invention Stage<br />Experiment with new instructional patterns and ways of relating to students<br />See knowledge as a construction process instead of a transfer process<br />Interdisciplinary project-based instruction, team teaching, and individually paced instruction<br />Students work together in collaborative ways<br />
  18. 18. Teachers are being asked to change in two ways:<br />Adopt new teaching tools <br />Computer<br />Internet<br />Change the way they teach their students<br />The role they play in the classroom<br />The way classrooms are physically arranged<br />
  19. 19. Educators Must:<br />Define expectations for technology integration<br />Create a common vision of technology integration <br />Recognize the barriers that will surface<br />Plan to address changes that will occur<br />
  20. 20. Technology integration is a growth process…<br />It takes time!<br />
