Integrating Technology<br />“ … observers sometimes expect technology integration in the classroom to be a spontaneous process … creating an explosion of expanded opportunities for teaching and learning. Unfortunately, this is almost never the case. Students are usually eager to use the computer, but teachers are often hesitant and unsure of ways to effectively use it within instruction. We tend to teach the way we were taught, and few of today’s classroom teachers had opportunities to learn in a "technology infused" setting. Technology integration is a process, involving not only the physical acquisition of tools like computer hardware and software, but also important changes in the ways educators think about their roles in the classroom and student roles.” <br /><ul><li>http://www.wtvi.com/teks/03_04_articles/tla_lessons.html</li></li></ul><li>What does it mean???<br />A Computer Lab IS NOT Technology INTEGRATION!!!<br />A Computer Lab IS:<br /><ul><li>Specific computer instruction
“The scheduled lab concept is based on the idea that a computer teacher can and should provide instruction about technology to students independent of other classroom activities. This concept and model is still viable and needed in many contexts.”
