  2. 2. “ American schools aren’t exactly frozen in time, but considering the pace of change in other areas of life, our public schools tend to feel like throwbacks. Kids spend much of the day as their great-grandparents once did: sitting in rows, listening to teachers lecture, scribbling notes by hand, reading from textbooks that are out of date by the time they are printed.” Time magazine, 2006

  5. 5. According to David Jonassen and his colleagues (1998), technologies that have been developed by instructional designers are often marketed to educators as “validated” and “teacher proof,” removing any meaningful control of the learning process by the learners or the teachers. Technologies should not support learning by attempting to instruct the learners, but rather should be used as knowledge construction tools that students learn with, not from. In this way, learners function as designers, and the computers function as Mindtools for interpreting and organizing their personal knowledge.

  7. 7. >When an instructor uses technology in order to teach students their curriculum in a more exciting way this can be considered technology integration. (e.g. an instructor showing his or her students how to write, film, and edit a video)
  8. 8. >Technology use is rather common. Almost everyone uses some type of technology in their everyday lives. (e.g. using a cell phone or driving a car)
