    • What Is Successful Technology Integration? Well-integrated use of technology resources by thoroughly trained teachers makes twenty-first-century learning possible. BY EDUTOPIA STAFF NEW TECHNOLOGIES PRESENTATION – SHEILA MOREAU
    • • In class so far this semester, think of an example of this; an instance where you had to learn, unlearn and relearn? • Independent of content, how did this experience contribute to what you are taking away from this course? How did it change how you think? • Have you ever had to do this in your career? Alvin Toffler is an American writer and futurist, known for his works discussing the digital revolution, communication revolution and technological singularity. Toffler is a former associate editor of Fortune magazine.

    • Example of Criteria for Selecting Technology to Integrate  http://pediatrics.med.miami.edu/documents/DrParker _AppResoureces.pdf SEAN J. SWEENEY, M.S. M.ED., CCC-SLP
    • Levels of Technology Integration  Sparse: Technology is rarely used or available  Basic: Technology is used or available occasionally/often in a lab rather than the classroom. Students are comfortable with one or two tools  Comfortable: Technology is used in the classroom on a fairly regular basis. Students are comfortable with a variety of tools  Seamless: Students employ technology daily in the classroom using a variety of tools to complete assignments and create projects that show a deep understanding of content.
