Technology Use Vs Integration

  1. 1. Technology Use vs. Technology Integration Emily Evans
  2. 2. Technology in the Classroom <ul><li>Technology is an extremely important part of the lives of many Americans today </li></ul><ul><li>Much of society relies on the uses of technology in personal and professional lives </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore technology is becoming more and more apparent to today’s classrooms </li></ul><ul><li>It is important for students to become familiar with technology as they enter our techolgically advanced and dependant society </li></ul>
  3. 3. Technology Use <ul><li>Traditionally technology has been used as a tool to “tutor” students and “teach” them how to do something </li></ul><ul><li>This limits students’ interaction with technology and gives control to the computer or machine rather than the student </li></ul><ul><li>In the past technology use was used as a tool in order to assess whether a student is correct and instructing them on what to do to improve </li></ul><ul><li>These enables the technology to “teach” the student </li></ul>
  4. 4. Is this the most effective way? The alternative… Technology Integration…
  5. 5. What Do We Mean by Technology Integration? <ul><li>According to the National Forum on Education Statisics (2005)Technology integration, as “the incorporation of technology resources and technology-based practices into the daily routines, work, and management of schools&quot; </li></ul>
  6. 6. Technology Integration <ul><li>Instead of relying on the technology to “do all the work” “students should learn with and not from the technology” (Jonassen, 1998). </li></ul><ul><li>This encourages students to think about what they know in different ways and provides opportunity for reasoning and abstract thinking </li></ul>
  7. 7. Through Technology Integration Students Should: <ul><li>Create original works to show expression </li></ul><ul><li>Use models and simulation to explore complex issues </li></ul><ul><li>Interact, collaborate, and communicate with others </li></ul><ul><li>Organize, analyize and evaluate information from a variety of media </li></ul><ul><li>Research, solve problems, and make projects using a variety of digital tools </li></ul>
  8. 8. Technology as Mindtools for Meaningful Learning <ul><li>“ Student cannot use technology Mindtools as learning strategies without thinking deeply about what they are studying” (Jonassen, 1998). </li></ul><ul><li>There are several different effective mindtools including: semantic organizational mindtools, databases, semantic networking, spreadsheets, microworlds, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Mindtools do not make learning easier, but encourage the learner to think harder about what they are viewing on a deeper level </li></ul>
  9. 9. Examples of Technology Use <ul><li>In the past students have used traditional computer software program that do not engage their learning </li></ul><ul><li>An example of this: Mavis Beacon </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A program that enables students to electronically learn to type on a keyboard </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This programs expects the student to type letters on a the keyboard at a certain rate and then are assessed on their typing ability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Engaging for a student?....No! </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Examples of Technology Integration <ul><li>Interactive Whiteboards: digital screens that enable both teacher and students to actively visualize a presentation or activity in front of the classroom. The board has the ability to make additions and save documents and presentations for future use </li></ul><ul><li>Inspiration and Kidspiration programs: a software that allows both teachers and student to create graphic organizer used for various activities and technology projects in the classroom </li></ul><ul><li>Engaging…Yes! </li></ul>
