Solution<br />Teacher Technology Change Management<br />“To achieve the kinds of technology uses required for 21st-century teaching and learning, we need to help teachers understand how to use technology to facilitate meaningful learning, defined as that which enables students to construct deep and connected knowledge, which can be applied to real situations.”(Ertmer and Ottenbreit-Leftwich, 2010)<br />

  20. 20. What does all this mean?<br />According to Cennamo, Ross, and Ertmer (2010), to achieve technology integration that targets student learning, teachers need knowledge that enables them to:<br /> <br />• Identify which technologies are needed to support specific curricular goals<br /> <br />• Specify how the tools will be used to help students meet and demonstrate those goals<br /> <br />• Enable students to use appropriate technologies in all phases of the learning process including exploration, analysis, and production<br />• Select and use appropriate technologies to address needs, solve problems, and resolve issues related to their own professional practice and growth.(p. 10)<br />
  21. 21. Teacher Technology Change ManagementNot Just Training<br />Specifically, teacher professional development programs should do the following:<br />Align experiences with existing pedagogical beliefs and knowledge<br />Provide examples of other teachers’ successes emphasizing student outcomes<br />Provide support for risk-taking and experimentation<br />Expand the definition of “good teaching” to include technology integration<br />
