Technology Use vs. Technology Integration

  1. 1. Technology Use vs. Technology Integration
  2. 2. Technology Use <ul><li>Technology use is when the students are actively working on or running the different technologies that are being implemented into the curriculum for specific purposes such as: doing research for a project, writing papers, etc. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Technology Integration <ul><li>Technology integration is thinking of ways in which to successfully implement different kinds of technology into your curriculum to better help facilitate the learning environment. </li></ul>
  4. 4. References: <ul><li>Leftwich, Anne. “50 ways to integrate technology.” (Sept. 27, 2007) </li></ul>
  5. 5. Is there a difference between technology use vs. technology integration? <ul><li>I believe there is a difference between technology “use” and technology “integration”. Although there is a difference, I think that technology “use” cannot happen unless the technology “integration” is successful. “Integrating” it is just thinking of ways in which the students can “use” it to facilitate their learning. If ways in which to “integrate” it are not thought of, than the “use” of it will never come along either. </li></ul>
