Technology Integration

  1. 1. TECHNOLOGY USE VS TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION Lauren Detrick
  2. 2. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE? <ul><li>Technology Use: </li></ul><ul><li>Presenting information to students using technology such as PowerPoint presentations, overhead projectors, etc. While technology use is beneficial in the classroom, it does not offer students the chance to work on the hands-on tasks that require problem solving. 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Technology Integration: </li></ul><ul><li>Allowing the students to USE and INTERACT with technology to further their understanding of a concept. Students need the opportunity to solve problems and manipulate objects and computer programs to further their understanding. 1 </li></ul>Sources: 1 https://oncourse.iu.edu/access/content/group/FA07-BL-EDUC-W401-C6753/Week%205:%20Technology% 20Use%20vs.%20Technology%20Integration/Computers%20as%20Mindtools.pdf
  3. 3. THE IMPORTANCE OF TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION: <ul><li>Students learn most effectively by interacting with their environment and working through tasks that involve manipulating objects 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Students should be required to reflect on and explain their process of completing a task in order to help them completely understand the knowledge they have constructed 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Knowing this, technology integration is vital to allow students these opportunities! </li></ul>Sources: Meaningful Learning (PPT)
