Technology Integration: A Call to Action

  1. 1. Technology integration: A CALL TO ACTION Hassanah Blake ELMP 7768 Seton Hall University
  2. 2. A Vision FOR TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATON •  Technology will be seamlessly integrated as an educational tool that enhances the academic curriculum, and never as a replacement to teaching and learning. •  Students will engage in meaningful instruction that allows them to regularly interact with technological tools in ways that enrich their classroom experiences. Blake, H. (2015). Technology for adminstrators. Unpublished manuscript, Seton Hall University.
  3. 3. Integration defined “Integration is when classroom teachers use technology to introduce, reinforce, extend, enrich, assess, and remediate student mastery of curricular targets. INTEGRATION is an INSTRUCTIONAL CHOICE…” Hamilton, B. (2007). IT’S Elementary! Integrating Technology in the Primary Grades. Eugene, OR: International Society For Technology in Education (ISTE).
  4. 4. The ADVANTAGES OF TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION
  5. 5. From the Student’s Perspective Nesbitt, B. (2007, November 28). A vision of k-12 students today. [Video file]. Retrieved from https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=_A-ZVCjfWf8
  6. 6. Technology… Improves Student Achievement “When implemented appropriately, the integration of technology into instruction has positive effects on student achievement.” Brief, I. P. (2008). Technology and Student Achievement- The Indelible Link. National Educational Computing Conference. International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). (2002). Educational technology standards and performance indicators for administrators. National education technology standards for administrators.
  7. 7. Technology… Equips Students with 21st Century Skills “In using technology for instruction and learning, students… also acquire...the ability to communicate, collaborate, analyze, create, innovate, and problem solve.” Brief, I. P. (2008). Technology and Student Achievement- The Indelible Link. National Educational Computing Conference. International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). (2002). Educational technology standards and performance indicators for administrators. National education technology standards for administrators.
  8. 8. rESEARCH FINDINGS In a 2000 study commissioned by the Software and Information Industry Association, Sivin-Kachala and Bialo (2000) reviewed 311 research studies on the effectiveness of technology on student achievement. Their findings revealed positive and consistent patterns when students were engaged in technology-rich environments, including significant gains and achievement in all subject areas, increased achievement in preschool through high school for both regular and special needs students, and improved attitudes toward learning and increased self-esteem. Sivin-Kachala, J. & Bialo, E. (2000). 2000 research report on the effectiveness of technology in schools (7th ed.). Washington, DC: Software and Information Industry Association.
  9. 9. rESEARCH FINDINGS When implemented properly, technology integration has been linked to SIGNIFICANT GAINS in disciplinary action reduction, increasing standardized test scores, dropout rate reduction, and increasing graduation rates. Walsh, K. (2012). 7 key findings for successful technology integrations. EmergingEdTech. Retrieved from http://www.emergingedtech.com/2012/11/7-key-findings-for-successful-education- technology-integrations/
  10. 10. The Role of teachers IN TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION
  11. 11. "Teachers need to INTEGRATE technology SEAMLESSLY into the curriculum instead of viewing it as an add-on, an afterthought, or an event!” Heidi-Hayes Jacobs, Educational Consultant
  12. 12. Technology integration demands… Teachers who: 1.  Recognize the need for change 2.  Are willing to adjust instructional practices 3.  Purposefully design instruction that integrates technological tools to meet curriculum goals “Technology will not have a significant impact on student learning until teachers change the way they teach.” Larry Cuban, Educational Leader Nguyen, S. (2010). Implementing Change and Overcoming Resistance. Leadership, Organization and Psychology, Teams. Zimmerman, J. (2006). Why Some Teachers Resist Change and What Principals Can Do About It. NASSP Bulletin, 238-249.
  13. 13. Levels of Technology integration Hertz, M. (2011). What does “technology integration” mean?. Edutopia. Retrieved from http://www.edutopia.org/blog/meaning-tech-integration- elementary-mary-beth-hertz 1. SPARSE 2. BASIC 3. COMFORTABLE 4. SEAMLESS Technology is rarely used or available. Students rarely use technology to complete assignments or projects. Technology is used or available occasionally/often in a lab rather than the classroom. Students are comfortable with one or two tools and sometimes use these tools to create projects that show understanding of content. Technology is used in the classroom on a fairly regular basis. Students are comfortable with a variety of tools and often use these tools to create projects that show understanding of content. 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.
  14. 14. COMMON BARRIERS TO TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION
  15. 15. STAFF RESISTANCE •  Staff can often display resistance to change efforts. Common reasons for resistance include: •  A failure to recognize a need for change •  Habit – Change often requires teachers to adjust their instructional practice •  Previously Unsuccessful Change Efforts •  Fear of the Unknown •  Disruption of the Sense of Security •  Feelings of Inadequacy (threats to expertise) •  Threats to Power Relationships •  Threats to Existing Social Relationships with Other Staff Members and •  Threats to Resource Allocations Nguyen, S. (2010). Implementing Change and Overcoming Resistance. Leadership, Organization and Psychology, Teams. Zimmerman, J. (2006). Why Some Teachers Resist Change and What Principals Can Do About It. NASSP Bulletin, 238-249.
  16. 16. The Role of SCHOOL leaders IN TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION
  17. 17. Overcoming resistance As the success of initiatives is directly related to the support or nonsupport of educators, school leaders must anticipate resistance and plan for overcoming it in order to affect change. Some methods for dealing with resistance are: 1.  Education & Communication 2.  Participation & Involvement 3.  Facilitation & Support 4.  Negotiation & Agreement Nguyen, S. (2010). Implementing Change and Overcoming Resistance. Leadership, Organization and Psychology, Teams. Zimmerman, J. (2006). Why Some Teachers Resist Change and What Principals Can Do About It. NASSP Bulletin, 238-249.
  18. 18. Planning for success In order for proper technology implementation, school leaders must focus on the following: 1.  Professional Development for Technology Integration 2.  Technology Application Aligned to Curriculum Standards 3.  Regular Technology Integration 4. Technology Integrated Based on Individual Student Needs 5. Collaborative Learning with Technology 6. Project-Based Learning and Real-World Simulations 7. Leadership, Support, and Modeling Brief, I. P. (2008). Technology and Student Achievement- The Indelible Link. National Educational Computing Conference.
