Why should I integrate technology?
Technology, when used for strategic purposes in educational settings, can have a positive impact on the nature of the classroom and student achievement (Cramer, 2007). Technology can create an interactive, enjoyable learning environment, assist diverse learners, collect and store information for data-driven decision making, enhance collaboration and improve methods of accountability (Valdez, 2000, p.22).
In order for today’s students to produce the great ideas of tomorrow, we must teach them how to be life long learners. Constructivist strategies support learning environments conducive to technology integration. When teachers facilitate student engagement with content, effective pedagogy and technology, students take responsibility for their own learning. Knowledge is no longer isolated and disseminated from experts to learners. It is ever changing and growing;and as a result knowledge is created by learners. Consequently, in order for young people to develop new ideas and build knowledge, we must take a closer look at the recent research surrounding contemporary frameworks and models to support technology integration.
Teachers explain how they will integrate technology "today."
