I’ve been thinking about this question the last couple weeks, because I see a system that needs repair. Having our students go to a technology class once every two weeks doesn’t seem to be the most effective way to meet my definition of technology integration.
Technology has been, for the most part, integrated into the daily lives of teachers quite well. We have computers, projectors, document cameras, etc… that are used on a daily basis as part of the normal operating day. The same isn’t true for the students.
In short, my definition of technology integration is when students and teachers seamlessly use technology as a tool to deepen knowledge and share ideas.
