Aug 29 welcome - technology integration Mikey McKillip

Technology Integration defined and how I plan to get started...

Technology Integration – This is the first year that our school has adopted this model of technology instruction. What is Technology Integration?

Technology Integration
Integration is when teachers use technology to introduce, reinforce, extend, enrich, assess, and remediate student mastery of curricular targets. Integration is an instructional choice to incorporate collaboration and deliberate planning. Integration is collaborative by nature and must always include the classroom teacher.

Form more information about Technology Integration – my ideas and notes from:
IT’s Elementary! Integrating Technology in the Primary Grades
ISTE – Boni Hamilton

As this being my first year working officially with Technology Integration, I started the year by asking my staff what they would like to learn with regards to technology. The answers I received varied greatly from teacher to teacher - both in knowledge and experience as well as confidence with current and new applications. To guide teachers, I created a Scope and Sequence of technology skills for individual grade levels as well as a continuum from grades Pre-School thru Grade 5. Both documents were created with ISTE's National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) in mind.
