Collaborative Research Partners: Technology Integration Model That Supports Learning Communities.
Schmidt, Denise; Sasser, Stephanie; Linduska, Steve; Murphy, Vaughn; Grether, Cheryl
This research project examined an innovative technology integration model that includes the design, development, implementation, and assessment of the use and integration of technology by inservice and preservice teachers. Personnel from a school district, an area education agency, and a college of education work collaboratively to provide the support and resources that are necessary to facilitate the exemplary use and integration of technology in elementary classrooms. The proposed three-year model provides a framework that will establish mentoring relationships between preservice and inservice teachers and will create classroom opportunities for them to infuse technology with best teaching practices. This paper describes the purpose of the project and discusses various activities that have occurred during the first year of the project. A literature-based rationale for the need to support inservice and preservice teachers in their use and integration of instructional technology is also provided; areas reviewed include technology integration models, technology support for inservice teachers, and technology in teacher education.
