More Than Inventory: Effective Integration of Instructional Technology To Support Student Learning in K-12 Schools.
Mize, Charles D.; Gibbons, Amy
This paper is a report of three case studies considering the instructional uses of technology in public school classrooms. A level of technological proficiency was determined for each school that participated in the research through the use of a series of surveys, teacher interviews, and observation. Once a level of proficiency was determined for each case, specific strategies used at each school to promote technology integration were evaluated. Data collected and analyzed for each case indicated that strategies for strong technology integration must address three specific areas: the school's vision of integration; the leadership at each school; and the training method used for staff development. Results indicate that public schools that addressed all three areas adequately were able to achieve a higher level of technology integration, with improved acceptance and attitudes towards technology in everyday use by both teachers and students.
