Analyzing Teacher Preparation To Integrate Technology in Classroom Instruction.
Mills, Steven C.
What is not fully understood about educational technology is how to transform computer technology into a powerful pedagogical tool. One way to address instructional issues associated with integrating computer technology in classrooms is to analyze educational best practices associated with technology integration in classrooms. Technology standards for teachers were established, and a tool to examine the quality of computer technology integration was developed and validated for a school district undertaking a district-wide technology professional development initiative. The technology standards on which the professional development model was established were formulated by synthesizing national, state, and local technology standards and then identifying educational best practices that supported these standards within the local context. Then a pedagogy was reinforced that enhanced and improved teaching and learning using technology tools and resources through performance assessment and financial incentives. Pattern analysis procedures demonstrated that the measure was appropriate for determining the extent of technology integration and for identifying appropriate technology training themes.
