Technology Integration: A Review of the Literature
Franklin, Cheryl A.; Bolick, Cheryl Mason
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference (San Antonio, TX, Mar 2007)
Technology has been viewed as a lodestone for improving student academic performance and for increasing the flexibility of public schools. This review provides a synthesis that addresses the effect of technology on teaching and learning and analyzes these effects through the lens of diffusion theory. This synthesis examines the historical trends of technology, explores policy changes that have influenced technology's role in K-12 curriculum, how these changes have resulted in a new definition of literacy that now includes technological literacy and in new social and cultural dynamics. Third, this review examines the gaps between the vision for technology and its practical realities, concluding with a call for future educational research in technology. (Contains 1 figure.)
