Technology Integration: A Best Practice Perspective
Lesisko, Lee J.; Wright, Robert J.; O'Hern, Brenda
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Eastern Educational Research Association (Savannah, GA, Feb 10-13, 2010)
The technology coordinator has the responsibility of collaborating with school leaders and educators to integrate technology into the curriculum and operations of the school. Not only does this individual have to understand how technology works, but also must determine the best way to infuse it in a school setting. Technology leaders must possess an easygoing personality, understand curriculum, be an effective communicator, and enjoy working with children. The coordinator must be ready to work directly with children and teach complex ideas about technology. The focus of this study was on student learning. This analysis revealed that there is a consistent pattern of increased student learning with regard to curriculum content, as well as measured technology skills over time by young learners taught by technology coordinators. Potential problems include available technology resources for elementary students and competing needs for the computer laboratory area during the school day. The survey instrument is appended.
