Chiodi, Kimberley
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Wilmington University (Delaware)
Although extensive efforts have been made to provide staff with the technology tools and professional development to support technology integration into daily classroom learning activities at the Vocational Technical High School, it was unclear whether teachers were making optimal use of these technologies on a regular basis. How best to provide the professional development and ongoing support to enhance technology integration in the vocational high school setting was also not well understood. This Executive Position paper provides an action plan for technology integration in the Vocational Technical High School utilizing what has been learned about current usage at Vocational Technical High School, what has been reported in the empirical literature about fostering technology integration, and best practices from high schools where technology integration has been successful and where student engagement and achievements results have been shown to improve as a result of technology integration both on the part of teachers and students.
