Technology Integration and Instructional Design

Teaching pre-service and in-service teachers to use technologies in their classrooms begins with their training at the university. Many teacher education programs require students to take a foundational level course in technology education. As these foundational courses are continually revamped to include technologies for various disciplines, teacher education programs find it difficult to establish a consistent platform for preparing students to incorporate instructional design principles with new instructional technology tools. Although research indicates the use of instructional design models to deliver technology-enhanced instruction can lead to effective teaching, there are few models for developing design skills that integrate technology within the education curriculum. This article addresses this research need by focusing on an instructional design model that the authors used to teach pre-service students to plan activities effectively integrating technologies. Here, the authors focus the discussion on how the model was used with a module that specifically addressed instructional design principles, incorporating the integration of technology in lesson planning.
