Teaching for Application: A Model for Assisting Pre-Service Teachers with Technology Integration
Hur, Jung Won; Cullen, Theresa; Brush, Thomas
Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, v18 n1 p161-182 Jan 2010
The purpose of this paper is to introduce a technology integration model designed to assist pre-service teachers to learn meaningful uses of technology in K-12 classrooms. Based on studies in teacher education, learning theory, and technology integration, the authors define five essential characteristics necessary for pre-service teacher education: (a) providing concrete experience, (b) promoting reflection, (c) assisting knowledge application to actual practice, (d) creating communities of learners, and (e) developing Technological Pedagogical and Content Knowledge (TPACK) (Mishra & Koehler, 2006; Thompson & Mishra, 2007-2008). The Situated Technology Integration (SiTI) model was developed based on these characteristics. This paper explains the SiTI model in detail and shares data on its implementation processes.
