Administrator Insights and Reflections: Technology Integration in Schools
Berrett, Bryan; Murphy, Jennifer; Sullivan, Jamie
Qualitative Report, v17 n1 p200-221 Jan 2012
There are numerous technology tools that educators utilize to support student learning. Often, technology is mandated from the top down with school administrators' responsible for overseeing the implementation. Innovative technological approaches to learning often meet resistance within schools. The pervasive culture in education is counteractive to technology integration, which may be useful to pedagogy and in the long run may help students deal with the ever growing level of technology present in today's society. Characteristics are identified at two out of four schools as a way of assessing the progress of technology integration and locating individuals who will help move the process forward. This knowledge, combined with competent leadership, makes the difference between success and failure of an innovation implementation. (Contains 2 tables.)
