Technology Use vs. Technology Integration By: Jackie Pyrz W401 Gamma Group
What is Technology Integration? <ul><li>Defined by the National Forum on Education, “is the incorporation of technology recourses and technology-based practices into the daily routines, work, and management of schools.” (Part 8) </li></ul><ul><li>“ Educators and students incorporate suitable technology to engage in active participation, exploration, and research.” (Dr. Terry Bergeson) </li></ul><ul><li>“ When teachers integrate technology into their classroom practice, learners are empowered to be actively engaged in their learning.” (Wiki) </li></ul>
Examples of Technology Integration <ul><li>Teachers can integrate video conferencing by pen pals that live in a different country. Students’ can ask questions, and converse with their pen pal about their culture and their ways. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers can integrate blogs by asking students to answer different prompts on their online journals. This will allow students to think about topics that were discussed in class. </li></ul><ul><li>Note: These examples are all uses of technology, </li></ul><ul><li>but they help to promote the educational growth of </li></ul><ul><li>a student. These examples allow students’ to learn, </li></ul><ul><li>and to think about the topics at hand. </li></ul>
What Is Technology Use? <ul><li>Technology Use is when electronical devices of any type is assessable for students to work on, and “use”. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Instead of focusing on isolated, skills-based uses of technology, schools should promote the use of various technologies for sophisticated problem-solving and information-retrieving purposes (Means & Olson, 1995).” </li></ul>
Examples of Technology Uses <ul><li>Students can send e-mail to a friend. </li></ul><ul><li>Students can use their I-pod to listen to music. </li></ul><ul><li>Students can use the computer to play cards. </li></ul><ul><li>Note: These are all used, but do not academically help a student to engage in active learning. You can do all of these easily without thought! </li></ul>
Same or Different? <ul><li>Technology Uses </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Technology use can be as simple as turning on you I-pod to listen to music. Using technology does not mean to academically gain anything. The use is the act of just doing, without having to think. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Technology Integration </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Technology Integration means to use a electronic device to academically learn about something. Integration means to actively engage in learning. </li></ul></ul>
Thought!! <ul><li> Technology use and technology integration are both very important. Without one there is not the other. For example, a teacher that does not understand how to “use” a program will be unable to “integrate” a lesson that is academically appropriate. Yes, integration and the use of technology are different but they are both very important! </li></ul>
