12 Ways To Integrate (Not Just Use) Technology In Education | IT 442 Professional Development | Scoop.it

it442's insight:

Elsa Mansfield-This article talks about using technology to learn instead of learning how to use technology. Integration involves making technology a part of the everyday classroom, and using it to engage studetns with information or content. I like the idea of being very purposeful with employing technology in a variety of ways and incorporating technology in our learning tasks constantly.  Using technology without direction and purpose can create problems and wastes tremendous potential.

This article is really interesting. It talks about the difference between merely using technology, and actually integrating it into the classroom. It gives scenarios, examples, and compares and contrasts the ideas of "using" and "integrating". I found it to be a good reminder of the ideas that our lessons should not be based around the technology itself, but instead, used in the same way as any other learning tool, to help make learning accessible.

Being purposeful about incorporating technology in our learning tasks will be vital to being an effective teacher. Students need to be taught how to use these tools and navigate the volume of information the internet presents. Using technology without direction and purpose can create problems and wastes tremendous potential.

5 ways to teach kids to use technology safely

5 ways to teach kids to use technology safely | IT 442 Professional Development | Scoop.it
Here’s how parents and teachers can teach young children how to use technology safely.
it442's insight:

I chose this article because I think what is often at the forefront of confusion is not what technology to use but how to teach our students/children how to use the technology. This article goes over five ways to teach kids about safely using technology. It is a great reminder that technology does not usually start in the classroom it is everywhere. Community programs like the one described in this article are helpful in educating not only teachers but also parents.

6 Helpful Tips For The 1 iPad Classroom

6 Helpful Tips For The 1 iPad Classroom | IT 442 Professional Development | Scoop.it

"While most educators and teachers are aware of the benefits that can arise in the classroom through the use of iPads and tablets, budgetary constraints can often limit the way that technology can be used to augment learning activities in smaller schools (or school districts)."


Via John Evans
it442's insight:

Michela- This article is extremely helpful since many schools do not have a budget for many technology devices such as the iPad. However, one iPad in the classroom is more than enough because it can be plugged in to any interactive whiteboard that will allow the entire class to engage with what is happening on the device. Also, students can use the iPad as a small group activity that will allow students to work on subjects they may not have enjoyed before but because it is on an iPad it seems way more exciting.

it442's insight:

This article goes over the changes in standards as we move away from state standards and adopt the CCSS. The CCSS have a large focus on technology integration into the multiple subject areas. This article goes over the technology requirements in the CCSS and then provides some methodology for incoperating I.T. in a meaningful and effective way for learners.
