Elsa Mansfield's insight:

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.

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.

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.
