Thursday, 7/13: Class Discussion/Summary
Technology Integrationists choose and use technology to enhance the curriculum and make an impact on student learning. There is an intersection of content knowledge, pedagogical knowledge and technology knowledge, and at this point is true technology integration.
We need to prepare our students for the 21st century that they will be entering. Technology keeps changing and so does technology knowledge. Once a technology is used everywhere it is typically no longer considered technology.
If you withhold technology from a student for misbehavior (i.e. inappropriate internet usage) it may be objectifying the technology. It is not very integrated. Students make poor decisions, how can you assist them in not making an inappropriate decision in the future (rearrange lab layout to observe them closer, get hacker involved in security, etc.)
