...what do you do in your classroom? Many of us believe we are integrating technology when we have our students present a Powerpoint or type in Word. What if I told you, you are only using technology. Look at the chart below. Where do you see yourself?
When I first saw this chart, a light bulb truly went off for me. There is a huge difference between using and integrating, and I don't know that those differences have been made clear to all educators. My goal is to use Thursdays to educate teachers on those differences and how to get out of just using technology and how to truly begin integrating it.
Using the chart above, find an area you would like to work on as far as integration is concerned. Think of it like a growth plan for PD. How can you change ONE thing in your teaching to integrate technology? Comment below if you feel comfortable. Contact me if you want help with the area you choose!
