What is Successful Technology Integration?

When using technology in the classroom, it is important not to just throw the students into new things. The integration of technology in the classroom has to be routine and transparent, accessible and readily available for the task at hand and supporting the curricular goals and helping the students to effectively reach their goals. The amount of technology that is available in the classroom depends on how the teaching will be done. There may only be a smart board in the room meaning that the lessons will be more involved around the teacher. On the other hand, each student may have access to an iPad and will be able to do more independent learning and searching the web. Teachers need to be willing to integrate technology into the classroom and when they do it can be very beneficial to the students learning. This website shows the many different ways and levels that technology can be integrated into the classroom.
