Like teaching itself, integrating technology into educational practice is challenging work, full of exciting opportunities and complex problems. Educational Technology in Action brings these challenges to life by providing a series of hypothetical technology integration exercises based on actual situations and events.
These real-world problems give educators opportunities to reflect on and apply concepts they have read about in Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching (Roblyer, 2003). Participating in this simulated problem-solving helps prepare readers for the real world of technology in schools.
This booklet features the Technology Integration Planning (TIP) Model introduced in Chapter 2 of Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching. Based on a systematic instructional design process, the TIP Model addresses problems and planning needs unique to using technology resources in teaching and learning. This information is presented in three parts, and two features are included to help readers understand and apply it:
Each chapter has the following components:
NOTE: Readers may notice that most scenarios and problem exercises focus on middle and high school levels. Although the question of whether or not to emphasize technology uses at lower levels remains controversial, this booklet reflects the position that a greater number of demonstrably effective uses of technology are at middle and high school levels.
The scenarios in Chapters 2-16 are designed to address ISTE's National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T). A listing of the NETS-T and the correlation chart are on the inside covers of this booklet.
Educational Technology in Action is one of a set of ancillary resources that expand on topics introduced in Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching (Roblyer, 2003). Its problem-based format can support introductory instructional technology courses, methods and issues courses, administrative methods courses, and workshops on technology integration. Readers may also find it helpful to use some or all of the following support materials packaged with the Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching textbook:
