Define technology. What does the word mean to me?
Technology is about communication, a two-way street to exploring and developing new ideas, concepts, and ways of looking at things from another perspective. It is not just a two-dimensional concept, but a multi-dimensional way of thought. Technology can be very simple or quite complex…whatever the mind can imagine!
Describe technology integration. What does it look like in a classroom?
Technology integration is looking at all the tools available to me, and using them to the full extent to which I am capable of. It is not simply being comfortable with the tools afforded to me, but being challenged to push it to the limit. It should involve using all of the senses….not just sight and sound. It’s a touchy, feely way of finding out what we are really capable of.
