Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching, 6e, the leading Educational Technology text on the market, introduces the concept of Technology Integration, shows pre-service teachers how to plan for Technology Integration, and offers them the opportunity to practice Technology Integration when designing curriculum to support and shape learning.
Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching, 6e presents a comprehensive technology integration framework built on both research and proven classroom practices. The Technology Integration Planning Model (TIP Model) shows teachers how to create an environment in which technology can effectively enhance learning. This sixth edition shows how to incorporate the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (Tech-PACK) framework into the TIP Model. Carefully-selected examples and exercises in each chapter encourage teachers to reflect on their practice as they develop the insights, knowledge, and skills they need to integrate technology into content area curricula. Using hundreds of lesson examples and recommended resources, the text balances the theory-based “why” and the practical “how” of using technology to support and shape the future of technology in education.
The goal of this edition is for teachers to see more clearly their role in shaping the future of technology in education. This book illustrates that great education means employing technologies to fulfill the vision they make possible: a worldwide social network and a global community that learns and grows together.
