What Is Successful Technology Integration? | Edutopia.

The most important part of technology integration is the acceptance of change.  I’ve read over and over and even experienced it first hand what a change in teaching strategy can do to make technology integration successful.  Having access to a variety of technology tools is also very important.  Again, I’ve experienced first hand how the one-size-fits-all mentality, where every classroom was equipped with a bank of computers, did nothing to HELP the teacher integrate tech into their classroom.  If I could just have that budget they had in 1999-2002 for purchasing desktops, building network infrastructure, and ensuring that every classroom had 5 computers I could  purchase a variety of tools that fit a variety of needs, keep the network infrastructure updated and provide mentors as well as professional development for those teachers who see the power of letting student take their own learning in their own hands.
