Technology Integration is the process of using the tools that we have to learn and to produce.
Teachers use tools to learn and produce products. Students use tools to learn and produce products. Once the mystery, myth and hype of techno phobia disappears, all we are doing is using the things that we have to learn and produce.
Technology Integration is to take place daily in the classroom. It is the infusion of the tools that we have with the curriculum that we teach. Math, Science, Language Arts and Social Studies should all be taught and learned with the tools that we have.
Technology TEKS are to be taught in the regular classroom curriculum by the regular classroom teacher.
Technology Application Labs are simply assistants in the learning process, they are not the Technology Integration curriculum. Integration takes place campus wide by the entire campus population.
When teachers use technology tools to teach core curriculum and students use technology tools to learn core curriculum and produce products that reflect comprehension of core curriculum; then you have Technology Integration.
Technology Integration Instructors help teachers and students use the tools that we have to learn and produce.
