Technology Integration Professional Development Guide
An overview of the Edutopia professional development guide for integrating technology tools in the classroom.
Edutopia.org's Technology Integration professional development guide is meant for use either after completion of the Project-Based Learning Guide or with participants who are familiar with project-based learning. The guide is designed for a two- to three-hour class or session. It can be used in conjunction with trainings on technology used in classroom settings.
Part one is a guided process, designed to give participants a brief introduction to technology integration. It answers the questions "Why is technology integration important?" and "What is technology integration?"
