Tech Integration

Today I found a fantastic article that really sums up my thoughts about technology in education.  Read the article here:

"There’s a wide gulf between technology use in the classroom and actual tech integration."

Yes!  How do we (teachers) use technology to transform learning for our students instead of using technology to substitute tasks that we currently have students complete?  There is certainly a place for technology as a substitute- practicing math facts, sight words, number recognition, etc.  But true integration goes beyond that and allows students to use technologies to enhance and transform their learning.  And when student learning is transformed, teaching has been too!!
