What is Integration?
 •Using available technology as a tool in the
  classroom. The same as you would use a book
  or a manipulative.
 •It is NOT “playing” a computer game when a
  child finishes his/her work.
 •Technologies are not an “add-on”. Your goal
  should be to use them in every phase
  of your curriculum.
Where do I begin?
    •Evaluate your resources.
    •Lab or computers in your classroom?
    •Evaluate your own skills and who can
     assist you within your school system.
    •Attend training and conferences to gain
     more knowledge of available resources.
    •Join professional organizations.
    •How can computers help ME?
Simplify YOUR life with Technology

   •Grade book
   •Lesson Plans
   •Schedules
   •Checklists
   •Databases of Student Information
   •Create worksheets/classroom aids
