Considerations on Educational Technology Integration: The Best of JRTE
Increased accessibility to technology has resulted in increased educational use; however despite its positive impact, technology has not facilitated the wholesale educational reform that so many of us have hoped for. Journal of Research on Technology in Education ( JRTE) editor Lynne Schrum suggests that this may be remedied by developing a new research agenda-one that connects educators and researchers, and looks not only at the past, but provides direction for the future. In Considerations on Educational Technology Integration, Schrum brings together some of the best JRTE articles that focus on classroom technology integration, demonstrating how research can be used to connect theory to practice-moving education forward. Topics include digitized primary sources, mobile computing devices, the influence of teachers technology use on instructional practices, and implementation and effects of one-to-one computing initiatives.
The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) is the trusted source for professional development, knowledge generation, advocacy and leadership for innovation. ISTE is the premier membership association for educators and education leaders engaged in improving teaching and learning by advancing the effective use of technology in PK-12 and teacher education. Home of the National Educational Technology Standards (NETS), the Center for Applied Research in Educational Technology (CARET), and ISTE's annual conference (formerly known as the National Educational Computing Conference, or NECC), ISTE represents more than 100,000 professionals worldwide. We support our members with information, networking opportunities, and guidance as they face the challenge of transforming education.
