This week in my current class, Teacher Tech Integration and Professional Development, we were asked to make a visual representation of some knowledge or entry-level skills teachers need for technology integration. I decided to use Google Docs and Google Drawings then made a screencast explanation (embedded below).

In the video, I make a reference to Ertmer. Here is the main article I am referencing; it is a seminal work in technology integration in education:

Ertmer, P. A. (1999). Addressing first-and second-order barriers to change: Strategies for technology integration. Educational Technology Research and Development, 47(4), 47-61.

If you have an interest in the topic, I suggest you read the work of Peg Ertmer  or some of the more recent work by Ertmer and Anne Ottenbreit-Leftwich.

    So, first off, what did you use to speed up the screencast? And where did you get the music? Both really cool features and I like how you set this up.

    Now, for the content. When you’re talking about patience – I like this term because it’s more practitioner oriented – however, from the readings, were there any other terms that you think would fit here? Like openness, willing to fail, support? What from the literature would support this? Unless you think this is a new concept that no one out there has addressed before… (be careful if this is your response 🙂

    It seems like Terminology and Relationships would fit under TK.
    And you’ve also addressed a lot of TPK. But where is the TPACK element, or how technology fits in to support specific subject areas or grade levels? (You didn’t have to align with TPACK, but I wanted to see how you’d consider this point and it’s role in your current set up).

      I used Camtasia to speed up the video clips. I do the majority of my screencasts in Camtasia because of the versatility it offers. The music was from one of the creative commons music sites I use. I can’t remember specifically which one off the top of my head.
