Revisiting Technology Integration in Schools: Implications for Professional Development


Computers in the Schools Volume 26, Number 2, ISSN 0738-0569


As the technology infrastructure of schools expands, a common concern has been the underutilization of computers and other technologies in the classroom. Teachers are often blamed for failing to integrate technology into their teaching, giving such reasons as lack of time, training, equipment, and support. However, it has been suggested that these are not the "real" reasons technology is underutilized; instead, it is argued that teachers' core values about teaching and learning are the primary obstacles to successful technology integration (e.g., Cuban, 2001). Implications for professional development are addressed in relation to these barriers to classroom technology use and the developmental pattern of teachers' technology integration.
