A Model of Teacher Professional Development To Support Technology Integration


American Educational Research Association Annual Meeting,


During the 1998-1999 school year faculty from Indiana University's School of Education (Bloomington) began in in-service teacher education program, Teacher Institute for Curriculum Knowledge about Integration of Technology (TICKIT). TICKIT was designed to foster the thoughtful infusion of educational technology into the K-12 curricula of teachers in rural school systems within southern Indiana. This paper describes this program, and then presents an experience-based model upon which it currently rests. TICKIT annually typically includes cohorts of four to six teachers from five school districts. Important factors include classroom-based curriculum projects, teacher choice, systematic reflection on practice, reports by teachers of their work to other professionals, and impact by teachers on others in their schools. The paper concludes with lessons learned from the program during its first four years of operation. A summary of TICKIT teacher projects is tabulated. The TICKIT Individual Project Action Plan (January 5, 2001) is appended. (Contains 35 references.) (Author/AEF)
