Abstract

Professional organizations in many subject areas have em-phasized changing the way subject matter is taught by active-ly involving students in critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, and exploration. One way to accomplish this is with the use of technology and constructivism, al-though many barriers to technology integration exist. This ar-ticle follows a classroom teacher through five years of work-ing to integrate technology, and in turn, constructivism into his classroom. This teacher was successful in helping his stu-dents gain new skills or enhance existing skills in technolo-gy, critical thinking, collaboration, presentation, and self-learning. The teacher's changes in instructional practices, his reflections on these changes, how he overcame common bar-riers to integrate the technology, and the benefits to himself and his students are discussed.
