Thursday, March 10 4:00-4:30 PM Location: Two Rivers
Abstract: With more digital technologies entering classrooms every year, there is a need to observe how teachers plan for thoughtful integration. The purpose of this study is to understand the thought processes and decisions a fifth grade teacher makes to integrate technology into her lessons using the TPCK framework (Mishra & Koehler 2006) and how her pedagogical beliefs affect those processes. Based on qualitative data analysis, this paper shares a fifth grade teacher’s experience planning for the integration of technology in a technology-rich, low SES, Title I classroom.
