Foundations of Research
During the course I researched the state of knowledge about technology integration, starting with the ACOT studies in the early 1990's. Include are the annotated resources that served as the basis for the subsequent literature review that I conducted regarding technology integration.
It highlights first and second order barriers to technology integration- infrastructure/tech support and core pedagogical and training knowledge gaps. Also highlighted are suggestions and evidence-based research solutions to overcoming these challenges in educational settings. The solution I proposed is based on a mentoring model with clearly delineated phases and corresponding responsibilities, based on the evidence presented in the research.
