From Technology Integration to Learning… by Design

May 30, 2013

I just read Scott McLeod’s post “The Unholy Trinities of Classroom Technology Usage” which prompted me to share my thoughts on the need to take the next step –beyond an emphasis on integrating technology.  We need to shift our focus from learning with technology to learning by design.

This chart was inspired by the Teachbytes.com table  by Aditi Rao showing the progression from using technology to technology integration, and the work of Grant Wiggins & Jay McTighe:  Understanding by Design. My belief is that in order to shift our focus, we must stop talking about technology integration.  Until we do, we will continue to pay more attention to the technology than the learning.
