Stages in Integrating technology Elaine Hoter
Stage 1: Awareness 1 I am aware that technology exists but have not used it – perhaps I’ve even avoiding it “The computer was my enemy and the Internet was intimidating”
2 1 Stage 2: Learning the process I am currently trying to learn the basics. I am often frustrated using computers. I lack confidence when using computers. “I need more time to practice because I have still not mastered basic computer skills….”
Stage 3: Understanding and application of the process 32 1 I am beginning to understand the process of using technology and can think of specific tasks in which it might be useful
“… In fact last week I was able to get through on the Internet to explore other interests of my own. Finally I was not blocked by techno=wierdness on computer and I got access to several sites and downloaded real tangible interesting stuff. “ 32 1
Stage 4: Familiarity and confidence I am gaining a sense of confidence in using the computer for specific tasks. I am starting to feel comfortable using the computer I am gaining a sense of confidence in using the computer for specific tasks. I am starting to feel comfortable using the computer.
“As I began to build confidence - particularly in building the lessons for my on-line pupil in Jerusalem, I found that I was more tolerant to ask for help, explore and integrate material” 432 1
Stage 5: Adaptation to other contexts I think about the computer as a tool I think about the computer as a tool to help me and am no longer concerned about it as technology. I can use it in many applications and as an instructional aid.
“Each class would do some research using the Internet and in groups present both a written and visual presentation in front of the class. A bibliography would include only websites. Perhaps I’d do this together with the computer course teacher using PowerPoint etc.”
Stage 6: Creative application to new contexts I can apply what I know about technology in the classroom. I am able to use it as an instructional tool and integrate it into the curriculum
“I felt as though I went through a transition process where I learned how to integrate technology in a real teaching situation. I feel I am able to integrate the technology in my class because I practiced dealing with actual learning difficulties and processes with my pupil.”
Stage 7: Widening the learning community I know how to integrate the technologies to widen the learning community: to form and participate in communities and online projects with other teachers, pupils and professionals I know how to integrate the technologies to widen the learning community: to form and participate in communities and online projects with other teachers, pupils and professionals.
“what I particularly like about teaching using the Internet is that it encourages learner independence and allows the students to practice their English with people other than their teacher.”
