Educational technology assignment
Instructional Technology Applications
For this assignment, you will select a technology tool that you will research its effectiveness in the classroom. Find 3-5 articles from educational journals that deal with research on using technology in the classroom and provide a summary of the research. Try to select articles that discuss a technology tool that can be used in your content area. Provide a 2-3 pages (double spaced) review of the research with a reference page (APA format). Here are the expectations of what you need to include in your paper:
1. Introduction: you can include a summary of the technology tool discussed in the article, or introduce the need to incorporate a specific tool in your content area.
2. Summary of the research: Do not summarize each article separately. Synthesize the information you gathered from the article thematically. Describe how the tool is used in the classroom. Summarize the findings of the research. Did the authors find the technology resource effective in the classroom? what were the benefits and drawbacks?
3. Reflection: what did you learn from reading the research on technology integration? How would that impact your decisions of using the specific tool you investigated in your classroom.
4. Reference page: list your references using APA format.
