Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to introduce a technology integration model designed to assist pre-service teachers to learn meaningful uses of technology in K–12 classrooms. Based on studies in teacher education, learning theory, and technology integration, the authors define five essential characteristics necessary for pre-service teacher education: (a) providing concrete experience, (b) promoting reflection, (c) assisting knowledge application to actual practice, (d) creating communities of learners, and (e) developing Technological Pedagogical and Content Knowledge (TPACK) (Mishra & Koehler, 2006; Thompson & Mishra, 2007-2008). The Situated Technology Integration (SiTI) model was developed based on these characteristics. This paper explains the SiTI model in detail and shares data on its implementation processes.
