Research analyst Vanessa Vega, a researcher with the Center for Learning in Informal and Formal Environments at Stanford University, has put some thought into this. Writing for the George Lucas-funded website Edutopia, Vega identifies three key principles that aid successful technology integration into teaching and learning. These are situations in which students play an active role in their learning and receive frequent personalized feedback, where students learn to both critically analyze and create media of their own, and where teachers connect classroom activities to the world outside. Successful classroom technology integration is achieved, she suggests, when the technology is routine and transparent, accessible and readily available for the task at hand, and supportive of both curricular goals and also providing multiple paths for students to reach those goals.
