There are several issues I can see with technology integration once we get past the supply issue including, function and purpose. “Technology used for teaching and learning should be considered an integral part of instruction and not as an object exclusive to itself.” (Okojie, Olinzock, & Okojie-Boulder, 2006) This I see as being the biggest issue with technology is that many fail to see it as a tool and they idolise it as if learning cannot happen without it. By using Technology Integration Planning (TIP) students and parents can understand it’s place and work together with teachers to make sure students are learning the necessary skills.
