What does "Integrating Technology" mean?

Hello Integrating Technology colleagues,

What does" Integrating Technology in adult basic skills instruction" mean to you in 2018?

Are you integrating technology in your teaching practice if:

  • Your program has a computer lab and your students go there once a week, or more regularly, to use a computer-assisted instruction program?
  •  Students in your classes bring their smartphones to class and you -- and they -- use them regularly for instruction, research, practice, assessment or other education purposes?
  •  Your program -- and perhaps your classroom -- has an interactive videoconferencing system or real-time distance learning system that enables your students to take a class online together in real time with other adult basic skills students who are in your state, or across the country?
  • All of the above?
  • None of the above?
  • Something else?

What essential characteristics define good practice of of "integrating technology" for you?
