Interactive whiteboards - adopting the technology
 

Integration

The integration or ‘breakthough’ stage is characterised by a teacher who has made the commitment to use the interactive technology and considers it an indispensable part of high-quality teaching and learning. A teacher at this level integrates the technology into their lesson planning and everyday teaching. The ‘expendability’ of the technology is the most critical attribute or characteristic of this stage.

For many teachers this phase marks the beginning of an exciting path of professional development and desire to move even further in integrating the technology.
