Conference Paper:


  1. EXPLORING THE PHENOMENON OF TECHNOLOGICAL INTEGRATION IN K-12 CLASSROOMS FOR EDUCATION LEADERS


    International Society for Systems Science Conference
    (2016)


    Throughout the years, there has been a concern about how the school systems in the United States can be improved. As population growth continues and existing issues
    remaindue toa insufficient funding, it becomes more complex to address the specific areas where training is needed, students with special needs are forgotten, growing classroom sizes, parent involvement student health and more. The current issue we can see now is the lack of resources schools have to spend on research and development. By utilizing technology to conduct the research and collect data, it may be possible to optimize resources of faculty and improve student learning. Similar to any change in organizations, there will be resistance among not only the faculty, but also the parents and students whose cooperation and belief in the technology is needed.

    The presentation will build upon the ideas that success in implementing technology into classrooms relies heavily on collaborative teamwork from educators and education leaders, an established digital platform as a tool to keep all team members in constant communication and in sync, and well as trust in the relationships between the technology, the user, and the leaders advocating for this transition into the 21st century. Leaders who are successful should
    likelyhaveless feelings of frustration, doubt, or impatience with the process. On the contrary, leaders who have achieve
    levels of technology integration in their schools should feel hopeful, eager, enthusiastic, and inquisitive with their responsibilities.

    The analysis will be strictly K-12 focused considering that Higher Education operates significantly different than K-12 (Ensminger, 2005). The demonstration will attempt to provide insight not only on the success of what leaders have experienced through integrating technology in K-12 schools, but also some of the challenges they had encountered when working with students and parents to accept and believe in the technology they want to use. This investigation will help shed light on some of the likely obstacles and the solutions decided by these leaders in order to prepare future education leaders for the transition as more and more school board members and leaders begin to embrace technology as a positive and efficient change for their organizations
