"Technology integration is the use of technology resources -- computers, digital cameras, CD-ROMs, software applications, the Internet, etc. – in the daily practices of a classroom and in the management of a school. It is the transparent use of these tools that demonstrates integration. It is when the use of technology is routine. Technology integration is when a child or a teacher doesn't stop to think that he or she is using a computer or researching via the Internet." VHS, Inc. Copyright © 1996-2009

Transforming Learning Environments with Technology
Today’s educators must provide a learning environment that takes students beyond the walls of their classrooms and into a world of endless opportunities. Technology standards promote this classroom transformation by ensuring that digital-age students are empowered to learn, live, and work successfully today and tomorrow.
