Abstract

Transformative educational technology (EdTech) is a practice in education that improves student learning by implementing real-world, authentic tasks and activities that would not be achievable without the use of technology. Over the past decade, there has been a rapid increase in EdTech in the classroom, yet teachers still lack clarity and uncertainty around creating engaging and meaningful technology-integrated lessons. The focus of this chapter is on the practice of creating real-world, authentic lessons with the use of technology for elementary teachers. This chapter provides an overview of EdTech in the current educational system, technology integration frameworks to support teacher growth towards transformation with technology, and suggestions to guide educators in implementing research-based strategies for lessons and assessments.
