The integration of technology into the classroom has garnered significant attention at all levels of public school systems across the Western world in recent years. The growth of technologies that connect people to all the information the world has to offer at the touch of a button, has forced educators to consider how technology is changing teaching and learning. This project looks at the necessary questions leading up to the implementation of technology in the classroom. These questions are the pillars upon which the use of technology for education can be successfully built. The pillars are leadership, teachers, curriculum and resources, and professional development. Each pillar represents a distinct part of a good Technology Integration Plan and together they create the pedagogical synergy necessary for the successful implementation of technology into the classroom.
