Effective technology integration experiences are driven by a well-defined image of effective classroom learning and teaching. Viewing video cases of standards-based lessons provides the meaningful context for understanding the vision of reform-based teaching, understanding the benefits and effective uses of technology to support student achievement, and for finding practical strategies to implement. Video cases provide windows into models and dilemmas of classroom practice and influence cognitive processing of concepts and principles of instruction covered in the case by providing (a) rich, contextualized views of teaching and learning, (b) practice in observing and identifying use of best practice strategies, and (c) an in depth exploration of the underlying principles.
