Abstract

The professional development model proposed here builds on and extends the use of VisionQuest © , a CD-ROM teacher development tool designed to help teachers envision and achieve technology integration. The VisionQuest © model is based on the assumption that teachers are more likely to embrace pedagogical and classroom change if these changes address real issues they face in practice. Teachers are challenged to reflect on their current knowledge and classroom practices, relative to technology integration, and then, after observing exemplary models included on VisionQuest © , develop and pilot their own solutions to relevant classroom issues. By engaging teachers in reflective activities that nurture and sustain their professional development, VisionQuest © facilitates the growth of teachers' visions for teaching and learning with technology.
