Abstract

Technology integration activities at our institution have uncovered myths related to: 1)Technology Awareness; 2)Technology Use; 3)Time Requirements; and 4)Large Scale Training, as experienced through the implementation of our Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology project. We will discuss how the persistence of such beliefs can unduly burden technology personnel and resources. The four "myths" will be fully described during the roundtable session and responses from attendees will be encouraged to either support or challenge these findings.
