Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching, 6e, the leading Educational Technology text on the market, introduces the concept of Technology Integration, shows pre-service teachers how to plan for Technology Integration, and offers them the opportunity to practice Technology Integration when designing curriculum to support and shape learning.
Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching, 6e presents a comprehensive technology integration framework built on both research and proven classroom practices. The Technology Integration Planning Model (TIP Model) shows teachers how to create an environment in which technology can effectively enhance learning. This sixth edition shows how to incorporate the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (Tech-PACK) framework into the TIP Model. Carefully-selected examples and exercises in each chapter encourage teachers to reflect on their practice as they develop the insights, knowledge, and skills they need to integrate technology into content area curricula. Using hundreds of lesson examples and recommended resources, the text balances the theory-based “why” and the practical “how” of using technology to support and shape the future of technology in education.
The goal of this edition is for teachers to see more clearly their role in shaping the future of technology in education. This book illustrates that great education means employing technologies to fulfill the vision they make possible: a worldwide social network and a global community that learns and grows together.

M.D. Roblyer has been a technology-using teacher, professor, and contributor to the field of educational technology for nearly 40 years and has authored or co-authored hundreds of books, monographs, articles, columns, and papers on educational technology research and practice. Her other books for Pearson Education include Starting Out on the Internet: A Learning Journey for Teachers; Technology Tools for Teachers: A Microsoft Office Tutorial (with Steven C. Mills); and Educational Technology in Action: Problem-based Exercises for Technology Integration.
She began her exploration of technology’s benefits for teaching in 1971 as a graduate student at one of the country’s first successful instructional computer training sites, Pennsylvania State University, where she helped write tutorial literacy lessons in the Coursewriter II authoring language on an IBM 1500 dedicated instructional mainframe computer. While obtaining a Ph.D. in instructional systems at Florida State University, she worked on several major courseware development and training projects with Control Data Corporation’s PLATO system. In 1981–1982, she designed one of the early microcomputer software series Grammar Problems for Practice, in conjunction with the Milliken Publishing Company.
Currently, Dr. Roblyer is Adjunct Professor of Instructional Technology and Distance Education (ITDE) at Nova Southeastern University, chairing dissertations for ITDE doctoral students. She serves on editorial boards of various technology and research journals and is past-president of two AERA Special Interest Groups. Her current research focus is promoting student success in virtual school environments and exploring ways to increase interactive qualities in virtual courses. She is married to fellow FSU Ph.D., William R. Wiencke and is the mother of a daughter, Paige.
