Abstract
Often technology purchased for use in the classroom goes unused. These authors identify a primary reason for the lack of technology integration as ineffectively developed professional development opportunities for teachers. Then, the authors recommend a sustained, administrative- and mentor-supported approach to professional development as an alternative to the ineffective traditional approach. The importance of considering the role of teachers’ attitudes and beliefs on their use of technology in professional development is also discussed.
