"Over the past 5 years, we have been involved in conducting a design experiment aimed at helping us understand teachers’ development toward rich uses of technology while simultaneously helping teachers—both K–12 teachers and university faculty—develop their teaching with technology.
In this particular context, the implications of developing a framework go beyond a coherent way of thinking about technology integration. We argue that a conceptually based theoretical framework about the relationship between technology and teaching can transform the conceptualization and the practice of teacher education, teacher training, and teachers' professional development. It can also have a significant impact on the kinds of research questions we explore." p.1019.
