Abstract: For the last three decades, technology has consistently increased its presence in American classrooms. However, effective technology integration has been an issue for educators, pointing to a lack of sound professional development opportunities. Professional learning communities (PLCs) seek to replace traditional models of professional development through their teacher-centered and collaborative approaches to learning. This paper proposes a research-based plan for technology integration grounded in PLCs.
