This report summarizes the program of study done to complete a graduate internship in the field of Teaching and Learning. The theme of the report is the integration of technology within and across the curriculum particularly with respect to the role of the Learning Resource Teacher. This document consists of three components: the first, a theoretical framework providing the foundation for practical application, the second, a critical reflective analysis of the internship, and the third, a reflective analysis of specific internship projects. -- The theoretical framework explores the literature related to the role of technology in society and education. It summarizes current thinking on the appropriate application of technology and integration strategies. The implications of current learning theory and curriculum perspectives are discussed as well as the problems of initiating change in a conservative educational system. -- The critical reflective analysis component includes a description of the school and its current status with respect to technology, but focuses on the experiences of the internship that contributed to the development of an in depth understanding of the realities of the role of the Learning Resource Teacher. Particular emphasis is placed on the projects and strategies for integrating technology. -- The final component of the report includes a description and critical reflective analysis of two specific projects: the first involved the development of a primary and elementary information skills continuum incorporating the technology outcomes identified in current curriculum guidebooks; the second involves using a Stellar School Project, ISLE-Net, to integrate technology within and across the curriculum. It outlines the planning and preparation procedures followed, a description and analysis of the implementation process, recommendations for the further development of the ISLE-Net project, and a discussion of its implications for future projects.
