The Technology Integration Outreach Project (TIOP) is a joint project between the Southeast Interactive Long Distance Learning Consortium (SILDL), and University of South Dakota School of Education's Professional Development Center (PDC) and it's Learning Organizations for Technology Integration Project (LOFTI). Three outcomes guide the projects work: (1) develop partnerships with USD School of Education and K-12 schools; (2) create curriculum models of best practices in technology integration. (3) utilize distance technologies as a communication tool for professional development across the project. Three separate TIOP Projects have taken place. During the Spring Semester of 2001, the fall of 2001 and the spring of 2002 TIOP interdisciplinary teams were assembled and completed the development of best practices curriculum units with technology integration as a key element of the unit. About four-dozen teachers, faculty and pre-service teachers have participated in completing eight units. Experiences will be shared with text and video.
