To ensure educational technology is used effectively, educators must put together a curriculum that will encourage students to ask questions and think about what they need to learn (Schrum, 2003). Educators must value the exploration that technology lends itself to and realize it can be a vital teaching tool. They must seek out professional development in the use of appropriate technology and become models of life-long learning for their students. In using technology within the classroom, educators must become comfmiable with and then develop ways technology can enhance what they teach (Schrum, 2003). This project's goal was to develop a technology-integrated curriculum that focused on the process of inquiry, challenging students to become critical thinkers. Relevant research was analyzed and noted. The researcher gathered technologyintegrated lessons and activities to enhance the curriculum within the classroom.
