One method for positively incorporating technologies is the practice of team teaching. In this chapter the authors cover why it is important for team members to self identify partners, including teachers from other disciplines, as well as to pinpoint the model which works best. The need to pre-plan instruction, evaluation, the role each member will play, and the use of the technology is also discussed. Teaching in an inclusive setting requires providing for assimilation, selecting appropriate technologies, and expanding the team to include parents and support personnel. Online team teaching is generally agreed to be the most difficult instructional model. Its success requires the same elements; however, the added component of technology necessitates that teachers be comfortable with technology and able to transmit that attitude. The benefits of team teaching for students include meaningful learning and the ability to achieve personalized goals. Ford once stated, “Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress and working together is success” (as cited in Cromwell, 2005, p. 4).
