Overview

To encourage teachers to share ideas and suggestions for integrating technology into the classroom, Using Technology in the Classroom shows you how to change the way administrators, teachers, parents, and students think about the teaching and learning process. As this important book shows, technology can allow you to make the transition from teacher-directed learning to learner-centered learning, a change that will often draw in even hard-to-reach kids. More and more, society expects educators to incorporate computer and technology education into their classrooms. This book, with its specific planning and teaching strategies and advice on materials selection, implementation, and evaluation, will be your guide for making technology an integral part of your students’classroom experiences.

Getting educators and school administrators to see technology as the key element in school restructuring can be an overwhelming task, but, as this book shows, the practical value of getting students on computers at an early age is immense. You can accommodate a wider range of learning styles, you can guide students as they develop their problem-solving abilities, and help them tap their creative energies. Using Technology in the Classroom shows you many practical ways for creating individualized technology-based instructional programs and how to choose software that meets your teaching objectives, is developmentally appropriate, and can be adapted to each learning situation. To help you improve teaching and learning throughout the school years, this comprehensive guidebook discusses:

  • children's visual education
  • conceptual manipulation on the Internet
  • encouraging students to use computers in personally meaningful and practical ways
  • using sound in school projects
  • the need for culturally relevant learning activities
  • the spreadsheet as a problem-solving tool
  • cultural lag and educational decisionmaking

    Using Technology in the Classroom can show administrators, school board members, teachers, and university support faculty how to work together to design and use technology in the learning environment. As you will see, site-based professional development experiences that teach teachers how to use technology, multimedia, and telecommunications in the classroom are a first step for making technology a standard component of today's education system.
