Overview

Using Technology in the Classroom highlights the essential topics related to using technology in education, as outlined in the ISTE (NETS-S and NETS-T)standards.

The book covers all the relevant technology topics related to understanding, creating, developing, applying and implementing technology rich experiences for students and teachers. This includes the words and acronyms that often cause concern for educators like podcasting, spyware, MUDs, MUVEs, social networking, and blogging. Suggestions and examples are provided to help students understand these terms.

Thoroughly revised and updated, this text includes the most current information on the use of technology in the classroom: social, ethical, legal and human issues including copyright, early childhood, exceptional students, emerging technologies, podcasting, and digital storytelling. Educational website addresses, screen captures, Internet activities, resources, and applications all provide clear and comprehensive information to equip students with the basic tools needed for understanding and integrating technology into education.
