Develop new strategies for using computers in the classroom Educators have talked about using information technology to improve teaching since the beginning of the modern computer movement but true integration remains an elusive goal—for most. Classroom Integration of Type II Uses of Technology in Education finds teachers who have managed to take advantage of the sophistication, power, and affordability of today’s technology to develop new and better strategies for learning, despite the absence of an effective institutional infrastructure. This unique book reviews effective Type II teaching applications and software used at all educational levels, including Lego/Logo technologies, idea technologies, graphics software, laptop computers, and handheld computers. Information technology in schools has failed to fulfill its considerable potential because without a widespread instructional support system, computers are generally poorly used and not integrated meaningfully into classroom activities. But some educators have still been able to implement Type II applications of information technology in their educational settings. Classroom Integration of Type II Uses of Technology in Education looks at their innovative methods of using computers to bring about more effective teaching—and learning. Classroom Integration of Type II Uses of Technology in Education examines: computer activities of grade 1-5 students using Lego/Logo technologies using Kid-Pix graphics software for creative activities the Technology Integration Assessment Instrument (TIAI) gender disparity in computer-oriented problem solving a three-tiered, idea-technology classification system pre-service teacher preparation assistive technology definitions, legislation, and implementation issues lesson plans and document techniques for laptop computers an action/instructional model for using handheld wireless computers in the classroom Classroom Integration of Type II Uses of Technology in Education is an invaluable resource for academics working in information technology and education, and for K-12 teachers and administrators at all levels.

Spark your students to actually want to learn through the creative application of technology! Type II applications in education make it possible to teach in new and more effective ways. Type II Uses of Technology in Education: Projects, Case Studies, and Software Applications clearly explains methods and strategies presently used by teachers to offer students a creative learning experience through the application of technology. Each chapter presents individual examples of how teachers have applied technology in schools and classrooms, illustrating through case studies, projects, and software applications how to effectively spark students’ interest and learning. Type II Uses of Technology in Education is the third in a series (Internet Applications of Type II Uses of Technology in Education and Classroom Integration of Type II Uses of Technology in Education, both from Haworth) that provides a clear view of the advantages—and challenges—involved in the use of technology to enhance and actively involve students in the learning process. The applications described and discussed at length here go beyond the mundane educational functions like grading or presenting drill and practice exercises to explore fresh ways of teaching and learning. Students can become involved and actually want to learn, all through the use of creative technology application. The book also includes tables and figures to enhance understanding of the material. Type II Uses of Technology in Education discusses: data collection, analysis, and communication in student research using pocket PCs and laptops the educational effect of using a learning object as a pedagogical model rather than simply being technological in nature examples of integrated Type II activities e-learning courses using interactive video, WebCT, and on-site discussion groups electronic discussion applications in a laptop university teacher education program challenges facing students using computers to enhance and express the extent of their learning information and communication technology (ICT) integration into schools—using three illustrative case studies forward planning needed to make the difficult change to technological application for learning a case study that used problem-based learning software with at-risk students using technology to reinforce visual learning strategies digital portfolio development as a Type II application interactive computer technology in art instruction on-demand help features for effective interactive learning experience Personal Educational Tools (PETs) Type II Uses of Technology in Education: Projects, Case Studies, and Software Applications provides numerous illustrations of technology learning in action and is perfect for educators and students in programs dealing with information technology in education, and for public school personnel with interests and responsibilities in using information technology in the classroom.

Give your students a powerful learning resource—the Internet! The Internet, though brimming with potential, is still vastly underused as a teaching resource. Internet Applications of Type II Uses of Technology in Education gives teachers new strategies for the Internet's use as a dynamic educational resource. Where Type I teaching applications technologically mimic the procedures previously used by teachers, Type II teaching applications involve innovative thinking in the use of technology in learning. Using Type II applications with the Internet, students are actively empowered to look to its use as an effective partner in their learning process. This book clearly reviews several Type II teaching applications and integrative software for use in all educational levels, including Internet videoconferencing, instant messages, WebQuests, and WebCT. Though now readily available, even those schools with the capability fail to effectively integrate computer and Internet technology into meaningful classroom activities. Using the Internet as a teaching and learning tool offers a flexibility that can be extremely effective. Internet Applications of Type II Uses of Technology in Education clearly shows how some creative educators have implemented inventive Type II applications in their teaching plans to give their students a more enriching learning experience. Internet Applications of Type II Uses of Technology in Education explores: critically evaluating Web site information how perceptions and behaviors change when Internet access becomes universally available Internet2 Videoconferencing integrating online communication into courses utilizing computer-mediated communication (CMC) tools structured online class discussions using Instant Messenger (IM) increasing vocabulary through software and online texts online learning in second-language acquisition (SLA) a project in New Zealand in which teachers and students learn Web design with the help of an external expert WebQuests as a Type II application WebCT as a Type II application achievement testing through the computer the Global Forum on School Leadership (GFSL) as a Type II application Internet Applications of Type II Uses of Technology in Education is a valuable, idea-generating resource for all academics working in information technology and education, and for K-12 teachers and administrators at all levels.

First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.

Although there is no one right approach to working with teachers, professional developers will increase their chances for success when they base their work on a solid theoretical background of adult learning theory and organizational development, along with an understanding of lessons learned from the practice of others through the years, both nationally and internationally. This book provides an overview of professional development programs that have demonstrated longterm success through assessment of outcomes. The models described here explore approaches that expand teachers knowledge, skill, and confidence in using technology tools in teaching and learning environments, with the focus on improving teaching and learning rather than on the technology use. Thirteen chapters cover a wide range of topics, including a history of professional development in educational technology and a grounding in the relevant literature; successful and cutting-edge professional development models that discuss program planning, implementation, and assessment; and a discussion of lessons to be learned. The chapters are presented against a backdrop of selected relevant literature.
