Use open ended questions to encourage discussion.  5. Have students tell you about their character  6. Have additional help to assist students (Witt,2009)
  7. 7. Distance Learning  Distance learning uses a computer or Internet based programs that allow educators and learners to interact but not necessarily in face-to-face interactions.  It allow schools to connect with each other, create virtual field trips, and share interactive seminars.
  8. 8. Distance Learning: Connect Students  E-mail  Televised lectures  Web-based courses  Audio & Video  Electronic field trips
  9. 9. Information From:
  10. 10. Technology in Science: Tools  Lab equipment  Video materials  Interactive multimedia programs  Open access data sets  Communication tools
  11. 11. Technology in Science: Concept Mapping  Create a concept map by using Inspiration. Inspiration is an online tool where students can create a map to help them brainstorm information and clearly communicate their ideas more clearly.
  12. 12. Concept Map
  13. 13. Benefits to Concept Mapping  Easy to use  Students are engaged  Students are responsible for finding their information  Assesses students understanding  Provides students the opportunity to discuss among other students (Besnoy & Clarke)
  14. 14. Technology in Science: Google Earth  Google Earth provides satellite images and 3D terrains to make the geographical virtual field trip feasible and realistic (Besnoy & Clarke).
  15. 15. Google Earth Images
  16. 16. Benefits to Google Earth Free field trip  Learn about other countries  Explore volcanoes and glaciers  Distinguish between celestial bodies in the sky (ESS.10.K1)  Identify natural and man-made land formations  Identify various characteristics of Earth’s surface (ESS.8.K.1)  Illustrate planets in the solar system (ESS.10.1.1)
  17. 17. Technology in Literacy: Tools  Projectors  SMART Boards  Video Cameras  PowerPoint  Online Games
  18. 18. Technology in Literacy: WebQuests  Webquests are online teacher-created inquiry assignment designed to guide students through various Internet resources to help them answer questions about a specific topic (Besnoy and Clarke).  Teachers can create their own or use already made WebQuests using an online resource  Go to any search engine type in WebQuests with a specific topic in mind Example: Kindergarten WebQuests on bugs
  19. 19. Technology in Literacy: WebQuests  Online resources for literacy teachers for creating WebQuests  www.teacherweb.com/twquest  www.teach- nology.com/web_tools/web_quest  www.webquest.com Besnoy and Clarke
