Etec skills 3 christopher liu

  1. 1. TECHNOLOGY AND ME A personal timeline of educational technology
  2. 2. Overview My name is Christopher Liu I started school in 1995 in Honolulu, Hawaii. I graduated from high school in 2010 from Iolani High School I first went to college at the University of Hawaii at Manoa in 2010 When I finish my degree, I hope to become an elementary school teacher or clinical psychologist.
  3. 3. MY DEFINITION OF EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY …is anything that allows me to connect with my students on a better level. The eraser was once “new technology,” after all. Educational technology helps me to gauge what my students know and what they might need help in understanding. It also facilitates the use of project based learning and my students’ development of 21st century leadership skills.
  4. 4. Web sites on ed tech history (it’s a mash-up! Blog + Wiki + Video + Article) • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-z1iXz3SDo • http://edutechwiki.unige.ch/en/Main_Page • http://www.edudemic.com/a-quick-look-at-the-history-of-educat / • http://blitzlondon.blogspot.com/2012/10/history-of- educational-technology.html
  5. 5. Kindergarten technology (I miss being 5) • I remember Windows 95 well; it was my first operating system. Everything from its sounds to its visuals was magical. As I will go into soon, games were my main passion. Even in Kindergarten, I played learning games all the time.www.guidebookgallery.org
  6. 6. High school technology • I thought I would try to do something different for this slide. In high school, the piece of technology that helped me the most was the mp3 player. To this day, the thought of sitting down to complete homework or study sends chills down my spine Studying and homework with music, though? Tolerable. I would have accomplished far less in academics without my constant friend (now deceased), the Zune HD. news.cnet.com
  7. 7. College technology • In the picture, I have my smartphone and laptop computer. My laptop computer helps me to keep track of everything. I use Dropbox to sync all of my work, and to share my Honors project with my research mentor. My laptop helps me to come to class and create documents, presentations, and more. I use my smartphone to keep track of my schedule (with Google calendar sync) and OneNote to track my various projects.
  8. 8. A vivid technology learning experience • Creating my online survey for my Honors project. It will go live soon!
  9. 9. A technology I want to use in my classroom • Minecraft is a popular video game, but also has great potential as a learning tool. It can be used to teach, amongst countless concepts, proportions. In the game, for example, you might want to build a wooden house. Each block of wood you have is worth 3 wooden planks. You could use this situation to teach proportions: 1 block of wood per 3 wooden planks. www.iammain.org.uk
  10. 10. My vision of the classroom of the future • Not much different. I love educational technology and think it has great potential. I will definitely use tools like Google Docs to teach collaboration and editing skills, or tools such as Voicethread to help my students share themselves with me. However, as a prospective elementary school teacher or clinical psychologist, I would never want to instruct my students or work with my patients through a screen. I need to have them right there with me.
  11. 11. A challenge for teaching • I now see copyright/fair use as a necessary evil, but I am still a little disappointed about the hoops we as teacher will have to jump through in obtaining content for our students.
  12. 12. Words of wisdom Children Learn What They Live (Abridged) By Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D. If children live with hostility, they learn to fight. If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive. If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves. If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy. If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy. If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty. If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence. If children live with tolerance, they learn patience. If children live with praise, they learn appreciation. If children live with acceptance, they learn to love. If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves. If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal. If children live with sharing, they learn generosity. If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness. If children live with fairness, they learn justice. If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect. If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them. If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live. • Thank You !!!
