    Technology And Me Technology And Me Presentation Transcript

    • Technology and Me A personal timeline of educational technology Erica L Colon
    • Overview
      • My name is Erica Colon
      • - Attended Westfield Academy and Central School (1990-1996) in Westfield, NY
      • - Graduated from SUNY Oswego in 2000 with a teaching degree in secondary science
      • Moved to Hawaii and earned M.Ed for Education Administration from UH Manoa in 2007
      • Currently working on Ph.D in Curriculum and Instruction at UH Manoa to earn a position as a teacher educator someday and work on science education research
    • My definition of educational technology replace this with your personal definition - think carefully about what you read and don’t just use the one you learned in the lesson or found on the web
    • History of Education Technology
      • History, the History of Computers, and the History of Computers in Education http://www.csulb.edu/~murdock/histofcs.html
      • A Brief History of Distance Education http://www.bsu.edu/classes/nasseh/study/history.html
      • Computer-based Technology and Learning: Evolving Uses and Expectations http://www.ncrel.org/tplan/cbtl/toc.htm
    • Kindergarten technology
      • Scanners - scanning pictures of students or other items (environmental print - i.e. cereal box) into the computer.
      • Leap Frog Products - has a variety of educational products to promote early literacy and math.
      • Digital Camera - take pictures of students, of student work, environmental pictures (building, staff members, field trips) to create books.
    • High school technology
      • High Tech High is the epitome of technology in education – please check out this website to watch more about it!
      • http://www.edutopia.org/collaboration-age-high-tech-technology-video
      • I feel this video is more powerful to show educators what students have access to more than a list I could compile
    • College technology
      • The most common technologies used by college students are e-mail, CMS (Content Management System), course web sites, spreadsheets, and presentation software
      • Some common CMS systems are ANGEL, WebCT, Blackboard, Desire2Learn, FirstClass, Sakai, and Moodle
    • A vivid technology learning experience
      • Me sitting in my college “classroom”!
    • A technology I want to use in my classroom
      • I have always loved the idea of using IClicker to help engage my students
      • I would also like to have smartboards for the students
    • My vision of the classroom of the future
      • My textbooks on Kindle
      • Interactive smartboards between me and the students
      • Students having Blackberries or some device to upload work directly to my computer
    • A challenge for teaching
      • The greatest challenge I see for using this kind of technology in the classroom is getting the funding for resources
      • As of now, I can’t even get each student their own Chemistry textbook
      • Another challenge that I have already discovered is that by the time DOE gets us technology, it’s already outdated 
    • Words of wisdom
      • Students that learn using technology have an advantage in the “real world.” I believe that technology enhances classroom instruction. It also seems to help engage students and capture their attention. What teacher or parent wouldn’t want that for their digital native?
