  • 3. What is Educational Technology?
    Processes:
    Learning Theories
    Models of Curricula Design
    Acknowledgement of Future Inventions
    Tools:
    Film
    Slides
    Computers
    Internet
    Productivity Software
    Learning Software
  • 4. Why use Technology?
    Engaging – Using technology allows you to engage the learner’s attention and enables students to create their own work and feel more control over the learning experience.
    Unique – Facilitates the creation of unique experiences for students.
    Learning Theory and Approaches – Enables different types of interactions; cooperative learning, student-centered learning and problem solving.
    Teacher Productivity – Teachers can use software to create lesson plans and handouts. In addition, computers provide easy access to numerous resources that can be used in the classroom.
    Skill Building – Students can improve their technological skills and learn how technology can help them succeed.
  • 5. ADDIE Model for Technology Integration Planning
    Analysis:
    What type of skills relating to technology will our teachers need to possess?
    Are there any defined gaps that technology might be able to fill?
    Design:
    What will the administrative goals be?
    What will the teacher productivity goals be?
    Development:
    How will we communicate our plan?
    What rules will govern the use of our new technology?
    Implementation:
    Is everything and everyone in place to make the plan successful?
    Do all key stakeholders buy in to the plan, and how will they assist in the implementation process?
    Evaluation:
    Are we meeting our goals?
    What changes can be made to assist us in reaching our goals?
  • 6. ABC’s of Technology
    Technology Must Be…
    Accessible– Teachers need to know how to use the technology so that it is helpful to them.
    Beneficial and enhancing for the learners – There has to be a reason to use technology.
    Cost effective
    Demonstrating something that cannot be done in a less complex way
    Easy to use
  • 7. Article 1 Reflection
    This article was insightful because:
    The questions the author poses on integrating technology really help to answer the questions of why should I be using technology and how do I use in within my classroom.
    The article also gives great examples of why technology is conducive to education.
    Also, the author provides many examples of ways to help teachers to determine on their own how they should use technology and ways to assess the success after technology is implemented.
    “There are a myriad of definitions of educational technology, but it can succinctly be defined as processes and tools used to address educational needs.”
    –Renée B. Rittner on defining educational technology.
  • 8. What is CALL?
    CALL is Computer Assisted Language Learning.
    The CALL lessons allows students to learn on their own using structured and unstructured interactive lessons.
    Bidirectional learning
    Individualized learning
    CALL is a tool that helps teachers to facilitate language learning process and can be used to reinforce what has been learned in the classrooms.
    It can also be used as remedial to help learners with limited language proficiency.
  • 9. Why use CALL?
    Using CALL takes the central focus away from the teacher as a conveyor of knowledge and gives students a learning experience that is as realistic as possible where they play a central role.
    CALL tends to emphasize fluency over accuracy to allow students to take risks in using more student-centered activities and to cooperate, rather than compete.
    Using CALL provides an opportunity for students to be less dependent on a teacher and have more freedom to experiment on their own with natural language in natural or semi-natural settings.
  • 10. Article 2 Reflection
    This article was insightful because:
    I had never heard of CALL before or anything like it so I learned about a new form of technology that I may possible use in the future.
    The author does a good job of differentiating other internet and computer resources from the CALL program.
    Also, the author describes why technology is becoming an essential part of the classroom and a student’s educational career.
    “Students learn grammar and other sub-skills by making intelligent guesses bases on the input they have experienced.” –Marmara Elt on language learning
  • 11. Promoting Technology in Schools
    More than 90 percent of all schools are connected to the Internet,
    More than 33 percent of teachers have Internet access in their classrooms but many of those teachers admit that they are not making as much use of technology as they could.
    Nearly 30 percent of teachers said their students use computers only one hour per week
    Nearly 40 percent said their students do not use computers in the classroom at all .
  • 12. Why is Technology not used?
    Factors affecting if and how technology is used:
    placement of computers for equitable access
    technical support
    effective goals for technology use
    new roles for teachers
    time for ongoing professional development
    appropriate coaching of teachers at different skill levels
    teacher incentives for use
    availability of educational software
    sustained funding for technology
  • 13. Article 3 Reflection
    This article is insightful because:
    The author provides goals that should be met when technology is being used which helps teachers understand what they are doing right and what still needs work.
    The author also provides many examples of how to promote technology in the classroom along with links for more information which can be extremely useful if some of the goals for technology use are not being met.
    This article is a great one because the author offers the topic from every point of view and the good and the bad in each view. So you can find where you most fit in and then adjust accordingly.
    “Teachers must become comfortable letting students move into domains of knowledge where they themselves lackexpertise, and they must be able to model their own learning process when they encounter phenomena they do not understand or questions they cannot answer.”
    – Jan Gahalaon the technology hesitancy
  • 14. Conclusion
    All of the articles I found were very insightful and about all different aspects of Education Technology. All of the articles offered me new information about technology and why and how it is important in the classroom. I am sure I will refer back to these articles when I have a classroom of my own to help make technology in my classroom most efficient.
