  • 1. Technology and Me A personal timeline of educational technology
  • 2. Overview
    • My name is Juli Umetsu
    • I started school in the 1960’s in Michigan
    • I graduated from high school in 1976 in Naperville, IL
    • I first went to college at the University of Iowa in 1976 and received my degree Bachelors degree in Business Administration
    • I followed this with a post-bacc degree in Secondary Education from the University of Phoenix
    • When I finish my current studies and earn my MEd degree in educational technology, I hope to become a better college instructor, utilizing current technology in my curriculum.
  • 3. My definition of educational technology I believe that educational technology is an exciting, ever-changing, always useful tool to improve learning in a student centered, technology rich, classroom.
  • 4. Web sites on ed tech history
    • http://
  • 5. Kindergarten technology Of course, Kindergarten nap time was the best after a difficult day of tech-teach! Books Blackboards &
  • 6. High school technology
    • I attended three different high schools in two different countries. Very different schools…very different cultures. However, one thing was constant . My classroom in the 1970’s came with the same standard equipment: slide projector , screen , and overhead.
  • 7. College technology
    • Basic Computer Language & DOS
    • Computers too expensive for the average student (BUT every student had an electric typewriter!)
  • 8. A vivid technology learning experience
    • I love Open Table! This is an innovative restaurant reservation system that allows the user (diner) to make a confirmed reservation at thousands of restaurants around the world. Reservations at of a few of my favorite restaurants, shown below, were made using
    Calle Ocho in New York, NY French Laundry in Napa, CA Eleven Madison in New York, NY
  • 9. A technology I want to use in my classroom
    • In the culinary field, it would be great to incorporate the use of computer technology to order directly from the farmers – ordering and receiving only the freshest produce, harvested that day!
  • 10. My vision of the classroom of the future…
    • A student centered learning environment that is technology enhanced with lessons that are always meaningful to the students. Although this should be standard in all classrooms today, I feel that until all administrators and educators “buy-in” it will still be a vision for the future.
  • 11. A challenge for teaching
    • I would challenge the Maui Culinary Academy to use Web 2.0 tools such as not just as a teaching platform, but as an opportunity for our students to creatively post recipes and interact with Chefs around in the global community.
  • 12. Words of wisdom
    • “ The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read or write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”
    • - Alvin Toffler
