  • Elementary In-Service Teacher’s Use of Computers in the Elementary Classroom by: Janell D. Wilson, Charles C. Notar, and Barbara Yunker “…teachers tend to teach the same way they, themselves, were taught” This study, done in 2003, states that the way elementary school is taught hasn’t significantly changed since the early 90’s It explores how 50 elementary school teachers incorporated the use of computers in their classroom. The teachers in this study filled out surveys and responded to interview questions asked by pre-service teachers
  • Elementary In-Service Teacher’s Use of Computers in the Elementary Classroom by: Janell D. Wilson, Charles C. Notar, and Barbara Yunker The results showed that the teachers used the computer (other than internet) an average of only 1.9 hours per week, mostly for recording grades (72%) They averaged 1.8 hours of internet usage per week and used it mainly to search for instructional materials and lesson plans (40%) As for student, they had an average of 1.5 hours computer time per week, only after other assignments were complete or as a reward
  • Elementary In-Service Teacher’s Use of Computers in the Elementary Classroom What I think…  This study shows that some teachers do not understand how to integrate computers in their teaching methods  If teachers aren’t teaching students how to use computers at an early age then it will take them longer to learn the skills they need to succeed in higher education and in the workplace
  • Preparing Preservice Teachers to Integrate Technology with the Elementary Literacy Program by: Susan Watts-Taffe, Carolyn B. Gwinn, Julie R. Johnson, and Marcia L. Horn For this article, the authors looked at a university that had 2 literacy methods classes for elementary ed. Majors in which about 150 students were enrolled Since the instructor had limited technology experience, a public school teacher helped assist in the technology integration Seven 30 to 40 minute lessons and lesson extentions  Reflecting on and writing about featured technology  Observing how technology was integrated to curriculum in field placements
  • Preparing Preservice Teachers to Integrate Technology with the Elementary Literacy Program by: Susan Watts-Taffe, Carolyn B. Gwinn, Julie R. Johnson, and Marcia L. Horn To follow up with this they followed 3 of these students the following year when they became 1st year teachers The teachers kept a portfolio and also attended meetings throughout the year Site visits Responded to e-mails  5 sets sent over 6 months  5 questions each
  • Preparing Preservice Teachers to Integrate Technology with the Elementary Literacy Program by: Susan Watts-Taffe, Carolyn B. Gwinn, Julie R. Johnson, and Marcia L. Horn
  • Preparing Preservice Teachers to Integrate Technology with the Elementary Literacy Program What I think… This article really got to the heart of the issue If teachers are not taught to use technology, how can we expect them to use it properly By adding technology integration to teacher education classes, and supplementing it with field experience we can begin to see a change
  • Technology in Education vs. Technology Education by: Lelanna Moran  Computer skills are required for most high paying jobs, so we need to be teaching children as much as we can Most teachers are computer illiterate and one class on computers isn’t going to fix that  “Teachers need to master computer technology, just as they have mastered reading, writing, and arithmetic” We need to start teaching computer skills as early as possible
  • Technology in Education vs. Technology Education by: Lelanna Moran Curriculum is key  “You wouldn’t think of teaching American history without a curriculum, so why would you consider teaching computers without one?” Future kids school technology solutions  Software for introducing students to technology while promoting higer-level thinking  Also provided teachers with training and networked computers, scanners, printers, and CD-ROMs
  • Technology in Education vs. Technology Education What I think… While this article was older than the others, I really liked it Stressed importance of teaching technology at a young age It showed that a very good first step to getting technology in classrooms Showed that this can be done even at schools with limited resources, offered suggestions
  • Conclusion Technology has become a vital part of our society therefore it is something that we need to be teaching our students If teachers don’t understand it, how can they teach it? By integrating technology into teacher education we are not only helping the future teachers, we are helping their future students Once they understand it they can use it more effectively for teaching all subjects and also teach their students how to properly use it
