Teaching students how to learn begins in Kindergarten. The earlier the student can be reached will assist the student throughout their scholastic career. Accessing Curriculum Through Technology Tools (ACTTT) is a newly developed model for providing access to students with disabilities within the general curriculum. The students worked in pairs or in a team and sharpened their communication skills while they worked on a variety of activities. The students used technology to share ideas, problem-solve, organize and construct concept maps.
Technology is changing the way that teachers teach and students learn. Academic institutions are embracing technology because it is becoming a major deciding factor for attracting students and corporate partners. Social networking tools are helping to build connections within academic settings and the expansion of access to educational reference resources is supported by technological advances. These advances may lead to profound changes in the way courses are taught. Courses can become more student-centered and outcome-based than before. This will help students feel like they are able to design their own academic direction.
Almost every student has access to the internet. Communication skills are being promoted by the various communication methods available to students through technology, such as instant messaging, email, blogging, Facebook or Myspace accounts.
Education today encompasses technology in many different ways. Teachers are altering their strategies within the classroom to reach as many students as possible.
Technology is weaved into education today in multiple ways. Teachers are using technology to improve teaching strategies, student participation, providing access to those with disabilities, preparing graduates for higher education and the workforce, and overall success of the student population.
Teachers are able to provide students with various ways to access information. Technology plays a huge role today, and classrooms are becoming more equipped every day. Using different technologies while teaching can help students comprehend the information more completely. Technology plays a vital role in helping to improve student outcomes. It advances student learning by engaging the students and facilitating the transference of knowledge from teacher to student. It encourages participation, helps students pay better attention to what is being taught, and facilitates student success rates.
Classroom teachers are dependent upon having effective technology within the classroom. Administrators must also be provided with ongoing technical proficiency and support. This is important to the success of a technology based curriculum. Educators must utilize technology within their classroom to develop innovative ways to encourage student learning and success.
