    • The use of technology in the K-8 Science Curriculum

    • Hmmm…..Technology?
      Technology is the process by which humans modify nature to meet their needs and wants. Most people, however, think of technology in terms of its artifacts: computers and software, aircraft, pesticides, water-treatment plants, birth-control pills, and microwave ovens, to name a few.
    • Integrating Technology...
      Effective technology integration is achieved when its use supports curricular goals. It must support four key components of learning:
      active engagement
      participation in groups
      frequent interaction and feedback
      connection to real-world experts
      Integrating technology into classroom instruction means more than teaching basic computer skills and software programs in a separate computer class.
    • Proposed Guidelines for Using Technology in the Preparation of Science Teachers:
      Technology should be introduced in the context of Science content.
      Technology instruction in Science should take advantage of the unique features of technology.
      Technology should make scientific views more accessible
      Technology instruction should develop students’ understanding of the relationship between technology and science.
    • Technology’s Significant Changes
      From studies that used proper controls on variables it has been learned that computer mediated instruction, including multimedia instruction, makes significant differences in student learning in four interrelated areas:
      Learning Retention
      Learning Time
      Learner Attitude
    • Research says….
      Using Technology in the Classroom within the Science Curriculum effectively impact student learning.
      Student are motivated, engaged and learning actively.
      Learning is authentic.
      Learning is collaborative.
      Students are explorers and producers of knowledge.
      Instruction and learning is integrated across the curriculum.
      Students are proficient in digital age literacy skills.

    • Conclusion
      Technology affords you as a Science teacher the opportunity to address the individual needs of your diverse learners.
      Modeling the use of technologies in the context of learning science is critical in teacher education for another reason.
