Technology and Me A personal timeline of educational technology
My name is Art Wong
I started school in 1991 at Heeia Elementary located in Kaneohe.
I graduated in 2002 from James B. Castle High School
I then started college at UH Manoa in 2002
When I finish my certification , I hope to become a High School Art Teacher.
My definition of educational technology Educational technology is a tool that allows us to not only to enhance our work and do things more creatively but to allow us to be connected to the world around us and beyond.
My First Sony this was a TV art tool like a early Photoshop.
KIDPIX, Math Blasters
High school technology
Portable CD players
Page Maker, Photoshop
Web Chat/ Video Conferencing
A vivid technology learning experience
Chatting with people online via MSN or Skype
Connecting with people from all over the world.
Able to find an answer online to any question
Able to explore the world via the internet.
A technology I want to use in my classroom
HP Smart Touch Computers since in an art class it would be nice if my students get to interact with the technology as if they were actually interacting with it as art pieces. So Maya 3D rendering projects can be treated like Clay projects.
My vision of the classroom of the future
Well it would be nice if all computers became touch and 3D holographic like in the Movie Iron Man and you could just mold and sculpt 3D holograms like you could clay.
A challenge for teaching
Keeping up with the most current forms of technology and finding ways to bring those technologies into the classrooms so that my class can be constantly up to date with new things.
Words of wisdom
