  • 1. Technology and Me
    A personal timeline of educational technology
  • 2. Overview
    My name is Kim Nguyen
    I started school in the 1992 in Pearl City, Hawaii
    I graduated from high school in 2005 in Pearl City, Hawaii
    I first went to college at the University of Hawaii at Manoa in 2005
    When I finish my degree, I hope to become a secondary education teacher, teaching world history.
  • 3. My definition of educational technology
    • Educational technology is the study and use of technology, not necessarily computers, in an educational setting.
    • 4. It allows students to gain a broader view of the world that is not limited to a textbook definition.
    • 5. It is a field that is constantly evolving.
  • Web sites on ed tech history
    History, the History of Computers, and the History of Computers in A Brief History of Education
    Technology in Education
    History of Technology Education in the U.S.
  • 6. Kindergarten technology
    In kindergarten, we did not use computers often, but there was a school computer lab for the older students.
    Overhead projectors were used to show images.
    The television set and VCR allowed us to watch films in class.
  • 7. High school technology
    Computers were used to type out papers and other homework assignments, and for research purposes.
    Some teachers, not all, used PowerPoint presentations when lecturing.
    Overhead projectors were still used to show images, and other documents.
    VCRs and DVD players were used to show educational films.
  • 8. College technology
    PowerPoint's are used much more frequently.
    Document cameras are used in a few lecture halls, and overhead projectors in smaller classrooms.
    Online websites, such as WebCT, Laulima, and Ning are used for online discussions, and to access classroom resources online.

  • 9. A vivid technology learning experience
    In 5th and 6th grade, students could borrow Alphasmarts, portable word processing machines.
    Kidpix, an Apple program, was the first computer program I remember using.
    WebCT was used for my first online class, and it provided a different learning experience.
    Very similar to Laulima.

  • 10. A technology I want to use in my classroom
    I would love to be able to use webcams in order to have students interact with and learn more about the cultures and histories of other students from across the globe.
    A site similar to Laulima where students can discuss course materials and interact with each other.
  • 11. My vision of the classroom of the future
    Desks will have built in touch screens, and students will be able to follow along on PowerPoint slides and take notes that they can save and access at the end of class.
    Books will be in eBook form, and students will also be able to access them from their desks.

  • 12. A challenge for teaching
    Students may gain a strong dependency on:
    using things like spell check and they won’t actually learn how to do things on their own.
    Using only internet sources, and not books or other sources for information.
    New technology won’t be accessible to all students outside of the classroom.
  • 13. Words of wisdom
    “And in order to succeed in later life, you need creative skills because look at how fast the world is changing.”
    Robert Sternberg
