Transcript of "Technology in the ECE Classroom"

  1. 1. Amy Hiatt IP&T 287, Section 4 Week 11
  2. 2. Research Findings about Instructional Technology  “Technology in Early Childhood Education: Finding the Balance”  There are 5 essential Areas of Development  Social and Emotional  Language  Physical and Motor  Cognitive/General Knowledge  Approaches toward Learning
  3. 3. Technology and Child Development  While technology cannot replace human interactions, it can be a wonderful supplemental tool, providing opportunities for development in all 5 areas  Developmentally appropriate technologies used in such a manner that the child benefits in some way  Very young children probably would not benefit- too hard for them  Computers can and should be integrated into the classroom curriculum and will provide students with valuable learning experiences
  4. 4. Stellarium  Good for letting students view the sky (day or night) at any given time and place. Students who live within city limits who normally can't see the stars very well will especially benefit from using this resource.  Teachers can use this to help students track the moon’s phases or the changes that occur over time in the night sky as the Earth revolves around the Sun.
  5. 5. National Library of Virtual Manipulatives  http://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/category_g_1_t_1. html This website provides virtual manipulatives that all ages can use to practice and experience math concepts like addition, multiplication, and even up to 12th grade level math. It includes such topics as basic calculations, algebra, geometry, measurements, and data analysis and probability.  Teachers can use this to give students extra practice with concepts discussed in class, especially those who need more concrete experiences.
  6. 6. Eduplace.com  www.eduplace.com/kids/hme/k_5/  This website contains many different educational activities. The one pictured on the following slide gives students a review of grammar, then gives them a chance to proofread a brief selection. This would help them to practice the grammar skills they gain in class.  Teachers can use this as a supplement to grammar lessons. Once concepts are discussed in class, students can use this resource to get additional practice.
