Nmc ed 480 using technology as a remedial resource to improve 042512

  1. 1. USING TECHNOLOGY AS A REMEDIALRESOURCE TO IMPROVE STUDENTLEARNINGMisael J. TalonED 480 Educational TechnologySpring 2012
  2. 2. PART 1DIFFERENT TYPES OF TECHNOLOGY AND THEIREDUCATIONAL APPLICATIONS
  3. 3. Many differenttypes oftechnology canbe used tosupport andenhance learning.Everything fromvideo content anddigitalmoviemaking tolaptop computingand handheldtechnologies(Marshall, 2002)have been used inclassrooms, andnew uses oftechnology suchas podcasting areconstantlyemerging.
  4. 4. Various technologiesdeliver different kindsof content and servedifferent purposes in theclassroom. For example,word processing and e-mail promotecommunication skills;database andspreadsheet programspromote organizationalskills; and modelingsoftware promotes theunderstanding ofscience and mathconcepts. It is importantto consider how theseelectronic technologiesdiffer and whatcharacteristics makethem important asvehicles for education(Becker, 1994).
  5. 5. Technologiesavailable inclassrooms todayrange from simpletool-basedapplications (such asword processors) toonline repositories ofscientific data andprimary historicaldocuments, tohandheld computers,closed-circuittelevision channels,and two-way distancelearning classrooms.Even the cell phonesthat many studentsnow carry with themcan be used to learn(Prensky, 2005).
  6. 6. Each technology is likely toplay a different role in studentslearning. Rather than trying todescribe the impact of alltechnologies as if they were thesame, researchers need to thinkabout what kind oftechnologies are being used inthe classroom and for whatpurposes. Two generaldistinctions can be made.Students can learn "from"computers—where technologyused essentially as tutors andserves to increase studentsbasic skills and knowledge;and can learn "with"computers—where technologyis used a tool that can beapplied to a variety of goals inthe learning process and canserve as a resource to helpdevelop higher order thinking,creativity and research skills(Reeves, 1998; Ringstaff &Kelley, 2002).
  7. 7. The primary form ofstudent learning "from"computers is what Murphy,Penuel, Means, Korbak andWhaley (2001) describe asdiscrete educationalsoftware (DES) programs,such as integrated learningsystems (ILS), computer-assisted instruction (CAI),and computer-basedinstruction (CBI). Thesesoftware applications arealso among the mostwidely availableapplications of educationaltechnology in schoolstoday, along with word-processing software, andhave existed in classroomsfor more than 20 years(Becker, Ravitz, & Wong,1999).
  8. 8. According to Murphy et al,teachers use DES not onlyto supplement instruction,as in the past, but also tointroduce topics, providemeans for self-study, andoffer opportunities to learnconcepts otherwiseinaccessible to students.The software alsomanifests two keyassumptions about howcomputers can assistlearning. First, the usersability to interact with thesoftware is narrowlydefined in ways designedspecifically to promotelearning with the tools.Second, computers areviewed as a medium forlearning, rather than astools that could supportfurther learning (Murphy etal, 2001).
  9. 9. Bruce and Levin(1997), for example,look at ways in whichthe tools, techniques,and applications oftechnology cansupport integrated,inquiry-basedlearning to "engagechildren in exploring,thinking, reading,writing, researching,inventing, problem-solving, andexperiencing theworld."
  10. 10. TechniquesofTechnologyin differentfields
  11. 11. They developed theidea of technology asmedia with fourdifferentfocuses: media forinquiry (such as datamodeling,spreadsheets, accessto online databases,access to onlineobservatories andmicroscopes, andhypertext), media forcommunication (suchas word processing,e-mail, synchronousconferencing,graphics software,simulations, andtutorials),
  12. 12. media forconstruction (such asrobotics, computer-aided design, andcontrol systems),and media forexpression (such asinteractive video,animation software,and musiccomposition).
  13. 13. PART 2UsingTechnology in Remedial Resources in Reading Writing Math
  14. 14. READING Who Needs Read:OutLoud?Read:OutLoud was chosen as the textreader for every school in Indiana andVirginia
  15. 15. HTTP://WWW.DONJOHNSTON.COM/PRODUCTS/READ_OUTLOUD/ Who Needs Read: Out Loud? Read: Out Loud 6 makes it easy to provide access to the new electronic books required in IDEA, and the included web browser makes the internet fully accessible. Read: Out Loud provides accessibility supports like text-to-speech and study tools that help you read with comprehension. Providing access to the curriculum is easier than ever with Read:Out Loud.
  16. 16.  Research Study: Quasi-Experimental Research Study Shows Increased Writing Gains when Technology is Paired with Instruction Background In 2005, the National Center for Technology Innovation (NCTI) issued a grant to examine the effects on student outcomes using validated writing strategies paired with an innovative and universally-designed technology program called SOLO. This quasi-experimental design utilized pre- and post-test groups in nine classrooms serving students in grades 3, 4 and 5.
  17. 17.  from Technology & Learning This feature-rich literacy software can help struggling readers realize their potential. For many students, integrating reading, writing, spelling, and other literacy components is a seamless process, but for those with learning difficulties, it is anything but smooth..

  22. 22. HTTP://WWW.RENLEARN.COM/Improve Parental Involvementwith Renaissance Home ConnectWith the new Renaissance Home Connect, you can keep parentsinvolved by linking the school and home to make personalized readingpractice even more effective. By logging on from their home computer,students and parents can:
  23. 23.  See progress toward reading goals. Conduct book searches using AR Bookfinder Review results on AR quizzes. View number of books read, words read, and quizzes passed. And much, much more. In a data-driven, decision-making framework, such as Response to Intervention, parental involvement is especially essential, and documenting communication with parents is vital in Tier 2 and beyond. Renaissance Home Connect involves parents by providing a direct link to what students are working on at school.
