    • The Benefits of Technology in the Classroom By: Jennifer Langer
    • How can we presently use technology effectively in the classroom? The current question to ask is if technology is being used effectively in the classroom and verify that it does improve student learning Problem Statement
    • Engaged Learning Concepts
    • Engaged learning indicators Definition 1. Tasks 1. Challenging and authentic. 2. Assessment 2. Performance-based and an ongoing part of instruction. 3. Learning Outcomes 3. The learner is responsible for his/her own learning. Also, the learner collaborates with others. 4. Grouping is heterogeneous 4. Different ability levels and backgrounds. 5. Teacher Roles 5. Facilitator, guide and co-learner. The teacher is an explorer and helps students construct their own opinions. 6. Student Roles 6. Producer and teacher. They are encouraged to teach others and explore new ideas.
    • The Research
      • According to a survey by Dr. C. Terry Morrow (1995), a professor of agricultural engineering at Penn State, some of the benefits of technology are:
      • It enhances the curriculum
      • It increased flexibility of
      • presentations
      • Improves lectures
      • It provides visualization in a variety
      • of formats
    • Comments by the teachers and the students
      • Some comments made by teachers after the in-service:
      • “ I enjoyed using this new technology in the classroom”
      • “ The kids really listen and pay attention when I do power point presentations”
      • “ I think technology has altered the way students learn…for the better”
      • “ I enjoy seeing the work that my students can do”
      • “ I plan on using it more next year in the classroom”
      • “ I use the department web site regularly now”
      • Some comments made by students in a post survey about technology were:
      • “ I enjoy using technology in class”
      • “ I wish we did more online projects”
      • “ I think technology is fun”
      • “ Technology is different, and I don’t like doing the same old thing all the time”
      • “ I hope we use more technology next year”
      • “ It was nice using more technology in class because it helped me when I had to use it for another class”
    • Survey Results
    • Teachers and Students Access to computers at home
    • Technology use of teachers August-November  
    • Student use of technology outside of the classroom August-November
    • As seen from the presentation, technology can be a useful tool in the classroom. It also does not mean that teachers need to abandon all of their current practices. Technology offers teachers a new outlet. It gives them new opportunities to reach all students and promote life long learning for all.
