Technology and Me<br />A personal timeline of educational technology<br />
Overview<br />My name is Travis Oh<br />I started school in 1990 in Honolulu.<br />I graduated from high school in 2004 in Honolulu.<br />I first went to college at UH Manoain ‘04<br />When I finish my degree, I hope to become an educator or something that revolves around music.<br />
My definition of educational technology<br />- Is a tool to help students in whatever subject area they are studying. However, students need to have a firm grasp of the subject before technology can be integrated. <br />

Kindergarten technology<br />Didn’t use computers in the class<br />Computers during that time that would be used in the classroom would be apples.<br />
High school technology<br />We used Mac computers<br />Learned to design web pages<br />Mostly used to type papers<br />
College technology<br />By now most students own a lap top computer, either an apple or pc<br />Some classrooms use “smartboards”<br />Over heads are still used<br />
A vivid technology learning experience<br />Instead of writing music notation, a program can be used<br />“Music slowdowners” to hear every detail of a song<br />MP3’s<br />audio clips can be accessed from a Class homepage <br />
A technology I want to use in my classroom<br />I would like students to have access to a MP3 device that can also record<br />Students can hear what they sound like as well as listen to music geared towards the classroom<br />
My vision of the classroom of the future<br />Every student will be assigned a personal Mp3 player as well as a laptop. <br />Programs on the laptop will be geared towards music content<br />
A challenge for teaching<br />Advances in technology are rapid and new technology will be outdated sooner than expected<br />Getting students to use a program that they never heard about. <br />Having access to these programs so students can improve their technological skills<br />
Words of wisdom<br />One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man. ~Elbert Hubbard, The Roycroft Dictionary and Book of Epigrams, 1923<br />
