-1

Published on

Presented April 2005 at the 67th Annual International Technology Education Association, Kansas City, Missouri.

Technology surrounds us all. Yet we only train a select group of educations in the broad scope of technology. Mainstream education prepares educators in the use of the technology required for the classroom and not for life. We will introduce a new approach using existing technology by implementing a technology lab as a core course for all education majors.

Review the need for technology education in society and in education. Identify the challenges education faces as technology advances and education tries to adapt. Present an alternative approach to the traditional technology model for teacher education.
  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] Identify & define technology education as understood by mainstream K-12 educators and administrators. Review existing education models for technology education. Review ITEA’s model for technology education Contrast ITEA’s vision of technology education with educations model. Review the needs and our exposure to technology. In education In society Identify the challenges education faces as technology advances and education tries to adapt. The need to know it all or not. Education’s reliance on technology in-service after the fact. The need for educators to understand enough about technology to motivate and inspire students. Present an alternative approach to the traditional technology model for teacher education. A new foundation for teacher education programs. The model currently being developed at CMSU. Requirement for a hands on technology course (not educational technology) The Technology Learning Center Integrated thematic engagements developed by Creative Learning Systems (2004) in eight basic areas of technology: 1) Computer graphics; 2) Computer simulation; 3) Control technology; 4) Electric and Pneumatic Circuitry; 5) Multimedia; 6) Physical simulation; 7) Publishing; 8) Science and data acquisition. Project objectives: 1) Provide all education majors hands on experience with a broad range of technology. 2) Provide in‑service for CMSU faculty and K through 12 teachers locally, through out the state and nationally. 3) Provide classes on campus in partnership with the local public school (grades 6 through 12), allowing the public schools to expanding their course offerings and access to advanced technology. 4) Provide curriculum development opportunities to integrate the lab into existing classes both at the university level and in the public schools. The benefits of change. Abstract: The Twentieth Century was characterized by increasingly rapid innovation & technological advancement. Public schools & teacher training institutions have been challenged to change the basic principles underlying the K-16 learning process & improving the technical skills, the general science, technology, engineering, & mathematics (STEM) preparation. It is increasingly obvious that the current paradigm for educating our society & our teachers is set for a change. The TLC model provides the solution. The TLC will produce independent, self-directed learners & incorporate the use of cutting-edge technology to nurture & develop learner skills that include individual goal setting, problem solving, communication & collaboration, innovation, self-evaluation & an understanding of the technology.
  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] How many of you are carrying cell phones, PDA, IPods, etc? Is it slowing down? Rapid innovation and advancement We are in a society that is dependant on Technology now! There is a demand to now more and a desire to be independent and able to do it our self's. (Effect on Science, Teachers, Society)
  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] This is the reason why teachers need to be trained. There was a time where school ahead of industry, but not any more. Story: Benton Jr. high, student teaching, technology grant, student focus. Change is inevitable if we are to move forward. http://www.nationaledtechplan.org/voices.asp
  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] How can technology best be defined? STL defines technology as “the innovation, change, or modification of the natural environment in order to satisfy perceived human wants and needs” (ITEA, 2000a, p. 242). This is compatible with the definition provided in the National Science Education Standards, which states, “…the goal of technology is to make modifications in the world to meet human needs” (NRC, 1996, p. 24). Parallel to these definitions, the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s (AAAS) Benchmarks for Science Literacy presents the following: “In the broadest sense, technology extends our abilities to change the world: to cut, shape, or put together materials, to move things from one place to another; to reach farther with our hands, voices, and senses” (1993, p. 41). In the NAE and NRC publication, Technically Speaking, technology is described as “…the process by which humans modify nature to meet their needs and wants” (2002, p. 2). All four of these definitions of technology are very similar and reinforce each other.

  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] With this in mind we can look at where we are at when it comes to education. On one side of the canyon is General Education and on the other side is Technology Education.
  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] General Education – we have all the traditional subjects.
  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] And there is Technology Education – With an ever increasing array of specialty subject areas. But don’t both GE and TE use technology? are they both not ever increasingly dependant on Technology?
  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] So both areas and all of their specialties all could benefit from a technology core for all of education and all of it’s specialties.
  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] “ Reforms within the system will require strong leadership and a willingness to restructure the learning environment in fundamental ways.” -- Conclusions, National Technology Plan, 2005 --
  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] We must realize how LITTLE we take advantage of technology; compared to what continues to stack up. We must address this ignorance & start teaching technology as a fundamental. How much faster would technology advance if more people were using it? More users = Less cost Technology crosses all disciplines. OBJECTIVE Teach teachers technology Expose teachers to all the technology we can. Is Technology just computers? Gallop Poll, 2004 When you hear the word “technology,” what first comes to mind? (an open-ended question) 68% Computers 5% Electronics 97% of men and 99% of women believe, given the broad definition of technology, that its study should be part of the schools’ curriculum. Using a broad definition of technology as “modifying our natural world to meet human needs,” do you believe the study of technology should or should not be included in the school curriculum ? 98% YES
  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] ?Not Required Revised -- NSF - Need for a change in format & approach (about the influence of technology in all areas of study/life) .
  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] ? Do we use and where? At the End?
  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] From the Freshman level it: Provides core or general technology education that is multi-disciplinary or cross college. TLC - Norm not the Exception Huge advantage for the future. Typical Classroom of the future. Cover the fundamentals. Multi-disciplinary, multi-user tech center.
  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] For the Jr. or Seniors or advanced students: Brings together the technology of various colleges & disciplines. Providing a Central High Technology facility for advanced classes or capstone courses. Capstone courses can know be multi-disciplinary & projects can draw from technology from many colleges. Other advantages include access / availability of additional technology.
  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] Internal: Education Usage: from capstone to teacher ed. External: Outreach Usage: includes access and partnerships with public & charter schools and the community. School partnerships also means you will have public school students on campus in the same classes as education majors. Providing more observation time for Ed majors. The TLC become the focal point for technology on campus.

  • The No “Teacher” Left Behind Act: Technology Learning Centers 12/30/10 Robert R. Lurker Central Missouri State University [email_address] The Creative Learning Environment Eight Strands 1. Computer Graphics Computer-aided painting, or bitmap graphics, deals with computerized images at the pixel level. Activities include graphic arts work, scanned images, page layout, digital photography, animation, image capture, movie animation & special effects. Computer-Aided Drawing (CAD) “thinks” in terms of objects (as opposed to pixels). Connections to curriculum could be as simple as measurement, area, architectural drawing, landscape design, illustration, engineering drafting, mechanical drafting & mechanical design. 2. Science & Data Acquisition Learners use software to collect & analyze data, then use their analyses to make predictions & create scale models. Learners collect data from their work with a wind tunnel, an interactive strength challenger stress testing device & probeware. 3. Control Technology This is one of the more advanced islands in the lab. Learners simulate complex mechanical processes with fischertechnik & LASY components & control them with a computer interface & custom written programs. These learning engagements expose the learners to logical programming & systems thinking. 4. Circuitry (Electric & Pneumatic) Learners compare circuitry as it is used in pneumatics & electricity. The skills & knowledge they obtain here can be used in animatronics, control technology & electronics. 5. Publishing This island encompasses everything learners need to know about word processing & desktop publishing, including scanners, digital photography, QuickTime video, video manipulation, timelining & integrating graphics. 6. Computer Simulation Learners use software to play out long-term scenarios to study cause-and-effect in simulated cities, flight & other scientific models. 7. Physical Simulation The technology in this island introduces learners to simple machines & the principles of mechanics, gear rations, structure & parts of machines. Math, science & physics are emphasized. 8. Multimedia Learners create interactive presentations with advanced software, & begin to combine the elements they have learned in previous lab experiences.
