Technology and Ryan
A personal timeline of educational technology
My name is Ryan Matsumoto
I started school in the 1990‟s in Mililani
I graduated from high school in 2003 from
Mililani High School
I first went to college at University of Hawaii at
Manoa in 2003
When I finish the Post-bachelorette Certificate
in Secondary Education (PBCSE), I hope to
become a science high school teacher.
My definition: educational technology
The teaching and incorporation of various technologies
(e.g. computers, calculators, scientific equipment) into
The use of technology in education is to introduce
students to various types of technologies used,
support/enhance learning and demonstrate the
importance of technology.

A vivid technology learning experience
• Technology updates fast pace
• Learning technology is not only for
education, it can be used for gaming
(StarCraft 2 comes out soon)
• Learning the joys of CS4
• A lot of technology used in lab job
• Got to still keep up with technology…
Technology I want to use in my science classroom
(e.g. fluorescent microscopes, photospectrometers)
Internet sites such
My vision of the classroom of the future
Integration of disciplines
Projects that extend to other local schools
(maybe even inter-island)
The use of live cams and streaming chats
(e.g. Skype) to help facilitate live
A challenge for teaching
Technology advancements are so fast pace. I think
