Ivy's Education Technology Timeline

  1. 1. Ivy Hs u ’s pe rs o nal time line o f e duc atio nal te c hno lo g y
  2. 2. Overview My name is Ivy Hsu. I started school as a kindergartener in 1990 at St. John Vianney in Kailua. I graduated from Iolani High School in 2002 in Honolulu. I first went to college at New York University in 2002. I finished my degree in Graphic Communications in 2005. Now I hope to become a well-loved high school Creative Writing teacher in Hawai`i after I finish the Post Baccalaureate Certification program at UH next year.

It is any technology that My can stimulate interest in and understanding of de finitio n : any subject area, while making the learning Educ atio nal Te c hno lo g y is … process itself efficient, fun and relevant. Educational technology helps schools and students stay up-to-date in a constantly changing and demanding social world.
  4. 4. Web sites on ed tech history  Bertram C. Bruce: Tech Timeline: Archive of University of Illinois student-created web pages describing historical events and future predictions (up to year 3922) in the history of learning technologies. http://www.isrl.illinois.edu/~chip/projects/timeline/  Encyclopedia on Ed Tech: “A collection of short multimedia articles on a variety of topics related to the fields of instructional design and education and training.” Edited by Bob Hoffman, San Diego State U. http://coe.sdsu.edu/eet /  Computers in the Classroom Timeline: Another, more succinct timeline of the history of computers in the classroom. http://www.csulb.edu/~murdock/histofcs.html  Ed Tech History Articles: A list of scholarly journal articles compiled by Patrick Foster of Univ.

  5. 5. Kinde rg arte n te c hno lo g y My memory of classroom technology in kindergarten is limited to paper, pencils, crayons, paint, etc. I Later in elementary thought that the felt school, we had animals velcro’d to a computer class and board used for storytelling practiced typing on were pretty high-tech. those old Apple 1990 was still an analog computers. At most, teachers used age. overhead projectors and videos in school.
  6. 6. Hig h s c ho o l te c hno lo g y •I was lucky at Iolani school to have internet-accessible computer labs with unlimited use of laser color printers. All assignments were expected to be word-processed. •Classrooms did not have laptops or computers for student use. There was only one teacher who had two computers available to students but they were not included in assignments. •Technology-based assignments included a few power-point presentations and one website. •Teachers stuck to fairly traditional methods such as textbooks, blackboards, whiteboards, and overhead projectors.
  7. 7. Co lle g e te c hno lo g y •Blackboard: NYU’s online learning tool, where professors could communicate with students and post assessments (similar to Laulima). Some assignments were e-mailed directly to the professor or turned in via Blackboard forums, but many were also paper-based. • As a Communications student, I attended several classes in the lab where each student worked from a computer. Students in any field were not required to purchase their own laptops. •It was easy to avoid buying textbooks and access required readings via the library’s e-book database. •Teachers often used digital projectors that connected directly to electronic devices. •No online classes offered.
  8. 8. A vivid te c hno lo g y le arning e xpe rie nc e Includes:  Seamless incorporation of relevant multimedia elements  An experienced and knowledgeable instructor to direct and guide independent students  Maintaining a human, affective environment while using advanced technology  New methods, same goal: everyone walks away having gained from the experience!
  9. 9. Te c hno lo g ie s I want to us e in my c las s ro o m Imaginary (or future??) Realistic  Ti m m e achi ne to •Videos and music are great tools to compliment literature and video chat with writing lessons dead authors: •Reflective, frequently updated blogs for writing practice, reinforcement of understanding, and discussion.
  10. 10. My vision of the classroom of the future (be s ide s time mac hine s )  Through advanced telecommunications, learning doesn’t stop when the bell rings. Education should infiltrate life as technology has done!  Students have adequate access to and knowledge of modern technologies of all kinds, BUT  English classrooms must have real books and paper. These should never be overshadowed by digital materials.  Students will understand ed. tech. history and therefore approach technology with a thoughtful and critical mindset.
  11. 11. Challe ng e s fo r te ac hing  Equal opportunity and access for technology is difficult to achieve with limited resources.  Cooperation from teachers, administrations, students and families.  Continued progress without abandoning what has worked in the past.
  12. 12. “Show us not the aim without the way. For ends and means on earth are so entangled That changing one, you change the other too; Every result depends Each different path entirely on how it is brings other ends in view." reached. Likewise, learning and teaching go — Arthur hand in hand. If a Koestler student shows unsatisfactory results, it’s time to change methods. It’s an age of change!
