Technology in the Classroom

  1. 1.  At that time the advent of using new technology in an everyday classroom seemed to be a “not so distant” ideal.Retrieved from:http://www.computerhistory.org/revolution/personal-computers/17/298/1161
  2. 2.  When integrated into the curriculum of any discipline the learner is provided the skills necessary to survive in a world that is growing more and more technologically complex.Retrieved from:http://article.wn.com/view/2012/07/25/IBM_To_Boost_Technical_Skills_In_Mauritius/
  3. 3.  The integration of technology into the class room is essential to the complete education of today’s learner.Retrieved from:http://manenews.com/
  4. 4.  The learner develops a stronger research and exploratory skill set that will greatly enhance their ability to be a “life-time” learner.Retrieved from:http://www.braintrack.com/college-and-work-news/articles/college-students-deficient-in-basic-research-skills-10111001
  5. 5.  Using technology related projects in educational curriculum challenges the learner to use new methods of discovery, and better represents a realistic “real-world” experience in the classroomRetrieved from:http://yilb.com/old-dominion-university-brings-the-real-world-to-the-classroom/
  6. 6.  The United States Department of Education also found that the addition of technological tools and their authentic implementation into curriculum places the learner in an “active” role rather than a “passive” role as a recipient of informationRetrieved from:http://www.walsingham.org/page.aspx?pid=751
  7. 7.  Technology use allows many more students to be actively thinking about information, making choices, and executing skills than is typical in teacher-led lessonsRetrieved from:http://www.nfcit.com/
  8. 8.  Assessments should then be configured around the ability of the learner to “find” correct answers, rather than “memorize” correct answers.Retrieved from:http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-memorize-any-sheet-music/
  9. 9.  This study also discovered that a bi- product of introducing technology to the educational process was increased motivation and self- esteem of the learner.Retrieved from:  http://www.thesite.org/healthandwellbeing/wellb eing/bodyimageandselfesteem/lowesteem
  10. 10.  The relationship between teacher and learner is also enhanced as the learning experience becomes more relational, the educator becomes more of a “guide” or “mentor” in the educational process, realizing that both the student and the teacher are learning together.Retrieved from:http://www.top-colleges.com/blog/2010/09/14/pros-and-cons-of-becoming-a-computer-teacher/
