  2. 2. INTRODUCTION The traditional definition of literacy is the ability to read and write. With the rapid development of new technologies, the nature of literacy is undergoing a rapid metamorphosis. Thus in addition to reading and writing, the current definition of literacy also includes the ability to learn, comprehend, and interact with technTechnology should enhance learning. There is no value in just having access to it but more important how it is used. The ED Tech initiative plans to constantly develop new ways of applying technology into teaching and learning. In order to educate the public about the NCLB act, U.S. Secretary of State Rod Paige embarked on a 25-City No Child Left Behind Tour Across America. Paige believes that "By harnessing technology, we can expand access to learning and close the achievement gap in America." One way is by e-learning which is a powerful option for parents and schools. With a click of a mouse button any student anywhere has the opportunity to learn. It increases flexibility for schools and promotes individual instruction to meet the needs of each student. Paige had a similar message in New York where he believed that "Technology is connecting parents to teachers, and, it is helping connect parents to assessments so we can measure the progress of every student".oThe need for technology in the classrooms for improving literacy is also seen in the national and state standards.
  3. 3. The National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) Project is an ongoing initiative of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and a consortium of distinguished partners and co-sponsors . The main goal is to develop national standards for educational uses of technology to enhance educational and literacy improvements in schools. The NETS Project defines standards for students, integrating curriculum technology, technology support, and standards for student assessment and evaluation of technology use. The organization believes that in order to survive in today's competitive and information-rich culture, students must be able to use technology effectively. Technology in the classroom can help students become capable users, information seekers, problem solvers and decision-makers The use of technology research tools suggests that "Students use technology to locate, evaluate, and collect information from a variety of sources" and "Students use technology tools to process data and report results". Similarly, there is a correlation between NYS-ELA-Std 4, National-ELA-Std 4 and Technology-Std 4. The ELA standards expect students to read, write, listen and speak for social interaction while the Technology standard expects students to use telecommunications to interact and publish. If one looks carefully, one can similarly find associations between technology and the various subjects. For example, the New York State Math, Science and Technology Standard 2 deals with Information Systems which expects students to access, generate, process and transfer information using appropriate technologies. Standards 6 and 7 both involve the use of technology.logy in a meaningful way .
  4. 4. Research is the number one reason to use the internet in education. Students have a wealth of information open to them. Often, when they are researching obscure topics, school libraries do not have the needed books and magazines. The internet helps solve this problem. Here's an example of a great research project: Using this site's new Lecture Outline Series for the History of China, students can research directly off this page and then present the information they find. One concern which I will discuss in Part II of this article is the quality of the information found online. However, with some advance 'footwork' of your own, along with stringent recording requirements for sources, you can help the student determine whether their information is from a reliable source. This is also an important lesson for them to learn for research in college and beyond. The possibilities for assessment of research on the internet are endless, many of them involving other forms of technology. Some ideas include essays, debates, panel discussions, role play, video presentation of information, web page creation (see next subheading for more on this) and PowerPoint(tm) presentations. Educational technology, also termed instructional technology, information and communication technology (ICT) in education, EdTech, and learning technology, is "the study and ethical practice of facilitating learning and improving performance by creating, using and managing appropriate technological processes and resources."[1] A closely related term, e-learning, refers to the use of modern technology, such as computers, digital technology, networked digital devices and associated software and courseware with learning scenarios, worksheets and interactive exercises that facilitate learning. Educational technology is used by learners and educators in homes, schools (both K-12 and higher education), businesses, and other settings. The term educational technology encompasses both material objects, such as machines and networking hardware, as well as
  5. 5. theories such asinstructional theory and learning theory. Educational technology is an integral part of society today.[2]Information and communications technology in education refers both to an array of tools and also to the principles for their effective application in learning. Educational technology relies on a broad defini methodologies and techniques, and skills assessments. Examples of these two dimensions are material aspects such as internet-based learning, and educational psychology aspects such asinstructional theory, learning theory, media psychology and human performance technology, fields of study that apply theories of human behavior to educational technology. Although there is some semantic debate,[3] educational "technology" refers to all valid and reliable applied education science, such as equipment, as well as processes and procedures, that are derived from scientific research. As such, educational technology in a given context may refer to theoretical, algorithmic or heuristic processes, and does not necessarily imply physical technology. This vocabulary is consistent with educational technology as "the study and ethical practice of facilitating learning and improving performance by creating, using and managing appropriate technological processes and resources"[1] and the definition by the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT), which denoted instructional technology as "the theory and practice of design, development, utilization, management, and evaluation of processes and resources for learning."[4] Educational technology thus refers to the use of both physical hardware and educational theoretics. It encompasses several domains, includinglearning theory, computer-based training, online learning, and, where mobile technologies are used, m-learning. Accordingly, there are several discrete aspects to describing the intellectual and technical development of educational technology:  educational technology as the theory and practice of educational approaches to learning  educational technology as technological tools and media that assist in the communication of knowledge, and its development and exchange
  6. 6.  educational technology for learning system management (LMS), such as tools for student and curriculum management, and education management information systems (EMIS)  educational technology itself as an educational subject; such courses may be called CONCLUSION Computer Studie orInformation and Communication Technology (ICT) 1. The learning environment is a complex system where the interplay and interactions of many things impact the outcome of learning. When computers are brought into an educational setting just because they are there, the entire pedagogical setting of the classroom changes. This is known as the Everest Effect which leads to more “technology-driven teaching, where the entire meaning of an activity changes without adequate research validation. This leads to unclear learning objectives and standards that are not met by the end of a lesson. If classroom technology continues to monopolize an activity, the students involved begin to develop the sense that “life would scarcely be thinkable without technology."[75] This concept goes along with Postman's claim that "it is more important for learners to reflect on the implications and consequences of process of information gathering, than it is to simply acquire the skills to genera te,receive, gather and distribute information in easierway.
