with Improving Educational Experience
This article talks about the need for teachers
to integrate audiovisuals and other digital
content to their everyday lesson plan.
The use of certain online education tools
allows teachers and students access to more
teaching resources than a book could.
This will keep teachers keep up with the
technology age of their students.
The school system trains the teachers
through out the summer to educate them
on the new material and touches base
with them throughout the year to make
sure they have the proper understanding
of what they are teaching in student, and
that the students are able to use the
digital material to the fullest.
"can provide the resources to both engage our students in learning
and develop our human capital, so that we can evolve our
curriculum and methods of instruction to meet the changing needs
of 21st century learners."
The quote above say exactly how I feel about the
idea of integrating audiovisuals and other digital
media into the classroom. Teachers must be able to
keep up with the tech age in order to better be able
to reach and teach their students. The world
changes everyday and we have to learn to adapt
with it and it could better improve our school
systems some just as it did for DPS.
This article talks about changes that the government is trying to
make about a federal policy statement that puts technology at the
heart of proposed changes to the way education is delivered in this
This new plan will change the way public school are ran and how
students are being taught.
Major changes such as longer school years/days and how the
internet will be used not only as assistive teaching tools, but the
main sources of learning for some.
The new plan is devised of five categories
of action that will reach each source of
education on each level that is needed
with detailed procedures that will be in
place and used.
The main levels consist of assessment,
infrastructure, learning, productivity, and
"Professional educators will be supported individually and in teams by
technology that connects them to data, content, resources,
expertise, and learning experiences that can empower and inspire
them to provide more effective teaching for all learners.“
I believe that teachers should be flexible in what and
how they teach. They should try to learn what it is that
students need or what they can use in order to better
educate them. The quote shows how the government is
trying to better the teachers for the diversity of learning
need for each student. This will benefit many students
and mare teachers more productive and not such “by
the book” teachers.
The NMAA web-based communication
management system eChalk improved
student and teacher involvement and also
helped parents be more active on the child's
Technology is a critical tool for schools that
better education student in various ways
The program allows the student to connect
with the teachers throughout the day, even
outside of school hours.
Gives students a well- rounded
experience, similar to what they would
experience in college.
Teachers are better able to reach each
students problem area due to the
computers and online access.
“We've been really lucky to access online learning programs. Students
have been able to get online and really drill themselves in the areas
where they really needed improvement,“
It is key that students be able to see what exactly their main
problem areas may be in a certain subject area, so that they can
better succeed. The quote talks about the ability for students to do
that because of the online program. By the students being able to
do that I believe that they can better help teach themselves,
because they will know exactly what key problems they need to
access without restudying things that they have a full understanding
Technology has been and
becoming more of a key learning tool for
students. Books are becoming things of
the past, especially with all the new
gadgets and web site that allow students
to do research and homework on the go.
Teachers and schools need to be able to
change with technology advances as
well to better educate students of all
ages. Teachers have to be able to be
educated as well on the changes in
today's technology. From the three
articles I read the government is starting
to see more of a need for technology to
be integrated into how students learn
outside of textbooks. The articles also
show the advantages if such integration
and new programs that all have great
benefits and success rates for students,
teachers, and parents. Technology is
definitely become more of a need than a
want in many of today's classrooms.
