  6. 6. High school technology Anyone remember laserdiscs? My teachers thought these would change the world!!! I learned word processing and how to type on Word 97. Wasting away in math class playing games and programming formulas…
  7. 7. College technology Everything I did in college was based on OfficeXP…from word processing, to using Excel to complete my payroll job, to designing PowerPoint's for presentations. America Online helped me stay in touch with family and friends while away from home. Internet Explorer opened the internet to me. Many hours were spent conducting research with this engine. Every building had an up-to-date computer lab.

  9. 9. A technology I want to use in my classroom <ul><li>I want to apply more assistive technology to augment my students’ limited communication abilities and options. </li></ul>Speech from symbols Synthesized speech Eye gaze system

  11. 11. A challenge for teaching <ul><li>The biggest hurdle I foresee will be standards-based assessment. Teachers will have to come up with new ways to show that using new technologies meet the same requirements . </li></ul>
  12. 12. Words of wisdom <ul><li>“Don’t take life too seriously. You’ll never get out alive.” </li></ul><ul><li>-Bugs Bunny </li></ul>
