  3. 3. “ Research Shows Schools Making Small Progress Toward Technology-Rich Environments” By: David Nagel Written: July 2, 2oo9 <ul><li>Article Summary </li></ul><ul><li>American schools and universities aren’t making any major progress towards providing technology-rich environments for students. </li></ul><ul><li>Schools are weak in using technology for assessments </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Yay to IUPUI for conducting the professor evaluations online! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The 2009 National Educational Computer Conference (NECCC) in Washington DC showed that colleges had made most of the technology advances, mainly in high-speed broadband access. </li></ul></ul>APA CITATION: Nagel, David. (2 Aug 2009). Research Shows Schools Making Small Progress Toward Technology-Rich Environments. T.H.E. JOURNAL . August 10, 2009, from http://thejournal.com/articles/2009/07/02/research-shows-schools-making-small-progress-toward-technology-rich-environments.aspx
  4. 4. <ul><li>Article Statistics </li></ul><ul><li>70 percent of the annual Vision K-20 survey used technology to support the enterprise and “facilitate communication and collaboration” </li></ul><ul><li>46 percent of the survey used technology-based assessments </li></ul><ul><li>59 percent of the survey used technology to “meet the needs of all students” </li></ul><ul><li>60 percent of the survey used technology to nurture creativity and self-expression </li></ul>“ Research Shows Schools Making Small Progress Toward Technology-Rich Environments” By: David Nagel Written: July 2, 2oo9
  5. 5. Article Reflection <ul><li>I like how colleges have figured out how to incorporate technology in the classroom and just on campus in general. I wish that K-12 schools would get on the same level that colleges and universities are at. </li></ul><ul><li>Even though the statistics aren’t where educators would like to see them, technology is still being incorporated and is also inspiring creativity in students </li></ul>
  6. 6. “ Blackboard Acquires MobilEdu Developer” By: David Negal Written: July 14, 2009 <ul><li>Article Summary </li></ul><ul><li>MobilEdu is a standalone tool that lets users: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Connect with professors </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Receive news updates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Browse course catalogs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>E-mail other users </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Receive schedule updates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>View a map of their campus (with GPS support) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Engage in other forms of communication </li></ul></ul>APA CITATION: Nagel, David. (14 July 2009). Blackboard Acquires MobilEdu Developer. T.H.E. JOURNAL. August 10, 2009, from http://thejournal.com/articles/2009/07/14/blackboard-acquires-mobiledu-developer.aspx
  7. 7. “ Blackboard Acquires MobilEdu Developer” By: David Negal Written: July 14, 2009 <ul><li>The article states how MobilEdu would allow educational institutions to deliver information to students’ devices, which would be unique to every campus </li></ul><ul><li>The System would also be a great way to connect students, professors, alumni, parents and counselors </li></ul><ul><li>“ We started MobilEdu because we wanted to empower students and faculty by allowing them to engage with their university in a powerful and mobile way.” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Kayvon Beykpour </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Article Reflection <ul><li>I really like the idea of a universal device that students use to keep in contact with professors, other students, etc. But, this means just another thing for students and professors to carry. As well, some older professors may have a hard time learning to use the device. As well, many students carry laptop computers with them and can easily check their e-mail and class pages. </li></ul><ul><li>The article mentions how MobilEdu could better connect parents. While I think going away to college has a huge effect on students living without their parents, I do believe parental involvement would eventually benefit the students. </li></ul>
  9. 9. “ From ‘Paperless Classroom’ to ‘Deep Reading’: Five Stages in Internet Pedagogy” By: Grover C. Furr III <ul><li>Article Summary </li></ul><ul><li>Furr describes the five stages it took for him to really utilize technology in his literature classes </li></ul><ul><li>Furr’s Five Stages </li></ul><ul><li>Class Management (Stage 1) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>His first stage is what he calls a “paperless classroom”. The first step is for all assignments, attendance records, examinations, and grading to be submitted online by e-mail. By using e-mail, assignments are easily filed, recalled, and graded in one convenient place </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interactivity (Stage 2) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Students interact with the professor outside the classroom through e-mail, mailing lists, threaded discussion forums and real-time chat sessions. </li></ul></ul></ul>Furr, Grover C. III. (Sep/Oct 2003). From “Paperless Classroom” to “Deep Reading”: Five Stages in Internet Pedagogy. The Technology Source . August 10, 2009, from http://technologysource.org/article/from_paperless_classroom_to_deep_reading/
  10. 10. “ From ‘Paperless Classroom’ to ‘Deep Reading’: Five Stages in Internet Pedagogy” By: Grover C. Furr III
  11. 11. Article Reflection <ul><li>Before reading this article, I never really thought about turning assignments in online unless the class was online. I think this technique would save time for the students and the teachers and would also help with organization </li></ul><ul><li>I don’t like the idea of having lectures online. I think that only allows students’ to believe that it is OK to miss classes just because they can watch the lectures online. Now, if the course was an online course, it would be perfect! </li></ul><ul><li>As well, I don’t particularly like the idea of online texts. Though it’s benefits for the economy and planet are good, I simply cannot read a text from a computer screen unless it is incredibly short. </li></ul>
  12. 13. <ul><li>Thank you for a good online class. This was my first, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I didn’t think I was going to learn anything I didn’t know already, and I was greatly mistaken after our first assignment! I’m glad I was able to gain knowledge from this course. It is my believe that you know a lot about this subject material, and you teach it well! Thank you, again! </li></ul><ul><li>Laura Kulesavage </li></ul>
