Future Technology In The Classroom

  1. 1. EDUC W200 Spring 2010 Jake Wyman

  3. 3.  Frye suggests that teachers need to find a more modern method to let students express themselves other than the ancient method of pencil and paper  Podcasts increases the students motivation to communicate by changing their “perceptions of audience”  Podcasting is also more effective because students will be doing something they enjoy Contents Next
  4. 4.  Benefits of Podcasting  Podcasting is cheap  Podcasting invites a global audience  Audio podcasting encourages no- frills communication  Podcasting is digital story-telling  Podcasting provides a window into the classroom  Podcasting involves few privacy concerns  Podcasting can educate about copyright  Podcasting can be interactive  Podcasting can be creative  Podcasting can be fun! Contents Next
  5. 5.  Although many students today are technologically advanced, and would gladly jump on board with Podcasting over writing, some may be reluctant to make the transition. How could you handle a situation where a student does not want to share their thoughts on a podcast because it is so published and less personable? Or the school districts where students may not have the advantage of technology at home? Contents Next
  6. 6.  Ebooks are less of a hassle to obtain than the old school method of buying printed text books  With Ebooks, students do not have to worry about the condition the text is in, or if someone highlighted appropriate passages  Ebooks offer a more cost friendly approach to obtaining required text needed for a particular course Contents Next
  7. 7.  When a student buys an Ebook, rather than printed text, they also purchase related material that enhances learning the subject such as hyperlinks and video  Students already spend a significant amount of time on their laptops, and Ebooks provide a more flexible approach to reading material Contents Next
  8. 8.  Some skeptics claim that Ebooks do not enhance the learning experience for students, but rather hurt it as students tire more easily when reading a screen rather than a book. They also claim that looking at a screen for extended amounts of time strain the eyes and lead to a more negative outcome than printed text. What argument and facts could you present to silence these critics? Contents Next
  9. 9.  iPad has more storage room for .pdf files that could not otherwise be used on a desktop  Would make it more convenient for Ebooks and accessibility to online teaching  Students could highlight text and take notes on readings without worrying about damaging the resale value of the text  Students are so comfortable with technology that teaching them how to use the iPad would not have to be a major concern Contents Next
  10. 10.  iPad the next step in completely integrating technology and education  Could provide a more interactive experience with educational links right in front of them rather than on a projector Contents Next
  11. 11.  The Apple iPad has many benefits to incorporating it into the everyday classroom. Cost, however, is an ever rising concern to many school districts. Would having this technology in the classroom enhance learning enough to where purchasing the iPad for classes could be justified by a school board? Or is this a fantasy that is years away from becoming reality? Contents Next
  12. 12.  It’s time that a revolution occurred in the classroom, not necessarily on material being presented, but more on how teachers present it  Students desire to learn has not dissipated, but teachers have lost touch with how to effectively reach students  We don’t live in the 1950’s, so it’s time to stop teaching like we are  Incorporating technology in the everyday classroom would help reconnect student-teacher interaction that have been severed Contents Next
