Teaching strategies using technology

  1. 1. Teaching Strategies Using Technology
  2. 2. Teaching Strategies Using Technology Curriculum Development ◦ Curriculum originally came from a Latin word, which meant a racetrack that horses ran around.
  3. 3. Teaching Strategies Using Technology Technology and Learning ◦ Technology is helping educators expand beyond linear, text-based learning to engage students who learn best in other ways. ◦ Technology is allowing teachers-students to collaborate, inquire, and share. ◦ The use of technology is not about the device or the capability, it’s about the experience.
  4. 4. Teaching Strategies Using Technology What are We Talking About? ◦ Just in Time Teaching (JiTT)
  5. 5. Teaching Strategies Using Technology Just-in-Time-Teaching (JiTT) ◦ History  Invented by Gregor Novak (Professor USAF & IUPUI)  Physics professor – Air Force Academy  Developed for the working adult to maintain interest in learning a subject
  6. 6. Teaching Strategies Using Technology Just-in-Time-Teaching (JiTT) ◦ What is it?  Just-in-Time Teaching or JiTT (Novak, Patterson, Gowin, & Christian, 1999) is a pedagogical approach that combines the best features of traditional in-class instruction with the exciting new communication channels opened by the World Wide Web technologies.
  7. 7. Teaching Strategies Using Technology Just-in-Time-Teaching (JiTT) ◦ What is it?  The JiTT framework encourages student learning by promoting these three learning strategies (Middendorf, Novak, 2002).  Out-of-class assignments increase student study time and structure student learning for maximum benefit.  Students work together in teams to solve problems and teach each other.  Faculty gather insights into student thoughts and feelings that they can use to adjust lectures and exercises to better meet student needs.
  8. 8. Teaching Strategies Using Technology Just-in-Time-Teaching (JiTT) ◦ How?  JiTTs goal is to improve learning by using web exercises, called warm-ups. Warm-Ups are a series of questions about a subject to prepare students for the upcoming exercise  JiTT’s framework fosters Student-to-Student interaction  Interaction between students and the teacher are crucial to learning
  9. 9. Teaching Strategies Using Technology Just-in-Time-Teaching (JiTT) ◦ Benefits  Because of the increasing use of mobile devices, learning content is being packaged and stored in new, more efficient ways, allowing it to be distributively accessed when needed, at greater speeds and in a wide variety of formats  JiTT tiny lessons provides the means for students to self- check knowledge and understanding via brief interactive lessons regardless of location
  10. 10. Teaching Strategies Using Technology Just-in-Time-Teaching (JiTT) ◦ Conclusion  JiTT makes teaching less a matter of data transmission and more of a collaborative exercise in collection, orchestration, remixing, and integration of data into knowledge building  The goal for the student now shifts from a need to collect information to a need to understand, and draw connections from it—to acquire it, disseminate it, and collaborate in its use
