Shannon Tyau Timeline

  1. 1. A personal timeline of educational technology Technology and Me
  2. 2. <ul><li>My name is Shannon Tyau. </li></ul><ul><li>I began my educational journey in Honolulu during the 1990s and graduated in 2006 in Honolulu. </li></ul><ul><li>In the summer of 2006, I attended college at the State University of New York in Purchase, NY. </li></ul><ul><li>In 2007, I began studying at University of Hawaii in </li></ul><ul><li>Manoa, and continue to do so. </li></ul><ul><li>When I finish my degree, I hope to become an elementary or middle school teacher. </li></ul>
  3. 3. My definition of educational technology The definition of educational technology evolves as the purpose of education and needs of society change. Today, I see educational technology through the use of various digital tools that are used by teachers, students, and society. Educational technology provides alternate and flexible forms of communication that allows us to share and find resources, as well as collaborate and support each other locally and globally.

  5. 5. <ul><li>Even though the personal computer had already been invented, my classroom learning tools included a chalkboard, television, papers, pencils, crayons, paints, erasers, and books. </li></ul> The hearing aid I wore.
  6. 6. <ul><li> Prior to starting high school, we were told that it was required to take a typewriting class. The following year, they got rid of that requirement. </li></ul><ul><li>In high school, I had access to Mac computers in the libraries and computer labs. At home, I used a PC to complete my homework. Some applications used for assignments and projects were Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. </li></ul><ul><li>Classrooms now had whiteboards and projectors. There was also a photo lab to develop our own photos (both traditional blackrooms and digital printing) and a media lab to create and edit student-made videos. </li></ul><ul><li>Equipment such as mechanical pencils, cassettes, cameras, DVDs, and flash drives also assisted my learning. </li></ul>The hearing aid I wore.
  7. 7. <ul><li>I bought my first MacBook Pro laptop upon my arrival into college. I was introduced to social networking, such as Facebook and Ning. </li></ul><ul><li>Slowly, more and more teachers are requiring that I turn in assignments via Laulima (yes, we are going green). However, when I need to print, I can now do it wirelessly! Aside from this, I can also easily contact teachers and fellow classmates, and directly access my emails on my cell phone (which can also be used as a music player and web browser! </li></ul><ul><li>I have become so frustrated with losing </li></ul><ul><li>assignments and other important </li></ul><ul><li>documents to a faulty computer, </li></ul><ul><li>but thanks to the ever-changing </li></ul><ul><li>technology, I now have Time Machine </li></ul><ul><li>to automatically back up files for me. </li></ul>The hearing aid I wear today…smaller! And, I wear two instead of one.
  8. 8. <ul><li>Having all of my files automatically saved on Time Machine backup </li></ul><ul><li>3D experience of James Cameron’s Avatar </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>GOOGLE APPS! </li></ul><ul><li>With this tool, I can provide students with access to: </li></ul><ul><li>*A classroom calendar </li></ul><ul><li>*Documents of their own and their classmates’ work </li></ul><ul><li>*A safe and collaborative place to communicate with peers and gather resources </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>I want students to experience virtual field trips where they can visit other countries, walk around, and interact with people who live there. Yes, in the future, students will know many different languages and if they do encounter an unfamiliar dialect, they are quick to adapt. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Though we are increasingly becoming more dependent of the Internet for answers, it is not always a reliable source. </li></ul><ul><li>Social networking sites such as Myspace and Facebook, as well as other internet sites, can also create unwanted privacy and security issues for students and teachers. </li></ul><ul><li>As technology advances, younger generations spend more time glued to a screen. </li></ul><ul><li>(Children between 8-18 years old spend more than 7.5 hours a day with a computer, cell/smart phone, television, or other electronic devices. Five years ago, children spent less than 6.5 hours on such devices) </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>“ Much education today is monumentally ineffective. All to often we are giving young people cut flowers when we should be teaching them to grow their own plants.” </li></ul><ul><li>-John W. Gardner </li></ul>“ The need to know the capital of Florida died when my phone learned the answer. Rather, the students of tomorrow need to be able to think creatively: they will need to learn on their own, adapt to new challenges and innovate on-the-fly.” -Anthony Chivetta, high school student in Missouri
