Technology in the k 12 classroom

  1. 1. Technology in the K-12 Classroom By Thanhtruc Hoang
  2. 2. It is important that teachers use technology as a device to help students learn in a fun and interactive environment.
  3. 3. Performance  “Studies have shown that students using technology as an education tool become more engaged in the process and more interested in growing their knowledge base -- in some cases, to the point that they don't even realizing they're actively learning.” ---Scott Steinberg
  4. 4. Grading the Digital School  “The digital push here aims to go far beyond gadgets to transform the very nature of the classroom, turning the teacher into a guide instead of a lecturer, wandering among students who learn at their own pace on Internet- connected devices.” --- Matt Richtel
  5. 5. Building self esteem “A related technology effect stressed by many teachers was enhancement of student self esteem. Both the increased competence they feel after mastering technology-based tasks and their awareness of the value placed upon technology within our culture, led to increases in students' (and often teachers') sense of self worth.”
  6. 6. Getting the Information… “Educators of years past have always yearned for a way to make information easily accessible to students. With the advent of computers and the internet, access to information became easier.”
  7. 7. Keeping track of students learning… •“One way of making sure students focus on the lessons instead of the distractions provided by new technologies is by providing a way for educators to track the students' activities using the technology chosen by the school.”
  8. 8. “The benefits of technology in education reach across all grade levels, from K-12 all the way up to colleges and universities. “
