Title: Increasing Instructional Efficiency: Maximizing Content Delivery and Student Empowerment Through Tec


1
Increasing Instructional Efficiency Maximizing
Content Delivery and Student Empowerment Through
Technology
  • UMSL November 13-14, 2008
  • Joe Naumann Adjunct Assoc. Prof. Geography
  • Jennifer Simms Technical Trainer-Principal
    FRC

2
Educational Technology 1813
in the winter of 1813 '14 I attended a
mathematical school kept in BostonOn entering
the room, we were struck at the appearance of
an ample Black Board suspended on the wall, with
lumps of chalk on a ledge below, and cloths
hanging at either side. I had never heard of such
a thing before. Samuel J. May, 1855

Joe Naumann 2001
  • He knew how to use the overhead projector
  • He could make overhead transparencies
  • He was totally Ignorant of
  • MyGateway (Blackboard)
  • PowerPoint
  • Creating web pages
  • Video Clip editing/creating streaming
  • Digital photography photo editing
  • Using UMSL servers

4
What about ignorance?
  • Ignorance is a condition that can be corrected .
    . . . .
  • How did I replace my ignorance with knowledge and
    skills?
  • Patience helpfulness of Prof. Rocky Keel
  • Patience, helpfulness, and encouragement of the
    staff of the Faculty Resource Center
  • The outstanding classroom support of Chris
    Scheetz and his staff
  • Mini courses presented by IT FRC
  • Attendance at Technology Conferences

5
Cheers for the FRC!
  • Jennifer Simms, Paul Wilmarth, and Tom Roedel
    have helped me through rough spots, taught me new
    skills, and have given me tremendous support and
    encouragement!

Today we have many options.

Our Challenge!
  • Create educational content for multiple delivery
    modes
  • Technologically enhanced face-to-face
    lecture-discussion
  • Blended face-to-face and online
  • Totally online
  • Materials and assistance all online
  • Live online classroom plus materials and
    assistance online
  • Wimba Classroom, Wikis, Podcasts, Blogs, etc.

12
A Frequent Problem
  • Staff do not consistently take advantage of
    educational technology
  • Unaware of what is available?
  • Attend conferences talk with colleagues
  • Feeling of being overwhelmed by the unfamiliar?
  • Talk to IT people (at UMSL, the Faculty Resource
    Center)
  • Unsure of how to start?
  • Add technology one step at a time

13
Why use more technology?
  • Students become more responsible for their own
    education.
  • You wont have to lug syllabi, handouts etc. to
    class and carry the leftovers back to the office.
  • You can make basic and supplementary materials
    easily available to those who choose to use them.
  • Students can help each other with Blackboard.
  • Discussion Board
  • Chat Room
  • Students can interact with peers and instructor
    on Wimba PRONTO.

14
Important decisions!
Web information resources
Web lessons tutorials
Email Listservs
Online distance education courses
Computer enhanced lectures
Technology
Bulletin-boards online discussions
Audio video conferencing
Document application sharing
Multimedia CD-ROMS
Streaming media webinars
15
Selecting appropriate technology.
Id like to try using some new technologies and
methods in my teaching. Whats the best way to
begin?
  • What can technology help me accomplish?
  • Address an existing deficiency, gap, or problem.
  • Transfer or redistribute instructional functions
    or activities to another medium (blended
    instruction).
  • Empower students to be more responsible for their
    education.
  • Improve the effectiveness, efficiency (quality)
    of an instructional function, activity or
    process.
  • Experiment and discover better ways for teaching
    learning.

16
Design Focus
Integrating technology into your teaching
Designing Or Redesigning instruction using
appropriate technology
Selecting appropriate learning technologies
17
Instructional Design Principles
  • Learning is facilitated when learners are engaged
    in solving real-world problems.
  • Learning is facilitated when existing knowledge
    is activated as a foundation for new knowledge.
  • Learning is facilitated when new knowledge is
    demonstrated to the learner.
  • Learning is facilitated when new knowledge is
    applied by the learner
  • Learning is facilitated when new knowledge is
    integrated into the learner's world.

18
Take One Step At A Time!
  • Use Blackboard
  • Features I have used (not all of them)
  • Calendar
  • Course Staff Information
  • Course Documents
  • Grade Book (Greatly improved for 08-09)
  • Assignment Manager
  • Chat Room now I keep Wimba PRONTO running
  • Announcements
  • E-mail
  • Online quizzes

19
Take Small Simple Steps
  • If you already use PowerPoint, take the next
    step!
  • Use SMART Sympodium to enhance PowerPoint!

Link PPT to the Internet
  • http//www.umsl.edu/naumannj
  • http//mygateway.umsl.edu
  • http//volcano.und.nodak.edu/

23
Establish a Web Page
  • Store your materials on the Web Page server
  • Use it as a warehouse for materials
  • Link the web page to MyGateway
  • Easier to edit web page than it is to keep
    reprogramming MyGateway
  • Demonstrate NVU

24
Why link to a web page?
  • Storing documents on the web page server greatly
    reduces set-up time from semester to semester.
  • The more that is stored on the class management
    server (BlackBoard, etc.), the slower it runs.
  • Making changes is much simpler
  • NVU web page editor

25
Stream Videos
  • Convert your videos to WMV files.
  • Use the free Microsoft program to format WMV
    files for streaming.
  • OR ask if your technology resource staff can do
    the formatting for you. (FRC at UMSL)
  • Store the files on the streaming server and link
    them to BlackBoard if you have such a server If
    not, start requesting one.

26
Demonstrations
  • MyGateway (BlackBoard)
  • Website
  • NVU (free web page editor)

27
Useful URLs (UMSL Beyond)
  • Faculty Resource Center
  • http//www.umsl.edu/technology/frc/
  • Instructional Technology Services Home Page
  • http//www.umsl.edu/technology/
  • Downloadable Software
  • https//tomsawyer.umsl.edu/webapps/weboffice/softw
    are_distribution/login.cfm
  • Training opportunities
  • https//tomsawyer.umsl.edu/webapps/mygateway/train
    ing/login.cfm
  • If you arent from UMSL, check to see what is
    available at your institution.

28
  • Online Testing Center
  • http//www.umsl.edu/technology/mgwhelp/fachelp/otc
    .html
  • Great when you have several sections of the same
    course and 100 plus students.
