Fostering technology integration
  • Universal student access
  • Reliable networks
  • Multiple opportunities for training and support
  • Environment which values experimentation and
    tolerates failures

Why bother?
  • Access to vast repositories of INFORMATION and
    RESOURCES
  • REFLECTION upon (and in some cases transformation
    of) the way we teach
  • VISUALIZATION and CONCEPTUALIZATION
  • Opportunities to create ENGAGED learners
  • Ability to ACCOMODATE varied learning styles

9
How can faculty know whats possible?
  • Magazines and Journals
  • T.H.E. http//www.thejournal.com/
  • Syllabus http//www.syllabus.com
  • Converge http//www.convergemag.com
  • Conferences and Websites
  • http//www.askeric.org
  • EDUCAUSE http//www.educause.edu/
  • Syllabus http//www.syllabus.com
  • The Collaboration http//www.colab.org
  • Instructor resource guides with websites
  • http//www.learner.org/jnorth/
  • Augies own Instructional Technologist!

Technology can support learning by facilitating
  • EXPLORATION and ANALYSIS of information
  • SIMULATION of events or processes
  • VISUALIZATION of abstract concepts
  • MANIPULATION of variables
  • CONSTRUCTION of knowledge
  • PRACTICE and drilling of skills

11
Some ideas
  • Instead of writing comments in the margins of
    students papers, you can have students can send
    papers via e-mail. Then, using a microphone
    attached to a PC, you can make audio comments on
    the papers. If you return the papers via e-mail,
    students can listen to your comments with
    headphones or speakers.
  • Or, to save disk space, you can use the annotate
    feature in Word
  • You may already know how to create links to Web
    sites in PowerPoint, but you can also easily
    create links to the files from within a
    PowerPoint presentation Paper www.google.com

12
Some more ideas
  • Use the custom animation feature to animate
    charts, graphs, and images within Powerpoint to
    make your message come alive

More ideas
  • Create Web pages that impose visual structure and
    an experts conceptual framework upon complex
    information
  • Use modeling software to help students visualize
    molecular structures
  • Provide access to accompaniment software that
    responds and adjusts to the students tempo (and
    is available anytime!)
  • Create online forums for students to review their
    classmates papers, creating a writers
    community
  • Use Word to capture classroom discussions for
    posting and review
  • Use Babelfish or Google to translate phrases from
    one language to another (and back again, for some
    interesting comparisons!)
  • Use simulation software, such as SimCity (urban
    planning) or SimLife (biology) to enable students
    to manipulate complex variables in a simulated
    environment

21
More ideas
  • Use biomechanics software and digital video
    capture to help students in physical education
    and sports
  • Use digital microscope cameras to allow an entire
    class to view the same microscopic image
  • Use thermal imaging software to plot thermal
    fluctuations
  • Use electronic smart boards instead of
    projection screens to run software demonstrations
    and capture whiteboard images

Two basic types of technology integration...
  • Type I
  • Make it easier, quicker, or otherwise more
    efficient to continue teaching the same things in
    the same ways we have always taught them.
  • Type II
  • Make available new and better ways of teaching.

(Were aiming for Type II!)
24
Finally
  • While information does not equal knowledgeand
    technology is not a cure-all, thoughtful,
    meaningful, and authentic integration of
    technology and information resources can enhance
    learning and lead to development of knowledge.
