Title: PowerPoint Presentation - Technology in Education

Adina Alexandru, Ed. D. Southington Public
Schools AATF, Chicago, July 2012
Did you know? 88 of educators considered
technology essential to teaching and learning AND
95 believe that technology improves student
learning. Yet only 32 of educators use
technology to instruct students. Teachers use
computers several times a week for lesson
preparation, but only once or twice a year for
instruction! Why? Technologies may not align
with the current curriculum. The teachers own
lack of computer expertise and time constraints
The wrong approach (focus on technology first not
learner goals)
Individual Brainstorming Activity
  • What types of technology do you use in your
    classes? Is it paid/free?
  • When you use technology, why do you use it? (give
  • When you do not use technology why do you make
    that choice? (give example)
  • What are some of the biggest challenges you face
    when using technology?

Integrating Technology May
  • Change the way you teach
  • Change the way you interact with your students
  • Change the expectations you have for your
  • Give you more options to present the materials
  • Free you to really do what you do best TEACH!

Planning the When
  • Use a defined task to determine how long each
    student or group can be at the computer
  • Be fair
  • Be realistic
  • Be consistent
  • Have the computer in use all the time

Planning the How
  • Develop a system for using the computers (lang.
    lab, etc.)
  • Think small (one project at a time)
  • Create a homepage with agendas and links
  • Assign learning groups (you will achieve better
    results when students can bounce ideas)

Planning the How contd
  • Enforce expectations (write them out and share
    them with the students)
  • Use students as computer helpers
  • Use scaffolds
  • Checklists
  • Templates

digital storytelling is used to teach ESL, the
same ideas can be applied to teach any vocabulary
in a foreign language.

What is Twitter? Twitter is a real-time
information network that connects you to the
latest information about what you
find interesting. Simply find the public streams
you find most compelling and follow the
conversations. Twitter has simply become one of
the best places for teachers to collaborate,
share solutions to common classroom problems, and
discuss education policy. In fact, it might just
be the best forum teachers have ever had. Liz
Applications in the classroom
1. Tweet about upcoming due dates or
assignments. Set up a feed dedicated exclusively
to due dates, tests or quizzes. 2. Coordinate
assignments. Use Twitter to collaborate on
different projects and keep a quick reference on
any changes. 3. Set up a foreign language news
stream. Keep foreign language students informed
of current events from relevant nations while
challenging them to use their translation skills
by keeping a specific news feed. 4. Connect
classrooms. Teachers and students from around the
world can collaborate on projects using Twitter
as a communication tool that educates students in
different classroom and cultural protocols. 5.
Post sample questions. Use Twitter to post up
sample questions for upcoming exams for students
to research and consider 6. Post supplementary
materials. Re-tweet articles, news stories,
opinions and other interesting tidbits relevant
to a specific class as an excellent, convenient
supplement to classroom lectures. 7. Facilitate
discussions. Require students to post their own
succinct responses to the main theses and open up
discussions with one another.

Speech to Text in Google Chrome
  • Speech to text technology can be also very
    pricey. Adding a speech recognition option to
    your computer doesn't have to be expensive if you
    use Google's Chrome web browser one of the apps
    you can add is the Speech Recognizer.

    you launch it and click the microphone. You can
    now start recording your voice. The Speech
    Recognizer will type out your text when you

  • Moodle is a management system that enables
    educators to create dynamic online sites,
    supplement F2F instruction, create wikis,
    databases and forums to foster collaborative
    learning communities.
  • Here are some example for using Moodle
  • http//courses.moodleshare.com/
  • Moodle is also available as a Microsoft Office
    Add-in. You can use it to open and save office
    documents housed in Moodle to create parents
    accounts, students accounts, annotate
    assignments, create quizzes, submit quizzes and
    grade quizzes

Moodle Meets
  • Moodle Meets are free, 5 day online professional
    development courses led by experienced educators.
    Moodle Meet topics focus on the resources and
    skills needed to use technology in the classroom
    as well as on the skills needed to teach and
    learn in a virtual environment. They are
    Professional learning Potlucks. A concentrated
    week of discussion, collaboration and resource

  • Social learning network similar to Facebook
    designed specifically for foreign language
    students and teachers teachers post assignments
    and reminders of upcoming quizzes and tests,
    students can also post their own topics. This
    site gives the possibility for communicative
    language practice (as opposed to practicing
    vocabulary or verb conjugations in isolation).
    This is a way for students to do the majority of
    preparation at home and practice actively with us
    in class!. This allows students to hand in
    homework via the Edmodo interface and eliminate
    paper altogether!
  • In preparation for this application at the
    beginning of the year survey students regarding
    their access to technology at home. If you have
    student with no access at home you can always
    encourage them to use the school computers in the
    library during study halls or after school. This
    way all students can post and comment every day.
