Title: Integrating Internet-based Technology into Teaching/Learning

Integrating Internet-based Technology into
Teaching/Learning
  • Presenters

2003 COABE Conference ---- Portland, OR

Integrating Internet-based Technology into
Teaching/Learning
  • What does this terminology mean for you?
  • What should the goals for Integrating
    Internet-based Technology into Teaching/Learning
    include?
  • What are some reasons for Integrating
    Internet-based Technology into Teaching/Learning?

3
Integrating Internet-based Technology into
Teaching/Learning
  • The role of technology is to
  • expand those factors that determine learning
    outcomes and
  • manage the teaching and learning process
  • (Burge and Roberts 1993 Ehrmann 1997,
    1998 Whitesel 1998).

Integrating Internet-based Technology into
Teaching/Learning
Reasons for using technology in education
  • provides opportunities for more learner-centered
    instruction
  • permits instruction to be contextualized
  • allows students to explore, make mistakes, and
    learn from their errors
  • leads to more active and interactive modes of
    instruction and
  • results naturally in greater collaboration,
    cooperation, and small group work

(Gillespie 1998 Kearsley and Shneiderman 1998
Petraglia 1998).

Integrating Internet-based Technology into
Teaching/Learning
  • Billions of dollars have been spent to bring
    computer technology into K-16 classrooms.
  • Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology
    Program (PT3).
  • Since 1999, Congress has devoted over 275
    million. Ninety-five Grants ((48 million) were
    awarded, in June 2000 to address the challenge of
    developing technology proficient future
    educators and to transform teacher preparation
    programs into 21st-century learning environments.
  • AACTE-Microsoft Innovative Teachers Program
  • Nearly 50 million in software licenses and
    online community-building tools have been awarded
    under the program to SCDEs that partner with
    local school districts to provide
    technology-related professional development
    opportunities to faculty members, prospective
    teachers, and practicing teachers.
  • Despite these investments only 20 percent of
    the 2.5 million teachers currently working in our
    public schools feel comfortable using these
    technologies in their classrooms (U.S. Department
    of Education, 1999).

Integrating Internet-based Technology into
Teaching/Learning
  • How many dollars have been spent to bring
    computer
  • technology into adult education classrooms?

7
Integrating Internet-based Technology into
Teaching/Learning
  • Internet-based Technologies
  • Internet-based
  • internet
  • e-mail
  • listservs/discussion boards
  • video-conferencing
  • white-boards
  • Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs)

8
Integrating Internet-based Technology into
Teaching/Learning
  • To achieve the desired outcomes of
    integrating technology into the adult education
    classroom, teachers must encourage to
  • Use technology to shift the emphasis from
    themselves to the adult learner in teaching and
    learning
  • Understand that technology should be integral to
    the teaching and learning process
  • See that technology enables the instructor to
    becomes a facilitator of learning as well as a
    planner, guide, and mentor and
  • Use technology to move the focus away from
    low-level cognitive tasks to higher-order
    thinking skills.

Integrating Internet-based Technology into
Teaching/Learning
  • PDA Uses in Higher Education
  • In 2001, University of South Dakota started
    requiring its freshmen to bring Palm hand-held
    computers to class, along with their notebooks
    and texts.
  • Wake Forest University programmers are working on
    software that would let professors use their
    PDA's to control PowerPoint presentations, turn
    on VCR's from across the room, and quiz students
    on course material.
  • Drexel University has installed a wireless Web
    service that allows students to pick up class
    schedules, grades, and campus news on their
    PDA's.
  • Stanford University law students participated in
    a study, supported by West Publishing, that
    examines the effectiveness of putting legal-study
    materials on PDA's.
  • Marketing students at Bentley College have used
    their PDA's as clipboards during market-research
    assignments.
  • Dartmouth College, the University of Iowa's
    business college, and Duke and Brigham Young
    Universities all require students to have
    hand-held devices for some classes.
  • VCU is implementing infrared kiosks around
    campus so that mobile PDA users can easily
    HotSync to the network to use email and download
    web clipping content. Other projects are under
    discussion such as the possibility of hosting a
    higher education PDA conference at which
    presentations can be made and ideas shared.
  • Faculty members in Counseling and Human
    Development Services (CHDS) at Kent State
    University have conducted research and training
    using some of the most current PDA technology. An
    analysis of how such technology can be integrated
    into the role and function of Counselor Educators
    and Health Educators is currently being analyzed.

Integrating Internet-based Technology into
Teaching/Learning
  • PDA Uses in Public Schools
  • ? University High School (Irvine, CA) --- Part
    of a national pilot program for the first
    handheld device specifically designed for use in
    ongoing classroom testing - the Classroom Wizard
    from Scantron Corp. This technology allowed
    teachers to administer pop quizzes at any time.
    The answers are scored instantaneously and posted
    on the student's desktop computer in realtime,
    while class is in session. In a glance, the
    instructor can immediately identify and follow
    the comprehension level of each individual in the
    entire class, make necessary adjustments to the
    lesson or assist individual students who need a
    little extra help. Hudgins, B. (2001) T.H.E.
    Journal,29 (5), p. 46.
  • ? Smithtown School District (Smithtown, NY)
    --- In a partnership with local vendor Symbol
    Technologies Inc. and education reseller
    SchoolSoft, Santa Monica, CA, the school district
    has begun to use handhelds in the classroom to
    collect grades, take attendance and keep track of
    student records. Pepe, M. (1999, Nov. 15).
    School district uses handhelds in class to
    wirelessly record grades, attendance data.
    Computer Reseller News. 869, p.281.
  • ? The Childrens Technology Workshop (Toronto,
    Ontario, Canada). The Childrens Technology
    Workshop uses handheld computers with children to
    view step-by-step directions and plans for the
    robots they are building. They also use the
    handhelds to watch AVI movies that are created as
    a part of the mission-based projects. An example
    might be a student-created video simulating an
    emergency transmission from Mars to Earth from
    stranded colonists. http//www.k12handhelds.com/ca

Integrating Internet-based Technology into
Teaching/Learning
  • Newer Technologies in Higher Education
  • Transportable Satellite Internet System (TSIS)
    Provides local wireless capabilities to
    geographically remote locations and other sites
    lacking terrestrial connectivity. Developed by
    OARnet, ITEC-Ohio, the Ohio State University and
    a partnership with American Distance Education
    Consortium (ADEC)
  • Newer Technologies/Applications in Adult
    Education
  • AlphaSmart
  • AlphaSmart 3000 allows adult learners to enter
    and edit text, then send it to any computer for
    formatting or directly to a printer. Its
    portability allows adult learners to use it
    anywhere and anytime - in the classroom, at home,
    or on field trips. Its low cost provides
    technology access to an entire classroom of 30
    students for the price of three to four
    computers. The AlphaSmart 3000 extends technology
    dollars, to increase technology access, and to
    alleviate the equity issues at school.
  • Dana is a true alternative to the laptop. It
    combines the affordability of a handheld with the
    ergonomic benefits of a notebook computer. Adult
    learners can print directly to many USB or
    IrDA-enabled printers add MultiMediaCard or SD
    (Secure Digital) cards and easily exchange files
    with many popular PC applications like Microsoft
    Word and Excel.
