CIESE Mission
  • Improve teaching and learning in K-12 science and
    mathematics through the meaningful integration of
    technology into the curriculum

3
Stevens Institute of Technology
  • Rigorous, private technological university
  • 2,000 undergraduates 2,200 masters and
    Ph.D-level students
  • Engineering
  • Science
  • Technology Management

4
Stevens Institute of Technology
  • First college in world to require students to own
    a PC (1982)
  • Established CIESE in 1988 to bring technology
    integration experience to K-12 to improve student
    achievement in science mathematics

5
CIESE
  • Collegial, collaborative approach
  • Systemic efforts
  • Science and mathematics focus, later other
    subject areas
  • Vendor-neutral

6
Initial Project A Model for CI
  • Five diverse districts
  • Three-year PD collaboration
  • Middle and high school math teachers
    administrators
  • How can these technology resources help you
    teach math topics better?

7
Three-Year Process
  • Year 1 Familiarity Exploration
  • Year 2 Experimentation Implementation
  • Year 3 Refinement Institutionalization

8
Outcomes
  • 3,000 math software titles -gt 300 evaluated by
    practicing teachers -gt 30 recommended
  • Lesson development, sharing, learning community
  • Compendium of exemplary, field-tested lessons
  • Curriculum revision
  • Staff development
  • Broad dissemination

9
Internet-in-Science Initiatives
  • 2.9 million National Science Foundation grant in
    1994 (preceded Netscape)
  • Close collaboration with teachers on useful
    applications of technology
  • Unique and Compelling applications
  • Real time data -Telecollaboration
  • Web publishing -Primary source material

10
Outcomes
  • PD for 3,000 teachers from 700 schools in NJ
  • 30-hour Savvy Cyber Teacher course
  • Scale-up model to reach 10,000 teachers in
  • Phoenix, Arizona
  • Cleveland, Ohio
  • Miami, Florida

11
Technology Integration in TT
  • Share examples
  • Explore planning models and tools
  • Select, prioritize, adapt
  • Identify next steps

12
Q What are key student outcomes expected of new
curriculum?
  • Multiple literacy Ability to adapt and use in
    the real world.
  • Effective problem solver, making decisions,
    finding solutions
  • Student-centered, self-directed learning, e.g.,
    research
  • Responsible, moral, ethical citizenship
  • Communication, self-expression
  • Cultural heritage, contributions of
    multi-culturalism
  • Student empowerment to utilize a variety of
    resources to make decisions
  • Respect of environment

13
Student Outcomes (contd)
  • Reduce inequities
  • Aesthetic expression and enjoyment of expressions
    of others
  • Confidence in using technology/ies
  • Active, healthy lifestyle
  • Multiple intelligences
  • Spiritual values
  • Real-world/authenticity
  • Global interdependence

14
Q How can technology help?
  • Student-centered research
  • Analysis of movement
  • Problem-centered
  • Tutorial
  • Remedial
  • Motivating
  • Access, control, manage info resources
  • Equity implications

15
Technology can
  • Empower teachers
  • Facilitate joint projects, international
    collaboration
  • Individually-based, student-centered
  • Reach wider audience, accessibility of content
    via distance learning
  • Simulations, visualize complex conepts
  • No reinventing the wheel
  • Multimedia, lively presentations
  • School, classroom management (productivity tools)

16
Technology is
  • Not just computer-based
  • Video/multimedia systems
  • CD-ROMs
  • Software
  • Integrated learning systems
  • Web-based resources
  • Computer-Based Laboratory (CBL) systems
  • Productivity tools
  • ITV Networks
  • And MORE

17
Technology Examples from the Classroom
  • PLATO Integrated Learning System
  • International Boiling Point Project
  • The Stowaway Adventure

18
Evaluating Educational Technology Step One
  • Identify instructional need
  • Do basic skills need to be improved?
  • Is increasing problem solving skills important?
  • What areas of curriculum lend themselves to
    alternative delivery formats?
  • Analyze hardware capabilities
  • What operating system(s) will be used?
  • How much RAM is available? Processor power?
  • Factor in management issues
  • Long term plans (e.g. network, Internet)
  • Student-to-computer ratios

19
Evaluating Educational Technology Step Two
  • Identify software titles
  • Educational journals
  • Catalogs
  • Educational technology books (see ISTE)
  • Technology and curriculum conferences
  • Obtain demo or preview versions of software
  • Most have 30-day free evaluation periods

20
Evaluating Educational Technology Step Three
  • Evaluate technology resources
  • Use rubrics on software quality and content
  • Review online databases and magazines
  • Have high end technology users test
    demonstration software
  • Include students in evaluation process

21
Classifications of Educational Technology
  • Tutorial
  • Exploratory
  • Tool/Application
  • Communication

22
Technology-Learning Scale
23
Q How to get from here to there?

25
Building a Technology Knowledge Base Content
Process
  • Research Lessons Learned
  • Explore Existing Resources
  • Disseminate and Document

26
Day Two Agenda
  • Report back on yesterdays discussion
  • Synthesize reports
  • Review curriculum infusion process
  • Demonstration Social studies Form 1
  • Breakout groups identifying technology
    resources for Form 1 curriculum
  • Report back on progress and next steps
  • Practical strategies and conclusion

27
Your assignment
  • What have we done already? What do we know?
  • What additional data, information, research do we
    need?
  • What are the questions we hope to answer?
  • What are our immediate next steps?
  • What obstacles/challenges will we face?
  • Report back

28
Curriculum Infusion Getting Started
  • Identify the top educational need/goal in your
    Form I curriculum area (i.e. math basic skills,
    appreciation of global interdependence).
  • What class of educational technology will best
    meet your need?
  • Can you identify a specific technology resource
    (i.e. Microsoft Word or PLATO ILS) to pilot? If
    yes, which one?

29
Curriculum Infusion Getting Started
  • If not, how will you identify promising resources
    (software evaluation guides, software reviews,
    technology conferences, recommendations)?
  • Identify next steps (finalize technology
    selection, identify pilot group).
  • How will you capture and document the experiences
    from the pilot to recommend next steps (wider
    implementation, teacher training)?

Next Steps/Action Items for Pilot Technology
Application
  • Planning committees
  • Building in planning and research time
  • Assessment/baseline data collection
  • Careful pilot selection-reduce barriers/ensure
    optimal success
  • Classroom documentaries-capturing,sharing
  • Using discipline specific societies
  • MOE web site updates, recognition

34
Practical Strategies
  • Implementation specialists
  • Principal Institutes
  • Tech Expos
  • Seed grants
  • Incentives/IMPACT Awards
  • Capturing/Capitalizing on individual research
    (Action-research)
  • Online programs
