Adding Technology to the Classroom
  • Learning Management Systems
  • Instructional delivery
  • Student projects

3
Learning Management Systems
  • Instructor involvement guides appropriate
  • use, both in terms of the nature of use and
  • the extent of use and instructor
  • involvement contributes to student benefits
  • by affecting LMS information quality
  • (Klobas McGill, 2010).

Learning Management Systems
5
Learning Management Systems
  • Instructors can utilize an LMS in several ways,
  • including
  • organization of course content
  • inclusion of interactive discussion forums
  • weekly announcements/reminders
  • electronic submission of assignments and
    assessments
  • innovative instructional delivery (i.e., links to
    YouTube, VoiceThread, or Prezi)
  • posting of individual and aggregate scores

6
Instructional Delivery
  • With the explosion of tools, resources,
  • and professional development for
  • teachers, now is the perfect time to
  • support deeper conceptual understanding
  • of content by integrating technology
  • in the classroom (McCormack Ross,
  • 2010).

7
Instructional Delivery
  • Instructors can enhance delivery of course
  • content with applications including
  • VoiceThread
  • Prezi
  • YouTube
  • Audio comments/memos
  • Dropbox

8
VoiceThread
VoiceThread is a free program that allows the
creator to combine images, documents or videos
with comments. Students can then listen to the
commentary, which advances much like a PowerPoint.
9
Prezi
Prezi is a free, online alternative to
PowerPoint. The advantages are a unique format,
unlimited memory and easy access.
10
YouTube
With YouTube, you can provide students with links
to welcome videos, video lectures, or video
reminders.
11
Audio Comments
Audacity and AudioMemos (an iPad app) are just
two of many audio recording applications that
allow you to record a comment, a lecture or a
reminder and convert it to an mp3 or wav file.
These files can be sent to students via email or
posted in an LMS, and students can access them
multiple times.
12
Dropbox
  • Dropbox basically acts as an online flashdrive.
  • You can load folders, files, photos, and videos
  • into this free site, and you can access them with
  • any of your devices (i.e., laptop, mobile phone,
  • tablet).

13
Student Projects
  • To ensure students are fully engaged in the
  • learning process, educators must explore every
  • available path for both formative and
  • summative assessments. Therefore,
  • technology-based instruction must be given a
  • place in schools and become a part of the
  • mainstream curriculum (Aronin ONeal,
  • 2011).

14
Student Projects
  • Students can engage more deeply with classroom
    content
  • via the use of digital technologies, including
    software,
  • hardware and the Internet.
  • Some great classroom additions include
  • MapSkip
  • ToonDoo
  • Video editing software
  • Survey creators
  • Shared document applications
  • Website builders

15
MapSkip
  • MapSkip allows students to understand the
  • importance of place-based writing. It also
    provides
  • students with an opportunity to consider how
    situations
  • and locations can be connected to writing,
    geography,
  • history, social sciences, and more.

16
ToonDoo
  • There are a variety of different uses for
    cartoons
  • in the classroom, but this example shows its use
    as a
  • graphic organizer for the final research project.
  • Constructing dialogue also immerses students in
    the
  • conversation surrounding their topic.

17
Videos
  • Students can use free programs, such as
  • Animoto, or they can use video editing software
  • (iMovie or Windows Movie Maker) to create
  • visual essays, video trailers, PSAs, and more.

18
Surveys
  • Free online survey sites allow students to
    consider
  • pertinent questions when researching, and it
  • allows them to gather primary research. Analysis
    of
  • the results of their surveys can help them
    ascertain
  • purpose, audience, and thesis as well.

19
Shared Documents
  • Group projects are more easily planned and
  • executed when using collaborative applications
  • such as Google docs or wikis. Students can
  • share with instructors students can also work
  • together at any time and from any place.

20
Website Builders
  • Students can use website builders to create
  • electronic portfolios or to display a class
    project.
  • Website construction hones organizational skills,
  • encourages active participation, and fosters
    creativity
  • and decision-making skills.

21
Benefits of Building Your Own Toolkit
  • A toolkit allows the owner to choose the
  • appropriate tool at the appropriate time.
  • Fundamentally, the end goal
  • should always be about student
  • achievement and engagement the
  • technology is just one tool for reaching
  • that goal (Martineau, 2009).
