Competency 006
  • The Master Technology Teacher demonstrates

  • by Conrado Gonzalez for 6343.60 taken Spring 2013

Competency 006
  1. Knows how to use productivity tools (e.g.,
    spreadsheets, databases, word processors,
    graphics applications) to communicate
    effectively.
  2. Knows how to select and use various presentation

Productivity Tools

Productivity Tools
  • Spreadsheets
  • Lotus 1-2-3 (old school)
  • Excel (Mac, PC)
  • Numbers (Mac)
  • Google Products (Cloud-based, browser)
  • LibreOffice or Open Office(Multi-platform and
    Open Source, which in laymans terms means
    legally free).

5
Productivity Tools
  • Spreadsheets (Continued)
  • Recommend these tools when dealing with numbers,
    calculations, such as budgets, fund-raisers, or
    dealing with statistics, such as that prevalent
    in administrative work in schools.
  • Keep in mind the equipment available, in order to
    recommend a tool that makes sense and will be
    useful.

6
Hopefully, you wont recommend this!
  • J/K...no really dont recommend this.

7
Productivity Tools
  • Databases
  • Access (PC).
  • Filemaker Pro and the friendlier Bento (Mac).
  • Google Products (Cloud-based, browser)
  • LibreOffice or Open Office(Multi-platform and
    Open Source, which in laymans terms means
    legally free...I should probably drop this silly
    comment by now).
  • Recommend this tool when quick access (no pun
    intended) to specific files will be primordial in
    the future.

8
This is how Bento looks on the Mac.
  • Kinda cute yet very powerful.

9
Productivity Tools
  • Word Processors
  • Probably the most familiar and useful for
    educators.
  • Word (PC and Mac).
  • Pages (Mac).
  • Google Products (Cloud-based, browser)

10
Productivity Tools
  • Word Processors (continued)
  • LibreOffice or Open Office(Multi-platform and
    Open Source...(there I dropped that previous
    nonsensical comment).
  • Recommend this tool when the written word the
    most important thing that you need communicate
    (papers, letters, proposals, and so on).

11
Hopefully, youll be more useful
  • than this guy when recommending a word processor

12
Productivity Tools
  • Graphics Applications
  • Adobe Photoshop (Mac, PC)
  • Gimp (OpenSource Mac, PC, Linux).
  • Photoshop Elements (Mac, PC)
  • iPhoto (Mac)
  • Consider your audience when recommending the
    appropriate tool.

Presentation Formats
15
Presentation Formats
  • Slideshows
  • If your presentation is rich in media, such as
    pictures and short films, then slideshows make
    sense.
  • If you need to present online as part of a
    college course online,then perhaps a slideshow
    would make sense too as it is easy to share via
    a service such as Blackboard.

16
Presentation Formats
  • Slideshows (continued)
  • Please recommend that creators of slideshows have
    a consistency in their use of a format to assure
    compatibility regardless of platform use to
    present it.
  • I, for instance, create a pdf version of my
    slideshows...just in case.

19
Presentation Formats
  • Posters, newsletters, etc
  • If you need to present and your ideas are better
    convey through the display of words then choose
    posters, brochures, reports, newsletters and the
    likes.
  • As a Master Technology Teacher you will recommend
    one of the above mentioned as you weight the pros
    and cons that each has and how these fit better
    with the intentions of the presenter.
  • Remember that the incorporation of technology in
    the production of text can encourage some
    reluctant writers (teachers or students) to GTD
    (get things done).

Dont forget about good ol Wordle

22
Final Points
  • Please expect things to continue to change,
    perhaps at a faster rate than ever before, as the
    emergence of mobile computing starts to
    proliferate and become the de facto form of
    technology for the newer generations.
  • Even as we speak, children are starting to see
    the mouse and keyboard as My dads computer.
  • Dont be fooled into thinking that the newer
    generations know it all in technology just
    because they feel so comfortable using it.

23
Final Points
  • Normally that could mean that they know how to
    use technology for consumption.
  • It is our jobs as Master Technology Teachers to
    spread the use of technology for the creation of
    new and original content in whatever form this
    takes.
