Remember that technology is a tool….just like a pencil.

Using the tool effectively…

will promote learning in a 21st century global economy

  • If students use technology to complete lower level tasks, the technology is ineffective. Technology is not the means to the end.

  • Students must learn to create and use other higher level thinking skills.

    Other examples:

  • I asked students to type the definitions of vocabulary words on the computer.

  • I asked students to explain several topics by completing a brochure template that I had created and saved on the student drive.

  • I asked students to express what a network means to them by using AutoShapes in WORD after a mini field trip and notes that relate to networks and how they work.

  • After students learn basic computer devices and components, I give them a scenario of something that has gone wrong with the computer. They must play a technician’s role to diagnose possible causes and solutions. Their product will be a computer created quote from their computer company.

  • I ask the students to use the internet to justify why they would make certain decisions when buying a personal computer. (Purchase bundled software or not? Which is better for you? Why?

  • I ask student to use the internet to research equipment, software, and office furniture, then use a program to create a floorplan, to ulitmately design a Desktop Publishing business based on a scenerio.

Students, Teachers and Technology

  • My 11 year old was invited to a webcam party a couple of days ago, is constantly texting and using the computer and internet on a daily basis. Is she ready for an online learning community? How about other forms of technology assisted learning?

  • Are teachers trained to integrate technology into their classroom or curriculum? Are teachers ready to lead online learning communities for public education students?

  • Monitor the results of assisting softwares for effectiveness. Have a plan to purchase effective softwares and devices. Make sure to remember that technology is a tool, teaching needs to continue to be inspirational and well planned.
