Overview
Overview Multidisciplinary Technology Integration

  • Theoretical background

  • Description of the project

  • Multidisciplinary activities

  • Conclusions


Theoretical background
Theoretical background Multidisciplinary Technology Integration

  • Assessment by NCATE Task Force on Technology and Teacher Education (1997):

    • Pre-service teachers rarely have an occasion for applying technology in their courses and are not engaged in role models of faculty teaching with technology

    • This finding applies to all content areas, including mathematics, science, and social studies


Context
Context Multidisciplinary Technology Integration

  • It has been suggested by several authors that teacher education programs should provide learning experiences for pre-teachers in using a computer as an exploratory tool in both theoretical and applied contexts with a focus on “learning with technology, not about technology” (Shaw, 1997) during all stages of their education including regular coursework and student teaching.


Context1
Context Multidisciplinary Technology Integration

  • As Browning and Klespis (2000) have pointed out, pre-teachers should be given authentic experiences in developing technology-enabled activities for a pre-college classroom.

  • Willis (2001) has extended this recommendation by arguing that pre-teachers should be given opportunities for professional growth including teaching their own technology-enhanced lessons.


Three approaches to technology-enhanced mathematics pedagogy for elementary pre-teachers (SUNY Potsdam)

  • Introduce pre-teachers to the pedagogy through a computer-enhanced mathematics methods course

  • Offer a course that focuses on the design of technology-enabled lessons of mathematics

  • Introduce technology into a mathematics teacher preparation program that is grounded in pre-teachers’ participation in a methods course with a student teaching (field experience) component.


These three approaches parallel garofalo s 2000 notion of the primary user of technology
These three approaches parallel Garofalo’s (2000) notion of the primary user of technology

  • Teacher educator as the primary user

  • Pre-teachers are being prepared to be the primary users

  • Pre-teachers are being prepared to have their students to be primary users


Participants
Participants of the primary user of technology

  • Pre-service elementary teachers in a graduate program (SUNY Potsdam)

  • Third-grade students (Banford Elementary School)

  • University faculty

  • School faculty


Goals of collaboration
Goals of collaboration of the primary user of technology

  • Develop set of multidisciplinary activities for younger children that integrate off- and on-computer activities, including the Internet and spreadsheets

  • Use spreadsheet as an exploratory tool

  • Using computers in elementary teacher education in the strongest sense


Goals of collaboration1
Goals of Collaboration of the primary user of technology

  • Affecting elementary pre-teachers’ beliefs about technology

  • Helping the school to integrate computers into curriculum

Multidisciplinary activity temperature project
Multidisciplinary activity: of the primary user of technologyTemperature project

  • Use of the Internet to collect data

  • Use of spreadsheets to represent data

  • Use of spreadsheets to analyze data

  • Use of spreadsheets to put mathematics in the context of temperature patterns

  • Use of sequential building of task complexity

Conclusions
Conclusions of the primary user of technology

  • Authors believe that the project:

    • enabled the pre-teachers to act as agents of change in the PDS environment

    • helped them to develop a disposition towards the fieldwork classroom as a site for inquiry
