Agenda for presentation

Agenda for presentation

  • Background with technology integration

    • 15 minutes

  • Introductions of stations with laboratory activities

    • 15 minutes

  • Participant interactions with stations

    • 30 minutes

Background context

Background / context

  • First and foremost, we wanted to explicitly link the pre-service teacher education program with the in-service needs of the secondary science education community.

  • Second, we wished to integrate appropriate technology instruction in the secondary science methods course.

  • Third, we wanted to further establish partnerships/networks throughout the education community using comprehensive training for everyone vested.

Research

Research

  • Traditional age college seniors (who were student teachers this past spring) have never known a time when there were not personal computers.

  • Linn, Songer, Lewis & Sterm (1991) and Mokros and Tinker (1987) note technologies such as probeware have aided students’ construction of scientific concepts.

  • Krajcik & Layman (2004) states the tools are powerful and help to improve students’ abilities in graphing and conducting experiments.

Mentoring

Mentoring

  • Student interns

    • Understandings of learning to teach typically involve the placement of a mentee or novice teacher with a more experienced mentor whose role is to supervise and guide the mentee.

    • However, with regard to emerging technologies, many mentees are more knowledgeable and skilled in the use of such technologies than their mentors (Dexter & Reidel, 2003; Smith & Kubasko, 2005).

  • The NETS-T standards call for all interns to “guide collaborative learning activities in which students use technology resources to solve authentic problems in the subject area (ISTE, 2006)”

Guiding principals

Guiding Principals

  • The standards guiding the development and integration of curricula are the proposed guidelines for using technology in the preparation of science teachers (Flick & Bell, 2000) and are as follows:

    • Technology should be introduced in the context of science content.

    • Technology should address worthwhile science with appropriate pedagogy.

    • Technology instruction in science should take advantage of the unique features of technology.

    • Technology should make scientific views more accessible.

    • Technology instruction should develop students' understanding of the relationship between technology and science.

Obstacles to integrating technology

Obstacles to integrating technology

  • All content area interns and partnership teachers were asked to respond to a number of items that have been identified as barriers to integrating technology.

  • Teachers viewed these barriers to be statistically significantly from their interns views:

    • Lack or limited access to computers,

    • availability of software,

    • too much material to cover,

    • lack of mentoring, and

    • technology integrated lessons require too much preparation.

Pre service teacher education

Pre-service Teacher Education

  • Middle/Secondary students are trained in their science methods courses to use of data collection devices and other technologies to teach science concepts during field experiences internships.

  • Lateral entry students are encouraged to used tools in their current science classes)

Probeware emerging technologies

Probeware & Emerging Technologies

  • Laboratory Experience - Probe ware sensors, ProScopes (laptop, Palm, TI calculators)

  • Lesson Planning - Taskstream web site (lesson building, discussions, portfolio)

  • Instructional Design - Concept mapping software (Inspiration & Kidspiration); web based resources

  • Inquiry Concepts - Data Visualization Tools (River Run); Explore science

Overview of presentation

Overview of Presentation

  • An opportunity to interact with current UNCW students and see how they use advanced technologies (probe ware) to teach science content during internship experience

  • The presenters will demonstrate the activities and may ask you to also participate in the demonstrations
