Develop new strategies for using computers in the classroom Educators have talked about using information technology to improve teaching since the beginning of the modern computer movement but true integration remains an elusive goal—for most. Classroom Integration of Type II Uses of Technology in Education finds teachers who have managed to take advantage of the sophistication, power, and affordability of today’s technology to develop new and better strategies for learning, despite the absence of an effective institutional infrastructure. This unique book reviews effective Type II teaching applications and software used at all educational levels, including Lego/Logo technologies, idea technologies, graphics software, laptop computers, and handheld computers. Information technology in schools has failed to fulfill its considerable potential because without a widespread instructional support system, computers are generally poorly used and not integrated meaningfully into classroom activities. But some educators have still been able to implement Type II applications of information technology in their educational settings. Classroom Integration of Type II Uses of Technology in Education looks at their innovative methods of using computers to bring about more effective teaching—and learning. Classroom Integration of Type II Uses of Technology in Education examines: computer activities of grade 1-5 students using Lego/Logo technologies using Kid-Pix graphics software for creative activities the Technology Integration Assessment Instrument (TIAI) gender disparity in computer-oriented problem solving a three-tiered, idea-technology classification system pre-service teacher preparation assistive technology definitions, legislation, and implementation issues lesson plans and document techniques for laptop computers an action/instructional model for using handheld wireless computers in the classroom Classroom Integration of Type II Uses of Technology in Education is an invaluable resource for academics working in information technology and education, and for K-12 teachers and administrators at all levels.

Spark your students to actually want to learn through the creative application of technology! Type II applications in education make it possible to teach in new and more effective ways. Type II Uses of Technology in Education: Projects, Case Studies, and Software Applications clearly explains methods and strategies presently used by teachers to offer students a creative learning experience through the application of technology. Each chapter presents individual examples of how teachers have applied technology in schools and classrooms, illustrating through case studies, projects, and software applications how to effectively spark students’ interest and learning. Type II Uses of Technology in Education is the third in a series (Internet Applications of Type II Uses of Technology in Education and Classroom Integration of Type II Uses of Technology in Education, both from Haworth) that provides a clear view of the advantages—and challenges—involved in the use of technology to enhance and actively involve students in the learning process. The applications described and discussed at length here go beyond the mundane educational functions like grading or presenting drill and practice exercises to explore fresh ways of teaching and learning. Students can become involved and actually want to learn, all through the use of creative technology application. The book also includes tables and figures to enhance understanding of the material. Type II Uses of Technology in Education discusses: data collection, analysis, and communication in student research using pocket PCs and laptops the educational effect of using a learning object as a pedagogical model rather than simply being technological in nature examples of integrated Type II activities e-learning courses using interactive video, WebCT, and on-site discussion groups electronic discussion applications in a laptop university teacher education program challenges facing students using computers to enhance and express the extent of their learning information and communication technology (ICT) integration into schools—using three illustrative case studies forward planning needed to make the difficult change to technological application for learning a case study that used problem-based learning software with at-risk students using technology to reinforce visual learning strategies digital portfolio development as a Type II application interactive computer technology in art instruction on-demand help features for effective interactive learning experience Personal Educational Tools (PETs) Type II Uses of Technology in Education: Projects, Case Studies, and Software Applications provides numerous illustrations of technology learning in action and is perfect for educators and students in programs dealing with information technology in education, and for public school personnel with interests and responsibilities in using information technology in the classroom.

Give your students a powerful learning resource--the Internet! The Internet, though brimming with potential, is still vastly underused as a teaching resource. Internet Applications of Type II Uses of Technology in Education gives teachers new strategies for the Internet's use as a dynamic educational resource. Where Type I teaching applications technologically mimic the procedures previously used by teachers, Type II teaching applications involve innovative thinking in the use of technology in learning. Using Type II applications with the Internet, students are actively empowered to look to its use as an effective partner in their learning process. This book clearly reviews several Type II teaching applications and integrative software for use in all educational levels, including Internet videoconferencing, instant messages, WebQuests, and WebCT. Though now readily available, even those schools with the capability fail to effectively integrate computer and Internet technology into meaningful classroom activities. Using the Internet as a teaching and learning tool offers a flexibility that can be extremely effective. Internet Applications of Type II Uses of Technology in Education clearly shows how some creative educators have implemented inventive Type II applications in their teaching plans to give their students a more enriching learning experience. Internet Applications of Type II Uses of Technology in Education explores: critically evaluating Web site information how perceptions and behaviors change when Internet access becomes universally available Internet2 Videoconferencing integrating online communication into courses utilizing computer-mediated communication (CMC) tools structured online class discussions using Instant Messenger (IM) increasing vocabulary through software and online texts online learning in second-language acquisition (SLA) a project in New Zealand in which teachers and students learn Web design with the help of an external expert WebQuests as a Type II application WebCT as a Type II application achievement testing through the computer the Global Forum on School Leadership (GFSL) as a Type II application Internet Applications of Type II Uses of Technology in Education is a valuable, idea-generating resource for all academics working in information technology and education, and for K-12 teachers and administrators at all levels.

This book focuses more on general concepts, theory, and research on teaching, learning, and technology rather than on hands-on assignments at the computer. This book is most suitable for teachers who already have basic computing skills and want to focus on integration of technology in the classroom. This book is geared toward answering the question: "What would a teacher do differently if she/he used computers in her/his classroom?" The book links actual practice to underlying theories of both teaching and learning, and helps readers develop their own framework for thinking about educational computing. For educators who are interested in developing a technology-based classroom or teaching style.
