Technology Literacy

  1. 1. Enhancing Technology Literacy in the Classroom Educators today and in the next 20+ years are preparing students for a globally competitive economy. Increasing our student’s technology proficiency and problem solving expertise will not only benefit them in the future, but create a globally active and humanitarian society.
  2. 2. Why should educators take on the burden of “yet another” curriculum? <ul><li>Technology is changing everyday. </li></ul><ul><li>Education is moving towards online and distance education opportunities becoming more commonplace than face-to-face. </li></ul><ul><li>Students are already immersed in technology outside of the school </li></ul><ul><li>It is the new way of communicating to a broad spectrum of people </li></ul>
  3. 3. Who has the time? <ul><li>YOU do! You don’t have time not to use technology. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers are already creating resources and posting them online daily for other teachers to STEAL! </li></ul><ul><li>Many districts have provided their curriculum with technology integrated seamlessly into the lessons for you. </li></ul><ul><li>You can simply alter your “good lesson plans” to include notes by powerpoint, projector screen, SMART board interactive games and much more! </li></ul><ul><li>Invite your students to email you their homework or create a blog and students can post their homework to the blog. You can go to one place to grade the work and you don’t have to mess with any papers!!! </li></ul>
  4. 4. What if I don’t know that much about technology? <ul><li>The beauty of technology is there are always help buttons in most applications that help you learn. </li></ul><ul><li>You can learn a new program or application simply by trying out with your students.

  5. 5. Ok, I have a great lesson that includes technology, but not enough computers. Now what? <ul><li>Most schools have a projector screen or SMART board you can check out. </li></ul><ul><li>Ask students to pair up and work with a partner. This promotes collaboration and problem solving—two vital skills in today’s work place. </li></ul><ul><li>Create a rotating schedule where students can participate in the lesson on the computer independently, and you can teach the rest of the class the other material in rotations. </li></ul><ul><li>Schedule a time to use your school’s computer lab and conduct your lesson in there. Kids will love it! </li></ul>
