It mostly enhances the learning process. I love that so many aspects are covered in school…even in elementary school, they have Excel. You have to have technological skills for almost any job now, and if you dont talk about that in school, students just arent going to have that access.
It can mean almost nothing at times; at other times it can be much more extensive. Sometimes its just a matter of somebody showing a PowerPoint and calling it technology integration. It varies from classroom to classroom. Some people dont want to learn new things; theyre set in their ways.
As sensibly as it can. As technology increases in our environment, students need to be prepared, which means they need access. I dont think three computers in a classroom is adequate access. I dont think every student needs a laptop, but there need to be more computer labs and laptop carts.
More computers, enough for at least half the students in the class, definitely the SMART Boards…I do think its realistic to have half the classroom working on the computers.
Yes. In my daughters science class, they did iMovies all the time, so shes very adept at that now. My older one was always more technologically adept than his teacher. The reason kids learn is that they have so much background already.
No, because they dont have enough access. Until the kids are using the technology…you only learn so much from watching somebody.
Absolutely. I dont know how children who dont have computers do assignments. The teachers have an expectation…for example, my daughter had to do a really elaborate PowerPoint with all the bells and whistles. I know shes learned most of that at school.
It so varies. Some teachers use absolutely no technology in the classroom, and some teachers are constantly using it. My son once had a German teacher who never even unpacked her SMART Board!
Yes, but mostly just in their technology skills. I dont know if I can make a direct correlation between their technology integration and their actual knowledge in other content areas. But to use the technology in other content areas, they have to have the background.
Consistent access to computers. Having access to computers prepares students for a future where technology and technology skills are vital.
More access. Its still the biggest limitation that they dont have adequate access.
Integrate it into lessons so that theyre using technology in content areas. I dont know that it makes learning in the content area any better, but at least theyre learning the technology as theyre learning the content area.
