1 Audio, Visual, and Digital Technologies in Teaching Lesson 7 Chapters 9 and 10Audio, Visual, and Digital Technologies in Teaching
2 After this lesson, the learner will be able to . . . Define listening, focused listening, hearing, visual, visual communication, multimediaJustify using audio, visual, and digital technologies in instructionGive examples of traditional audio media and digital audio mediaList the design elements in an effective visualGive examples of projected and non-projected visuals
3 ContList different ways multimedia can be used in teaching and learningGive examples of traditional video technologies, digital video technologies, and Internet video and their educational applicationDescribe the considerations for implementing video in instruction
4 Key Terms Exhibits Listening CD Focused listening Models Hearing VisualVisual communicationMultimediaExhibitsCDModelsReal ObjectsTalking BookTransparencyWorking in groups, share with the class the textbook definition of the terms above.
5 Technologies in Education Audio—addresses the needs of the auditory learner and adds dimension to instruction for all learnersVisual—content is articulated, clarified, and enhanced visuallyDigital—continue to replace traditional audio/visual media
6 Why use audio, visual, and digital technologies in teaching? Engage more of the learners sensesBuild multiple cognitive connection to the contentAddress the auditory or visual strengths of many studentsGive some examples of technologies you have seen used in college or school classrooms.
7 Listening vs Focused Listening Listening—being able to hear and comprehend auditory stimuliHearing—the physical process of correctly receiving clear, audible soundsFocused Listening—Giving one’s full attention to an auditory stimulusWhat are some things teachers can do to ensure students are focused listening?
8 Traditional Audio Media Cassette tapesReinforce instruction/practiceBroadcast audioNational Public RadioNational Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (weather service broadcasts)How would YOU use these technologies in your classroom?
9 How would YOU use these technologies in your classroom? Digital Audio MediaOptical MediaCDs and DVDsInternet AudioDownload/store what you need rather than buying CDInternet RadioLive and recorded programs from around worldCan enhance language, social studies, science, etc.Can be broadcast for entire class, group, or individualHow would YOU use these technologies in your classroom?
10 Visual Technologies Types of Visuals Educators must select the most effective and appropriate visual technology for the content under study. Lever-Duffy, p. 294.Types of VisualsNon-projectedReal objects, models, exhibits, printed materials, photosProjectedOverhead projector/transparency, digital projector, document camera
11 Elements of Effective Visual Design RelevanceCoherenceConsistencyProportionContrastUnity and DirectionThe same guidelines for creating effective transparencies are applicable to posters, flyers, slideshows, and/or other visuals.Minimal text (7 lines by 7 words)Eliminate unnecessary detailInclude simple graphics that add interest
12 Multimedia in Teaching and Learning Multimedia includes text, graphics, audio, and/or videoPhotographSimple clipartVideo clip with sound
13 Traditional Video Technologies Broadcast videoTelevision (including instructional television)Cablecast videoCable channels that offer instructional programmingRecorded video technologiesVCRs and camcordersCapture video images of field trips, your teaching, etc.Record special events, reports, debates, documentariesCreate a video historical or cultural archive of the school or community
14 Digital Video Technologies Captures and displays high quality sounds and imagesDVDsDigital video cameraCompressed video systemsBring live, fully interactive instruction from one location to the nextDistant guest speakers visit classrooms without travelImage and sound are as clear as broadcast videsBoth locations must have appropriate equipmentParticularly useful for distance learning
15 Internet Video Internet Broadcasts Live Cams Internet Meetings Live events and performancesMusicals, interviews, scientific or historic eventsLive CamsA camera connected to a computer that is connected to the InternetInternet MeetingsFace to face meetings with people around the worldClasses can meet in a single virtual classroom to share ideas, experience instruction, and communicate
16 Implementing Video in Instruction PreplanPreview and evaluate video before presentationPrepare the environment AND the studentsMake the video relevant to the studentsPre-post testStudy guidesQuestions/discussion after videoNote-taking requirementsInform students that test will include questions from videoFollow all copyright laws and fair use guidelines
17 REMEMBER . . .The power of the Internet can put the world body of knowledge quite literally at one’s fingertips. A computer in a classroom can be an endlessly patient and positive tutor. An audio recording of a children’s story can encourage the development of good listening skills and meet the needs of auditory learners, and a nature video can bring the most remote corner of the world into the classroom.
