9780131721180: Supporting Learning with Technology: Essentials of Classroom Practice

The author has written a new and unique text for courses in Computers in Education or Instructional Media and Technology.  The purpose of this text is to address what technology teachers should know and be able to do, but the focus is on learners and learning rather than on the technology itself.  The book is unique in that it presents the students’ learning goals first rather than the technology tool, thereby focusing on the learner and the learning rather than the technology. 

 

The examples throughout the chapters present ideas for tasks that can be completed with a variety of tools rather than one specific tool that teachers may not have access to.  Each chapter includes a brief summary of research from educational technology, learning theory, and other areas to build a foundation for chapter examples and activities.  The chapters also include examples for learning in a variety of contexts and content areas and can be applied easily to teaching other ideas and subjects.  A unique chapter (Chapter 9) on teacher productivity helps support future educators in their everyday tasks.

 

The book illustrates what technology-enhanced learning can be like today and prepares teachers and administrators for what may come tomorrow.   

 

Some of the pedagogical features in the book include: 

 

Cases–These appear at the beginning of each chapter and provide a framework for the chapter discussion that follows. 

~These cases are compelling snapshots from real classrooms that help students to connect educational concepts to the real world.

~Related questions within and at the end of each chapter encourage the reader to think critically about the material and its related application to the classroom.

 

Meet the Needs of Today’s Students feature–Each chapter contains margin notes to help the readers address the learning needs of ALL students including those with diverse needs and English Language Learners.

 

Meeting the Standards feature–This feature shows how the National Educational Technology Standards connect to the learning goal of each chapter.

~Additional state standards are listed on the book’s companion website.

From the Back Cover:

Why is learning with technology so important for today’s classrooms?And how can educators find time to become familiar with technology in order to use it in classrooms? Supporting Learning with Technology: Essentials of Classroom Practice provides a new, unique approach tailored for future educators like you.

 

Organized by Student Learning Goals

Unique in its presentation of student’s learning goals first rather than the technology tool — it focuses you on the learner and learning rather than the technology.

 

Each chapter presents:

  • a learning goal supported by a foundation of research and theory.
  • guidelines, examples and activities to consider when creating technology-enhanced lessons.
  • A variety of technology tools and lesson activities across grade levels and content areas.

 

The “Essentials”

No need to wade through a lot of information — this text provides the basics you need to know to integrate technology into your future classroom while providing classroom examples that can be used with a variety of technology tools rather than just one.

 

Meet the Needs of Today’s Students

Integrated Learning Needs Margin Notes — help you address the learning needs of ALL students including English Language Learners (ELL) and other students with diverse needs.

 

Integrated Assessment— This text provides a number of assessment tools such as rubrics, checklists, and other assessment forms.

  Application for Today’s Classroom

Case-Based Approach —  A classroom-based case invites you into each chapter to explore learning goals and technology. Related case-based questions within and at the end of each chapter encourage you to critically consider chapter material and its application to the classroom.

 

Guidelines and Tips -- provide quick, quality teaching guidelines for instruction at your fingertips.

 

Technology Tools — features identify what technology tools will help you reach your intended learning goal for your future students.

 

Learning Activities — provide you with an opportunity to apply the chapter’s guidelines and technology tool discussions to a variety of learning activities related to all grade levels and content areas.

 

Sample Lesson — The end of every chapter presents a lesson plan based on the opening case and walks you through how the educator adapted it to meet learners’ needs by utilizing the text’s Lesson Analysis and Adaptation Worksheet provided in chapter 1. 

 

Teacher Productivity— This unique chapter helps support future educators in their everyday tasks.  

Review:

“I wish that this text had been available a year ago for the courses I will be teaching starting next week. It provides the type of approach that my students truly need. The focus is on teaching, learning, instructional design...and then technology....What my students need is what this book provides — a true look at the why and how of technology integration and the relationship to higher order thinking skills. I am very impressed.”

-David Bullock, Ed.D.

Portland State University

 

“I would definitely adopt this book and encourage the department not only to adopt it, but also to use it as a catalyst for curriculum redesign. I think we could easily combine it with a foundations course and TRULY integrate and model technology.”

-Donna Baumbach

University of Central Florida
