Communicator, v21 n1 Jan 1991
This journal issue gathers together several articles on teaching with technology, with special focus on teaching of gifted students in California. "Computers and Creativity: Tools, Tasks, and Possibilities" (Bernard J. Dodge) discusses how teachers can establish an environment that will nurture creativity through use of computers. "Technology Resources in Education (TRIE): Opportunities for Collaboration" (Craig Blurton) explains how teachers of gifted and talented students can make use of the TRIE electronic information service developed by the California Technology Project. "Increasing Educational Options through Distance Learning" (Robert Threlkeld), focusing primarily on distance learning for rural areas, examines the use of satellites and telephone lines and cites exemplary land-based distance learning programs. "Technology, the Gifted, and the Language Arts" (Stephen Marcus) describes new technologies for teaching language arts to gifted students, while emphasizing that the tools' vitality depends on talented teachers who offer an informed exuberance. In "An Open Letter to Parents of Students," David Moursund notes the importance of student access to computers and the value of integrating computer use with reading, writing, arithmetic, and problem-solving instruction. "Vision: Technologically Enriched School of Tomorrow (TEST)" (Gary G. Bitter) presents five recommendations of the International Society for Technology in Education. "Alternatives to Integrated Instructional Systems" (Peter Kelman) criticizes integrated instructional systems as being an inappropriate use of computers with students at risk and wasteful of limited school computer resources. Other papers include: "Technology and Change: From the Renaissance World to Microworlds" (Gail Marshall); "Empowering the Teacher" (David Dockterman); "Confessions of a Maverick Moderate" (Anne Beversdorf); and "An Investigation of Giftedness in Economically Disadvantaged and Limited English Proficiency Students" (Mary M. Frasier). (JDD)
