Educational Technology Equipped Classrooms: Re-Design Based on Faculty Feedback.
Anderson, James A.; Cichocki, Ronald R.
An overview is presented of the most recent Educational Technology Equipped Classroom (ETEC) developed at the State University of New York at Buffalo. The latest ETEC is the product of an extensive development procedure with input from faculty. The first three classrooms renovated to incorporate educational technology at the university were referred to as Media Equipped Classrooms. Building on the advantages of these, an ETEC was prepared to support the curriculum in the School of Management. Voice and data lines were an integral part of this classroom, but shortcomings in the teaching station became apparent. Planning a second ETEC classroom provided an opportunity to alter the teaching station and to make appropriate improvements where feasible. Faculty input was obtained through questionnaires and meetings. Significant changes were made in the design of the teaching station and in the electronic circuitry and signal processing. Access and security were also improved. The new classroom has been in use one semester and is being favorably received. Recommendations are being developed for additional ETEC software. An appendix contains 15 drawings and exhibits illustrating classroom features. (SLD)
