Using Computer Technology in Teaching.
Parsons, Jim; Beauchamp, Larry
This document discusses the impact of educational technologies in higher education classrooms. It offers suggestions about using technology more effectively in the classroom, and suggests ways to improve teaching through the use of technology. Teachers can develop support systems for their efforts to implement technology, and can change classroom and personal practices that will enhance their effectiveness through the use of technology. Some of what technology promises is feasible, and teachers can use these technologies creatively. Computers can help students and teachers in practical ways; however, attention must be paid to the real needs of teachers and students. This paper encourages teachers to set up their classrooms in ways that will help their teaching and make their classroom lives more efficient and effective. Specific recommendations for doing so are offered. (HB)
