Technology Education for Elementary School Teachers.
Pedras, Melvin J.; Braukmann, Jim
The changing nature of educational technology in our society provides elementary school teachers and other educators with numerous challenges and problems for the elementary school curriculum. One such challenge is to teach students how to solve problems and utilize the general education they acquire to arrive at realistic solutions. Elementary students must be taught to make informed decisions about technology, its uses, and its impact on society. To that end, many classroom teachers are beginning to include hands-on class activities utilizing microcomputers to reinforce problem solving skills. It is particularly important that elementary students become technologically literate so that they may advance in the society of the 21st century. (21 references) (DB)
