The Integrated Technology Classroom: Building Self-Reliant Learners.
Riedl, Joan
This book describes a teaching/learning design that allows the teacher to engage in one-on-one teaching and learning through educational technology in a classroom with 25 to 30 students. When used appropriately, educational technology can help the teacher create a caring and creative community of learners. The learning design in this guide combines three basic ingredients for different learning applications: (1) small-group, work stations (learning stations); (2) daily, small-group teacher-facilitated discussions; and (3) educational technology, including computers, laser disk players, and camcorders. The workstation is the defining feature of this innovative model. The approach emphasizes the correlation between high-tech and high-touch in the learning design. Step-by-step, the guide takes the teacher through the transition from traditional to technology-based classrooms and from an authoritarian teaching model to a more collaborative one. Detailed explanations, sample plans, classroom examples, and a real understanding of teacher concerns support the approach. Thirty-seven figures illustrate the discussion. (SLD)
