Technology-Based Learning: A Handbook for Teachers and Technology Leaders. Revised Edition.
Ross, Tweed Wallis, Jr.; Bailey, Gerald D.
Selecting and using technology for the classroom is an enormous responsibility for teachers. This book helps educators of K-12 decide which of the many available technologies are right for them. It presents and develops five learning methods based on specific technological devices and practices. These methods include teacher-centered learning with technology; integrated learning systems; electronic collaborative learning; hyperlearning; and electronic learning simulations. Teachers learn how to choose the right method, how to incorporate it, and how it will affect student achievement. This handbook takes into account factors like budget, physical facilities, student reactions, expected payoffs, staff development, and individual instructional styles. A series of "tips, tricks, and traps" and a list of related resources for each method are designed help dispel teachers' fears of technology. The book also provides an adoption model for incorporating technology-based learning methods into the school program. Transparency masters, implementation checklists and flow charts, a glossary of terms, a vendor list, and an up-to-date bibliography are included. (Contains 296 references.) (AEF)
