Integrating Preparation and Practice through a Technology-Based Approach to Portfolios for Professional Development Using IBM Technology.
Holt, Dennis; And Others
Lone Star 2000 is a collaborative project among the Duval County Public Schools in Jacksonville (Florida), the College of Education and Human Services at the University of North Florida, and the International Business Machines (IBM) Corporation. Primary goals of the project include: making educational technologies available to K-8 students and educating these students using educational technologies and documenting their work through electronic portfolios; preparing elementary school and middle school preservice teachers in new approaches to teaching and learning with educational technologies; and strengthening the link between partner school participants. This paper details the process used to carry out the goals of the Lone Star 2000 project and the use of traditional and nontraditional assessment methods to evaluate progress toward the goals. Steps in the process are: (1) exposure to classroom, curriculum-based technologies; (2) training in the operation of IBM hardware and software; (3) application of technology use in the classroom; (4) integration of technology with existing classroom curriculum materials by the teaching intern; and (5) infusion of technology into classroom teaching and learning when the classroom teacher continues to incorporate technology into daily teaching and learning activities.
