Power Pedagogy: Integrating Technology in the Classroom.
Juliano, Benjoe A.
Connectivity on the Internet through the use of World Wide Web browsers is becoming commonplace in the classroom, at home, and in the office. The term, "power pedagogy" refers to any set of instructional methods designed to increase faculty productivity and to accommodate more students with existing facilities. This paper examines the use of the Web to supplement traditional instruction, focusing on use of the Web as an intranet teaching tool that establishes an extension of the regular classroom. At Coastal Carolina University (CCU) in South Carolina, new forms of technology-based curriculum delivery and student learning are being considered. Individuals with University computing accounts can access Usenet newsgroups through a public news server. Faculty can set up e-mail mailing lists to broadcast messages to all students registered in specific classes, majors, departments, or academic organizations. E-mail is also used for the submission and critique of assignments and similar work. Course-specific Web pages are used to facilitate posting of grades, distribution of announcements and class notes/handouts, course policies and course syllabi, and other similar material. Internet-based lab work is conducted by students and faculty in some departments of the School of Science. Advantages and disadvantages of technology-based instruction are discussed.
