Technology for Teachers. 6th Edition.
Volker, Roger; Simonson, Michael
This book helps teachers learn how to use and make educational media, covering traditional and new media such as computer laboratories, authentic assessment, theory bases, and hypermedia. Chapter topics progress from simple to complex. Each chapter includes clearly stated behavioral objectives that provide a study guide for students and can serve as a basis for assessment by the teacher. Ideas for making and using media are kept together so that students can understand the relevance of learning how to make media for teaching. New features for this 6th edition include expanded theory bases and technological trends; computer coverage in each chapter; stand-alone production instructions; pedagogical trends; and clear text design and layout.
