Technology in the Classroom: A Collection of Articles.
King, Tom, Ed.
This collection of articles address three themes: the growing research supporting the belief that technology in education makes a difference for student learning; innovative ways to use technology in teaching; and firsthand accounts of schools that have successfully implemented technology in their classrooms. Through effective use, educators can implement technology in ways that transform classroom learning activities, enhance idea development and individual expression, promote peer collaboration and problem solving, and foster students' unique learning styles. The collection includes the following articles: "Achieving Technological Equity and Equal Access to the Learning Tools of the 21st Century" (Curman L. Gaines, Willie Johnson, and D. Thomas King); "Linking Students to the Infosphere" (Boris Berenfeld); "Technologies as Tools for Transforming Learning Environments" (Michael Hopkins); "Can Integrated Instructional Technology Transform the Classroom?" (Lani M. Van Dusen and Blaine R. Worthen); "Communication through Multimedia in an Elementary Classroom" (Elizabeth M. Riddle); "Virtual Reality and Multiple Intelligences: Potentials for Higher Education" (Hilary McLellan); "Crossroads to the World" (Dawn L. Morden); "Engaging Students in a Knowledge Society" (Marlene Scardamalia and Carl Bereiter); "The Saturn School of Tomorrow" (David A. Bennett and D. Thomas King); and "It's Elementary! Internet in a K-5 School" (Susan W. Hixson). Contains an index. (Author/SWC)
