Fine, Carole; Tinzmann, Margaret Baker; Anderson, Mary; Anderson, Whit; Pitlik, Deborah
This research-based professional development course is designed by the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory to offer participants ways to connect technology with teaching and learning, and to examine ways to apply technology innovations to instruction and to improving teaching and learning. In the six, 2-hour sessions, participants (who should have previous experience using the Internet and other computer-related technologies) will work with their facilitators to: (1) explore the concept of engaged learning and the role technology plays in instruction; (2) use a planning framework to analyze and design technology-supported units and lessons that engage students;(3) build and collect a portfolio of lesson ideas; (4) reflect on current practice, refine existing lessons, and design new lessons and units; (5) analyze video, print, and online instructional examples; (6) examine instructional resources available on the Internet and the World Wide Web; (7) participate in collegial networks and a listserv; and (8) share ideas and provide collegial feedback. The "Facilitator's Guide" includes comprehensive notes on the course, professional development, and session-by-session expectations; optional tips to support facilitation; resources and references; and suggested syllabi and planning documents. The "Participant's Manual" contains materials to supplement each segment of the course and is aligned with the Facilitator's Guide. The first videotape, "Learning With Technology," provides an overview of the course. Five "Captured Wisdom" videotapes cover grade levels K-3 (1 videotape), 4-8 (3 videotapes), and 9-12 (1 videotape). The last videotape "The Technology Corner" provides a glimpse into eight technology subjects that may be useful to teachers: modems, World Wide Web, scanners, browse basics, e-mail basics, CU-SeeMe, CD-ROMS, and the Internet.
