Teacher In-Service Training and the Incorporation of Technology into Teaching.
Schnackenberg, Heidi L.
This paper describes the teacher inservice training that was developed as the result of a technology needs assessment at two elementary schools in Quebec. The workshop was developed as an initial vehicle for enabling teachers to incorporate technology into their teaching. The six days of the workshop are sketched, and the materials used in the workshop are summarized. Workshop objectives are for the participants to be able to: (1) analyze an existing lesson plan to verify that it is instructionally sound, and modify it when necessary ; (2) determine if an existing traditional lesson plan is suitable for the incorporation of Internet resources; (3) identify types of Internet resources available and relevant for the elementary classroom; (4) locate World Wide Web resources that can be incorporated into lesson plans to make them technology lesson plans; (5) state ways of modifying current classroom management techniques to adapt to technology lessons; (6) successfully implement a lesson plan incorporating technology; (7) utilize methods of limiting student access to the Internet; (8) apply appropriate consequences to students who misuse the Internet; and (9) create a long range plan for using technology in the classroom. The field testing of the workshop and its implications are also discussed. (DLS)
