Best Case Practices of Technology at Eastern New Mexico University.
DeWitt, Calvin W.; Nutter, Scott; Ayala, Mary; Hall, Debra
This paper presents examples of best case practices of technology use in classes at Eastern New Mexico University (ENMU). The examples include successful and not-so-successful applications, with insights on the overall process of incorporating technology into the classroom. The paper focuses on the authors' experience in languages, business, and science. The pedagogical and epistemological impact that technology has made in courses in these areas is discussed. Topics covered include: (1) an overview of ENMU's approach to utilizing technology; (2) computer facilities and services currently available on campus; (3) current challenges, including the fact that merely providing faculty with technology and know-how does not necessarily lead to the incorporation of technology in the classroom throughout campus, and the need for dissemination of examples of appropriate uses of technology; (4) examples and experiences, including approaches to technology utilization that exemplify a wide variety of strategies; (5) extending technology used in Modern Languages to other fields, including special language-learning software, pronunciation programs, World Wide Web-based assignments, videos, presentation software, and incorporating meaningful graphic images into classroom presentations and assignments; (6) business school applications and experience, including presentation graphics and interactive television (ITV); (7) simulations in science; and (8) ITV in distance education.
