Developing Innovative Information Technology Projects.
Hannaford, Marion
As several initiatives relating to integrating the use of information technologies (IT) were started in Prince Edward Island, the Faculty of Education at the University of Prince Edward Island saw a unique opportunity where the merging of some of the initiatives and collaboration among the participants might be more productive and advance the initiatives with a research basis. Thus, a project to facilitate a partnership among teacher educators, pre-service teachers, classroom teachers, teacher-librarians, and Department of Education consultants was started. This paper focuses on the conceptual issues associated with the development of integrated IT projects. These issues include: learning computer skills contextually; examining the changing role of the teacher; identifying a new continuum for integrating IT into the learning environment; and designing projects from the curriculum to the technology. Examples from the mathematics, language arts, social studies and school library programs where IT projects were implemented are used to support and illustrate these points. Contains 19 references.
