Helping Teachers Increase the Use of Multimedia Instructional Technology into the Curriculum through Staff Development Workshops.
Garcia, Liliana P.
This report describes a staff development training using a multimedia instructional technology program designed to increase the integration of multimedia materials by teachers into their curriculum. The objectives were for the teachers in the targeted group to demonstrate an increased use of instructional technology by generating products using four out of eight skills in which they had been instructed and for 20% or more of the targeted group to attain more skills to operate and integrate various technological hardware and software programs. A target group of 14 teachers involved in regular education was established for the program. The 12-week program focused on staff development of computer-related technology so that as teachers gained expertise they would transfer their knowledge to their students. The program contained various activities and strategies using multimedia instructional technology for the improvement of these skills. Levels of success were measured by a pre- and post-teacher technology survey as well as products generated and recorded on a technology profile checklist. Appendices include tables showing the pre- and post-teacher technology skills survey and results in percentages, and a teacher technology portfolio checklist. (Author)
