Improving the Integration of Technology into the Sixth-Grade Curriculum in a Middle School.
Fine, Linda
This practicum was designed to increase the integration of technology into the sixth-grade curriculum and to eliminate technology as a separate subject in an urban middle school setting. The subject of technology was integrated into the curriculum of the remaining academic subjects, instead of being added onto the curriculum. Site-based teacher training workshops were conducted. The classroom teachers were then better able to utilize the computer lab to make technology an integral part of their classroom activities. The teachers incorporated technology into their subject areas for student assignments and projects. Appended are teacher and student questionnaires that were used to evaluate before and after performance of both students and teachers relative to the incorporation of technology. Analysis of the questionnaires and performance-based assessment rubrics indicated that there was a substantial increase in the use of computer technology by both students and teachers. There was also an increase in the integration of technology into their subject areas by the teachers. (Contains 35 references and 19 appendices.) (Author/MES)
