Trickle Down Technology: A Distance Education Approach to Professional Development.
The Trickle Down Technology Project offered the impetus needed to change the way both K-12 and university educators capitalize on technology in the classroom. The project had three key components: the modeling of technology in the university classroom; online technology workshops; and interactive communication among inservice and preservice teachers. Each of these components is discussed in this paper. As college faculty grew more comfortable with technology, they began to integrate computers into their classes, while helping K-12 teachers do the same. Concurrently, faculty modeled technology application as a part of the curriculum and helped their students develop lesson plans for K-12 classrooms. The teachers then implemented these lessons and provided online feedback to the preservice teachers. (MES)
