TACCOL: Technology Advancing a Continuous Community of Learners.
Carbone, R. Elaine
The TACCOL project (Technology Advancing A Continuous Community of Learners) at Clarion University of Pennsylvania involves a collaboration between the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Education and Human Services. The purpose of TACCOL is to infuse technology into teacher preparation by integrating technology with an interdisciplinary approach to teaching science and mathematics. TACCOL involves three distinct populations: (1) university faculty; (2) inservice mathematics and science teachers; and (3) preservice mathematics and science teachers. The basic technologies incorporated into the project are: (1) laptop computers; (2) graphing calculators (TI-73 for elementary participants and TI-89 for secondary participants); (3) Calculator Based Rangers (CBRs); and (4) Calculator Based Laboratories (CBLs) with multiple probes. The constructivist philosophy of engaging learners with hands-on activity based projects is emphasized in the implementation of the workshops for all three populations. (Contains 11 references.)
