TITAN: Transforming Instruction through Technology and Networking.
Fitzpatrick, Corine; Nicholson, Karen; Mucciardi, Michael; Musal, Richard
This paper describes an effort by Manhattan College, New York, and its consortium of partners (a local school district, the Archdiocese of New York, Apple Computer, and Educational Video Conferencing) to ensure the availability of technology-proficient educators in the area's inner city schools, where the digital divide is most prominent. A TITAN (Transforming Instruction through Technology and Networking) technology grant is facilitating this effort to educate teachers for New York's inner city schools. Goals include curriculum redesign, faculty development, infrastructure development (including human resources), and dissemination. This paper focuses on: (1) curriculum redesign teams, which revised undergraduate and graduate courses to reflect technology infusion as a teaching and learning tool, developed individual technology skills, and modeled technology use in K-12 settings; (2) faculty development, which links with curriculum development; and (3) the technology support team, which is made up of students from the School of Education graduate and undergraduate programs and from the Schools of Science, Engineering, and Business. The appendix presents data on Manhattan College faculty members' technology skills and attitudes about technology, survey instruments, information on TITAN grant workshops, a general preparation performance profile, and available TITAN resources.
