Technology Levels and Teaching American Government.
Thomson, J. Michael
This paper reviews technology usage in four different methods of teaching U.S. government. The paper reviews effective technology with traditional synchronous lecture; reviews teaching U.S. government using a smart classroom with live Internet feeds; explores full video capability and use of PowerPoint software; examines Web-enhanced U.S. government using the Blackboard course management software that enhances the regular synchronous lectures; and discusses asynchronous Internet versions of U.S. government, including tele-Web versions and a pure Internet U.S. government. For each level of technology, the paper discusses advantages and disadvantages of using technology, gives tips for effective use, and evaluates what is on the horizon in teaching technology. The paper provides fundamental tips, based on 25+ years of teaching and experience involving undergraduate and graduate political science courses. (Author/BT)
