Interactive Learning Exhibits: Designs for Building Teacher and Student Capacity.
Burge, Kimberly Bisbee; Marshall, Sue; Beck, Rob
The planning, design, production and presentation of interactive learning exhibits (ILEs) by students in elementary and secondary teaching credential programs provided authentic learning experiences in the integration of computers in teaching and learning settings. This paper includes a rationale and brief overview of the theoretical underpinnings of this approach to technology training, a description of the program, some initial findings, and reflections on successes and challenges. To date this ongoing research and development effort has revealed that engagement in the instructional design and enactment of an ILE can be a rich context for preservice teachers' increased learning about planning, pedagogy, content standards, and assessment in the context of a multimedia learning environment. This work has implications for the preparation of teachers to use computers in classrooms. (Author)
