Mills, Leila A.; Knezek, Gerald A.; Wakefield, Jenny S.
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age (CELDA) (Fort Worth, TX, Oct 22-24, 2013)
This research paper explores middle school student attitudes towards learning with technology and proposes a design-based approach to formulating instruction that includes innovative classroom technology use with computers and communications technologies placed in the hands of students. The intent of this research is to advance practice and theory on student-centered use of information and communications technology (ICT), going beyond the implementation of school technologies for delivery of lessons and data processing. The focus of the recommended design-based approach is teaching and learning that provides opportunities for student-driven ICT use in the classroom, including transmedia navigation for classroom activities that encourage students to think, interact with instructional content, and engage in transformative communications.
