Using Technology to Teach Content in a Student Teaching Experience (and as a First Year Teacher)
Lemon, Cheryl
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v5 n1 p73-76 2005
This article describes how Cheryl Lemon, a biology teacher at Gateway Regional High School, integrated technology into appropriate curricular contexts during her field experiences as a preservice teacher. She used Web-based simulations, a projection screen, an interactive white board, and Flash-based interactivity in conjunction with direct (highly organized, teacher-led) instruction and coaching (structured questioning techniques). She was able to successfully use technology in two very different ability level classes of ninth-grade students--Honors Biology and Applied Biology, which is a general education course designed for students who have difficulty learning in academic settings. The honors students were able to explore abstract concepts with the assistance of Web-based simulations and other technological devices, and the Applied Biology students used a variety of technologies to better understand biological concepts and processes.
