No Teacher Left behind: How to Teach with Technology
Efaw, Jamie
EDUCAUSE Quarterly, v28 n4 p26-32 2005
With the infusion of technology into all aspects of daily life, students are becoming more and more adept at using technology as an educational resource. Many faculty, however, are not keeping pace with their students. Additionally, faculty feel increasingly unprepared to integrate technology into the classroom. Many institutions of higher learner now offer technology courses to faculty to bridge this gap, helping them master the intricacies of PowerPoint or learning to post materials in a course management system. These courses help to an extent, but classes in using technology do not prepare faculty to effectively incorporate technology into their teaching. The United States Military Academy at West Point has had the luxury of operating in a technology-rich, standardized environment since the mid-1980s. Nevertheless, the faculty development issue is probably the most challenging and one that the academy's Department of Behavioral Sciences and Leadership has addressed during the past three years. This article provides an overview of a three-phase program that, when implemented, will assist both veteran and novice instructors in incorporating available technology into the classroom to achieve a richer educational experience for students. This article highlights the practical steps that nearly any department can adopt (or adapt) to get a program running at its own institution. (Contains 23 endnotes.)
