Teaching Technology Longitudinally to Virtual Children
Matthews, Lynley
Teaching Science, v56 n4 p43-44 Dec 2010
Children of Generation Y are entering our schooling system. These children have always known instant communication and the internet. They possess basic skills in using technology, but they still need to develop a deeper understanding of technology. Teaching longitudinally will increase the learner's confidence and develop a deeper understanding. This sequence of activities can be applied to a range of stages and set at a level comfortable for students. Many learning events in traditional curriculums tend to teach technology as an add-on to a learning activity. Technology teaching is disjointed, or set as a singular, computer-based learning experience rather than increasing student skills over time. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
