Technology Pedagogy: Software Tools for Teaching and Learning
Berry, James; Staub, Nancy
AASA Journal of Scholarship & Practice, v8 n1 p24-33 Spr 2011
Adoption of technology for teaching and learning is not as significant as the adoption and use of software that is used as a pedagogical extension of a teacher's approach to classroom instruction. It is the dynamic and integrated use of software that extends the pedagogical role of the teacher beyond the traditional lecture and discussion format. Students were motivated to use dynamic and engaging software to enhance the learning experience. Multimedia, Internet connectivity, dynamic software, networking and the simple issue of organizing for learning made adoption of laptop computers a valuable tool for enhancing teaching and learning in an eighth grade pilot project in a Midwestern school district. Teachers and students recognized the shift toward a student-centered constructivist approach to learning.
