Petrina, Stephen
Information Science Publishing
Because of the nature of their subject, technology teachers have found ways to make learning active and exciting, often through new activities and projects that have real-world relevance. As technology fields grow, the success of technology teachers is tied in with innovation rather than the accomplishments of the past. This book provides a comprehensive, critical approach to meeting the new challenges of technology in the classroom. It gathers together research on technology methods, principles, and content, and acts as a reference source for proven and innovative methods. "Advanced Teaching Methods for the Technology Classroom" presents an introduction to teaching educational technology, design, and engineering. It also contains strategies for innovation by examining the what, why, and how of technology education. Chapters include: (1) Analyzing and Designing Technology-Based Instruction; (2) Organizing Knowledge for Instruction; (3) Feelings, Values, Ethics and Skills; (4) Instructional Methods and Learning Styles; (5) Creativity and Ingenuity, Design, and Problem Solving; (6) Learning Theory, Technology and Practice; (7) Justifying Technology Studies; (8) Technology Content, Process, and Standards; (9) Curriculum and Instruction Design; (10) Assessment and Evaluation; and (11) Classroom Management, Facilities Design and Safety.
