Kennesaw State University Classroom Technology Initiative.
McHaney, Jane; Wallace, Deborah; Taylor, Beverley
The purpose of the Kennesaw State University (KSU) Coca Cola/Board of Regents Classroom Technology Initiative was to develop preservice and inservice teachers' expertise in educational technology such as computers, presentation software, and multimedia and to teach educators to apply those skills to content instruction. Project goals were to determine the types of technology currently being used in area middle and high-school classrooms, offer technical skills instruction to teachers and college faculty, apply the new skills to the integration of technology into instruction, and evaluate program impact. The project involved faculty from the professional teacher education unit at KSU, public school teachers from six area school systems, and middle and secondary school preservice teachers in KSU's Bagwell College of Education. The project included two phases. Phase 1 involved determining skill levels and types of technology available in middle and secondary classrooms, identifying faculty, and offering both hardware and software technical skills instruction to classroom teachers and college faculty. Phase 2 involved forming collaborative teams to implement the projects, implementing the projects, and providing additional skills training as needed. Projects were evaluated to learn more about the potential for technology integration to help middle-school, high-school, and college-level students. Three attachments, which comprise the bulk of the paper, contain project descriptions, the Technology Integration Survey, and the Technology Integration Survey results. (SM)
