Otrel-Cass, Kathrin; Khoo, Elaine; Cowie, Bronwen – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2012
In New Zealand and internationally claims are being made about the potential for information and communication technologies (ICTs) to transform teaching and learning. However, the theoretical underpinnings explaining the complex interplay between the content, pedagogy and technology a teacher needs to consider must be expanded. This article…

Stoddard, Jeremy – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2009
In the current state of social studies education, field trips are being cut from many schools' curriculum. While not a true substitution, today's technologies provide some opportunities through virtual field trips (VFTs) to simulate these experiences, engage students in knowledge production and disciplined inquiry, and have interactions with the…

Reins, Kevin – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2007
The purpose of this study was to investigate effective uses of digital ink technology in an elementary mathematics methods course. A survey methodology was used in the study to examine the participants' perceptions toward this technology for teaching and learning. All of the items on the survey produced response means between 5.0 and 6.0, with a…

Bulgar, Sylvia – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2007
The use of videotaped episodes of elementary mathematics classrooms for professional development is not new. However, without appropriate support, preservice teachers may find it difficult to hone in on the underlying features of the targeted practices displayed in the swift-moving action of the classroom being observed. The focus in this study is…

Hoban, Garry F. – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2007
Slow motion animation ("slowmation") is a new teaching approach that uses a simple animation process to engage learners in creating their own comprehensive animations of science concepts. In this paper, preservice elementary teachers used slowmation, a form of stop-motion animation, to make models of science concepts and take digital…

Kervin, Kristy – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2007
In 2006, as a beginning teacher in a Western Sydney school, the author explored slow motion animation ("slowmation") as a strategy for teaching Year 4 students about equivalent fractions. She taught at this school five days a week, teaching Kindergarten, Year 4, and Year 5. Slowmation can be defined as a simplified version of claymation…

Valanides, Nicos; Angeli, Charoula – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2006
The purpose of this study was to examine the extent to which preservice elementary teachers were able to construct viable scientific models with a computer-modeling tool, namely Model-It, and design a science lesson with models. The results of the study showed that (a) Model-It, through its scaffolds (i.e., Plan, Build, and Test modes), enabled…
