Running Head: Instructional Technology (IT) Recommendations
Colloquium Journal Report
Simulations in Teaching: Special Education Multimedia PBL Cases. Gap between classroom and outside world activities. Developed simulations in problem based framework. Presented 2 separate modules based on her area of research:
PBL Instructional Approach:
This presentation displays how new technological innovations are used in classroom to foster various learning activities. His motivation was lectures in math and sciences, but it has application in many other learning / lecture settings.
How it works: Teacher and students writes on tablet PC or electronic whiteboard using Dyknow Vision software.
Pedagogy Examples: 1) Problem examples tried by students immediately; 2) Students can reply with examples
Recent interest in school reform. Discussed a new paradigm for education and training. Two types of change:
Only need systemic change when environment fundamentally changes. Toffler's three great waves of change: Agriculture, industrial and information revolution -> each brought paradigm shift in family, business and transportation. So, how has education changed in the information age.
Dramatic increase in online learning in higher education all across the world, including "blended" learning (roughly 2/3 of online classes are blended in US vs fully online). Seems to more support in public learning institutions. What is blended learning? Is it just face to face vs. online? Or are we overusing this term as almost all classes now blend some form of technology? Some see it as a combination of modalities / media in instruction, tasks and delivery. Sloan Definitions: Traditional 0% online; Web Facilitated 1-29% online; Blended/Hybrid 30-79% online; Online: 80% of content is online.
Advantages: Access, flexibility, convenience, increased learning, cost effective, effective pedagogy
Disadvantages: Time, procrastination, resistance, overwhelming, trying too much
Examples: Assessments/reviews online; follow up in communities of practice; reference material; office hours online; mentoring and coaching tool; access experts live online
Dr. Frick discussed his research interests, including:
Web Design Praxiology - How to design web based instruction. Beyond the tools to the process: Set of practices to create effective and efficient to design web sites. Practical Web Development includes:
Note: This video is getting quite "dated" as it was made in 2001 and some of the "statistics" and current state of technology has changed. Some of his "predictions" have already come true today - broadband, video on demand, BitTorrent).
Part 1: In this video from MIT, Bonnie Bracey argues for support for use of media in education. The presentation is primarily geared to k-12 education. Bracy proposes the following benefits of media and technology:
Bracey proposes that teaching and learning can be changed by creating "engaged learning" that allows teachers to explore and create a "learning landscape". She defines a "learning landscape" as a way in which children learn and explore that provides many forms of resources to learn. In order to create a learning landscape, teachers need access and support to learn the technology (how does it work?, how do we use it?). Construction of a learning landscape includes creation of the product, project, objective and assessment where the teacher is the guide. Bracey argues that such "transformational learning" will create a path to lifelong learning.
Finally, Bracey calls on stakeholders (the public, teachers and administrators) to consider new:
Part 2. Steven Lerman (Note: Could not access the "slides" referenced in the video?) -- Need to finish this section after Lori confirms whether slides available?
Audio often very weak and difficult to hear and at several points someone is talking over the recording? Topics discussed include:
Dr. Ted Frick - Orientation of IU Computing Environment - Week 2Dr. Ted Frick - Orientation of IU Computing Environment - Week 2Dr. Frick delivered an orientation of the IU computing environment. One of Dr. Frick's roles at IU is Director of web services for School of Education. He hightlighted the following areas during his presentation:
