About

Overview

Thoroughly updated and streamlined for easier use, TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION FOR MEANINGFUL CLASSROOM USE: A STANDARDS-BASED APPROACH, Second Edition, equips future teachers with the knowledge, creative and critical thinking skills, and confidence they need to become "self-directed learners" who can successfully navigate the constantly changing environment of technology integration in the classroom. Using the principles of self-directed learning as its foundation, the text aims to help future teachers learn to evaluate and reflect on professional practice to make informed decisions regarding the use of technology in support of student learning. The first educational technology text organized around the 2008 National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T) developed by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), this standards-based approach provides the framework for developing, modeling, and teaching the skills and knowledge necessary for integrating technology in authentic teaching and learning. Material previously in Part II now appears in a briefer end-of-book supplement that provides examples of technology integration in practice within specific content areas, guided by the national standards that apply to each content domain. Available with InfoTrac® Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

Features and Benefits

  • Each chapter is fully integrated with the 2008 National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T) developed by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). The first 12 chapters cover aspects of integrating technology across K-12 classrooms in general, and are followed by a supplement devoted to specific subject areas.
  • Each chapter includes a series of self-directed learning activities, asking students to reflect on what they know, identify what they need to know, locate resources to obtain additional information, evaluate the reliability, and evaluate the extent to which the technology meets their learning needs.
  • Innovative features include sample lesson plans that illustrate ideas in action; Apply to Practice boxes (self-directed learning activities); and Game Plan boxes featuring four steps for building knowledge of educational technology (Set Goals, Take Action, Monitor, and Evaluate and Extend).
  • Other features include Stories from Practice, which highlight real-life case studies, anecdotes, interviews, and vignettes from teachers using technology in content areas; and Standards-based, end-of-chapter Portfolio Assessments that help pre-service teachers document progress toward meeting ISTE standards presented at the beginning of the chapter.
