Category Archives: 2.4 Integrated Technologies

“Integrated technologies are ways to produce and deliver materials which encompass several forms of media under the control of a computer” (Seels & Richey, 1994, p. 40). Integrated technologies are typically hypermedia environments which allow for: (a) various levels of learner control, (b) high levels of interactivity, and (c) the creation of integrated audio, video, and graphic environments. Examples include hypermedia authoring and telecommunications tools such as electronic mail and the World Wide
Web.

Technology Use Plan Presentation

I learned so much this year in EDTECH 501.  This project just pulled everything together.  I have a great interest in incorporating technology into the classroom and am looking for ways to do so.  As an online teacher, I have to use technology but I have loved learning all the different web tools that are out there to use and am going to implement some of those into my classes.
Creating the technology use plan was a great way to take everything I learned this year about technology and the push for it in the classroom, not only at the district or state level but also on the national level.  One of the biggest changes I have felt within myself, is the way I feel towards Superintendent Luna’s new laws and the reasons behind them.
Creating a plan and trying to correctly work on implementing it was much harder than I expected but I see the real need for these plans. I believe that if school districts can correctly use these plans to help the schools, not only get technology but the software and get the teachers on board to use the technology in a way that helps the students, than more students will succeed and be better prepared to face the new, ever-changing technological world.

School Evaluation Summary

As  the youngest teacher at this school, I am having a hard time communicating the need for more technology in the classroom.  It seems the more I use it or push for it, the more the other teachers avoid me or think less of me.  I have learned that the students actually learn more and better using technologies then just from a book and writing a paper.  I get frustrated when the other teachers look down on me for trying new things.

As the “Students Come First” laws begin to really take affect, I believe that the impact will be for the better.  Teachers will be held to a higher standard and students will be able to get the technologies needed to succeed in such a technological world.

This evaluation helped me take a closer look at the ACET standards and where all this fits in.  This covers Standard 1.3, 2.3, 2.4, 3.3, 3.4, 4.4, and 5.3, 5.4.  I fell that most of the standards are covered in some way depending on how you look at the survey and summary.
