Teaching Abilities In Preservice Teacher Self-Ratings And Comparable Instructor Ratings, Feng Liu Jan 2004

Teaching Abilities In Preservice Teacher Self-Ratings And Comparable Instructor Ratings, Feng Liu

The Corinthian

The purpose of this study was to investigate the correlations between preservice teachers' self-ratings of their technology skills and their self-ratings of other teaching skills. The data collected using questionnaires with a four-point Likert Scale were examined. Bivariate correlations were used comparing each competency with the technology competency. The correlation between 232 preservice teachers' self-ratings and their technology skills had statistical significance but were very low (r = .14 tor=. 20; the statistical significance level: .05). The skill rating that was most highly correlated to their technology skill was their ability to evaluate and find good teaching materials and resources (r ...


Teachers Integrating Technology: Case Studies, Dawn Basinger Dec 2003

Teachers Integrating Technology: Case Studies, Dawn Basinger

Essays in Education

To understand better the process by which P-12 teachers come to integrate technology into their instructional practices, the researcher undertook a yearlong investigation into technology use at two different school sites in northern Louisiana. Teachers’ stages of concern about technology, levels of technology use, perceptions about coursework impact on technology use and integration, and practices and perceptions about teaching and learning with technology were analyzed. Although all teachers perceived the coursework to be effective in facilitating their utilization and integration of technology, they perceived no single best way to integrate technology. Each teacher identified, designed and developed, and implemented his ...


Teaching In The Information Age: Leadership Aspects Of Integrated Learning With Technology In Democratic Environments, Patrick Mendis Apr 2003

Teaching In The Information Age: Leadership Aspects Of Integrated Learning With Technology In Democratic Environments, Patrick Mendis

Academic Leadership: The Online Journal

Teaching as a collaborative enterprise can further be enhanced by the use of integrated learning methods and the infusion of technology. Teacher as a leader must then work as a catalyst to facilitate this learning process. A creation of democratic environment has become increasingly easier with the use of the technology. Yet, the right attitude in leadership and the adaptive challenge are as equally important as the infusion of technology into classroom learning and teaching. Teacher is still the noble master and technology is the revolutionary servant in a more democratic world.


Commentary: Art Education And New Technology: Are You Ready?, Susan Witwicki Jan 2003

Commentary: Art Education And New Technology: Are You Ready?, Susan Witwicki

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

As an Art education major, I was somewhat daunted by a recent job offer requiring me to teach in the Career and Technology Studies department. As a recovering technophobe and lover of scissors and paste, I was cautious of this ‘Brave New World’ of computers. I perceived post-millennial teens to be cyber savvy know-it-alls, largely due to the way in which they were portrayed in the media. As well, if the ads were true, teens weren’t the only ones riding the new technological wave; Cisco Systems 1999 television campaign presented a global Utopia of citizens united through surfing the ...


Teaching Critical Practice For Future Technologies, Leslie Sharpe Jan 2003

Teaching Critical Practice For Future Technologies, Leslie Sharpe

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

What are the issues when faculty wishes to teach art students critical or alternative practices with newer technologies not yet widely available to the public? Can one teach alternative practices that consider social or personal contexts when the technologies are not yet publicly available? What other issues are involved when teaching art students to do fine art with such technologies, and when not training artists to do commercial work for the communications industry or mainstream media? What does it mean for the art students who wants to use these technologies for fine art to have ideas for their use, but ...


Teachers' Perceived Barriers To Using Computers And The Internet For Instruction, Lisa M. Thompson Jan 2003

Teachers' Perceived Barriers To Using Computers And The Internet For Instruction, Lisa M. Thompson

The Corinthian

The purpose of this study was to identify the three most frequently reported barriers to using computers and the Internet for instruction. This descriptive, survey study used a 17-item survey to gauge the responses of 15 High School InTech educators at Macon State College in Macon, Georgia. The three barriers most frequently reported, among the "Moderate barrier" and "Great barrier" rankings, were "not enough computers"; "outdated, incompatible, or unreliable computers"; and "lack of release time for teachers to learn, practice, or plan ways to use computers or the Internet." These perceived barriers must be addressed in order to increase the ...


It’S Time To Upgrade: Tests And Administration Procedures For The New Millennium, Michael Russell Apr 2002

It’S Time To Upgrade: Tests And Administration Procedures For The New Millennium, Michael Russell

Essays in Education

Increasing use of computers in schools has led to a mis-alignment between the way some students develop skill and knowledge and how they are tested. This paper reviews past research that demonstrates that paper-based tests that require students to produce written responses underestimate the achievement of students who are accustomed to writing on computer. The paper then explores how learning that occurs through other instructional uses of computers is not adequately captured by current testing practices. The paper argues that new approaches should be explored to better measure student learning.


Technology Attitudes In The Classroom, Sherry A. Fleming Jan 2002

Technology Attitudes In The Classroom, Sherry A. Fleming

The Corinthian

The purpose of this study was to examine student attitudes toward technology in the economics classroom in a magnet high school in Augusta, Georgia over a period of a semester. A survey was used to measure attitudes towards computer use, any changes at the end of the semester, and any differences by gender. Structured observations were notated in a teacher log once a week to note any differences in aggressiveness towards computer use by gender. The results indicate that although males scored higher on attitude surveys, there were no significant differences between gender.


The Widening Gyre: Images As Central To The Global Village, Mark Smith Dec 2000

The Widening Gyre: Images As Central To The Global Village, Mark Smith

The Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning

The image is emerging as the lingua franca of technological culture, both resurrecting characteristics of pre-literate classicism and consolidating the global community.


Portrait Of The Computer Artist: Between Worlds, Mia Johnson Jan 1996

Portrait Of The Computer Artist: Between Worlds, Mia Johnson

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

As a result of ignorance and misconceptions about the nature of computer artwork, the computer artist is misunderstood by practitioners in fine art, art education, science, and industry. This paper enters the world of the computer artist to look at some of the factors which contribute to misperceptions. It examines social issues ranging from the design and use of hardware and software to access issues, and problems with concrete and electronic exhibition venues. It also describes communication barriers in education and the media.


Art Education And Technology: These Are The Days Of Miracles And Wonder, Paul Duncum Jan 1996

Art Education And Technology: These Are The Days Of Miracles And Wonder, Paul Duncum

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This paper examines the impact on human consciousness of the exponential proliferation of electronic images, and offers suggestions concerning how educators should respond. A postmodern critique includes the ideas of an inverted Kantian aesthetics which embraces the everyday, a dramatic compression of space and time, and personal disorientation. A further critique grounds these views of consciousness in new economic arrangements and the rapaciousness of capitalism. I argue that the only viable educational response to this new consciousness is a critical examination of mass media imagery. Basic components of media education in schools are signposts of an appropriate response.


Violence And Generation X: How The Right Is Managing The Moral Panic Through Television And Teen Films, Jan Jagodzinski Jan 1996

Violence And Generation X: How The Right Is Managing The Moral Panic Through Television And Teen Films, Jan Jagodzinski

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The continual "cultural wars" between "Generation X" ("baby busters" whose birth years begin with 1961, aged 11-35), and New Right "baby boomers" (whose birth years range. From 1946 to 1960), around the issue of violence as represented in the popular cultural forms of film and television provide critically concerned art educators with an opportune moment to examine how conservative rhetoric has made "moral panic" an object of current discourses. This highly-charged debate, now literally and symbolically represented by the censorship that "V-chip" technology provides, is explored in this essay from a seemingly non-populist position given the current tide against the ...


Technological Revolution And The Black Studies Curriculum: A Course Proposal, Abdul Alkalimat Sep 1995

Technological Revolution And The Black Studies Curriculum: A Course Proposal, Abdul Alkalimat

Trotter Review

A technological revolution is changing the world. The computer is fast becoming the universal tool in all aspects of work, production and communication, and innovations in bio-technology are fast transforming agriculture and health. The main impact of this technological revolution has been to restructure the economy, both the centers of accumulation as well as the labor process. It is also restructuring the methods by which people communicate, form and maintain communities. In general, the objective basis of social life is being fundamentally changed.

This essay proposes a basic course that not only focuses on the technological revolution, but should be ...

The Deep Creek School: Technology, Ecology And The Body As Pedagogical Alternatives In Art Education, Daniel L. Collins, Charles R. Garoian Jan 1994

The Deep Creek School: Technology, Ecology And The Body As Pedagogical Alternatives In Art Education, Daniel L. Collins, Charles R. Garoian

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The Deep Creek School is grappling with a cultural condition in which the line between actual experience and its simulation has become blurred as never before. Today’s students are conversant in the language of electronic media and consumer culture--but they encounter difficulties when trying to navigate the real crises in the health of their bodies and the global environment. There is a deep sense among many of the artists and educators that we speak with that art programs nationwide are not responding sufficiently to the dramatic changes occurring in the culture at large. The precedent of fitting programs to ...

Economic Changes From The Use Of Biotechnology In Production Agriculture, Loren W. Tauer Jan 1988

Economic Changes From The Use Of Biotechnology In Production Agriculture, Loren W. Tauer

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

The potential economic impact of biotechnology in production agriculture is discussed. There are challenges and difficulties in completing economic research when little production information is available on biotechnologies. I argue that little impact differences exist between cost-reducing versus output-increasing technological change. Rapid technological change results in low average returns in agriculture but continuous early innovators earn higher returns. Various plant and animal technologies are presented and discussed.
