9780131596115: Transforming Learning with New Technologies

Interactive, organized by learning goals for teachers and students, and responsive to ISTE standards, New Teachers/New Technologies: Engaging Students, Teaching Content, Transforming Learning shows readers how to integrate computers, Internet-based technologies, and emerging Web 2.0 tools to transform teaching and learning in K-12 schools.

 

This practical text introduces students to the multiple ways that technology can create highly interactive, inquiry-based teaching and learning experiences. It features more than 70 free (or low-cost), easy-to-use computer and Internet technologies that teachers can integrate in every aspect of their professional work-classroom instruction—lesson planning, student assessment, curriculum development, academic research, and professional networking—as well as Technology Transformation Lesson Plans, which show teachers how to integrate technology into classroom lessons while expanding and extending learning goals in all subject areas. The text’s interactive learning experiences for readers offer thought-provoking questions, lesson plan templates, and links to MyEducationLab, Pearson’s premiere online resource with video, tutorials, podcasts, rubrics and checklists, web links and web activities, practice tests, and activities to build teaching skills and dispositions.

  • Tech Tools features explore high quality, tested, easy-to-use digital tools and Web-based resources that will enhance teachers’ work, both instructionally and professionally.
  • MyEducationKit marginal annotations point to assignments built around video, video tutorials, podcasts, rubrics and checklists, web activities, and chapter study plans.
  • Your Judgment Matters features encourage readers to stop and consider how to respond to issues or questions under discussion.
  • Activities for Your Teacher Portfolio questions and exercises include topics for individual reflection, group dialogue, and personal writing that encourage readers to create written and visual products that may be added to an ongoing portfolio of their work as teachers.

WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING:

 

“I love the way that best teaching practices are modeled by the design of the chapters...learning goals, focus questions, reflection.  [The text] actually shows/demonstrates how to effectively teach.”

–Ashley Navarro, Seminole Community College

 

“I would like to adopt this textbook...Why?–the focus is on Teachers and Technology–not just another computer science textbook...The Technology Transformation Lesson Plans beginning in Chapter 5 are very valuable for me as a teacher to properly explain how to ‘successfully connect technology and instruction.’  These are also great examples of lesson plans to have the students follow when creating their individual lesson plans.

 

–Barbara Jones, Golden West College
