9780132393959: Meaningful Learning with Technology (3rd Edition)

 Grounded in constructivist teachings, this book will help teachers demonstrate ways that technology can be used to engage and support meaningful learning.  Much different than the last edition, the 3rd edition of this popular text is now organized around learning processes that engage and support different learning activities such as investigating, exploring, writing, modeling, community buildiing, communicating, designing, visualizing, and assessing. Rather than the reader learning how to use specific technologies this book demonstrates for the reader how learners can use different technologies for meaningful learning.   PreK-12 preservice & Inservice teachers

From the Back Cover:

Learn how teachers can use different technologies to engage and support meaningful student learning. Meaningful Learning with Technology, Fourth Edition, grounded in constructivist teaching, is organized around learning processes such as inquiring, experimenting, writing, modeling, community building, communicating, designing, visualizing, and assessing. Numerous examples from teachers in K-12 classrooms, offer a clear understanding of how technology can be used with all students across grade levels.

 

New to the Fourth Edition:

A Focus on 21st Century Classroom Instruction

     Gain an understanding of major educational technology and learning standards

        through the review and discussion of three alternative conceptions and standards

        for meaningful learning: ISTE NETS, 21st Century Skills, and Technological

        Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK).

     See practical examples of how various types of learning activities can align

        with NETS and 21st Century Skills in every chapter.

     Identify critical issues involved with information literacy and learn effective

        ways to provide support through an expanded section on information literacy

        skills.

     See how the most current technologies can enable teaching and learning

        through a strong focus on social educational networking and Web 2.0 tools

        for learning and collaboration.

 

A Focus on Practical Technology Application

        Assessing Characteristics of Meaningful Learning rubrics provide teachers

          with practical tools they need to begin analyzing and assessing the quality of

          their teaching.

       Examples given to support the learning technologies described in the text

        have been updated to feature more primary grade elementary students’

        meaningful learning with technology.

     An increased emphasis on high quality, practical application of technologies

        that many teachers currently have available and use for instruction, such as

        interactive whiteboards, PowerPoint, and more, offers readers ideas that can

        be directly applied in the classroom.
