Developed by a highly qualified author team, this new textbook is designed for an introduction to instructional technology course taken by education majors. The goals of the text and its companion web site are to enable faculty to teach the fundamentals of hardware and software, and more important, to educate their students about how technology can be integrated into instruction. Using the text and web site, students learn to apply knowledge from their content methods courses and learn how to incorporate technology to promote effective instruction.What sets this text apart is its teacher-tested model, The Technology and Learning Continuum Model (TLC), which bridges the gap between educational technology and instructional design. In use by Recesso for more than six years, the model grew out of a Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) grant and is being used currently in Georgia to meet the state-mandated requirement that all teachers complete a technology certification program by 2006. The model, however, is not state-specific.Using the 4-color model as a guide, students are able to move beyond awareness of instructional and assistive technology to advanced levels of technology integration. In a structured fashion, pre-service or in-service teachers learn how to align learning activities, objectives, instructional strategies, technology, and assessments to facilitate a progression of student learning. The results are learning units and learning activities where technology is integrated, not used as an add-on, and lesson plans that prospective or current teachers can take into the classroom and effectively use as a guide to instruction. Another important feature of this program is its close alignment with the prevailing technology standards. In these standards-driven times, showing explicitly how content ties to standards is critical.

About the Author:

Art Recesso received a Ph.D. in Education Administration and Policy Studies from the State University of New York, Albany. He is a former K-12 educator, having served in the role of Director of School-to-Work programs and Team Leader for integrating technology into leading, teaching and learning. Dr. Recesso's research centers on evidence-based methods and tools for decision-making. He is currently a Research Scientist in the Learning & Performance Support Laboratory at the University of Georgia. His most recent efforts involve developing a four-stage systematic methodology to support assessment and improvement in performance, practice, and organization structures. The methodology has been initiated in the Video Analysis Tool (VAT), a web-based system that enables users to collect evidence from remote locations, interpret it and take a course of action. The evidence-based methods and tools are currently being used in teacher preparation, leadership supervision, and assessment of teacher practices to support growth and development.

Review:

"The text's strengths include the depth of coverage of the various forms of media/technology that educators can use in the classroom and some practical applications in various content areas at various P-12 settings..."

"I like the Video Case approach. I think this would be a great way for students to become aware of their teaching style and methods and allows them to see how to change/modify their teaching style and methods to become a more effective teacher. This is a method that would be excellent to use in subject/curriculum methods courses."

"I was really pleased to see that terminology (e.g. constructivist theory) was explained immediately after the term came up. Most of my students have not studied any of the theories when they take this course and by having an explanation, it is a nice introduction and a good 'jump off point' for classroom discussion."
