    5 : Fostering technology integration Universal student access Reliable networks Multiple opportunities for training and support Environment which values experimentation and tolerates failures Source: Spodark
    6 : Current state of higher ed tech integration Source: Sax
    7 : How are faculty currently using technology? Source: Sax
    8 : Why bother? Access to vast repositories of INFORMATION and RESOURCES REFLECTION upon (and in some cases transformation of) the way we teach VISUALIZATION and CONCEPTUALIZATION Opportunities to create ENGAGED learners Ability to ACCOMODATE varied learning styles
    9 : How can faculty know what’s possible? Magazines and Journals: T.H.E. Syllabus Converge Conferences and Websites EDUCAUSE Syllabus The Collaboration Instructor resource guides with websites Augie’s own Instructional Technologist!
    10 : Technology can support learning by facilitating… EXPLORATION and ANALYSIS of information SIMULATION of events or processes VISUALIZATION of abstract concepts MANIPULATION of variables CONSTRUCTION of knowledge PRACTICE and drilling of skills
    11 : Instead of writing comments in the margins of students’ papers, you can have students can send papers via e-mail. Then, using a microphone attached to a PC, you can make audio comments on the papers. If you return the papers via e-mail, students can listen to your comments with headphones or speakers. Or, to save disk space, you can use the annotate feature in Word You may already know how to create links to Web sites in PowerPoint, but you can also easily create links to the files from within a PowerPoint presentation: Paper Some ideas…
    12 : Use the custom animation feature to animate charts, graphs, and images within Powerpoint to make your message come alive… Some more ideas…
    13 : This piece represents which artistic style? ? Realism Baroque Impressionism Neo-Classicism Realism Baroque Impressionism Neo-Classicism Madonna and Child with Saints 1708Oil on canvas, 406 x 208 cmSan Giorgio Maggiore, Venice RICCI, Sebastiano (b. 1659, Belluno, d. 1734, Venezia)
    14 : South America Africa Australia Asia North America Understanding Cultural Influences
    15 : Rainforest ecosystem decline
    16 : Virtual field trips via Web or interactive CD-ROM Some more ideas…
    17 : Cave paintings in Dunhuang, China
    18 : Battle Maps
    19 : Field Museum Sounds from the Vault Tending the Memory: National Digital Archives
    20 : More ideas Create Web pages that impose visual structure and an expert’s conceptual framework upon complex information Use modeling software to help students visualize molecular structures Provide access to accompaniment software that responds and adjusts to the student’s tempo (and is available anytime!) Create online forums for students to review their classmates’ papers, creating a “writers’ community” Use Word™ to capture classroom discussions for posting and review Use Babelfish or Google to translate phrases from one language to another (and back again, for some interesting comparisons!) Use simulation software, such as SimCity (urban planning) or SimLife (biology) to enable students to manipulate complex variables in a simulated environment
    21 : More ideas Use biomechanics software and digital video capture to help students in physical education and sports Use digital microscope cameras to allow an entire class to view the same microscopic image Use thermal imaging software to plot thermal fluctuations Use electronic “smart boards” instead of projection screens to run software demonstrations and capture whiteboard images

    23 : Two basic types of technology integration... Type I “Make it easier, quicker, or otherwise more efficient to continue teaching the same things in the same ways we have always taught them.” Type II “Make available new and better ways of teaching.” (We’re aiming for “Type II”!)
    24 : Finally… While information does not equal knowledgeand technology is not a “cure-all”, thoughtful, meaningful, and authentic integration of technology and information resources can enhance learning and lead to development of knowledge.
