I am arguing for my college to integrate technology we already have into our classrooms.
Classrooms should integrate software packages we already have.
Look at document design and graphics with desktop publishing. This would be useful for marketing, English, design, and other courses.
Show how databases and spreadsheet programs match up with what we are already doing in our classroom and how they can make our work more effective. This might be a way to help the students figure out their averages in the class on their own. (They seem to have trouble with weighted grades.)
Use podcasts in the classroom. The students could create podcasts. The teachers could add lectures to the class by doing them as a podcast and using class time for integration of information.
Math classes could take advantage of tech and use the inverted class technique.
Use the computers more effectively. Use the internet to teach technological literacy. (Fixed as per Elizabeth’s comment.)
I want to talk about information literacy as part of digital literacy, as I started to in this post, but I haven’t finished thinking it through. It’s been almost two years. Maybe I should get on that!
