Technology and the New Teacher: Basics

About this Daily Classroom Special
Technology and the New Teacher is designed to introduce you to the topics, successes, and pitfalls of technology in the classroom. It was written by Buzz Eyler, a Teachers Network web mentor who has been leading in-service training in technology use for the past 12 years.  

(Note: This page was written in 1999. Some information may be dated.)

Basics

It is very important to understand that technology is a tool to help learning, not an end in itself. Unless you are teaching a class in Technology Maintenance, all this hardware and software is to be used to help your students be able to use all the levels of Bloom's Taxonomy. (Bet you thought you would never have to hear that again. In case you've forgotten, here's a quick link).

Most people think computers when they say technology. That is not a broad enough grouping. It also includes video and audio recording and playback devices, fax machines, copiers, printers, cameras, scanners, and projection devices. You should know how to use them all.

As you read through the following pages, specific uses of each piece of equipment will be discussed. For now, find out where they are housed at your school, if they are working, and see if you can be  trained to make them work. Then let your teaching methods allow for technology integration, not just doing the workbook pages.
