From Tool to Vector: Why You Need to Reconsider Your Use of Technology - We have advocated for many years that technology is only a “tool,” and thus a means to an end.

It now seems to us that this is changing and that technology is now a method of instruction. It is no longer sufficient for an instructional leader to view technology as just another tool in the classroom as it now provides a method for teachers to transcend instruction beyond traditional direct instruction models and more into the social aspect of learning....   [tags: Technology ]

Technology in the Mathematics Classroom - Technology in the Mathematics Classroom While reading the NCTM summary on Technology, it is to my understanding that use of technology is at the teacher’s discretion. Therefore, the teacher is charged with the responsibility of preparing students before venturing into the field of technology.

Technology in Mathematics Classrooms - Technology Views NCTM summarizes the technology principle by saying, “technology is essential in teaching and learning mathematics; it influences the mathematics that is taught and enhances students’ learning.” I’m not sure that I agree with the entirety of this statement. Technology is important; it allows students to quickly make connections that would be lost without the speed and precision of computers. Technology also allows for thoughtless reproduction of facts already known. Imagine how long it would take to solve a college level mathematics problem without the aid of calculators for division, multiplication, exponents, and logarithms....   [tags: Education School] 893 words

Trying to Create a Writing Technology - Trying to Create a Writing Technology Creating a writing technology is a much more difficult task than I first anticipated. I thought it would be rather simple to create text within nature, but my first attempt failed miserably. I found something to act as the "paper" rather easily, but my problem was finding something that would act as the "ink" on my writing surface.

The Connection between Writing and Technology - The Connection between Writing and Technology There are times when an idea pops into your head and immediately you need to write it down or lose the thought forever. What is the first thing you grab. Probably a pen or pencil and then a piece of paper, or even the nearest keyboard.
