Transcript of Instructional Technology
The Audio Visual Age (1910-1950)
Instructional Technology In Schools
Instructional technology should be used within the schools as long as teachers remember that it should be used to aid teaching. Schools should try to avoid the traditional technology classroom and transition towards an integrated technology classroom. Teachers should continually receive further education to keep up with continually changing technology. When budgets are low schools should consider adopting a BYOD program.
Economics of Instructional Technologies
Upfront investments needed to create infrastructure
Additional costs during the life span of the technology due to adding students or updates
What is Instructional Technology?
"Instructional Technology is the theory and practice of design, development, utilization, management and evaluation of processes and resources for learning"(Anderson, 2008).
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Encourages teacher creativity
Makes technology accessible and consistent
Principles, Teachers and Instructional Technology
Sufficient education and support should be given
Principals and teachers should be encouraged to participate in post-graduate education
Education = leadership role
Student Opinion of Instructional Technology
Frustration among students that have to “power down” their use of technology when they enter school buildings.
Students are demand more technology rich learning environments
Students would like the opportunity to use more web 2.0 devices
Technology is Engaging
Students are growing up in a technology driven world
Students use technology everyday
Using something students like helps to keep students engaged in the lesson
Technology is multifaceted
Calculate the Benefits
What should the 21st century classroom look like?
Association for Educational Communications and Technology
“Educational Technology is the study and ethical practice of facilitating learning and improving performance by creating, using, and managing appropriate technological processes and resources” (Anderson, 2008).

Technology Education verses Instructional Technology
Both relate to technology
Study of Technology
Teaches about technology
Concerned with any innovation, change, or modification of the natural environment
The goal of Technology Education is to develop the ability to use, manage, understand, and evaluate technology in general.
Technologies used for communication and the dissemination of information
Teaches through technology.
The primary goal of Educational Technologies
is to enhance the teaching and learning process.
Technologies with high fixed costs and low variable costs—such as television and smartboards—can be quite inexpensive, if they serve large numbers of students. They are rated higher on the economic scale.
Technologies with high variable costs, and that work in conjunction with conventional teaching—such as personal computers—are unlikely to bring any cost advantage. Indeed, they may be quite expensive.
Burden to provide technology falls on parents
Harder for the teacher
Higher passing rate
More student activity in the classroom
Less student teacher communication
Students must find access to technology
Traditional Technology Classroom
What students and teachers are used to
Often lecture based
Not adapting to new teaching methods
Technologies that replace conventional teaching, rather than complement it, are likely to have a cost advantage.
Technologies that are relatively self-contained, and require only minimal pedagogical input and support at the local level may have a cost advantage.
Higher passing rate
Appeals to what students are interested in
Loss of some student teacher interaction
