Case Number 8405-1 Does the use of technology in this case fall in line with a level of the Thomas and Boysen Taxonomy or the LoTi Model?
This case describes a middle school Social Studies class that uses Microsoft Office Publisher in order to put together their own brochure about a nearby city that they have researched online The technology in this lesson ties in closely with Utilization on the Thomas and Boysen Taxonomy as students are using processes that they have learned through research and practice to create their brochures. The technology in this lesson contains elements of LoTi Level 5-Expansion. The students are exploring another city in their research which lends itself to exploring and collaborating with people outside of the school setting. They can then bring that outside information to answer their own questions about the new city and the content learned. Students are experienceing a real world application of Microsoft Publisher and other technologies needed to complete the project. What do you see as the strengths or weaknesses in this case? Strengths:
Real world application of the technology, relevance of the content that they are learning, much more interactive program for students versus reading about cities in books, allows for creativity, students see the computer as a more exciting well of knowledge Weaknesses:
Publisher may be outmoded, technology in terms of publication is increasingly more on line versus in print, if students are contacting people in these cities for research information, there could be safety or bias issues What are some of the benefits that students get from the technology used in the case assuming it is integrated well? Students are learning skills, software, and thinking processes that can be used in a variety of content areas including English, Social Studies, Foreign Language, Health, Science, etc. The research, communicative writing skills, and manner of presentation and design are also valuable for numerous areas. How can technology be used to promote the ideas behind UDL (Universal Design for Learning) to meet the individual learning needs of all children?
Technology allows students to be pursue an infinite range of inquiry into their own interests which will naturally lend to an engaging learning experience.

Technology can help the teacher build lessons around a student centered constructivist approach that allows students to plan and execute their own creative projects. This is particular useful for students of various learning styles.

This all culminates in a flexible curriculum that meets content standards and keeps up with the constant changes in education. Describe how student access to technology has caused these classrooms to operate differently from classrooms without technology. What is the same? What is different? Classrooms without technology require a lot more imagination and creativity on the part of the teacher but not necessarily of the students. Technologies such as these require students to think globally and actively engage in their own learning rather than passively listening to the knowledge of the teacher. Students are required to take ownership over their own learning.
Teacher has to become more of a faciliator over internet activities and teaching internet ethics. The role of the teacher is the same as far as being responsible
for his/her students. where can you find a classroom without technology?
