Transcript of EDU 542: Integrating Technology into Education

I chose 2 emerging technologies TTS & Live Stream because Instructors can promote learning, listening, and writing skills by informing students that the adoption of a TTS & Live Stream application can assist in expanding reading coverage, allowing a different frame of reference when reviewing and editing their own writing, and enhancing listening skills (that promotes focus during class lectures, discussion, and general communication).

A. Implementing Text to Speech & Live Stream could prepare students for the ever evolving technological advances.

Summary / Reflection

I. Introduction...
By teachers using Text to Speech driven by Live Stream, classes will have an ethical & moral tone to them by discouraging students from using texting in inappropriate ways. Many kids today are using texting to bully or send lewd messages to one another. This topic could be brought in to dissuade that kind of behavior. Technology is improving at a rate that some of us cannot keep up with.
Text to Speech & Live Stream
By implementing these applications into the classroom, teachers can prepare students for the ever evolving technological advances. Some people believe that texting in school is a distraction and can lead to cheating, but by integrating these applications into a classroom session and properly teaching students how to use texting & Live Stream, they both can & will be beneficial to both the student and the teacher.
II. Benefits
A. A Speech-To-Text program merged with Live Stream would have the capability to enhance a wide variety of educational situations in any demographic area.

1. At any level, these programs could be used to assist in student writing, boost reading capabilities, and provide additional support for students who have special needs. Education is undergoing a major shift, as brick-and-mortar classrooms are opening up to rich media content, subject matter experts, and to one another. The need for applications such as TTS & Live Stream has been influenced largely by technological and pedagogical trends, greater worldwide access to the Internet, an explosion of mobile phone users, and the appreciation for these technologies by young people, as well as by teachers.
A. Technology implementation brings anxiety to the change process.
Teachers need an environment where they feel comfortable taking risks and learning new things such as TTS & Live Stream. Administrative support would allow teachers the freedom (and the time) to explore these new technologies. Administrators also must help ensure that technology projects such as this one is valued. Supporters should include members of the implementation team, such as teacher leaders, subject area coordinators, technology coordinators, and/or a special education director.
A. Support from the larger community will give TTS & Live Stream an implementation a boost.
1.) Community support would come from a variety of sources: community-wide support for funding increases so schools can purchase technology, for example, or community members who are willing to teach courses to students (and teachers) on Web design, computer-aided drafting, or programming. So I recommend that there be a strong push for Community support to the overall school community and stakeholders.
My Pilot Project
1.) My pilot project would be to address and resolve any operational limitations within a reasonable time frame. Presuming positive transition outcomes, secondary objectives would be to identify --

barriers to AIM and TTS usage and mechanisms to resolve those barriers
student characteristics that were predictive of success in using AIM and TTS

The pilot project would be conducted in collaboration with five public school districts and data taken and collected on twenty students.
Goals Of Proposal
Learning Objective(s)
Measure & Examine Student knowledge of (Live Stream & TTS) program in general; reading features, writing sup-ports, and study skills in particular

1.) Overview of program and features
2.) Student understanding of reading tools
3.) Student understanding of basic writing tools
4.) Student understanding of comprehension study tools
5.) Student understanding of all other program related tools

Learning Outcome(s)
Computer and peripheral features and functions

1.) Students will be able to identify various computer operating systems
2.) Students will be able to manipulate and identify key features to laptops
3.) Students will have working knowledge of basic software (Word, internet explorer, excel, etc.)
4.) Students will be able to operate (scanners, printers, et al.).
5.) Students will understand ‘language’ of software

Time Line
Name: Frederick Goodman
Project Start Date: Jan 5, 2014 Project End Date: Jan 22, 2015
Based on a 1yr. project & 1.5 million Budget Implementation Of Live Stream & TTS
Draft Proposal to Dr. Bowen 15 Dec 2013
Submit Proposal to School Board. December Submission
Anticipated date for School Board Approval. End of December
Deliver Approval letter to Research Office and fill out paperwork to start payments. End of December
Pilot Study Data collection. December 01, 2013
Data collection complete. January 31, 2014
Data analysis complete. February 8, 2014
Review findings School Board. February 11, 2014
Review draft Final Report with supervisor. February 22, 2014
Submit Final Report to MD. Dept. of Education (no later than 4 weeks past end date) March 21, 2014

III. Cost
The anticipated cost could be up to $1. 5 million in order to fully to integrate and implement Live Stream & TTS throughout the school district. The final estimated amount will be subject to school board’s budgetary approval process; it is possible that the tentative amount stated may be lower or higher than anticipated. Grants & donations has been be solicited from organizations that service the community such as Target, Wal-Mart, Dollar General as well as local and state government.
IV. Conclusion
The majority of schools do not have the resources or technology to assist teachers in meeting the collaborative and individual need of students. If school districts start using TTS & Live Stream, schools would increase their graduation success rate by 20% at the end of each school year. Teaching is better when conducted in a productive environment with groups and collaboration, but reinforcement of material could be greatly improved with interactivity, social aspects and new technology. From assignments, homework, tests to digital textbooks, TTS & Live Stream offers numerous ways to eliminate paper, saving dollars, and the preserving environment. TTS & Live Stream both are fully compatible with online teaching and learning platforms which can be easily integrated into the everyday classroom.
Teachers often become discouraged and decide that the new tool is not worth the trouble, particularly when they feel their old way of doing things works just fine. Schools in this district will need to have strong technological support in place. Teachers will need to know that they have helped when TTS & Live Stream is functioning properly, that they have resources when they are unsure how to them and that they can get recommendations immediately in the classroom.

Through my proposal, implementing Text to Speech and Live Stream as instructional tools, I will be serving a dual purpose. First, I will be giving student(s) an actual visual of the programs that’s going to be implemented. Secondly, students, teachers, administrators, and stakeholders will understand that there are moral & ethical codes (though not written) to using such programs. Lastly, students using TTS & Live Stream will be preparing for the challenges of the 21st century learning curve. True, there are many applications and software tools that greatly assist teachers in prepping students, however, my research have proven that the combination of TTS driven by Live Stream is the most productive and constructive way of keeping students engaged.
