Student-Centered Learning Environment Using Technology
Teacher centered vs. Student centerd learning
Teacher centered has "a focus on memorization of facts, formulas, dates, names, and so on. The student is then expected to recall the exact information for the test." (Gary R. Morrison, 2010, p. 9)

Student centered "focuses on authentic intellectual work in a student-centered environment.This approach requires students to formulate problems, collect information and data, organize and manipulate the information and data, and then formulate an answer."
(Gary R. Morrison, 2010, p. 9)
iNtegrating Technology for inQuiry (NTeQ)
1. The teacher is technologically competent and assumes the roles of designer, manager, and facilitator.
2. The student actively engages in the learning process, assuming the role of researcher and gaining technological competence.
3. The computer is used as a tool, as it is in the workplace, to enhance learning through the use of real-world data to solve problems.
4. The lesson is student centered, problem based, and authentic, and technology is an integral component.
5. The environment incorporates multiple resource-rich activities.
(Gary R. Morrison, 2010, p. 16)

Student Centered Learning from National Educational Technology Standards(NETS-S)
-students use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance , to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others. An example would be the use of an iEARN project in Language arts class where students from one class work collaboratively with students from all over the world on creating a story book with different school being in charge of certain pages.

-students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, solve problems, and make informed decisions using appropriate digital tools and resources. An example of this would be for students to research a history topic or use www.tramline.com to take a structured and guided 'field trip" and create a Powerpoint or some similar type of presentation software to share with their classmates. (

-students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate and use information. One example of this would be the use of Kids Zone online program for creating and sharing graphs. This can be found at http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/createagraph/

-teachers use their knowledge of subject matter, teaching and learning and technology to facilitate experiences that advance student learning, creativity and innovation in both face-to-face and virtual environments.

What does a Student Centered learning Environment look like?
Teachers act as facilitators providing students with necessary material and aides in scaffolding. Students learn through collection of data, investigations, creating and testing a hypothesis and generate a solution. They work in groups collaborating with others to form deep understanding.
Potential Problems/Solutions
Limited computer use: A sign out sheet has been created on the school portal. Be sure to sign up early for use of laptops and computer lab.
Support from experts: District has professionals, use them.
High speed internet for student use at home: allow students entrance into the school after hours to work if needed.
Time for teachers to learn: 3 days have been set aside for full staff PD for integrative technology.
