This review of recent surveys highlights some of the benefits and obstacles of using different kinds of technology in the classroom, but it also raises some great questions that have yet to be explored with thorough surveys.
The video selected is Learning Styles and Technology
1) The elements of the NETS-T standards and sub-standards that are addressed in the video is: Design and Develop Digital Age Learning Experiences and Assessments Customize and personalize learning activities to address students’ diverse learning styles, working strategies, and abilities using digital tools and resources (ISTE. n.d.).
Learning activities are developed by the student and the student is able to address their own learning styles to make learning fun for them, will keep the student interest, make what they learn personal, and the skills learned will stick with the student.
2) Promote and Model Digital Citizenship and Responsibility: Address the diverse needs of all learners by using learner-centered strategies providing equitable access to appropriate digital tools and resources (ISTE. n.d.).
Students will be provided the tools and resources that will appreciate each students learning style and their diverse learning ability. Teachings will be based on the learners’ unique needs to learn the skills needed to be successful.
In the national surveys (with the exception of the Common Sense Media Survey), teachers seem to be leaning toward the idea that technology is a helpful tool in their classrooms. They are open to using technology, currently use technology, and many desire to use more technology. Teachers are especially enthusiastic about technology when it comes to professional development, putting together classroom lesson plans, and collaborating with other teachers (Barseghian, 2013). Surveys are a great way to build knowledge about how technology affects teachers, students, and parents in school.
A thought I have after watching the video is when a lesson is teacher based he/she is taught how to create a lesson that targets each individual students needs and interest; now with the use of technology this is so much easier because the teacher can interact with each student more efficiently and can target the areas the student is struggling in by using the child’s interest.
I have seen a teacher used technology (internet, ipad, and/or a computer) to communicate with a deaf three year old student and his communication skills (American Sign Language) flourished in a short amount of time. Before the use technology teachers was using flash cards, labeling objects around the room with American Sign Language (ASL) signs, and in the moment signs. All these techniques are affective but with the reward of using the computer and/ or ipad the child was more interested and was able to interact with the program at his own pace.
