Educational Technology Integration in the 21st Century Classroom: A review of resource tools and information

GLOGSTER PRESENTATION LINK: http://liebermanc.edu.glogster.com/glog-9993-8940/

Finding a comprehensible digital media education model that will improve the capabilities of our nation’s future knowledge workers is vital to the successful preparation of our children—and our nation—in today’s ever-evolving and complex hypermediated world.

There are many ways and many tools that can help educators integrate education in to the classroom. Interacting with media technology affords novel ways of thinking about the social and technical aspects of digital literacy development. As demonstrated in the referenced EDU Glogster poster, easy access to wide-ranging resources, unique approaches to creative digital storytelling, and the variety of transmedia narrative tools available today are inspiring thoughtful ways to put technology into action in the classroom.

From ideas for creating digital stories to using digital tools such as wikis, blogs, Prezi and more, Media Psychologists Cynthia Lieberman and Diana Graber will walk participants through a multitude of resources, including lesson plans, presentation tools, wikis, online organization tools, and other innovative applications that will help teachers creatively and successfully integrate technology into their classrooms.

Attendees of the session will also have an opportunity to discuss creative ways they have used the tools presented and/or used other tools in the classroom to increase learning aptitudes and media literacy skills.

Participant Involvement

Through presentation and discussion, teachers will have an opportunity to learn how digital technology can be an added value and not a resource drain in the classroom. An active Q&A will be included to allow for teachers to talk about other resources they use and how they have creatively integrated technology into their classrooms, and how it has assisted with cognitive learning, media literacy and student self efficacy.
