Hi everyone. I just joined Classroom 2.0. I am an associate professor teaching chiropractic technique and also serve as Academic Technology Director at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN. Working on an EdD in educational technology online at Boise State University. A primary part of my role at NwHSU is helping faculty integrate technology into their teaching. Currently exploring dissertation ideas!
I am interested in becoming part of instrucinional technology group. I wish to learn more on how blogs can be used to enhance learning
Greetings my name is Rashidah and I have at last stepped out of the classroom of teaching 360+ students a week technology to focusing on teaching the teacher. I have worked in a k-8 environment for the past seven years in an Urban setting and I have discovered a great deal about myself , students, and teacher needs and challenges. I want to now have more discussions with my peers and look forward to future participation.
As you may have seen in my profile, I am from a small developing country. We are just beginning the process of integrating technology into teaching and learning. It is not and easy process, especially because of the reluctance of teachers. They say that they are more comfortable with traditional methods.
As a Curriculum Resource Teacher working with reluctant high school teachers, I am always looking for new strategies for effectively integrating technology in the classroom.
I am joining this group coming in from a background of 18 years teaching 7-12 English and German, and 8 years and counting of post-secondary teaching writing and administrating. Obviously, I am interested in the use of technology in teaching writing as well as how it can help colleges make the transition (social and academic) to college more successful for first year students.
In my writing center, I offer voice recognition software and recording software for students to compose and to hear their own writing, and am exploring the use of "smart" pens and tablets with handwriting recognition capability.
wow thanks for the tech tools!
My school is very strong on what we call assistive technology. One program that we use with all students, but particularly struggling writers is Smart Ideas. This allows students to independently plan their writing. Once finished with Smart Ideas, students then use Premier, essentially a talking word processor with word prediction. Again, this allows independence when writing and frees up the teacher. With premier you can also scan texts which the computer will read to the students. We also use Dragon Naturally Speaking (free download). Students train Dragon for voice recognition and then speak in order to write. Our last amazing program is from Kurzweil http://heidisiwak.blogspot.com/
