The Promise of Technology: Are Technology-Rich Units Changing the Roles of Teachers and Students?
Full recordShow full item record
AbstractCarroll (2000) suggested ways in which technology would create new roles for teachers and students in the classroom. He stated that technology-enhanced units should be more student-centered and collaborative, that the learning should be more active and more problem-based. This study compares lessons designed by teachers using either INTEL Teach to the Future model or the WebQuest model. A correlation study was done to compare the role of teachers and students supported by these lessons and the NETS-S standards they meet. The results indicate both INTEL lessons and WebQuest lessons can create new roles for teachers and students when they meet NETS-S relating to research and problem solving but do not always support new roles when meeting standards relating to technology as a productivity tool.
