Learning to solve problems with technology: a constructivist perspective
Rather than focus on technology as a tool to teach with, this book stresses that technology—video, hypermedia, the Internet, etc.—is an excellent tool to learn with. The emphasis is on learning to solve problems. By concentrating on problem solving with several specific media, the authors show how a variety of technologies can be used to engage students in personally and socially constructed meaning. They address the Internet, and how it can be used to foster community building; video, and how naturally students take to being behind the camera; and multimedia, as a new form of interactive literacy. The Internet material also includes a section on creating a personal or group website, plus coverage of cybermentoring. For teachers in computer classes and media centers—of students at all grade levels.
