Front Cover
Houghton Mifflin, Apr 1, 2003 - Education - 461 pages
Integrating Technology for Meaningful Learning takes a unique, cognitive approach to technology, distinguishing itself from other texts by emphasizing meaningful learning for both teachers and students. The text strikes a balance between practical applications and theoretical issues, so teachers concentrate on the connections between learning tasks and the mental activities of their students. The new edition expands its coverage of using the Internet as a communication and inquiry tool and includes up-to-date information on emergent technology. An increased emphasis on Internet applications includes updated references to Internet-based technology throughout the text and additional material from Grabe/Grabe, Integrating the Internet for Meaningful Learning. Coverage of applications concentrates on readily available software, making the book is as useful as possible for classroom teachers. This edition gives increased attention to PowerPoint presentation software and digital video. The authors expanded the new edition's emphasis on higher-order thinking by adding information on critical thinking. The unregulated access to sources provided by the Internet necessitates the development of critical-thinking skills in today's students.
