If you are looking for a job in technology integration in schools this is a must read and resource manual. rating 10/10

    1. This ebook talks about autism and the college student. It is the responsibility of colleges and universities to accommodate people with disabilities including those with autism. If a child has an IEP in most cases he can expect to receive the same or adequate accommodations. Some assistive technologies that universities can offer are computers, Live Scrib smart pens, calculators, Dragon Voice recognition software. The importance of knowing and understanding that there are a wide spectrum on the autistic scale means that with assistive technology an entire door is open to people that can lead to more independence and positive contributions to the world. For reference pages 12, 16, and 19 directly discuss AT. Score 9/10

    1. This is an interesting article for assistive technology in adult literacy as you can listen to it like a person with LD would. Initially, it was beneficial, but load times and generic voice are challenging for me, but I am not used to using the AT device. Also interesting is the lack of study on the matter of LD in adult literacy, and therefore this study is really "surveying the gaps." Sadly, what we do know is that minority LD students rates for graduation are lower than whites with LD, and that the dropout rates are higher as well. LD students access to AT may be key to understanding the dynamics of graduation and drop out rates in addition to literacy. A proven solution is small group tutoring with AT as it can be empowering and enabling LD students to learn.

    1. This article studies assistive technology and website courses the usage, extent of use, and patterns of 964 students with and without LD. The study showed that student's with LD accessed their online classroom more times than students without LD. In addition, LD student's posted more messages in the classroom, understand better how to use the classroom forum, and assistive technology. The study used the Hope Scale and the Subject of Well Being Scale through questionnaires where in both the student's scored higher than those without LD. I like the article, easy to understand and not complicated. 8/10

    1. This article discusses the narrowing gap between asisstive technology and instructional technology. Assistive Technology are strategies (although techniques in another article) used by learners with disabilities to overcome adversity in their education. Many of the technologies used in school today also assist those with disabilities. This is exciting because as technology grows people that have trouble reading printed material, or understanding material can use computer devices to read, learn, and understand.

    1. This article offers research on how education without the integration of technology is ineffective for student and faculty development. From this article compares seven faculty development models for technology integration for teachers, in three categorizes, showing which models are effective and did not do so well. The research is recent from 2010, which makes this exercise relevant to technology integration today, which all around the hope for better teachers, education, students, and institutions. 7/10

    1. This article is an easy read and is has positive notes for those not privileged. In this article we learn how technology helps adult learners especially those undeserved, using four factors in their research.

      1. Support multiple implementation models; dependent on student have access to technology in their surroundings
      2. Use data; to target and personalize instruction
      3. Support a rich technology infrastructure; broadband connectivity, computer labs, device availability and quality 4.Supporting the role of the instructor;not only teach the teacher, but help them to develop and strategize for their and their students adult learning 5/10
    1. This web page can be used in many ways because it has theories from the old to new in education and technology, and from institutions to working environments, and military. You will find George Bush, Steve Jobs, and Seymour Papert from MIT, just to name a few.

      It is really nice to see new and not so new perspectives of people that do not provide learning theories, but combine learning theories with technology, which to me is relevant for today's educators and learners. 5/10

    1. This article offers insight to technology integration for adults in Arizona. Recognizing the importance of technology in education, Arizona has put together a plan on integration for adult education. Using trends, understanding challenges, devising strategies to meet those challenges now and in the future, and meeting the expectations of how a successful learner is defined are a part of this plan for Arizona. It starts with a vision and three goals for Arizona. From there the goals and trends are implemented in short term, mid term, and long term goals over five plus years. With expecting challenges they are able to address them head on and use innovative practices. 8/10

    1. This video is an experience in Kentucky(entire state) on how they integrated technology by using a KYAE Technology Consultant in their adult education programs.

      The consultant uses the SAMR Model by Dr. Rueben Puentedura, which is Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, Redefinition, all to develop and use full technology in a new way to redefine and engage students and educators.

      A large part of technology integration are using what students own devices. But, teacher's must engage this process, it actually starts with them. And the speaker is just asking them educators to start small using the technology with their students, not the old way of teacher, but the methods that they are endorsing across the state is using them together.<br> They also talk about using surveys with experiences from instructors and students to see how they are measuring up in the success of this integration program. for example, are teachers using smart boards or did they try them and go back to not using them and why.

      The process for which measuring success and needs for improvements are rubrics, point surveys, and a three year goal with technology plan to a total technology integration. Overcoming hurdles of device and internet access is addressed as well.

      I think that this hits on learning environments, adult learning, and a possible profession for educational technology students as it is from the perspective of a technology consultant. 9/10

    1. This is one of my favorite articles about creating a faculty boot-camp for the adoption of technology in higher education. The article brings out the barriers and anxiety for educators in using techonology in the classroom. In addition, you learn how to incorporate learning theories in adult learner engagement. The boot-camp is three day's, follows "Knowles principles of adult learning," and included research, using online tools, and putting it all together. What is it? At the end they educators create an online course that they will use the following year! 9/10

    1. This proposal of sorts, is recent, from 2017, from the US department of education and educational technology offices. We get a current look at a 21 century student, which no longer only includes high school graduates and more like working family members, military personnel, have children, and are first generation attendees. The use of technology has the ability to engage and empower students in support of student success by learning from our peers, working education, flexible schedule, is online, and student centered. 10/10

    1. In this journal, Davis uses his Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), to determine the factors of how and why there is acceptance of online learning in higher education. TAM indicates that when there is an "ease of use" is equates to usefulness is a survey conducted. TAM also explains that there is a correlation between perceived usefulness, evaluations of functions, current system use, and behavioral intentions use that are all positive factors in maintaining the continued system use. Ultimately, just like in life, where there is gratification there is TAM. 10/10

    1. In this article we learn about the transition for the disabled student to life beyond high school. Initially, students with disabilities in school are assigned and Individualized Education Program (IEP) to evaluate skills and determine services needed for the success, progression, and learning of the student. Once students are 16 and older or leave school how do they deal with work, home, or even continuing education? The article provides details on implementing simulations in the "acquisition of functional skills, and how "when paired" with technology or digital simulations the student can practice more and maintain skills better. The article offers a great charts for trying technology based software, multimedia, training activities, with students with disabilities and outcomes. 10/10

    1. This page helps us discover the definition of STEM, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, and the confusion it is causing to find a universal meaning for the US. STEM is important because it is a large basis for developing students for a "career ready" future. So, we can understand how important STEM is but it all depends on who or what state you ask as to which pillar(s) is(are) most important. Looking at each state for definitions of the four categories of STEM varies by integrated, Disciplinary+Integrated, Disciplinary, or neither. Arizona is Disciplinary+Integrated. And you will discover for this site that STEM is progressing with STEAM, the A meaning hand-on artistic ventures. Another is STEM-H, the H for Health or STREAM, the R for religion. I do not promise the site will give you a clear definition of STEM but you get a great sense of where we are moving towards in the future, career focused education. 9/10

    1. This page helps us understand the challenge states have in finding great teachers in rural and undeserved areas. As the "teacher pool" declines the more teachers positions are being filled with unqualified candidates. With VR and VP we are now able to reach these places with more qualified teachers by using virtual tools such as videoconferencing systems, could based collaboration learning platforms, and satellite-based broadband communications. EDTech Insider also bring up a plethora of K-12 topics and solutions. There is video content, ways to connect, and a premium content but do not worry there is enough information for free to sooth your technology tooth! Ratings 10/10

    1. This is a great book with relevant information. First off "Naked" means face-to-face. Which can be confusing because although this book was written in 2012 and is in support of advancement of students attending college in non-traditional ways, it still boasts the importance of teacher interaction with students. I like that this book is for administration and faculty because it can form a relationship with both like allies. I will most likely read this book, it has a lot of references to challenges, how to measure success, new global markets, and how to keep up. I also like the view that "technology is a technique no a strategy" because I sometimes think if we all would look at it that way it wouldn't be intimidating. Ratings 10/10

    1. I picked this article because I could only take ground campus math so I was taught by a live teacher. This article took over 30K students and looked at many environmental aspects such as; technology availability, economic backgrounds, positive teaching environments, student centered teaching, and strong teacher bonding. What were the end conclusions, the variances of about 15% of a high tech environment vs more people supported environment in math. The article is very interesting. We would think that having technology would have much better results than an overbearing parent or involved teacher, but from what I read, this is not the case, they are very close! Ratings 8/10

    1. This article presents how to build a technology learning community in support of three rural schools.It incorporates teacher development, and uses many important strategies in understanding success. I would use this article as reference for conducting a study to understand outcomes. The used processes include: Stages of Adoption Inventory classroom observations, the Questionnaire for Technology Integration, interviews, STAR evaluations surveys, teacher survey perceptions study on the impact of the project on student achievement, and force field analysis. Using professional learning communities is imperative in professional development, culture, and productivity. This article unfolds in detail a plan and the results, which could be adopted as a success for creating professional learning communities. Ratings 10/10

    1. This study gives us research based look at student, adult learner and teacher perspective in technology supported learning environments (TSLEs). The study is recent and incorporates cutting edge TSLEs that use probeware, simulations, and virtual reality technology. The method was participate based using six dimensions coding scheme; technical, content, cognitive, metacognitive, social, and affective. There are 22 studies reviewed to develop the instruments in this study.It is very detailed and so much information to get out of the benefit of understanding how TSLEs are perceived by learners and teachers that use them.
