Description

Title:Fear and Frustration Take on Educational Technology
Author(s):Wyler, Allison
Subject(s):Technology
Academics
Disability
Educational Technology
Abstract:This project investigates the mission of the Office of Educational Technology that “is to provide active leadership, valuable resources, and quality support to enable College of Education faculty, staff, and students to improve research, to enhance teaching and learning, and to facilitate service through the use of technology”. The author asks: How will using loads of technology actually help the students of the College of Education presently and in their future? On the basis of the review of documents, interviews, surveys, and participant research in the Special Education course 312, Introduction to Educational Technology, the study finds that some of the reasons for using technology in education are motivation, increased teacher productivity, the special instructional capabilities of technology, support for new instructional approach, and the need to be competent in skills based on technology use for the current information age. However, the study also discusses the lack of exposure of many students to technology, as well as the obstacles for students with disabilities to gain access to technology that will assist them during their studies.
