Bulgar, Sylvia – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2007
The use of videotaped episodes of elementary mathematics classrooms for professional development is not new. However, without appropriate support, preservice teachers may find it difficult to hone in on the underlying features of the targeted practices displayed in the swift-moving action of the classroom being observed. The focus in this study is…

Hoban, Garry F. – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2007
Slow motion animation ("slowmation") is a new teaching approach that uses a simple animation process to engage learners in creating their own comprehensive animations of science concepts. In this paper, preservice elementary teachers used slowmation, a form of stop-motion animation, to make models of science concepts and take digital…

Kervin, Kristy – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2007
In 2006, as a beginning teacher in a Western Sydney school, the author explored slow motion animation ("slowmation") as a strategy for teaching Year 4 students about equivalent fractions. She taught at this school five days a week, teaching Kindergarten, Year 4, and Year 5. Slowmation can be defined as a simplified version of claymation…

Valanides, Nicos; Angeli, Charoula – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2006
The purpose of this study was to examine the extent to which preservice elementary teachers were able to construct viable scientific models with a computer-modeling tool, namely Model-It, and design a science lesson with models. The results of the study showed that (a) Model-It, through its scaffolds (i.e., Plan, Build, and Test modes), enabled…

Hofer, Mark; Swan, Kathleen Owings – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2006
Educators are simultaneously bombarded with both calls to integrate technology in meaningful ways into their teaching and to promote more student-centered activities which combine both content learning and higher-order thinking. This is no small task given the range of student abilities and interests, the increasing emphasis on state standards and…

Papert, Seymour – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2005
The phrase "technology and education" usually means inventing new gadgets to teach the same old stuff in a thinly disguised version of the same old way. Moreover, if the gadgets are computers, the same old teaching becomes incredibly more expensive and biased towards its dullest parts, namely the kind of rote learning in which measurable…

Papert, Seymour – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2005
Although printed in 1970, "Teaching Children Thinking" was conceived in 1968 and bears the signs of the heady atmosphere of that time. The most explicit idea in "Teaching Children Thinking" is that children could be in charge of computers, not computers in charge of the children by offering what was the new image of children…
