Transcript of Young Timeline

  • 1. Technology and Me A personal timeline of educational technology
  • 2. Overview
    • My name is Sam Young
    • I started school in 1961 in Galveston, Texas
    • I graduated from Galveston Ball High in 1974
    • I earned my engineering degree from Texas A&M in 1978 and my MBA from UTSA in 2004. I worked as an engineer for 32-years
    • When I finish my teaching certification, I hope to teach secondary level mathematics
  • 3. My definition of educational technology Known as e-learning, instructional technology, and learning technology: it is the knowledge and application of tools, systems, and techniques to deliver learning materials, facilitate communication, and provide assessment and feedback, to facilitate student learning, and improve student performance
  • 4. Web sites on ed tech history
    • Three web sites that discuss educational technology
    • History of educational technology
    • The invisible people
    • Education technologies teaching math
  • 5. Kindergarten technology
    • There were no computers in the class, instruction was on the blackboard
    • Expensive desktop calculators and computers were in industry
    • School copy machines were mimeograph machines
    In the early 1960s
  • 6. High school technology
    • Students learned complex math calculations with the slide ruler
    • Computer usage in math class was with a dial-up modem to a remote mainframe
    • There were no cell phones we used the rotary phone
    In the early 1970s
  • 7. College technology
    • Calculators became available to the student Texas Instruments SR50 cost $170 in 1975
    • Engineers learned Fortran on the IBM 360 mainframe to perform math calculations
    • Personal mobile communication was typically with CB radio
    In the late 1970s
  • 8. A vivid technology learning experience
    • Comic book character influenced mobile communication technology
    • Space program race with Soviet Union yielded many technological advances
    • The information age has shrunk the world and changed teaching
  • 9. A technology I want to use in my classroom
    • With ample classroom computers, I want to use the internet and ePALs to connect the Hawaii classroom with students around the world
  • 10. My vision of the classroom of the future A classroom moving to the beautiful outside Hawaiian environment where students learn competition, cooperation, and collaboration through real-world problems in their local and global communities
  • 11. A challenge for teaching
    • Lack of educational funds for technology
    • Parental disapproval of new-age technology driven holistic education
    • Teacher understanding of new technology
  • 12. Words of wisdom "The best computer is a man, and it's the only one that can be mass-produced by unskilled labor." ( Wernher Magnus Maximilian von Braun) Von Braun standing at his desk at Marshall Space Flight Center in May 1964.
