Using Technology How?

This is a version of a Type I & Type II Technologies presentation from 2011, presented at a local educational technology conference. So much has changed since then, but the purposes of technology in the classroom are increasingly important and worthy of continued discussion.

The narrative throughout these slides centers around the purposes which different technologies serve for education, more specifically teachers and students. Here are my notes:

Slide 2 – Based on Maddux and Johnson (2006), technology used in the classroom can be divided into Type I and Type II technologies.
Examples of Type I technologies: email, word processing programs, presentation programs, projectors, file sharing programs. There is nothing wrong with Type I technology.
Examples of Type II technologies: podcasting, social media, multimedia presentations. Type II technologies are not “better,” but have potential to impact student achievement.
