History and Mission
The Technologies for Teaching and Learning Program was started in 1994 for the purpose of leading the LCSC Division of Education and Kinesiology's efforts to help preservice and inservice teachers learn to successfully integrate computer technologies into their student's learning experiences.
The Technologies for Teaching and Learning Program consistently follows these guidelines in developing and conducting its preservice projects:
- A primary benefit of computer technology is that it can help classrooms become more student centered and more creative learning environments.
- Computer technology can provide tools for teachers to be more organized and effective in their teaching.
- Learning happens more readily when learned in the context of doing a project that is meaningful to the learner (as opposed to learning skills in isolation).
- Effective teaching of technology should take place over a relatively long period of time (a few hours a week for several months, or many hours a day for a week or longer).
