University of Hawaii at Manoa Educational Technology
Presenter for the Following Session
- Energy Efficiency in the Home
The goal of this six-week online course is to educate Hawaii high school environmental science students grades 9-12 on how to find alternative energy solutions in the home. These solutions will reduce energy use in each of four areas; lighting, water heating, large appliances, and reduction of phantom loads.
- Integrating Google Blogs into the K-6 Language Arts Classroom To Promote Interactive Learning Communities
Educators must integrate technology into their curriculum with the introduction of State Common Core Standards nationwide in grades K-12. The new standard emphasizes the use of technology including the Internet to produce writing products. Bringing literacies into a classroom is not an easy task for a teacher, especially when two-thirds of teachers feel underprepared to use technology in the classroom (Barone & Wright, 2008).
