This assignment proved to be quite difficult. Homeschooling with the use of modern technology is a fairly new addition to this particular realm of education. Originally, I was hoping to gain knowledge on homeschooling communities who were currently using technology for math and science. However, this was not easy to obtain, so I changed my focus on technology in elementary education math and science classrooms. This provided me with a lot of good information that I could still use in my home classroom.
It is critical to stay abreast of new developments in educational technology because it provides the latest and greatest ways of educating our youth. New technology can be challenging at first, but extremely beneficial in the long run. These articles proved that using technology in the classroom, especially with math and science, allows for the students to be involved and gives them a hands-on approach to their learning. This is crucial in their desire to learn specific subjects, which aids in their comprehension. The ideas presented in these articles will greatly improve the creation of my curriculum for my homeschooled students.
Here is my annotated bibliography in PDF format.
This assignment utilizes AECT standard 2.1 “Print Technologies” because it allowed us to research articles that can provide us with a foundation for the development and utilization of other instructional materials, such as technology like web-browsing and computers in the classroom.
