Vision of Technology for Teaching
and Learning


Multiple
environments will exist for teaching and
learning
, unbound
by place, time, income, language
or disability.


The
classroom, gymnasium, laboratory, library, theater
,
and
museum will be a workspace for teachers
and
learners but
will not always be a physical space.
Students
will access
learning resources anywhere,
anytime through
the use
of technology.

networking tools to:


p
rovide
access
to space, technology,
and
infrastructure
needs.


p
rovide instruction and guidance for development
of digital literacy skills needed to effectively utilize
social media platforms.


f

practices

Providing Access


To physical space:


a common space for meeting and connecting.



To technology and infrastructure:


96
% of students with Internet access use social
networking
tools. (National
School Board
Association
Report, 2007)


A
ccording
to the 2010 release of the National
Broadband Plan, roughly one
-
third of the
population lacked broadband internet
connection in their
homes
.


P
ublic
libraries provide the only internet access
for 70% of impoverished
communities.

Development of Digital Literacy Skills


Training opportunities:


From
2008
-
2010, there has been an increase in public
library training opportunities available for all learners.


The
number of public libraries
offering:


informal
point
-
of
-
use assistance increased from
52% to 79
%;


formal
training classes increased from 35% to 38
%;


and the number offering online
training material
dramatically rose from 3% to 30% (Public Libraries
& The Internet, 2011).


In
2009,
52 million
people obtained help using
technology
from a librarian or volunteer, and
16 million
took advantage of public library offered computer classes
(Clark &
Visser
, 2010).


Digital services:


A 2007 University of Michigan study showed that a total
of 23% respondents stated that “yes” or “maybe” they
would be interested in contacting librarians through
social networking sites.


Searching library databases has gone mobile. Through
apps, such as “
AccessMyLibrary
”, students have the
opportunity to access library resources and media on
specific topics 24/7. Students can receive sources for
homework, hobbies, research, and more, all free once a
school is registered.
