Description

The Writing Initiative at Passaic County Community College has a primary goal of improving writing by redesigning more than 20 GenEd courses across disciplines as writing-intensive. An embedded component of the project is the use of technology by the faculty and students participating in the WI courses. A secondary goal is to expand the number of other instructors integrating technology into their courses – to start a ripple effect in the college community.

New technologies rise and fall so quickly that it is increasingly difficult to keep faculty updated on tools that make a difference in the classroom. Jim Rapoza - http://etech.eweek.com

New technologies rise and fall so quickly that it is increasingly difficult to keep faculty updated on tools that make a difference in the classroom.

How do we encourage faculty to try new technologies in the classroom?

Bloom’s Taxonomy

A Digital Bloom’s Taxonomy

http://www.serendipity35.net/index.php?/archives/1709-A-Digital-Bloom.html

As with any learning taxonomy… Higher levels do not occur without the “lower” levels being used first. Lower levels are not a negative label. It is best when progress is made to higher levels because of self-identified needs. Students can be powerful drivers for faculty adoption. Participants need to explore on their own, abandon what does not work for them, try things that do not work for others.
