Learning to Solve Problems with Technology: A Constructivist Perspective

Front Cover
Rather than focus on technology as a tool toteach with, this book stresses that technology-video, hypermedia, the Internet, etc.-is an excellent tool tolearn with. The emphasis is on learning to solve problems. By concentrating on problem solving with several specific media, the authors show how a variety of technologies can be used to engage students in personally and socially constructed meaning. They address the Internet, and how it can be used to foster community building; video, and how naturally students take to being behind the camera; and multimedia, as a new form of interactive literacy. The Internet material also includes a section on creating a personal or group website, plus coverage of cybermentoring. For teachers in computer classes and media centers-of students at all grade levels.
