Educational Transformation Through Technology

Posted by Nick Jones on Wed, Oct, 22, 2014 @ 08:10 AM

Olympic College in Bremerton, WA has recently installed a classroom designed to fully invoke the students' senses - seaming group learning, technology, and traditional teaching methods to maximize course effectiveness. Since it's introduction at MIT in the late 90's, the TEAL environment (Technology Enhanced Active Learning), has proven it's merits time and again.  Faced with low attendance and high failure rates in freshman physics, professors looked outside the box to engage students of varying levels of knowledge with the often abstract material. It began with interactive engagement, a new method which delivered promising results compared to traditional lecture-and-test style teaching.  Instructors found that when working in groups, more advanced students could bring struggling peers up to speed, while cementing their own understanding at the same time.  By shortening lectures and spending more time with hand-on activites, discussion, and experiments, students were more motivated than ever and test scores were up.

Collaboration in the Classroom

Posted by Lauren Moffett on Tue, Jan, 14, 2014 @ 11:01 AM

The classroom has changed vastly within the last ten years. Anyone who attended school before the year 2000 will remember chalkboards (and the subsequent chalk dust that accompanies their use), one computer per classroom, and field trips to the school's computer lab. Lessons were based out of hand-me-down textbooks and graphing calculators were the highest level of technology you were able to get your hands on. Students used CDs to transfer information from computer to computer (floppy disks were also a popular means of doing so) and the Google homepage looked like this:

The right furniture can be the key to healthier working and learning

Posted by Jerry Doll on Tue, Oct, 18, 2011 @ 13:10 PM

Wherever you work with a computer, be it at an office, in a classroom, or at a desk in a cubicle, your furniture can either work with you to increase your productivity or work against you to the point that your health is adversely affected.

When your neck is hurting, or you are experiencing numbness in your fingers, is far too late to consider the shortcomings of your current work area's furniture. Fortunately, common sense has much to say when it comes to picking the best working set up for using a computer for hours at a time.
