This book presents a rationale and an inquiry-based model for integrating computer technology into the classroom curriculum by using it as a tool for problem solving rather than as an instructional delivery device. The 10-step NTeQ model remains the same as in previous editions, but with refined concepts and increased emphasis on the role of teacher as designer. The book's approach stresses the student's use of the computer to solve real-world problems while learning. Features of the Third Edition: New Check It Out feature lists Web-based activities and examples that are directly related to examples given throughout the textbook.Power Tips provide ideas for using specific software or computer features and often include a listing of valuable resources. The Teacher's Diary offers practical tips, suggestions, and encouragement from K-12 teachers who are integrating computers into their classrooms. Chapters feature the ISTE NETS*T standards addressed by that chapter's content. Classroom scenarios highlight successful computer integration lessons that have been implemented by K-12 teachers. The Companion Website, http://www.prenhall.com/morrison , has been expanded and is integrated with the text.Morrison, Gary R. is the author of 'Integrating Computer Technology into the Classroom', published 2004 under ISBN 9780131421165 and ISBN 0131421166.
