Title: Technology in the College Classroom: Education
Author: Edited by Mark Girod & J. P. Steed
Description: Thought and energy are invested in planning and delivering instruction in all corners of most universities. In no place, however, are instructors as commonly thoughtful or articulate about their efforts as in a college of education. This is due, naturally, to an emphasis on pedagogy and the modeling of pedagogy for education majors. Because of this, some of our most fascinating stories about technology and its use in the college classroom come from education faculty. In selecting and soliciting essays to be included in this volume, the editors encountered two interesting issues. First, essays in the education volume are the only ones in which acquiring technology skills and integrating them into one’s own teaching practice, is the chapter emphasis. Few other disciplines hold “learning technology skills” as an objective. Second, perhaps because of the first issue, many chapter authors are employed as “educational technologists” or hold some similar title that denotes expertise in thinking about technology-supported pedagogy. These issues contributed, in our opinion, to fairly sophisticated psychological and pedagogical perspectives on what it means to use and learn technology in education courses.

This volume contains ten essays, each describing teaching and learning content that is familiar to most education faculty. For example, essays describe learning about social and cultural diversity for the goal of adopting more democratic teaching methods, how to identify and make appropriate recommendations for assistance of students with special needs, as well as how to use technology in one’s own classroom.
