AbstractToday’s students have grown up in a world where technology is an essential and accessible component of daily life, and it therefore plays an integral role in the modern classroom. Implementing technology into the traditional classroom can be an intimidating task; this curriculum project aims to aid educators in understanding the benefits of using technology, and to simplify its implementation. Desmos and Nearpod are used in this curriculum because they are excellent examples of two user-friendly and adaptable applets that facilitate technology-focused instruction. Each of the two units in this curriculum are designed to assist teachers who use a limited amount of technology in understanding both how these applets function, and how they can be adapted for any content. Each lesson is student-paced, includes authentic problems, and has a variety of activities for the students to interact with their peers or with the applets themselves. Technology-focused instruction provides ineffable opportunities in the classroom, and the goal of this curriculum is to help teachers become more comfortable with technology in order to take advantage of those opportunities.

Smart Technologies in a Technology Classroom: Integration Investigation of Smart board and Smart Notebook into 7-12 Technology Education ClassroomOwens, Travis H. (2012-04-01)The project explores how the different uses of Smart technologies (Smart Board and Smart Notebook) can aide in teaching technology education and address New York State and ITEEA (International Technology and Engineering Educators Association) Standards for Technical Literacy during instruction by the creation of three Smart Notebook documents to be used in a 9-12 grade technology education classroom of 8-14 students. The lengths of the three presentations vary from 10-40 minutes. One presentation is used as a teacher presentation(and student note-taking) tool and demonstrates some of the affordances that Smart Notebook has over using a traditional whiteboard and markers or Microsoft Office Power Point. The second presentation explores interactivity and demonstrates how the interactive whiteboard can be used to increase student participation and motivation in the through the use of games, activities, and interactive websites. Lastly, Smart Notebook is utilized as an assessment tool; allowing the teacher to create questions from multiple resources. The project also covers a review of literature that attempts to explain why Smart Technologies have become so popular and are often credited to improve student learning. The literature review covers a few basic theories of student learning and informational technology and design that explain how content should best be created and structured so it is learner-friendly and effective.
An empirical study and simulation of EHR software in light of COVID-19Ali, Ayman (2021-05)The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for attention directed towards accurate and accessible disease surveillance. As eighty-five percent of all health data is now processed in electronic form, the healthcare industry is increasingly becoming dependent upon patient healthcare data to facilitate well-coordinated and efficient decisions in a timely manner. Electronic health records can be crucial in unearthing the health disparities found among disadvantaged communities in terms of treatment and patient care. By creating a cloud-based software solution, electronic health records will not only be able to share patient health information to multiple healthcare settings, but also provide earlier disease detection and intervention. While implementing telemedicine is proving to be advantageous in reducing physical contact and maintaining social distancing guidelines, much of the dismay from clinicians has been towards the challenges with clinical documentation and patient flow. The CDC has stressed the importance of sending electronic health record case reports to public health officials on countless occasions. The software that vendors create are by no means perfect. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to focus on minimizing disruptions and COVID-19 related errors when using the software. In order to devise software aimed at mining sufficient data and providing tools solely directed at patient care, medical practitioners and software vendors are in endless communication. Implementing the necessary features best suited to support the general population requires eradicating any sort of configuration that can contribute to patient harm. This research will look into the role of EHRs in improving data tracking and collection and whether or not this software can be relied upon in the current climate.
Google Glass In the ClassroomNicosia, Sylvia Navarro (2015-05-01)This project is a prototype application for Google Glass that would help horticultural students with the difficult task of plant identification. The main purpose is to determine if a wearable device, embedded with augmented reality, can enhance both teaching and learning, using Cognitive Theory principles, by improving engagement and motivation. The prototype was built using JustInMind, a prototyping application, which allows prototypes to run in Google Glass. Three students and two faculty members from the Horticultural Department tested the application; all concurred that this application had potential, as long as the underlying database was comprehensive.
