xFrom: Marilyn Schaffer <MSCHAFFER@HARTFORD.BITNET> UNIVERSITY OF HARTFORD International Center for Education and Technology SPECIAL SUMMER INSTITUTES Technology and Classroom Innovation Please Join Us! Two special institutes will bring teachers and administrators from our local region together with educators from the USA, Russia and Latin America to explore the potential uses of microcomputers and related technology in K-12 schools, as a means to enhance science, math, and technology and to advance global understanding. Participants will have opportunities to work with the scientists associated with our Center and to join our international network where they can continue to collaborate with us, as well as their fellow participants, over the coming year. Participants will meet with leaders in the uses of educational technology as a means to bring about classroom innovations such as Stephen Ocko, a chief developer of the LEGO T-C logo materials; Sylvia Charp, internationally respected advocate of the use of educational technology and editor-in-chief of T.H.E. Journal; and Boris Berenfeld of the former Soviet Union, leader in the use of technology, especially telecommunications, to improve school science. Each Institute will be conducted in a workshop format, with presentations, demonstrations, and time to work in the Education Computer Center each day. INSTITUTE I Administrators' Guide to the Use of Computer Technology in the Classroom This institute is designed to provide administrators with a forum in which to explore exemplary uses of technology to promote classroom innovation. Topics will include: Survey of "State-of-the-Art" Classroom Technology; Models of Staff Development; and Support in the Uses of Technology such as Telecommunications. Dates July 6-10, Monday-Friday; 9:00 am -4:00 pm INSTITUTE II Environmental Issues and Technology: Context for Global Collaboration In this Institute we will focus on the global implications of environmental issues, and we'll explore uses of technology that facilitate the active "doing" of science, the investigation of social issues, and the implementation of collaborative projects in which teachers and students work together to plan, discuss and share their work with peers in other countries. Dates July 13-24, Monday-Friday; 9:00 am -4:00 pm For further information please contact: Dr. Marilyn Schaffer, Director, International Center for Technology and Education, University of Hartford, West Hartford, CT 06117 TEL (203) 243-4277 FAX (203) 286-5043 Bitnet: mschaffer@hartford Internet: email@example.com Submitted to EDTECH by: Sally Laughon LAUGHON@VTVM1
