The College of Education and Professional Studies at UW-River Falls has selected a new group of students to serve on its Technology Leadership Cadre for the 2004-05 academic year.
The purpose of the TLC is to provide hands-on learning by integrating technology into area schools as well as technology support for UW-RF students and instructional staff. For example, the students participated in a workshop for area teachers held on campus Oct. 16. Members also attend weekly workshops designed to assist students in creating multimedia portfolios that will aid in school placement upon graduation.
The cadre is directed by Deb Allyn, associate professor of health and human performance; Leland Lueck, teacher education lecturer; and Karen Ryan, director of the Technology Education Center.
The group is funded by a Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
Cadre members are trained to provide assistance in various areas, including Internet searching methods, HTML and web site software, online learning software, spreadsheet, desktop publishing, and imaging software and hardware such as scanners, CD writers, and digital still and video cameras. The cadre also creates handouts for available campus software that are distributed and made available on its web site.
