About EduVision and The Conference Series

Free
SKU: IOEPS-6-9

The concept of EduVision embodies a vision for the enhancement of ed­ucation/training activities through the effective integration of technology, means and methods. In the context of growing recognition and appreciation of the critical role of technology in teaching and learning processes, EduVi­sion has become a shared vision of many in the Caribbean, and indeed the world. In 2003 this vision was developed into a forum for sharing ideas and technology innovations, and was subsequently launched in the form of an international conference on technology in education.

SKU: IOEPS-6-1

[See Reiser (1987) for early definitions of this term.] Whatever may be the interpreted or accepted meaning of the term "instructional technology", it should be appreciated that such meaning has been evolving, and perhaps will continue to evolve as new technologies continue to emerge.

$10.00
SKU: JEDIC-1702

The aim of this study was to examine how Microsoft PowerPoint is used by science teachers in Trinidad and Tobago and to gauge from teachers what considerations influence their decision to use PowerPoint presentations in their science teaching.
