GLEF Blast 2/10/04: From Hula to High Tech

This February, GLEF takes you on a field trip to Hawaii!

At Nuuanu Elementary School, outside of Honolulu, technology enhances the
curriculum for all grades.

The K-6 students strengthen writing skills as scriptwriters and book
reviewers for the school's daily student-run television broadcast. Social
studies projects include collecting oral histories and creating multimedia
biographies. Students use science and math to test local water quality,
posting the results on the school's Web site and sharing them with the
Hawaii Department of Health.

Read on for expanded coverage: article, video documentary, and multimedia
feature.

Please feel free to forward this e-mail and ask your colleages to
subscribe to the GLEF Blast!

1. From Hula to High Tech

Students at Nuuanu Elementary School benefit from a long legacy of
technology integration.

In 1989, then-principal Eleanor Fujioka insisted that the students have
access to technology -- which at that time meant one Commodore 64, passed
from classroom to classroom.

Today, the students run their own television station. They combine
creative writing with computer animation.

"In the past, they said, 'Just let the good students [use] the computers.'
But what about the majority of the students? ... We have to give every
child from K-6 in our school an opportunity to work with the technology,
to use it as a tool to support their learning," says Kelvin Chun, Nuuanu
technology director and a 2002 EdTech Leader of the Year.

Our coverage of this story includes:

* An article, From Hula to High Tech
< http://www.glef.org/1126 >

* A 7-minute Web documentary. (Note: Will play in QuickTime 5.0 or Windows
Media Player.)
< http://www.glef.org/1126 > - click on "play video"

* A multimedia feature, which uses two specific projects to examine how
Nuuanu uses technology and teamwork to engage students. Includes student
work, photos, audio clips, and curricular information.

2. Educators: GLEF materials make a world of difference in teacher
training and professional development!

"Teaching in the Digital Age: Project-Based Learning & Assessment includes
eight exemplary commentaries from nationally recognized educators and ten
exemplary mini-documentaries. It is a must see for every educator." --
Patsy Lanclos, Educational Technology Consultant

"Having access to rich materials in the Moving Images series has made a
world of difference in professional development activities for educational
leaders." -- Chris O'Neal, Virginia Educational Technology Alliance,
University of Virginia

Here at GLEF, we are delighted to hear quotes like this from people who
are using our videos, CD-ROMs, DVDs, and publications to illustrate what
successful teaching really looks like.

educational technology around the world.

How is Sweden using handhelds in the classroom? Do Indian children learn

Dr. Robert Kozma is in a position to know. A Fulbright Senior Specialist
and former consultant for the Ministries of Education in Thailand,
Singapore, and Chile, he has recently published a comparative study of
worldwide educational technology use. Dr. Kozma will discuss the results
