Early Childhood Education
"Keystone was the right school for me. I learned so much that will benefit me both professionally and personally."
Research on Technology in the Classroom Will Benefit Future Educators
As a future educator, 2013 Keystone College graduate James Booth wants to learn everything he can about the best teaching methods available. That’s why James’ senior research project “Benefits of Incorporating the Use of Technology in the Classroom” was particularly relevant.
“As the use of technology increases, I think it is very important to examine the benefits of incorporating it into the classroom,” James says. “Knowing the ways in which technology can be employed will increase the resources available to educators and the benefits to their students.”
The project, completed under the supervision of Keystone College Associate Professor of Education Dr. James Gilhooley, will help James as he begins his career as an early childhood education teacher.
“It was really important to discover more about the many uses of technology and learn that an educator’s willingness to use technology often depends on his or her prior experience and training. I know this research will benefit me greatly as I begin my career and pursue a master’s degree in education. “Keystone was the right school for me. I learned so much that will benefit me both professionally and personally. It’s a great place to go to college.”
