Hanh Nguyen Dietel-McLaughlin Annotated Bibliography Friday March 28, 2014 I am interested in how the information age is affecting

high school classrooms in todays society because I have a personal connection to it. The beginning of my school years was also when digital technology was implemented in classrooms. I want to find out if the learning in the informational age has improved from the industrial age. My research question mostly revolves around the topic of integrating digital technology in high school classrooms and if the integration has either been beneficial to students or not. My paper will mostly revolve around high school and will touch briefly on the years before and after that to show the how the students came into high school and how they progressed on. Ciampa, K. "Learning in a Mobile Age: An Investigation of Student Motivation." Journal of Computer Assisted Learning 30.1 (2014): 82-96. Print. Ciampa is a from the teacher education department at Brock University in Ontario Canada. This article is about a case study that was conducted to view the experience of a sixth grade teacher and her students as they are using tablets (iPads and iPods) in their classroom environment. The article describes how students react to intrinsic and extrinsic motivation for learning. The data shown in the article describes the constructive environment that the sources of technology has on the students. The teachers were able to view the students progress immediately after they had finished their activity on the tablet and students were able to redo their assignment if they find that they can improve based on the feedback. This article is similar with other sources in describing the effects technology has on students. It also describes the necessity of a moderator that can give guidance between the students and the technology. This source is creditable as it is printed in an academic journal, although the case study was performed on elementary students, the data still have reference to my research paper as a background tool. Davis, N., B. Eickelmann, and P. Zaka. "Restructuring of Educational Systems in the Digital Age from a Co-Evolutionary Perspective." Journal of Computer Assisted Learning 29.5 (2013): 438-50. Print. The journal article is by Eickelmann from the University of Paderborn, Germany, Davis and Zaka from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. The article is about the restructuring of the education system globally to be integrated in the information age. It shows that as digital technologies have evolved so must education. The article also shows the evolution of education must also have the foundation support of educators. The data are from case studies conducted in New Zealand and the United States shows that as education evolves with digital technology, teachers will always be the key to students learning in the information

age. This article has parallel views with other sources in agreement with the understanding that teachers will always be the foundation of a students learning. This journal article is from a creditable source and the authors use data and facts to defend their claim on evolving education into the digital age Sireci, Stephen G., and Ellen Forte. "Informing in the Information Age: How to Communicate Measurement Concepts to Education Policy Makers." Educational Measurement: Issues & Practice 31.2 (2012): 27-32. Print. The author, Sireci is from the University of Massachusetts Amhurst and Forte is from edCount, LLC. The article is about how to present statistical data and its analysis to educational policy makers. It talks about how data from standardized tests are collected and how it is very limited in providing information to the audience. The article also talks about how one would present the data to the policy makers and the targeted audience. This source is beneficial to my research in showing how educational policy makers come to a conclusion on reforms and advancement on classrooms. This gives me an insight on how they have decided on the integration of digital technology in education and the effect that it would have on teachers and students. It does not relate on the views of how digital technology is affecting classroom production but it gives statistical insight on the decision making process. Surgenor, E. W. The Gated Society : Exploring Information Age Realities for Schools. Lanham : Rowman & Littlefield Education : Published in partnership with the American Association of School Administrators, 2009. Print. Everette Surgenor is a former teacher and superintendent before retiring and wrote The Gated Society. The book is about the public education system in North America and how the reforms on education have done little to improve progress on students. The book describes mostly how education is seen as being stuck in the industrial age at the beginning of the twenty-first century and what should be done to move the public education system into digital literacy in the future. This is have both views on education in todays society, Surgenor talks about the need for technology and the beneficial effects it has on the classroom but she also talks about how there is not enough integration of digital technology. Most of my sources agree with the beneficial components that technology has on students but disagrees on the lack of technology in classrooms. This book is useful in some counterarguments on whether the technology should be more implemented in classrooms. Sutherland, R. R. "Interactive Education: Teaching and Learning in the Information Age." Journal of Computer Assisted Learning 20.6 (2004): 410-2. Print. In this journal article John (Professor at the University of Plymouth, UK), Robertson, and Sutherland (both graduate students from the University of Bristol) assesses how teaching and learning have changed in the information age. The

article mainly focuses on the effect of integrating ICT (information and communications technology) into the classroom environment. It describes how students are able to proceed on investigating and researching for hours on ICTs but without the guidance of teachers the information is idiosyncratic between the students. This shows that teachers are still the crucial instruments in the classroom. Without teachers students may be able to learn all the information they can but they would have no way of organizing it. This has a very similar view with my other sources, ICT are the best tools we have in information but without teachers and instructors, there is no way in comprehending that information. This article is beneficial to my research as it supports my argument and is from creditable background. Zickuhr, Kathryn. "Teens and Tech: What the Research Says." Young Adult Library Services 12.2 (2014): 33-7. Print. In the journal article, Kathryn Zickuhr, a research associate from the Pew Research Centers Internet and American Life Project writes about her research in how teenagers are using and responding to technology today. Her research mainly focuses on teenagers response in utilizing the public libraries; the data are based on the projects conducted by the Pew Research Center by other researchers. The article shows the impact that technology has towards high school and college students. The argument that is made by Zickuhr is about the positive reaction teenagers are having with the public library system. Teenagers uses of the public library are concurrent with other age group of patrons. This article has a similar view with other sources agreeing that the technology has a positive affect on teenagers and the need for teachers and librarians are still at high demand. This article is creditable considering it is from the Pew Research Center and the author of the article is also a researcher from there.
