ASU Education Faculty Participate in Childhood Education Conference
Three members of the Angelo State University education faculty made presentations last week at the 2004 annual conference of the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI) in New Orleans.
Dr. Marcia L. Broughton and Dr. Marilyn J. Eisenwine spoke on "It's More than Jazz: Meaningful Technology Applications for Early Childhood." They demonstrated classroom technology applications used by ASU graduate and undergraduate students as well as by elementary students in the San Angelo Independent School District and other area schools.
Dr. Cheryl Hines of ASU joined with Dr. Marie Plemons of the University of Houston-Victoria to examine "Literacy Centers at Work in the Early Childhood through Fourth Grade Classroom." They discussed ways to utilize classroom space, promote independent learning and assess the progress for students through the fourth grade.
