  • How do you use technology now?
  • What helps?
  • What hinders?

Why Technology?
  • More than ever, individuals value the importance
    of technology changes in education.
  • Knowledge economy
  • nearly 90 percent of the upcoming workforce will
    utilize computers within their working
  • The U.S. Department of Education Education
    Technology Plan,
  • more computers and ubiquitous high-speed
    Internet access
  • need for digital content in the schools
  • Executive Summary

ISTE NETS Standards
  • International Society for Technology in Education
  • National Education Technology Standards
  • Students
  • Teachers
  • Administrators
  • 90 of states have adopted, adapted or referenced
    in their own state standards
  • ISTE is in the process of updating their standards

What Technology Has to Offer
  • Authentic challenging tasks
  • Active learning - students benefit from exposure
    to real world problems, scientific modeling,
    feedback from peers and experts and global

    Learning Through Technology

  • Appropriately deployed technologies could support
    exploration and help students obtain achievable
    goals, form and test hypotheses, and discover new
    knowledge. These constructivist applications of
    technologies apparently support developing
    higher-order thinking skills that can help
    students strive and succeed with real, open-ended
    questions, such as those that they will have to
    face, address, and conquer during their adult
    lives (Valdez et al., 2000).

    Standards-Based Content
  • Learning Technologies and Higher-Order Skills

Some Things to Consider for Quality Tech
  • Allows for different learning styles
  • Uses tasks that are intellectually
    demanding/require higher level thinking
  • Provides open-ended questions and activities
  • Requires more abstraction and complexity
  • Based on student interests
  • Requires student to be more self-directed
  • Uses Inquiry process
  • Develops problem finding and problem solving
  • Based on an authentic or real-world task(s)
  • Allows students to discover and uncover

What Technology IS
  • constructivist, higher level thinking,
    communication, creation of original work, and
    problem solving in non-routine ways and authentic
  • Technology as a means of providing support,
    opportunity and meaning.

Re-Thinking the Way We Do Things When Adding
Technology. . .
  • Be willing to learn from students
  • Teachers still have much to offer critical
    thinking, unlocking meaning, clear communication,
  • Teaching with technology can be transforming
  • Encourage student autonomy
  • Dual level of teaching content along with
    meta-cognition- learning how to learn
  • Learning is cumulative education is ongoing and
    doesnt end with a test
  • Welcome productive digressions
  • A lot of work build a collaborative team, and
    consider including students as part of the team

Changing the Process . . .
  • Math concepts
  • Virtual manipulatives
  • Science up to date information
  • Alternatives Net Frog
  • Research in real time
  • Newscasts (CNN)
  • Data (USGS)
  • Maps (TerraServer)
  • Analyzing for validity

Technology Rich Environments
  • identify essential questions and match learning
    needs to effective and efficient technology-rich
    learning environments.
  • apply technology tools to produce texts,
    illustrations, photographs, sounds, videos, and
    animations for use in teaching and learning.
  • identify, design, create, and facilitate learning
    spaces through the use of technologies such as
    email, forums, blogs, virtual conferencing,
    collaborative web/wikis, social networks, course
    management systems, desktop spaces, and

Integrating Technology How Do I Do That?
  • Technology can be used as a tool to differentiate
    Content, Process, Product, and Environment
  • Technology can be used in key components of
    differentiation readiness, interest, learning

Content, Process, Product . . .
  • Content
  • Everyone is learning the same concept, but using
    different levels of complexity, depth or
  • Process
  • Everyone is learning the same concept, but using
    different methods to learn it
  • Product
  • Everyone is using different ways of showing what
    they know.

Continuums for Planning Differentiated Lessons
These continuums can help you plan content,
process, and products for gifted learners, as
well as other learners with diverse needs. They
are not a recipe, but rather a guide for your
thinking. In general, students who are gifted in
a given subject or very advanced in a particular
topic need to function toward the right end of
the continuums. There will be exceptions, of
course. For example, a highly able learner may at
times need to work at a slower pace to study a
topic in greater breadth or depth. At the
beginning of a complex study, even a highly able
learner may need to work at simpler tasks, toward
the left of the continuums will need to move
toward the right. Simple

  • Groups can be based on interest, readiness,
    learning styles, or ability
  • Groups are temporary for one unit, assignment, or
  • Teacher assigns when matching to criteria
  • Readiness for skill or content, interest
  • Ensuring mix of students
  • Students select when appropriate
  • Clear guidelines for group functioning

Independent Projects
  • Can be structured or open-ended, depending on
    readiness of student
  • Builds on student interest
  • Include computer as tool for content, process or
  • Teacher provides guidance and structure
  • Provide criteria for success

Who Does Research?What kinds of questions would
these people ask?
Interest Centers
  • Build on student interest
  • Students can help in the process of development
  • Clear criteria for success
  • Challenging level of tasks
  • Interest based groups
  • Using a computer station as a learning center
  • Adding computer tasks to a learning center

  • 1) Pre-assessment
  • 2) Plan for learning what was missed and excuse
    what is mastered
  • 3) Plan how free time may be spent
  • Allow student choice in how time is spent
  • Written plans and guidelines

  • Target some questions and leave others open to
  • Open-ended questions when possible
  • Wait time
  • Think- pair-share
  • Encourage building on previous answers
  • Encourage students to explain and defend
  • Adjust difficulty of question based on student

Tiered Lessons
  • Not an introduction, but probably after whole
    group instruction so basics are understood
  • Same concept, objective, or essential question,
    but different levels Avoid tasks that can be
    copied from a source
  • Organize by Blooms Taxonomy, concrete to
    abstract, scaffolding, depth, complexity,

Steps to Designing Tiered Lessons
  • Identify the grade level and subject for which
    you will write the lesson.
  • Identify the standard (national, state, district,
    etc.) that you are targeting.
  • Identify the key concept and generalization.
  • Be sure students have the background necessary to
    be successful in the lesson. Provide needed
  • Determine in which area you will tier.
  • Content, process, product
  • determine the type of tiering you will do
  • Readiness, interest, learning profile
  • based on your choices above, determine how many
    tiers you will need and develop the lesson.
  • Differentiation means doing something
    different--qualitatively different
  • Secondly, be sure each tier is doing moderately
    challenging, respectful work. We dont want one
    group doing blackline practice sheets and another
    doing Japanese cooking!
  • develop the assessment component to the lesson.
  • formative, summative, or a combination of both.
  • For more information on tiering, please contact
    the Center for Gifted Studies and Talent
    Development at 1-800-842-4251.

How Can Technology Assist in the Following Areas?
  • Find sources of information that are appropriate
    for students who may have difficulty reading.
  • Provide advanced organizers to help students
    receive and communicate information.
  • Provide management plans in which tasks are
    listed sequentially with target dates for
  • Finally, provide a structure or visual format to
    guide the finished product. A sketch of an essay
    or science project board will enable these
    students to produce a well-organized product.
  • Use technology to promote productivity. It allows
    students with learning disabilities to hand
    in work of which they can feel proud.
  • Offer a variety of options for communication of
  • Help students who have problems in short-term
    memory develop strategies for remembering. The
    use of mnemonics, especially those created by
    students themselves, is one effective strategy to
    enhance memory. Visualization techniques have
    also proved to be effective.

    studied (as in the case of memoirs) and they
    reflect the individual viewpoint of a participant
    or observer
