Pedagogical Foundations
  • Curriculum must drive the need for technology
    integration
  • Technology is the tool used to facilitate
    student-centered learning
  • Scaffolding technology skills has to occur prior
    to the expectation that students can make
    thoughtful choices about its appropriate use
  • Degree to which students can utilize technology
    is also dependent upon their level of cognitive
    ability.

9
Our Vision
  • All students, teachers, and administrators will
    be able to be creative, communicate, collaborate,
    and problem solve in a productive and ethical
    manner.

Knowing Content is NOT Enough
  • Students must be able to
  • Construct new understandings
  • Solve problems
  • Make decisions
  • Communicate and express themselves
  • Understand complex issues
  • Work collaboratively
  • Set goals and work to a timeline
  • Make ethical choices
  • Be creative and innovative

14
A Taxonomy for Integrating Technology
  • Increasing Complexity of Technology Skills
  • Technology choices become autonomous
  • Increasing Levels of Cognition
  • Curriculum mastery deepens

15
How to Erase Technology
  • Have students move through the taxonomy
  • As students acquire the skills of using a
    technology.
  • It becomes a tool they may choose
  • The emphasis of an activity shifts from the
    technology to the cognitive skills students must
    employ
  • Becomes invisible

Planning Documents
  • Year Long Plan
  • Being Creative
  • Curriculum Map
  • What are 21st century skills?
  • What are technologies you / your students can
    use?
  • What are your current integration activities?

18
Observing
  • Students are passive spectators of technology
  • Students view PowerPoint during lecture
  • Teacher uses Interactive Whiteboard during
    lecture
  • Students view websites on large screen
  • Students listen to a podcast

19
Incorporating
  • Students are leveraging technology to increase
    productivity
  • Type papers using Word
  • Make graphs with Excel
  • Online Searches
  • Calculators
  • Tutorials

20
Producing
  • Students create a product with a single
    technology
  • Students record a podcast
  • Students make a movie
  • Poster session in PowerPoint

21
Exploring
  • Students engage in discovery learning prior to
    formal instruction
  • Students use online applet to learn about a topic
  • Students conduct a lab with probes

22
Collaborating
  • Students interact with peers, instructors, and
    outside resources
  • Students make group contributions in text format
    to a Wiki
  • Students work together on a Google Doc
  • Web 2.0 Tools mindomo, VoiceThread, etc.
  • Student email - Gaggle

23
Applying
  • Students are guided to combine and integrate
    technologies
  • Students use Excel, Probes and Accompanying
    Software, and Photobooth in Notebook to create
    lab report
  • Students use PowerPoint to make slides to import
    into iMovie
  • Students add movies, MP3s and images into a Wiki

24
Creating
  • Students are making sound choices about the
    appropriate synthesis of content and technology
    into a final product
  • Students are given an assignment and must choose
    the format for communicating information

25
Getting Teachers to Integrate
  • Ways to Use Technology
  • Personal and Professional Use
  • Instructional Enhancement
  • Observing in the Taxonomy
  • Using with Students

26
How to Integrate Technology
  • Know your kids
  • What are their strengths and weaknesses
  • What technologies are available?
  • Look for Connections between curriculum goals and
    technology

27
Assessing Technology Integrated Projects
  • What are the goals / objectives of the project?
  • Curricular
  • Skills
  • Technology
  • Develop a rubric
  • Curriculum Focus should be first
  • Need a rubric area to deal with technology aspect
  • Collaboration
  • Problem Solving
  • Communication

28
How to get Students to be Creative
  • Creating the Canvas
  • Word, PowerPoint, Inspiration, Wikis, Google
    Docs
  • Learning to Paint
  • User Created Content Podcasts, Movies, Animoto,
    Mapping
  • Creative Process
  • Instructional Design Be Vague

29
How to Erase Technology
  • Have students move through the taxonomy
  • As students acquire the skills of using a
    technology.
  • It becomes a tool they may choose
  • The emphasis of an activity shifts from the
    technology to the cognitive skills students must
    employ
  • Becomes invisible
