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.

Knowing Content is NOT Enough
  • In order to be successful in the 21st Century,
    ALL 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

11
A Taxonomy for Integrating Technology into
Diverse Classrooms
  • Increasing Complexity of Technology Skills
  • Technology choices become autonomous
  • Increasing Levels of Cognition
  • Curriculum mastery deepens

12
How to Include ALL Students
  • Have students move through the taxonomy
    appropriate to their abilities.
  • 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
