    This chart takes a more comprehensive look at the lesson. I like the idea of combining information of “on the state exam” and Bloom’s. I could also see it being used with goals of the district and the individual administrators.

    Though I’d like to think my score would high, I can’t say for certain. 🙂 I have no idea if my projects align with state exams. I guess I’ve never asked the teachers (I typically assume the teacher has already thought about this). After today, however, I can see that I do have to ask. I can no longer assume that teachers are always focused on standards and state exams. I think teachers often get sidetracked when faced with technology projects. I do know that a few of our *best* teachers have had very low “tech” scores on their yearly observations. the administration too, gets sidetracked when looking at technology use. We must keep in the mind that technology doesn’t make you a better teacher. Rather, if used properly, it can enhance your teaching.

    Again – not a teacher or tech integrator!!!

    1. The use of the online Biology sites that allow students to disect without using a real speciman has helped not only with learning what the needed to know but with some other issues like social, religious, etc.

    2.) The use of online databases for research helps the student and teacher to go to the “right” places for correct data. It also helps on the technical side in that they are WAY easier to administer. Another plus is that they also usually may be accessed from home.

    Again, this is based on the assumption that the lesson itself is meeting the school’s academic goal!

    This activity would help a teacher in the activities associated with planning a lesson.

    Bloom makes a teacher decide HOW to teach the concept, not just WHAT to teach.

    And then the question of how to use technology becomes integral to the planning.

    This was a real eye opener. I have always known that time on a task didn’t necesarily mean time well spent, but it is not always easy to visualize the time/quality relationship. This seems to be a simple way to analyze this relationship.

    While I do not agree with the state exam portion of it, I can see that section being modified by a school’s faculty/design team to define what skills/areas that are considered necessary learning.

    Looking back at some of my own projects, it is easy to see that some were not as worthwhile as others, and it is also easy to modify them to become more in depth and less time consuming (and who has spare instructional time!)

  • Tech Integration Teacher, What time is it? August 23, 2016

  • Digital Badges: Individual or Categorized Learning Badges? September 12, 2015
