While looking for Math prep exercises, I came across a lesson plan. The initial phasing impressed me.
“As a result of my instruction, when the students are presented with a multiplication problem they will be able to find the answer to the problem with out any teacher assistance and students will answer at least 98 to 95% correctly.”
What if we changed that to “As a result of my instruction and with the use of technology, students will ….”?
How do we scaffold students’ learning so that they are successful in demonstrating the learning? How do we use technology to help them climb the learning ladder to the top?
Do we administer a pre-test via technology?
Do we provide students with pre-requisite background information through the use of technology?
Do we model the learning with technology?
Do we guide students through the learning steps by using technology?
Do we provide them with guided practice through the use of technology?
Do we check for understanding by using technology?
Do we provide independent practice through technology-infused experiences?
Do we provide students with closure through the use of technology?
So how do you use technology to ensure that students will successfully learning the selected standard?
