Technology Integration Matrix

The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students. The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, constructive, goal directed (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells as illustrated below.

A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers

A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
How about after you find the apps, do you know how to evaluate their pedagogic implications ? Are they educationally valid ? Do they target skills you want your students to work on ? Are they flexible enough to let students learn in different settings ? Are they student friendly ?
Via Ove Christensen, Dr. Laura Sheneman
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I've been asked several times for arubric that will help teachers select Apps.  Now I've found it!

Interesting application, but the content has the same trouble that many of the rubric available on the web: It says nothing:
Ove Christensen's comment, December 9, 2012 3:38 AM
Well I think you should see it as a help for reflection on apps and use of apps. No tools are doing the hard work for you but they help you to remember what to cover.
Jim Lerman's comment, December 9, 2012 2:44 PM
@Cristian...I don't see it the same way. The criteria, in my opinion, do provide a useful framework for judging the efficacy of a web app. The value in the criteria is implicit; if one shares the values inherently stated in the criteria (for example, "authentic practice of targeted skills"), then I think the criteria are indeed helpful. If the values and meaning of the criteria do no speak to you, the reader, then I can see where one could feel they do not say anything. As Ove says, "no tools are doing the hard work for you."

With developments in open assessment, open educational resources, open badges etc gathering pace, how to support consistent marking of evidence submitted for open assessment requires consideration. Rubrics can help to set out the learning outcomes and measurements for assessing work, and allow multiple assessors and / or assessors who do not know the person submitting evidence, to judge the work against. This article pulls together links to some example assessment rubrics and resources for creating your own rubrics.

On assessing for creativity: yes you can, and yes you should

On assessing for creativity: yes you can, and yes you should | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

"I tweeted yesterday an interesting news item in Erik Robelen’s blog in Education Week that a few states (Oklahoma, California, Massachusetts) are seriously looking into some sort of assessment of creative thinking as part of the whole 21st century skills/entrepreneurship movement. I think it is a great idea, with a lot of potential for leveraging change.

Now, of course, the naysayers are quick to say that you cannot measure creative thinking. This is silly: here is a rubric for doing so..."

Middle School and High School Collaboration Rubric | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Although this rubric, provided by UW-Stout, is focused on middle and high school collaboration, I think it could of great use in adult education as well.  Online classes often include collaborative projects.  Many adults (especially teachers) find interdepent collaboration difficult.   Would this help you learn just as it is? Would you feel comfortable with the language?

Development, Implementation, and Evaluation of a Grading Rubric for Online Discussions

Development, Implementation, and Evaluation of a Grading Rubric for Online Discussions | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
The Journal of Online Learning and Teaching...


Abstract


This paper discusses the development, implementation, and evaluation of a grading rubric for online discussions. Despite the growing popularity of grading rubrics and the parallel growth of online learning, there is a lack of research on the topic of grading online discussions. Grading discussions (sometimes called class participation) in an online learning environment can be particularly challenging. In this paper, the authors share their experience of creating and implementing a comprehensive grading rubric for online discussions that evaluates the following criteria: quantity, quality, timeliness, and writing proficiency. Student perceptions regarding the use of the discussion rubric are also analyzed and areas of future research are suggested.

Keywords: e-learning, assessment, student perceptions, participation guidelines, faculty expectations
