Three Working Models to Integrate Technology in Your Teaching

Three Working Models to Integrate Technology in Your Teaching | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

"Technology is obviously an essential element in our instructional toolkit. Knowing how and when and for what purposes to use this technology is much more important than the technology itself...

An important step in the process of effective integration of technology in education is having a pedagogical approach supported by a theoretical framework to ground your technology practices inside the classroom."

Technology is a tool. When to use, how to use it, why you use...these are some of the questions that each of us must consider. To help us effectively integrate technology it is helpful to have a pedogogical background or framework. This post explores three approaches:

* SAMR Model - Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefintion

* TPACK - Content Knowledge, Pedagogical Knowledge, Technological Knowledge and the overlapping knowledges that occur: TP Knowledge which helps us understand how to make content more accessible; TC Knowledge which helps us pair or combine appropriate technology to content; and PC Knowledge which allows us to pair pedagogy with content.

* Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs paired with Technology

This article presents a great overview of all three of these pedagogical approaches, and all have been covered in this Scoop.it so if you are looking for additional information do a search here.

Framework for Professional Development: SAMR Template & Infographic

Framework for Professional Development: SAMR Template & Infographic | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

"My colleague, Silvana Meneghini, and I have been working on developing a Professional Development framework for embedding technology use and modern learning litercies based on Ruben Puentedura's SAMR model.

The template consists of 4 Focus Areas. Each stage of the SAMR model consists of 4 focus areas in the template, that support vision, planning, and evaluation in activity and task design as well as a professional development framework."

Beth Dichter's insight:

If you are considering using the SAMR model to design lesson plans/units you should consider checking out this post. There is a very detailed template that helps you walk through the steps and consider how to best design your lesson/unit. The template is detailed and you may download it as a pdf. An example is included.

Many are turning to the SAMR model as a guide to integrate technology into their curriculum. If this model is new to you search this Scoop.it or type SAMR in your favorite search engine and you will find a wide variety of resources.
