Three Working Models to Integrate Technology in Your Teaching

Three Working Models to Integrate Technology in Your Teaching | Tech in teaching |

"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 so if you are looking for additional information do a search here.

Here is a link to explain the SAMR model of technology in education. It goes from just swapping an iPad for a pencil, for example, to being able to do something that would have never been possible if the technology were not present. It is great for evaluating where you and your classroom skill levels are.

Helpful content coupled with a dash of inspiration for the many potential uses of thinglink in my classroom.
