Active: Students are actively engaged in using technology as a tool rather than passively receiving information from the technology.

Additional Levels: Entry Adoption Adaption Infusion

Level of Technology Integration Into the Curriculum

Transformation: The teacher creates a rich learning environment in which students regularly engage in activities that would have been impossible to achieve without technology Given ongoing access to online resources, students actively select and pursue topics beyond the limitations of even the best library.

Question to Answer
What is the potential of the technology to be transformative for your groups assigned TIM learning environment characteristic?

1. Direct the lecture; open-ended more engaging

Characteristics of the Learning Environment

Collaborative: Students use technology tools to collaborate with others rather than working individually at all times. Constructive: Students use technology tools to build understanding rather than simply receive information.

Technology enables students to collaborate with peers and experts irrespective of time zone or physical distances.

2. Asking provocative questions; brainstorming (anonymity)

Students use technology to construct, share, and publish knowledge to a worldwide audience.

3. Student moderator (another channel like twitter); feedback leads to new questions

Authentic: Students use technology tools to solve realworld problems meaninful to them rather than working on artificial assignments. Goal Directed: Students use technology tools to set goals, plan activities, monitor progress, and evaluate results rather than simply completing assignments without reflection.

By means of technology tools, students participate in outside-of-school projects and problem-solving activities that have meaning for the students and the community.

4. Students generate questions (practice dialouge and discourse)

Students engage in ongoing metacognative activities at a level that would be unattainable without the support of technology tools.

5. Students develop questions/responses; students evaluate questions developed; peer review (twitter rule)

7 Principles of How Learning Works (HLW)

1. Prior Knowledge: Students assess what they know and dont know, identify misconceptions, and take remediation steps as appropriate. 2. Knowledge Organization: Students reveal and enhance their knowledge organization. 3. Motivation: Students determine personal relevance and expectations for success.

Question to Answer
What is the potential of the technology to support your groups assigned principle from HLW? Explain your reasoning.

1. Quizzes before/after class or topics build on answers and apply them to something new; see change 2. Immediate reinforcement; use own device

4. Practice & Feedback: The student designs objects (e.g., flash cards, crossword puzzles, games, concept maps, tutorials, interactive lectures) that provide practice and give targeted feedback. 5. Mastery: Students integrate prior and new skills/knowledge and use in new ways. 6. Class Climate: Students lead/participate in discussions that enhance the exchange of ideas and challenge existing beliefs.

3. Student questions; rank questions; feed closing questions; use student moderator

4. Can make it safe for students to contribute via system and small groups; low stakes assignment 5. Students groups create questions and get feedback on their work/presentation; take real life roles

7. Self-Directed Learners: Students assess real life problems and use available resources to devise strategies and implement a plan that they evaluate and adjust.
