LEARNING TARGETS: I can identify reasons to incorporate technology into my classroom. I can create a list of technologies that will be useful to my students. I can collaborate and organize my individually chosen technologies into Purpose Categories. I can develop a Game Plan for implementation within my classroom.
Why incorporate technology into my classroom? We, as teachers, are preparing students for careers that dont exist and havent even been thought of yet. -Karl Fisch As a result, students need to become; 1. intelligent problem solvers 2. responsible, socially aware citizens who are prepared to live and succeed in the world. ANY GIVEN PROBLEM
Its their future... if we arent teaching it, we arent truly preparing our students.
How is it really helping? Im using PowerPoint, isnt that enough? Teacher Driven Technology –Benefits: passive learners, quieter, easier to maintain control, guide instruction towards teacher chosen goals –Negatives: passive learners, usually lacks intrinsic motivation Student Driven Technology –Benefits: built-in motivation, collaboration, teaching by pull not push, problem solving, access at home –Negatives: noisier, requires more teacher prep

Whats My Plan? On the back of your paper, identify 3 goals to begin integrating more technology with your students. Remember- Think SMALL! We are each more likely to attempt a goal if it is reasonable. We all have busy lives, be realistic.
