3 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.
4 Why incorporate technology into my classroom? ANY GIVENPROBLEM“We, as teachers, are preparing students for careers that don’t exist and haven’t even been thought of yet.”-Karl FischAs a result, students need to become;1. intelligent problem solvers2. responsible, socially aware citizens who are prepared to live and succeed in the world.
5 It’s their future . . . if we aren’t teaching it, we aren’t truly preparing our students.
6 How is it really helping? “I’m using PowerPoint, isn’t that enough?” Teacher Driven TechnologyBenefits: passive learners, quieter, easier to maintain control, guide instruction towards teacher chosen goalsNegatives: passive learners, usually lacks intrinsic motivationStudent Driven TechnologyBenefits: built-in motivation, collaboration, teaching by “pull” not “push”, problem solving, access at homeNegatives: noisier, requires more teacher prep

48 What’s 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.
