1The Technology Integration Planning Model Mary MonroeFall 2007MEDT 3401
2An Overview of the TIP Model This model “gives teachers a general approach to addressing challenges involved in integrating technology into teaching”.“The TIP Model provides a helpful guide on procedures and issues to address” (p. 52).
3An Overview of the TIP Model “Each of the model’s five phases outlines a set of planning and implementation steps that help ensure technology use will be efficient and successful in meeting needs” (p. 52).
4Phase 1: Determine Relative Advantage Recognize relative advantagePhase 1 QuestionsWhat is the problem I am addressing?Do not focus on technologiesLook for evidenceDo technology-based methods offer a solution with sufficient relative advantages?
5Phase 1: Determine Relative Advantage Estimate the impactConsider the required effort and expense
6Phase 2: Decide on Objectives and Assessments Example outcomes, objectives, and assessmentsHigher achievement, cooperative work, attitude, and improved outcomePhase 2 QuestionsWhat outcomes do I expect from using the new methods?Focus on results, not process
7Phase 2: Decide on Objectives and Assessments Make a statement observable and measurableWhat are the best ways of assessing these outcomes?Use written test to assess skill achievement outcomesUse evaluation criteria checklists to assess complex tasks or productsUse rubrics to assess complex tasks or products
8Phase 2: Decide on Objectives and Assessments Use Likert scale-type surveys or semantic differentials to assess attitude outcomesUse observation instruments to measure frequency of behaviors
9Phase 3: Design Integration Strategies Deciding on teaching/learning methodsUse directed and constructivist strategiesPhase 3 QuestionsWhat kinds of instructional methods are needed in light of content objectives and student characteristics?
10Phase 3: Design Integration Strategies Content approachGrouping approachWhole class, individual, pairs, and small groupHow can technology best support these methods?Refer back to Phase 2How can I prepare students adequately to use technologies?Prepare and teach students before graded product
11Phase 4: Prepare the Instructional Environment Essential conditions for effective technology usesAdequate hardware, software, and mediaTime to use resourcesSpecial needs of studentsPlanning for technology usePhase 4 Questions
12Phase 4: Prepare the Instructional Environment What equipment, software, media, and materials will I need to carry out the instructional strategies?ComputersCopies of software and mediaAccess to peripheralsHandouts and other materialsHow should resources be arranged to support instruction and learning?
13Phase 4: Prepare the Instructional Environment Access by students with disabilitiesPrivacy and safety issuesWhat planning is required to make sure technology resources work well?TroubleshootingTest-runs and backup plans
14Phase 5: Evaluate and Revise Integration Strategies Evaluation issuesWere objectives achieved?What do students say?Could improving instructional strategies or the environment improve results?Have I integrated technology well?Phase 5 Questions
15Phase 5: Evaluate and Revise Integration Strategies How well has the technology integration strategy worked?Achievement and attitude dataStudents’ commentsWhat could be improved to make it work better?SchedulingTechnical skillsEfficiency
