iNtegrating Technology for inQuery NTeQ
Focus of the NTeQ Model A method for integrating computers in a lesson plan Computer used as a tool Encourage higher order thinking and processing activities Realistic context Open-end learning environment
NTeQ and the Teacher Teachers need to experience using the computer as a tool to learn new information. Experience learning the way we want students to learn Teachers need to understand the relationship between basic computer functions and student learning. Analyze computer functions to know how it can apply to student learning Teachers need to use their knowledge of student learning and technology to design, manage, and facilitate a student-centered, multidimensional learning environment.
NTeQ and the Student The student is actively engaged in learning process. The student assumes the role of a researcher. The student becomes technologically competent.
NTeQ and the Computer As a learning tool. An extension of what the student are able to do for themselves Computers become an integral part of the lesson Allows more time for discovery and research Use to manage, retrieve and manipulate data
NTeQ and the Lesson Student-centered Problem-based Authentic Dependent on the integration of technology Not used for every lesson Teacher analysis of lesson and outcomes will determine is technology integration will benefit student learning
NTeQ and the Environment The Activities Clearly defined Aligned to objectives Meet the needs of diverse learners Use resources Interdisciplinary The Rotation Efficient use of resources Student groups
NTeQ Lesson Plan Model Computer Functions Specify Problem Data Manipulation Results Presentation Specify Objectives Activities During Computer Use Activities Before Computer Use Activities After Computer Use Supporting Activities Assessment
How does the NTeQ Model compare with a traditional classroom? Discussion of Tables created to summarize this comparison.
NTeQ: Specify Objectives Based on standards, benchmarks or curriculum materials
NTeQ: Match Computer Functions Identify relationships between objectives and functions a computer can perform. Analyze…….spreadsheet or database Draw or design……..drawing or graphics software Appendix A in text for more
NTeQ: Specify the Problem NTeQ Lesson uses an inquiry or problem-based approach. Students provided or identify a problem to solve Problems can come from existing lesson plans Relevant, student can relate to and understand
NTeQ: Data Manipulation Students will gather data Observation Experimentation Internet search What are they expected to do with data based on lesson objectives Calculate averages, graph, sort, summarize
NTeQ: Results Presentation How will students present their knowledge? Written or oral reports Newspapers Posters Web pages Books
NTeQ: Activities During Computer Use How many computers are available? What activities will be completed on a computer? Clear expectations on how students will use technology
NTeQ: Activities Before Computer Use Activities to prepare for computer use to make time efficient and effective Search terms to use in an Internet search Organize data for graphing Outline before writing
NTeQ: Activities After Computer Use Reflective, higher-level thinking about data collected and manipulated Need to develop questions and a plan for encouraging the students to reflect and analyze
NTeQ: Supporting Activities Other activities required to accomplish the objective, but do not require use of the computer Silent reading Group discussion Teacher-lead discussion Use of manipulatives Important to consider for classroom with only a few computers.
