Evaluating Effective Classroom Technology Usage
It is easy to walk into a classroom and see that a teacher has something displayed on an interactive whiteboard, but how do you really assess what type of learning is taking place? During this session, we will examine the utilization of Interactive Whiteboards, Laptops/Chromebooks, and iPads/Tablets into classroom instruction. Participants will leave this session able to apply two model frameworks for the integration of technology into classroom curriculum and content: SAMR and T-PACK. We will look at effective tools for evaluation: lesson planning templates and rubrics. If you are concerned that your school technology investments may be underutilized, or you want to highlight your great technology pioneers, this session is for you.
