Integrate It

Integrate Google into your Classroom

Our task will be to find a way to integrate something Google into our professional practice or into our classroom instruction.  

It is essential that at this point, we talk about how we add technology in to our daily practice or integrate it into our instruction in the most effective and efficient way.  using technology just for the sake of using it in not our goal BUT using technology to make our work and practice better, more efficient and effective, and to do things we could have never done before..... that is the goal!!!

Understanding Levels of Technology Implementation

The SAMR tool was designed to: 
1.  help educators integrate technology into their instruction, student thinking and as learning tools.
2.  understand the levels of rigor involved in that work.  
3.  allow educators to build their capacity and understanding to successfully implement technology into instruction.
4.  help educators reflect on their use of technology in instruction

Definition:  Technology acts as direct tool substitute with no functional improvement.

Example:  Work can be completed without the use of the technology, including: word processing, digital worksheets, submitting essays and worksheets; printed assignments.

Remembering / Comparing
Bloom's Taxonomy

Definition: Technology allows for significant task redesign.

Example:  Work requires students to effectively search for and collect online resources that they share with the teacher and other students (ex: online academic bookmarking, online discussions); students regularly collaborate (either face-to-face or digitally) with other students and/or experts; students communicate with others about their learning. Students begin to use their ‘voice' to share their learning ideas with the teacher.

Definition: Technology acts as direct tool substitute with functional improvement.

Example: Work requires technology to be completed, including: Digital worksheets that require students to collect online information or resources provided by the teacher; worksheets submitted to teacher’s electronic/digital drop-box. Students may begin online communication or collaboration with other students (ex:  online discussion.

Skills & Concept Development
Webb's Depth of Knowledge
Bloom's Taxonomy

Definition:  Technology allows for the creation of new tasks that were previously inconceivable.

Example: Work requires students to create new ideas, thoughts, understandings, projects, or products; students share these with others (either in class, across campus, in the community, or with others around the world).Students use online tools to display the results of their work, to compare results, and to develop deeper levels of understanding. Students have a regular ‘voice’ in developing the classroom learning culture.

PictureApplication Project .....Please Access this through Google Classroom

Look at your curriculum, lessons, and instruction OR your professional responsibilities and determine a lesson, project, or a professional task that you could use a Google tool from one of the Going Google Sessinos that we have learned about to Enhance or Transform.  You will be asked to complete a template to share the lesson, the tool used, determine & explain your rubric rating and standards on this project based on SAMR and ISTE Standards for Students, and your reflection (successes / areas to change or develop) on the lesson or application.
