Welcome Vance County 1:1 Teachers September 21, 2011 Southern Vance High School
Goals of the Professional development The goal of this professional development session is to present current technology integration strategies to teachers to use while planning a lesson. Teachers will follow the six stages of the Technology Integration Planning Model as they plan a technology-based lesson specific to their content area.
This model is designed to help teachers (especially those new to technology) plan for effective classroom uses of technology.
Exploring the TPACK Framework TPACK Jigsaw Activity
From the VCS Moodle Site, go to Instructional Technology 1:1 Professional Development VCS TPACK Domain Sign-Up
Select one of the seven knowledge domains to serve as an “expert” on; click Save My Choice
Go back to the 1:1 Professional Development Moodle TPACK Collaboration
Click on your appropriate knowledge domain and digitally collaborate with your colleagues to complete the four prompts on the documents
Are You the Total PACKage? TPACK Self-Assessment To be critical consumers of technology, all teachers need to be explicitly aware of their knowledge development within the TPACK framework.
Take the “Am I the Total PACKage?” survey
Associate the assigned point values for each statement in order to determine your score for each domain
Refer back to the appropriate TPACK Collaboration pages on Moodle to complete the questions on the back of your survey
In order to effectively plan for technology use, the teacher must first identify the instructional problem that exists and determine whether or not a technology-based solution would be better than other ways of addressing the problem.
POSSIBLE INSTRUCTIONAL PROBLEMS THAT CAN BE SOLVED USING TECHNOLOGY
You can use more than one within your lesson, if needed.
Planning a Technology-Based Lesson Once you’ve selected your technology tool(s)…
Go to 1:1 Professional Development on Moodle and open the file Technology Lesson Plan
Planning a Technology-Based Lesson
On the template, plan the entire lesson based on your content area, pedagogy and technology tool(s)
Once your lesson plan is complete, SAVE it to your computer.
Upload your lesson to the Moodle section, Technology-Based Lesson Plans under the appropriate content area.
The last stage of the TIP model requires you to evaluate your lesson’s effectiveness in addressing your chosen instructional problem. Implement your technology lesson some time THIS semester and we will revisit this Evaluation stage during the first professional development session of next semester (2/8/12)
