To assist every student in crossing the digital divide by ensuring that every student is technology literate by the time the student finishes the eighth grade, regardless of the student's race, ethnicity, gender, family income, geographic location, or disability. -- No Child Left Behind, Title II, Part D
Title II Part D (NCLB) TEKS – all subject areas should include technology integration 1. While there are references to the use of digital technology in all required curriculum, the Technology Applications Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)are to be used to effectively integrate technology across the curriculum.
Technology Integration Is Not: Taking students to the computer lab once a week for 40 minutes. Using the computer as an electronic worksheet. Using the computer as a reward station for students who are finished with their other assignments.
Technology Integration Is Not: Accelerated Reader, Math Blaster, WebAchiever. Every student typing one PowerPoint a year, no matter what! What the teacher is doing with the technology.
We must prepare learners for theirfuture, not for our past. -- David Thornburg A vision of K-12 Students
Joke Rip Van Winkle awakens in the 21st century after a hundred-year snooze and is, of course, utterly bewildered by what he sees. Men and women dash about, talking to small metal devices pinned to their ears. Young people sit at home on sofas, moving miniature athletes around on electronic screens. Older folk defy death and disability with metronomes in their chests and with hips made of metal and plastic. Airports, hospitals, shopping malls – every place Rip goes just baffles him. But when he finally walks into a schoolroom, the old man knows exactly where he is. “This is a school,” he declares. “We used to have these back in 1906. Only now the blackboards are green (Miranda, et al, 2006, 1).
21st Century Skills Personal and social responsibility Planning, critical thinking, reasoning, and creativity Strong communication skills Cross-cultural understanding Visualizing and decision-making Knowing how & when to use technology
Steps to Integration Begin with the end in mind. How will learning be different? How will teaching be different? Model integration Encourage integration Challenge integration Encourage YOUR teachers to learn!! Feel free to modify and share to meet your needs.

The importance of visuals/images Text (books) = sequential Images = non-sequential Images, visuals help better learning and connecting Images & visuals in technology EVERYWHERE
Brain Rule # 10: Vision trumps all other senses.
drifted The fog the mountain on over trees… pine the tall Words are processed sequentially.
Did you ever see something in a split secondthat will remain with you forever?
We are drawn to images Not words: Adorable, Cute, Cuddly, Soft
Not text Lonely, Destitute, Homeless, Abandoned Even text that is colorful and bright.
Any questions so far???? NEXT, Explore & start “doing” something rather than talking about it doing something…..

UBD Understanding By Design 3 Stages http://www.grantwiggins.org/ubd/ubd.lasso MY Overview….. Start with the End in Mind Plan GOOD questions for the day/lesson (arguable, adult life like) Get them thinking Big Idea answers , “Why?” Real Life Application Rubric Assessments
Determine acceptable evidence - Self assess, Rubrics, GRASPS (goal, role, audience, situation, performance, standards) Plan learning experiences & instruction - 5 E Model ( - Organize by WHERE (Why or Where, Hooked, Equip/Explore, Rethink/rehearse/refine/revise, Evaluate)
Your turn Create an effective lesson plan OR project 1. What TEKS do you want to cover? - week, semester, 6 weeks, year 2. Think of a real life problem that use those TEKS 3. How will you use technology to gather, research, present, organize, share, etc. in solving this problem
