  • Introduction into the presentation Introduce myself Why this information is important How it pertains to our school
  • Technology and the importance-Student achievement and learning How technology is used for the success vehicle Promoting student learning through technology
  • These are the main points in the presentation Discussed further in the presentation Why these are the main points and what they will do for student achievement Explain the main points What they include. Why they are important How they will directly affect student achievement and technology These are the points of emphasis throughout presentation
  • Motivation Why it’s the first step-must have motivation before learning is happening Purpose of motivation-both teachers and students Motivation and how it relates to curriculum What happens without motivation Distractions Classroom Management issues Students shut down from learning Importance of motivation in relation to technology
  • Explain the Foltos article and its main points Relate it to the key points of presentation How technology was used for learning and motivation Explain the Nagel article and main points Relate it to the key points of presentation How technology was used for learning and motivation Explain the skills that we justified by the articles and the importance of technology in education Difference between he articles and different types or ways to motivate students to learning through technology Talk about what technology has done for students as far as scores and graduation rates
  • Explain the charts on the slide What are the types of motivation? Different students are motivated differently Reaching out to all students-motivating the students that are not motivated Finding ways to make technology relevant to different students Higher order thinking skills and motivation comes first Explain motivation has to be developed before learning takes place Explain that using the circle chart to the left Details about the chart and wanting the students to get to the outer rim
  • Explain how technology will be used in your everyday lives How important this is for students to learn and understand Relating technology to applications in the real world Why is technology important – Explain Why is it important that students understand technology and different applications Using technology as the vehicle but promoting learning with these situations Making technology fun and not a chore for students and teachers Promoting higher order thinking skills for students – show them that students need these skills for everyday experiences that they may have
  • Look at the chart and the amount of kids that like technology -kids like technology but they need to understand how to use it -Making technology fun but yet intrusive for learning Integrating technology into the existing curriculum -using technology to teach -kids use technology for assignments -have students use technology to solve problems -Give students the tools for success and the sky is the limit
  • Blooms taxonomy chart of higher order thinking skills Why this is important? -this is how students need to learn -the idea is for students to reach the top and be able to have a complete understanding of the materials -this chart should be used for all lesson so many times we only reach the knowledge and maybe understand but that is it. -Create students to be able to understand the entire concept and they will learn -use this chart for all subject areas and with technology implementation
  • Having the chart is great – but using it is key Teachers take this on their shoulders and need to apply this to their lessons Reach out to all students and create a positive learning environment This chart shows the circle of learning and how knowledge is shared Gives evidence for experiences and allows thoughts to be exchanged Promotion for technology and how it is used today Gives a vast amount of ownership to the students and allows them to share ideas and information
  • None of this can happen without teachers -all the technology in the world but you need great teachers to teach it -Buy-in teachers and staff on board -Training for teachers and staff -examples of training ideas -How they work -who will benefit -why it is important -using technology is a two way street Teachers have to build their technology base and understand how to reach their students that is why training is so important.
  • Explain these two facets of training and how they will affect teachers, staff, administration, school board, taxpayers, and the community Why these are essential to the technology integration process Why these are important for student achievement -This is where it all starts -Getting everyone on board Explaining the process and how this will benefit the students Student Preparation Wrap up Closing statement With these four aspects of technology student achievement is right in front of us but we need to decide to take the next step and that is integrating technology into our school system because it does increase student achievement.
