Integrating Technology & Marzano's Instructional Strategies

  1. 1. Integrating Technology and Marzano’s Instructional Strategies<br />Jayme Linton<br />NCCS Summer Educators’ Conference<br />August 3, 2010<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. Identifying Similarities and Differences<br />Four processes:<br />Comparing<br />Classifying<br />Creating metaphors<br />Creating analogies<br />Helps student restructure their understanding of content<br />Encourages students to make new connections and correct misconceptions<br />Use graphic and symbolic representations to give students support and structure<br />
  4. 4. Identifying Similarities and Differences<br />Microsoft Word<br />SmartArt graphics<br />Insert table<br />Clipart for analogies and metaphors<br />Microsoft Excel <br />
  5. 5. Identifying Similarities and Differences<br />Mapping software<br />Kidspiration/Inspiration<br /><br /><br />Classifying Example<br />Interactive whiteboard<br />Mimio Notebook<br />SMART Notebook<br />Promethean ActivInspire<br />Comparing Example<br />Classifying Example<br />
  6. 6. Summarizing and Note Taking<br />Enhance students' ability to synthesize information and distill it into a concise new form.<br />Students need specific summarizing and note-taking techniques.<br />Microsoft Office for summarizing and note-taking:<br />Use Track Changes in Word to teach summarizing technique<br />Use Auto Summarize to compare student summaries with computer summary<br />PowerPoint for combination notes (two-content layout)<br />

  8. 8.
  9. 9. Concepts/Facts<br />Nonlinguistic Representations<br />Summary:<br />
  10. 10. Summarizing and Note Taking<br />Collaborative summarizing and note-taking:<br />Wiki<br /> Example:<br />Blog<br /> Example:<br />EtherPad<br />Take & share notes from the session!<br />
  11. 11.
  12. 12. Reinforcing Effort<br />Motivation plays a key role in the learning process.<br />Use a rubric and spreadsheet to track effort and achievement.<br />Students rate their own effort and record in a spreadsheet.<br />Provide students with grades for each task based on criteria for assignment.<br />Students enter grades in spreadsheet, then create a graph to show correlation between effort and achievement.<br />
  13. 13. Providing Recognition<br />Provide recognition through:<br />Digital student portfolios<br />Blog<br />Microsoft certificate templates<br /> Example: Students create certificates for classmates.<br />
  14. 14. Providing Recognition<br />Podcast<br />Audioboo<br />Teachers, students, and parents can record podcast and share with class.<br />Video conferencing/messaging<br />Tokbox<br />Similar to podcasting, create a video message to provide recognition for students.<br />
  15. 15. Homework and Practice<br />Give students opportunities to deepen their understanding of and proficiency with content<br />Communicate the purpose of homework and practice<br />Provide feedback to students<br />Students need a lot of practice to achieve mastery<br />
  16. 16. Homework and Practice<br />Have students work cooperatively to create games using templates below.<br />Students who create the games and students who play the games will <br />benefit!<br />Templates for you or students to create<br />Classroom game templates<br />Microsoft Office games<br />PowerPoint templates<br />Teacher created games<br />Jeopardy games<br />PowerPoint games<br />
  17. 17. Web Resources for Homework and Practice<br />Math<br />Virtual manipulatives<br />Interactive EOG & EOC<br />GeoGebra<br />Math 5 Live<br />IXL Math Practice (K-6)<br />Language Arts<br />Into the Book<br />ReadWriteThink<br />Magnetic Poetry<br />Science<br />FOSSweb<br />EdHeads<br />General<br />BrainPop – movies and quizzes<br /> – (K-8)<br />Flashcard Exchange<br />E-Learning for Kids (K-6)<br />
  18. 18. Nonlinguistic Representations<br />Use linguistic & nonlinguistic representations of content to increase understanding and retention.<br />To significantly increase learning, involve students in creating nonlinguistic representations.<br />Simple applications:<br />Add clip art and photos to notes, vocabulary, word walls<br />Play video clips and slideshows<br />Use presentation software for lessons<br />Pete’s PowerPoint Station -<br />
  19. 19. Nonlinguistic Representations<br />
  20. 20. Nonlinguistic Representations<br />Photo Story <br /> Example:<br />Windows Movie Maker<br />Glogster<br /> Example:<br />Prezi<br /> Example:<br />
  21. 21. Nonlinguistic Representations<br />Go Animate<br /> Example:<br />Google Earth<br /> Example: NCCS virtual tour<br />Voice Thread<br /> Example:<br />
  22. 22. Cooperative Learning<br />Use a variety of grouping<br />patterns.<br />Informal Groups:<br />Think-Pair-Share<br />Turn to your neighbor<br />Formal Groups:<br />Literature Circles<br />Guided Reading<br />Project-based<br />Base Groups:<br />Long term<br />Homeroom<br />Table team<br />
  23. 23. Cooperative Learning<br />Use rubrics to communicate expectations for cooperative learning and evaluate group cooperation.<br /> Example:<br />
  24. 24. Cooperative Learning<br />Technology-based cooperative learning experiences:<br />Multimedia projects<br />Video creation and editing<br />Glogster<br />News cast<br />Skype<br />50 Ways to Use Skype in the Classroom<br />ePals Global Community<br />
  25. 25. Cooperative Learning<br />EtherPad<br />Wiki<br />Class web page <br /> (School Fusion)<br />Wikispaces - Free for educational wikis<br /><br /> Example:<br />
  26. 26. Setting Objectives and Providing Feedback<br />Students learn best when they know the goals or objectives of a lesson or learning activity.<br />We do this with:<br />Essential Questions<br />Essential Skills<br />Rubrics<br />KWL<br />
  27. 27. Setting Objectives<br />Digital learning goals are easily shared with parents and easy to access later for progress monitoring, reflection, and evaluation.<br />Electronic KWL<br /> Example:<br />Learning contract<br /> Example using Google Docs Form:<br />Spreadsheet for results<br />Blog for brainstorming<br />Post topic prior to lesson, unit, text reading, etc.<br />
  28. 28. Setting Objectives<br />Data and goal-setting<br />Electronic newsletter<br />Study Island<br />Pre-assessment<br />Survey Monkey<br />Clickers<br />Microsoft Mouse Mischief<br />Angles lesson example<br />
  29. 29. Providing Feedback<br />Effective feedback enhances student achievement.<br />Rubrics<br />Rubistar<br />Teachnology<br />Blog - Use comments for feedback<br /> Example:<br />
  30. 30. Providing Feedback<br />Classroom web page - Use as digital portfolio for students. Teachers, students, and parents can leave comments for feedback. <br /> Example:<br />Voice Thread<br />Microsoft Word – Comments<br />Clickers - Provide immediate feedback<br />Study Island<br />
  31. 31. Generating and Testing Hypotheses<br />Includes 6 types of tasks:<br />Systems Analysis (Predict what might happen if one part of a system changes.)<br />Problem Solving (Focus on unstructured, real life problems that may have more than one solution.)<br />Decision Making (Make a prediction and weigh it against other possible alternatives.)<br />Historical Investigation (“What really happened?” “Why did this happen?”)<br />Experimental Inquiry (Not only used in science!)<br />Invention (“Shouldn’t there be a better way to…?”)<br />
  32. 32. Generating and Testing Hypotheses<br />Spreadsheets<br />Microsoft Excel<br />Google Docs<br />Collect and analyze data<br />Evaluate criteria<br />Make decisions<br />Google Earth<br />Historical Imagery<br />
