  13. 13. IntegratingTechnology How do you include technology in your practice? ▪ Find a tool and figure out how to use it with your students/staff ▪ Think about what you already do with your students/staff and then how technology could deepen or expand on the lesson (POST) ▪ Think of a challenging task and how technology might help 13
  14. 14. UsingTechnology Technology Integration Technology usage in random, arbitrary & often an afterthought Technology usage is planned & purposeful Technology is rare or sporadically used in the classroom Technology is a routine part of the classroom environment Technology is used purely for the sake of using technology Technology is used to support curricular goals & learning objectives Technology is used to instruct students on content Technology is used to engage students with content Technology is mostly being used by the instructor(s) Technology is mostly being used by the student(s) Focus on simply using technologies Focus on using technologies to create and develop new thinking processes More instructional time is spent learning how to use the technology More instructional time is spent using the technology to learn Technology is used to complete lower-order thinking tasks Technology is used to encourage higher-order thinking skills Technology is used solely by individuals working alone Technology is used to facilitate collaboration in & out of the classroom Technology is used to facilitate activities that are feasible or easier without technology Technology is used to facilitate activities that would otherwise be difficult or impossible Technology is used to deliver information Technology is used to construct & build knowledge Technology is peripheral to the learning activity Technology is essential to the learning activity ©TeachBytes 2013
  15. 15. POST Method ▪ P is People. Know the capabilities of your audience. Know what scaffolding they’ll need. ▪ O is objectives. Pick one. Decide on your objective before you decide on a technology.Then figure out how you will measure it. ▪ S is Strategy. Figure out what will be different after you're done. Imagine you succeed. How will things be different afterwards? Imagine the endpoint and you'll know where to begin. ▪ T isTechnology. A community. A wiki. A blog or a hundred blogs. Once you know your people, objectives, and strategy, then you can decide with confidence. The POST Method: A systematic approach to social strategy by Josh Bernoff 15
