[HANDOUT] Taking it Deeper: Exploring the Ramifications of Technology on Place-Based Learning

  1. 1. Reflection: Geocache <br />Name: ____________________________<br />Think about the question you found in your cache. Below, write for a few minutes about your thoughts. These won’t be published, so don’t fret about complete sentences, punctuation, etc. However, do be prepared to share your thoughts orally with the group. <br />Reflection: Developing a Critical Tool<br />for Evaluating Classroom Technology<br />Name: __________________________<br />We have been charged by the conference coordinators to create a takeaway tool—a rubric, a checklist, or something similar—that will help educators evaluate the positive and negative impacts of incorporating a certain technology into their classroom. The tool will be distributed to all conference participants. This is SUPER AWESOME FUN. (i.e.: What an authentic use of your time, experience and talents!)<br />In groups, we’ll be brainstorming what this tool might look like. We’ll use your geocache reflections and the keynote information to help. Below, you’ll find some questions you may want to consider. <br />Remember that there’s no right or wrong answers to these questions. The goal is to create something that is actually useful to you and your colleagues. <br />What form should the tool take? (Rubric? Checklist? Something else?)<br />How will the tool help teachers tie learning outcomes explicitly to the use of the technology?<br />How will the tool help teachers see all the negatives and positives of using the technology?<br />How will the tool help teachers see what kinds of negatives and positives are involved in the technology?<br />How will the tool help teachers decide if the affordances of the technology outweighs the costs?<br />
