• My students will do their case artifact proposals in google docs.
• How you would decide if to use these tools, when to use these toolsYou know they are out there, how do you decide how to use them? You can pick one specific one if that helps…
• Two topics – how to write an observable objective.2. Decision making process for choosing tools
• Well-written objective has three parts.Performance: Criteria: How you tell if they learned it or not.Given the ABC blocks, the students will be able to place these blocks in alphabetical order, with 100% accuracy.Conditions: BLOCKSPerformance: PLACE BLOCKES IN ALPHABETICAL ORDERCriteria: 100% ACCURACYGiven a blank map of the USA, students will write the names of the states, getting at least 40 out of 50 correctGiven the appropriate scientific tools, students will correctly identify the volume of an irregular solid within 10 mL.
• The performance part is where we get a little bit picky.You actually have them do something so you can tell whether or not they can do it correctly. How can you tell? Make sure it’s observable – something you can show them.Use any of these bad verbs.
• The performance part is where we get a little bit picky.You actually have them do something so you can tell whether or not they can do it correctly. How can you tell? Make sure it’s observable – something you can show them.Don’t use any of these bad verbs – that don’t specifically state something that’s observable.

1. 1. Lecture #6<br />Making Technology Integration Decisions<br />
2. 2. Goal of Lecture<br />UNIT ONE<br />--Why should I use technology (shift?)<br />--How do I learn to use technology (PD)?<br />--What are some ways that teachers use technology (T&L, admin, assessment, class management)<br />UNIT TWO<br />--Why should I use technology? (3 e’s)<br />--How do I decide what technology to use and when (today)?<br />--What technology tools are out there (rest)?<br />
