NTeQ Lesson

  1. 1. NTeQ ModelDesigning anIntegrated Lesson
  2. 2. The 10 Step NTeQ Model Specify Objectives  Activities Before Computer Use Computer Functions  Activities During Specify Problem Computer Use Research and  Activities After Analysis/Data Computer Use Manipulation  Supporting Activities Results Presentation  Assessment
  3. 3. Specify Objectives Objectives cover all the instruction in the lesson, not just the information related to the computer. Source of objectives? Include 3 parts:  Conditions (a statement that describes the conditions under which the behavior is to be performed)  Behavioral Verb (an action word that connotes an observable student behavior)  Criteria (a statement that specifies how well the student must perform the behavior).
  4. 4. Matching Objectives to Computer Functions Computer functions are tasks that the computer software can assist with or perform. Examples: spreadsheet, draw or paint program, word processing, photo software Easy to match: calculate, draw, graph, sort More difficult: plan, infer, predict, evaluate
  5. 5. Specifying a Problem It is critical that the problem is highly motivating and interesting. Problems in integrated lessons are based on real- world events, issues, or phenomena. Address the following questions:  Do the students clearly understand the problem?  Do they know what the goal is?  Do they know what resources are available to solve the problem?  Do they have ownership of the problem?
  6. 6. Research and Analysis Problem Data: given, generated through experiments, searched for in materials Collecting Data: determine type and amount Using Existing Data: format, modifications, merging, saving Test the Data: Teacher checks data before it is used Providing Instructions for entering data Think Sheets help students organize their thinking and reflect
  7. 7. Planning the Results Presentation  Choose a format: written report, audio or video, poster or bulletin board, wiki or blog, or presentation  Publishing results encourages students to analyze and reflect because it will be viewed by others.  As you plan the presentation, develop criteria the student should include.  Think carefully and thoroughly to avoid problems.
  8. 8. Activities During Computer Use Identify the activities the students will engage in while using the computer. Students will need clear, precise instructions of what they are to do while working at the computer. Will the students work individually or in groups? If in groups, assist the students in defining different roles and ensure rotation.
  9. 9. Activities Before Computer Use Especially important if time or resources are limited. Some examples: data collection, creating outlines, gathering materials, and identifying key search terms Look back at the list of things they will do on the computer. Are there any pre-steps?
  10. 10. Activities After Computer Use  Learning does not end with computer time.  Activities after should focus on exploring the results.  Students should interpret or explain their results.  Teacher can provide guiding questions.
  11. 11. Supporting Activities Lesson-Related Supporting Activities  Objectives can include a variety of skills and topics  Not all require the use of computers  Interesting lessons require a variety of activities  Multiple Lesson Supporting Activities Provide multiple units for the students Not all will require computer use  Interdisciplinary Supporting Activities Use team teaching approach All activities must match objectives!
  12. 12. Assessment Assessment of an integrated computer lesson will typically require more than a paper-and-pencil test. During the lesson, students can use a task list to guide productivity and self reflection of quality. A multiple-choice or short-answer test can assess the students’ understanding of concepts and principles. Rubrics can be used to assess projects.
  13. 13. Summary Effective use of computers in your classroom requires careful planning to integrate their use into a lesson. The NTeQ model provides 10 steps to help you complete this lesson planning. The first 5 steps are planning the content. The next 3 include how computers will be used. The 9th is planning supporting activities. The 10th is assessment.
