  45. 45. Reflection guides<br />Inspired Learning<br />Mishra, P., & Koehler, M. J. (2006). Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge: A new framework for teacher knowledge. Teachers College Record. 108(6), 1017-1054. <br />
  46. 46. Inspired Learning Reflection Guide<br />Initial impressions to seed your thinking<br />Master of classroom strategies, application of learning theory, differentiation techniques, grading practices. Uses data in instructional design and monitors progress. Understands students learning styles and needs. Establishes relationships with community.<br />Understands current technology and its relevance for students. Can use technology as a tool to deliver instruction. Can design lessons or activities that allow for students to learn with technology. Digital content, both teacher and student-produced, is pervasive in this classroom.<br />Master of the content in the subject area/grade level earning the designation “highly qualified.” Knows, understands, and aligns instruction with LPS Curriculum and Essential Learnings. Stays current in the content of his/her field. Rigor is a tenet of his/her classroom.<br />
  47. 47. Inspired Learning Reflection Guide<br />How do you identify it? Key indicators<br />This teacher is doing some dazzling work: students are engaged, in groups, and on task. Use of technology is seamless and polished. However, Essential Learnings/LPS curricular objectives are not being addressed. Activities lack purpose and do not fit within horizontal/vertical alignments, PLC activities. <br />This teacher aligns instruction with LPS curriculum. He/She knows students’ needs, provides learning activities based on those needs, and monitors progress. Formative and summative assessments, and AssessTrack is consulted in instructional design.<br />Very little in the way of digital content is used or created in this class. <br />Exciting but lacks alignment<br />Good but dated<br />Modern but not meeting kids’ needs<br />This teacher deploys technology in instructional delivery and in learning activities, but in a non-differentiated manner. Little regard is given to progress monitoring and data-driven instruction. Students are completing the same activity, with technology, lockstep. <br />
  48. 48. Inspired Writing Reflection Guide<br />Synthesize your previous thoughts to create a guide for yourself to help focus on what a successful nexus of these three domains would look like.<br />Synthesis:<br />Exciting but lacks alignment<br />Good but dated<br />Modern but not meeting kids’ needs<br />http://tinyurl.com/lpstpack<br />
