Google Docs Integration ECOO presentation


Published on

When integrating tech in the classroom I think we need to further our questioning when thinking about purpose. We need to ask ourselves a whole list of questions. I presented these at ECCO last year in my presentation about Google Docs. When thinking about integrating any tech, ask yourself:
How will the technology support...
media literacy?
digital citizenship?
social learning and communication?
critical thinking?
differentiation for learners who learn best textually, auditorily, kinesthetically?
assessment and marking (teacher, self, and peer)?
