  • Technology Integration by Sabrina Perez

    1. 1. My Technology Integration Sabrina Perez
    2. 2. Science Lesson <ul><li>I taught in Jordan District at Midvale Elementary School in a 2 nd Grade classroom </li></ul><ul><li>I was going to teach a lesson on vegetables, plants, and photosynthesis that followed these objectives: Standard 3, Objective 1 b. Describe the life cycle of local plants and animals using diagrams and pictures. </li></ul>
    3. 3. <ul><li>So then, I thought about how it would be easier for the children to understand if they SAW photosynthesis in action, and what better way than through technology! </li></ul><ul><li>I first read to them the book Tops and Bottoms, a little story about the parts of vegetables. </li></ul>
    4. 5. <ul><li>We reviewed what parts of the vegetable grew on the top and what part grew on the bottom. </li></ul><ul><li>We named the tops and bottoms leaves, stems, and roots. </li></ul>
    5. 7. <ul><li>Then we learned about photosynthesis through a series of slides with awesome pictures about how photosynthesis works. </li></ul><ul><li>Here is a picture of how it happens in the leaf! … </li></ul>
    6. 9. <ul><li>And then to put it all together… I found the most awesome video clip on TeacherTube that shows radishes growing…the roots grow down, and then the plant grows up! </li></ul>
    7. 12. Reflection <ul><li>What things went well: </li></ul><ul><li>The kids loved the technology and the animations I put with the slideshow. My teacher also loved the slideshow so much that she wanted a copy for further use. She thought I got it off the Internet, but I just made it myself. What a compliment! </li></ul><ul><li>What I would do better in the future: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>I had booklets that the children filled out as I went along in the PowerPoint. I would have taught them what to do with the booklets better. My directions could have been better for that part of instruction. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In My Technology Lesson, I was using the technology. There are not many resources for the children to be the active participants in using the technology. I tried to use what I had. </li></ul></ul>
    8. 13. <ul><ul><li>In My Technology Lesson, I was using the technology. There are not many resources for the children to be the active participants in using the technology. I tried to use what I had. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The technology was essential to the lesson. It reinforced what the children learned in the book Tops and Bottoms and introduced a totally new concept to them: photosynthesis. Without the technology PowerPoint, it would have been difficult for them to understand and grasp what I was teaching them. </li></ul><ul><li>The technology focuses on learning the subject matter and was being used as a tool to fulfill the objective. </li></ul><ul><li>The lesson would not have been easier to do without technology. It took a lot of preparation before the lesson, but during the lesson it all came together and I think it was easier for the children to understand with the images and video I chose. </li></ul><ul><li>As a teacher, I was able to show them the photosynthesis process actually happening with the video on radishes that would not have been possible without technology. </li></ul>
