Is it easy to walk into a traditional classroom and measure engagement? Depending on how you defined engagement, you could find several different ways to determine if students are engaged in the learning process. Look around – how many participatge, raise their hands, on task, level of academic achievement, ability to collaborateNevertheless, over the last two decades there has been significant growth in the awareness of and the ability to assess student engagement.But how can you measure student engagement when it comes to the use of technology? Can you simply walk in a room and assess how engaged students are by whether or not they have technology in their hands. Our natural inclination as educators would be to view hands on activities as one of the best indicators of engagement. For example, if you were to see several students using iPod touches and collaborating with each other, you would might assume that the students are highly engaged, the same as you would if the students were using math manipulatives.However, while these students may be engaged, it is hard to qualify the degree of engagement. While using technology may be engaging in and of it self, it is important to evaluate the level of engagement and its role in the learning process.
You are still the driving force in the classroom. You are the catalyst for your student’s learning.
How do we tie in technology to the pedagogy of teaching? The Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy places emphasis upon its use as a “ more authentic tool for curriculum planning, instructional delivery and assessment.” This new taxonomy reflects a more active form of thinking and is perhaps more accurate.With the advance of technology into our lives and particularly into education , we started to talk about new emerging skills and competences that Bloom’s first taxonomy did not include. Below is a diagram i have created to include these new skills which corresponds to the 21st century learning.
