A Process for Creating Technology-Infused Classroom Activities


COS - page 17, 22

  • Unit Organizer - open-ended question to frame topic “How does the Earth’s movement affect us?”
  • Essential Questions - avenues of investigation. “Why do we have seasons?”
  • NETS - National Technology Education Standards

Multiple Intelligences -Howard Gardner suggests people possess at least 8 types of intelligences to varying degrees

  • Learning styles - the process of how students best learn
  • Learn process of mapping technology your existing activities.
  • Learn to use technology to add value to your teaching and learning.
  • Use a validated approach to lesson planning.
before you begin
Before you begin….
  • What technology is available?
  • What are your technology skills?
  • And...
technology skills learning
Technology + Skills +Learning
  • Examine students’ learning styles and intelligences.
  • Technology addresses many types of learners.
gardner s theory and technology

COS - page 18

Gardner’s Theory and Technology
  • Multiple intelligences
    • Verbal/linguistic
    • Logical/mathematical
    • Visual/spatial
    • Body/kinesthetic
    • Musical/rhythmic
    • Interpersonal
    • Intrapersonal
    • Naturalistic

How does technology help all

learning types

  • Use a word processor or desktop publisher.
  • Provide narration.
logical mathematical
  • Design flowcharts
  • Use spreadsheets
  • Navigation routes
  • Write scripting
visual spatial
  • Create graphics, animation
  • Design layout
  • KidPix, Draw
body kinesthetic

theories on learning styles

COS - page 19

Theories on Learning Styles
  • Visual - creating drawings KidPix
  • Auditory - multimedia encyclopedias
  • Kinesthetic - programs/equipment, mouse, keyboard, touch screen
  • Collaborative - group work to create project
  • Competitive - on-line contests like Thinkquest Internet Challenge
variety in technology use
Variety in Technology Use
  • Developing your students’ different learning styles.
  • Technology is a tremendous help in varying lesson tasks.
how can you use technology to
Solve and explain


Write and perform

Investigate and summarize

Develop and Implement

Compile and analyze

Predict what would happen

Defend a Position

Formulate a Theory

Design and Present

COS - page 20

How can you use technology to:

Brainstorm: Write these ideas in your “Good Curriculum Planning” handout.

examine the activity

COS - page 37

Examine the Activity
  • First decide whether technology should be added or not.
  • Ask yourself: What value will technology add to my lesson?
  • Think about how technology can support and improve student learning.
rewrite the activity

COS - page 38

Rewrite the Activity
  • Revise your goals to reflect changes due to technology infusion.
  • Consider the following:
    • What skills will your students need to know?
    • How will students be grouped?
prepare your materials

COS - page 39

Prepare Your Materials
  • Prepare the materials you need, such as: instructional materials, handouts, and assessments.
  • It is important to provide students with clear, concise, step-by-step directions for every aspect of the activity.
create a schedule

COS - page 39

Create a Schedule
  • Create a schedule that allows students maximum use of technology resources.
    • When will the computers be available?
    • What off-computer activities will students be doing when computers are in use?
    • What must students complete before they work on the computers?
introduce lesson and evaluation

COS- page 40

Introduce Lesson and Evaluation
  • The introduction to the lesson is your chance to excite students about the activity.
  • Explain the process step-by-step.
  • Distribute and review student materials.
share student work

COS- page 40

Share Student Work
  • Provide time for students to share their work with each other.
  • This will bring closure to the activity.
  • It will give students a chance to see what their classmates accomplished.
evaluate the activity

COS- page 40

Evaluate the Activity
  • When the activity is complete, evaluate the students’ final project based on the criteria that was established at the beginning of the activity.
  • You should also evaluate the activity as a whole.
    • Did the technology add value?
    • Would I implement the activity again?
