Learning objectives

Learning Objectives

  • Understanding of the importance of classroom observations in assessing technology integration by teachers and students

  • Learning about the strengths and weaknesses of different classroom observation methodologies


Question

Question:

With the NCLB legislation’s emphasis on the importance of “evidence-based decision making and scientifically-based educational practices, what role does classroom observation data play in documenting the impact of those practices and the technologies on teaching and learning within classrooms?


Scientifically based research

Scientifically-Based Research

The Six Critical Words

  • 1. Rigorous

  • 2. Systematic

  • 3. Objective

  • 4. Reliable

  • 5. Valid

  • 6. Relevant


Observing classroom performance

Observing Classroom Performance

Chapter 6 - pp. 111- 133

  • Advantage of classroom observations is their face validity

  • Challenge of classroom observations is in reliably recording and communicating what is observed


Integration of technology observation instrument

INTEGRATION OF TECHNOLOGY OBSERVATION INSTRUMENT

Observation Example 1

pp. 113-126

Arizona State University West


Assumptions

Assumptions

The instrument must have certain characteristics

The instrument itself should:

a. Answer the core question: Has this teacher integrated technology in an appropriate way?

b. Be adaptable to multiple instructional settings

c. Be suited to a 30-60 minute observation

d. Possess high inter-rater reliability

e. Be sensitive to the developmental process of teachers learning to integrate technology


Assumptions1

Assumptions

  • Started with an existing instrument

    • Mike Timms, WestEd, Center for Assessment and Evaluation of Student Learning

    • Time sampling

  • Elaborated on the types of technology that might be observed

    • Internet to Library Ecard Catalogs

      The most critical feature: Defining integration

      The instrument must reflect technology integration, which is observable.

    • Modeling - Facilitating/coaching

    • Managing behavior or materials


Integration of technology observation instrument itoi2

Integration of Technology Observation Instrument (ITOI)

  • Teacher Use of Technology

    • To present information

    • To model a skill to a large group

    • For grading, attendance, or materials production

    • To retrieve information

    • Not using

Snapshot assessment instrument

SNAPSHOT ASSESSMENT INSTRUMENT

Observation Example 3

pp. 129 - 133


The snapshot assessment

The Snapshot Assessment:

  • Allows for comparison of technology use across classrooms and over time

  • Is simple and easy to use

  • Provides data of only moderate quality

  • Provides data that are time-period specific
