Essential question
Essential Question

  • As Lead Technology Teachers and Administrators, how can we use elements of 21st century learning to turn up the H.E.A.T. for both staff and students?

Turning Up the H.E.A.T.

  • H– Higher Order Thinking

  • E – Engaged Learning

  • A – Authenticity of Activity

  • T – Technology Use

Does it matter how much H.E.A.T. is being generated in our classrooms?

Turning up the H.E.A.T. in the classroom can make a huge difference.

Even by one degree!

The loti digital age survey


The LoTi Digital-Age Survey

  • 39 Question Survey

  • Aligns to the new NETS for Teachers

  • Incorporates digital-age technologies (e.g., interactive whiteboards and iPods)

  • Produces a LoTi Digital-Age Professional Development Priorities Profile to assist in decision making about needed professional development interventions

LoTi Level 2: Exploration

At a Level 2 (Exploration) the instructional focus emphasizes content understanding and supports mastery learning and direct instruction. Teacher questioning and/or student learning focuses on LOWER LEVELS of student cognitive processing (e.g. knowledge and comprehension) using the available digital assets.

PCU Intensity Level 2Little to moderate fluency with using digital tools and resources for student learning; teachers do not feel comfortable using digital tools or resources beyond classroom management.

LoTi Profiler

  • Analyze trends in the Professional Development needs of staff aligned to 21st Century Skills

  • Gauge the Levels of Teaching Innovation (LoTi) and Current Instructional Practices (CIP) of your entire school system in real-time

  • Track LoTi Digital-Age Survey participation

  • Aggregate group data includes selected demographic information in both graph and table formats

  • Create customized Digital-Age Profile reports and Technology Use Profile reports for your school building or district

  • Review LoTi Digital-Age Professional Development Priorities Profile for a school or district

What is our next step????

  • LoTi Digital-Age Survey to be released to teachers and administrators by end of school year

  • Once the LoTi results are generated, school and district administration will receive an Individual School Profiler Report

  • Based on those survey results, discussion and planning for teaching innovation professional development can begin…
