Integrating Technology and Marzano’s Instructional Strategies

Identifying similarities and differences
Identifying Similarities and Differences

  • Four processes:

    • Comparing

    • Classifying

    • Creating metaphors

    • Creating analogies

  • Helps student restructure their understanding of content

  • Encourages students to make new connections and correct misconceptions

  • Use graphic and symbolic representations to give students support and structure

Identifying similarities and differences1
Identifying Similarities and Differences

  • Microsoft Word

    • SmartArt graphics

    • Insert table

    • Clipart for analogies and metaphors

  • Microsoft Excel

Identifying similarities and differences2
Identifying Similarities and Differences

  • Mapping software

    • Kidspiration/Inspiration



      • Classifying Example

  • Interactive whiteboard

    • Mimio Notebook

    • SMART Notebook

    • Promethean ActivInspire

    • Comparing Example

    • Classifying Example

Summarizing and note taking
Summarizing and Note Taking

  • Enhance students' ability to synthesize information and distill it into a concise new form.

  • Students need specific summarizing and note-taking techniques.

  • Microsoft Office for summarizing and note-taking:

    • Use Track Changes in Word to teach summarizing technique

    • Use Auto Summarize to compare student summaries with computer summary

    • PowerPoint for combination notes (two-content layout)



Nonlinguistic Representations

Summarizing and note taking1
Summarizing and Note Taking

  • Collaborative summarizing and note-taking:

    • Wiki


    • Blog


    • EtherPad

      Take & share notes from the session!

Reinforcing effort
Reinforcing Effort

  • Motivation plays a key role in the learning process.

  • Use a rubric and spreadsheet to track effort and achievement.

    • Students rate their own effort and record in a spreadsheet.

    • Provide students with grades for each task based on criteria for assignment.

    • Students enter grades in spreadsheet, then create a graph to show correlation between effort and achievement.

Providing recognition
Providing Recognition

Provide recognition through:

  • Digital student portfolios

  • Blog

  • Microsoft certificate templates

    Example: Students create certificates for classmates.

Providing recognition1
Providing Recognition

  • Podcast

    • Audioboo

    • Teachers, students, and parents can record podcast and share with class.

  • Video conferencing/messaging

    • Tokbox

    • Similar to podcasting, create a video message to provide recognition for students.

Homework and practice
Homework and Practice

  • Give students opportunities to deepen their understanding of and proficiency with content

  • Communicate the purpose of homework and practice

  • Provide feedback to students

  • Students need a lot of practice to achieve mastery

Homework and practice1
Homework and Practice

Have students work cooperatively to create games using templates below.

Students who create the games and students who play the games will


  • Templates for you or students to create

    • Classroom game templates

    • Microsoft Office games

    • PowerPoint templates

  • Teacher created games

    • Jeopardy games

Nonlinguistic representations
Nonlinguistic Representations

  • Use linguistic & nonlinguistic representations of content to increase understanding and retention.

  • To significantly increase learning, involve students in creating nonlinguistic representations.

  • Simple applications:

    • Add clip art and photos to notes, vocabulary, word walls

    • Play video clips and slideshows

    • Use presentation software for lessons

      • Pete’s PowerPoint Station -

Setting objectives and providing feedback
Setting Objectives and Providing Feedback

  • Students learn best when they know the goals or objectives of a lesson or learning activity.

  • We do this with:

    • Essential Questions

    • Essential Skills

    • Rubrics

    • KWL

Setting objectives
Setting Objectives

  • Digital learning goals are easily shared with parents and easy to access later for progress monitoring, reflection, and evaluation.

  • Electronic KWL


  • Learning contract

    Example using Google Docs Form:

    Spreadsheet for results

  • Blog for brainstorming

    • Post topic prior to lesson, unit, text reading, etc.

Generating and testing hypotheses
Generating and Testing Hypotheses

  • Includes 6 types of tasks:

    • Systems Analysis (Predict what might happen if one part of a system changes.)

    • Problem Solving (Focus on unstructured, real life problems that may have more than one solution.)

    • Decision Making (Make a prediction and weigh it against other possible alternatives.)

    • Historical Investigation (“What really happened?” “Why did this happen?”)

    • Experimental Inquiry (Not only used in science!)

    • Invention (“Shouldn’t there be a better way to…?”)
