  43. Educational ContentEx:6th Grade Curriculum

  44. Ex: Project Research the main causes of food poisoning. In graph form state causes, number of outbreaks, percentage of total. Analyzing the data, determine the best explanation for the information.

  45. DECIDE phase: Assign groups, brainstorm, and research the content DESIGN phase: Determine the program structure and detail the content DEVELOP phase: Gather and create the media elements, author the program, review, and debug EVALUATE phase: Evaluate the project Implementing Multimedia Projects--DDD-E Model (Ivers & Barron, 98)

  46. Assessment Rubric for Project: Integrated Instructional Lesson

  47. Title,Grade Level, Timeframe, Overview Electronic tools/Technologies required Curriculum standards Subject areas, outcomes/indicators, state tested indicators NETS standards Connection to School Improvement Plan Procedures/Activities Resources & Materials Assessment Extension Activities Online Lesson Plan

  48. As the development and alignment of standards, educational objectives, curriculum and assessments evolve, technology use must be modified to support these goals. Instructional Technology Planning
