My table went a bit nuts so I’m going with this for my theories and frameworks
Help understand how to learn about a new ICT and how to use it to enhance student learning.
If there are any new ICTs you need to use it might help your explorations.
Hence might be useful as a part of the planning process for Part B.
Technological, Pedagogical and Content Knowledge. A way of thinking about the different types of knowledge required to design effective, ICT-rich learning experience. Experiment and practise ICT’s before including them in learning experiences. Making sure that the use of ICT enhances the other knowledge and content of the lesson/learning experience.
A method used to plan a unit or lesson sequence. You begin with the outcomes and assessment first and then plan the learning experiences from the outcomes. Identify curriculum requirements and develop learning experiences starting with the assessment and working backwards.
Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, Redifinition.
determining how the ICT enhances learning
Planning to use ICT that creates an experience they may not have been previously able to do without ICT, it is OK to simply substitute to engage students but aim for more modification and redefinition.
The Technology Integration Planning Model. Focus on why ICT is being integrated
1.Determine relative advantage
2. Decide on objectives and assessments
3. Design integration strategies
4. Prepare the instructional environment
5. Revise integration strategies
Use in planning to ENHANCE the learning. Only use ICT’s if it will enhance the learning.
Engage, explore, explain, elaborate, evaluate. Helps teachers to develop inquiry learning approach. Use as a framework for appropriate lessons such as Science or History
WALT & WILF
WALT and WILF is a tool used to encourage students to be more actively involved in their learning. We are learning to… (WALT = the learning intention) and what I’m looking for (WILF = the success criteria)
Use WALT and WILF in all learning experiences and lesson plans to inform students of lesson objectives and outcomes.
Called a learning theory for a digital age, it seeks to explain complex learning in a rapidly changing social digital world. In the theory, learning occurs through connections within networks. Often associated with and proposes a perspective similar to Vygotsky’s ‘zone of proximal development’ Communication with students and teachers is vital, consider using appropriate ICT based communication.
A framework that categorises the content and questioning used. It goes from lower order thinking to higher order thinking. Create lessons based on Blooms and aim for more higher order thinking. Incorporate ICT’s to enhance the learning and challenge the student
Postman’s 5 things
Technology is always a trade-off.
Technology creates winners and losers
There is a powerful idea embedded in every technology
Technology is ecological, not additive
technology tends to become mythical
Always two sides to using technology. Checking a dictionary or using the spell check in a word document. Keep a balance
Toolbelt Toolbelt T. theory/TEST framework
Toolbelt theory is based in the concept that students must learn to assemble their own readily available collection of life solutions. They must learn to choose and use solutions appropriately, based in the task to be performed, the environment in which they find themselves, their skills and capabilities at that time, and the ever-changing universe of high and low-tech solutions and supports Use real world authentic learning experiences for kids, relative to their world.
Personal knowledge Management. A framework to develop a network of people and sources of information . It a process of filtering, creating and discerning focusing on being a better practitioner. Seek, Sense, Share.
