Last week I tweeted out questions to ask BEFORE integrating digital tools. Here is the full series of questions. What would you add?
Start with Backwards Design . . .
- What do students need to know, understand, and be able to do?
(curriculum + learning goals) What is our purpose (student voice + teacher)?
- What will you accept as evidence of learning?
(assessment tasks + methods + analog/ digital tools)
- What knowledge and skills will students need to achieve the desired results?
(pedagogy + resources: analog/ digital)
Continue the conversation . . .
- How will the integration of tech augment, modify or redefine the learning task(s)? How will the tech help students learn?
- What is the role of the learner with regards to tech integration?
- How will the tech empower students to take control of their own learning?
- How will the tech-integrated experience build 21st Century Competencies?
- How will the tech broaden student perspectives/ encourage broader community participation?
- Is the tech-integrated experience “real-life”? How long will this tech be relevant?
- How will you overcome unforeseen challenges?
