Complete the midcourse evaluation
Post your answers (1-2 sentences) to the following questions:
- What are some ways you can tell that you have successfully integrated technology into your lesson?
- What do you feel technology should accomplish in order to be a legitimate addition to your lesson?
- What indicators can tell you whether or not you have chosen an appropriate technology for your lesson?
You can tell that you've successfully integrated technology into our lesson by assessing the performance of the students. If the students perform better after a lesson taught with the technology, then the technology was successfully intergrated. If students became distracted by the technology, its not a successful integration.
In order to be a legitimate addition to a lesson, technology should be a functional and easy way to teach students something that is can be better understood because of it.
Indications of an appropriate technology for your lesson include the reaction of the children and the impact on their learning. If students are totally engaged in the lesson and seem to be learning the material, then I would say the technology is appropriate.
