SOPHIA GROSS (GHI) PS I


Goals/objectives:
Increase my familiarity with and ability to integrate technology meaningfully into
classroom instruction in order to engage students and appeal to diverse learning
modalities.
Timeline:
November 16, 2015 December 16, 2015
Colleagues/mentors:
TA, PS I colleagues at practicum school
Action plan:
Visit educational websites and research technology resources
o pay special attention to those with interactive online activities;
Observe classroom and school implemented technology programs and ask questions
about their use and success
Practice with researched and observed technologies to proficiently operate their
programs/applications, etc. and work toward mastery
o watch/engage with tutorials for technology software, programs and applications
Create lessons (across subject areas) that, to varying degrees (through experimentation
and feedback) integrate technology.
*Keep in mind: PURPOSE of technology use in lessons*
Indicators and measures of achievement:
Section in logbook created to catalogue technology integration lessons and personal
reflection on the successes and challenges of the lesson.
o Also: ask for student feedback, reflect on teacher associates and university
consultants observations of technology integration
Track frequency, usage, variation in technology-related activities in order to build
repertoire of engaging, implementable lesson-types
Links to KSAs:
#2) the structure of the Alberta education system:
o teacher responsibility to integrate technology into lessons
#5) all students can learn, albeit at different rates and in different ways
o strive to meet student needs and interests in technology implementation; observe
successes and make adjustments
#6) the purposes of short, medium and long-term range planning:
o initiating action plan and reflection on levels of success for future planning and
improvements
#9) there are many approaches to teaching and learning
o PURPOSE of technology is considered when attending to uses in engaging with
core content
#10) the functions of traditional and electronic teaching/learning technologies
o research, implementation/experimentation, and reflection of technologies
#15) the importance of career-long learning
o research, implementation/experimentation, and reflection of technologies update
#16)the importance of guiding their actions with a personal, overall vision of the purpose
of teaching
