In an earlier post we shared here a few months ago, we talked about the differences between technology use and technology integration and we argued that integrating technology in instruction is a principled process that requires deep and reflective thinking about the whys behind such integration as well as the learning outcomes expected from such integration.
The visual we have for you today will assist you to better integrate technology in your classroom projects. This visual, created by UBC Learning Commons, outlines the basic steps in the process of integrating technology in your class. The first step in this process is to identify the requirements of the project for which you want to use technology. Then comes the phase where you need to consider the skills you possess or planning to develop to carry out this digital task. The third phase is where you start looking for the specific technological tool to use and the last step is about finding resources.
You can also watch this video to learn more about the aforementioned steps. Enjoy
