Wednesday Frameworks to assess technology

I came away with a better understanding of how to use these technology evaluative tools. I believe that as a leader in technology, these tools can be used to help teachers better understand how they are integrating technology into the computer. Is learning occurring from technology or with technology? These tools must not be used as ways to evaluate teacher use of technology but rather as a formative tool to evaluate how the technology is being used by the students for learning.

I find that using the RAT technology assessment tool asists with how the technology is being used. Although, I need to spend more time wrapping my arms on the model so that I can help teachers and leaders understand how technology is being used and where do we need to move to.


We will continue grappling with RAT and other frameworks in CI 5345 (the second part of this class) if you choose to take that one in the fall.
