Technology Integration Frame Work
It was interesting to see how the software evaluation was different depending on the frame work you were using. We used the NET.S and the RAT frame works to evaluate the software. While the NET.S seemed to indicate that the webquest we were looking at seemed to be a high level thinking project, the RAT indicated that it was, at the best, this webquest was a middle level thinking project. I have used RAT for the past week with software I had to evaluate forr my work and it has worked well. I was able to show people why the software they wanted was a good inquiry based item or not. This has helped us in ordering quality software. Why use RAT? I think it is a very simple frame work that even non-tech know peole can understand. However, this brings up a question? Which frame work is the best to use when looking at technology? How do you determine this? I like RAT, because it is simple to use, but am I missing a better frame work?
