Tuesday's Class

This was a good exercise in thinking about the value of technology and its integration. The concept of Mindtools by Jonassen was helpful. I am a strong believer in using technology as a tool for creating, organizing, and communicating. In all these areas, the student is making a product, often one that ties in to the real world application of tools and concepts.

It was interesting how the different groups took such different approaches to assessing the the technology integration of the lessons. All were useful tools. Of course, it is important not to be overly judgmental about the use of technology. We will not jump right to transformation in every lesson. So it is important not to consider lessons in the other areas as failures. However, we could look at ways to move the lessons into the transformation area.
