Assessment Tools for Evaluating the
Effectiveness of Technology Integration
To ensure that students meet the learning
objectives, teachers must use many forms of
assessment to evaluate student performance.
 Traditional assessment
 Alternative assessment
21
Alternative assessment
 Authentic assessment (performance based
assessment)
 Project-based assessment
 Portfolio assessment
 Checklist
 Rating scale
 Rubric
22
Teacher observation
 Observe motivation
 Observe how long students work on an objective
23
Evaluating Technology-Based
Student Projects
24
Evaluating Technology-Based Student
Projects
 Integrated learning systems (ILS to automatically track
student progress, e.g, saving and analyzing discussion boards)
 Assessment rubric to evaluate students’
presentations, videos, and collaborations
25
Evaluating Technology-Based Student
Projects
Evaluating content
 Based on your standards and benchmarks
 Review punctuation, grammar, spelling, coverage of
material, presentation of the material in a logical
order, citations, references
26

Integration Strategies




Teachers must become facilitators of learning
Use technology to enhance learning environment
Put technology at point of instruction
Many mixtures of technology
30
One-Computer Classroom
 Use the computer for classroom presentations and
demonstrations
 Introduce new concepts
 Students use to present assignments, projects, and
research activities to the entire class
 Maintain class records, create presentations and
projects, do research, and communicate with other
teachers
31
Multicomputer Classroom
 Remember, one-computer classroom strategies
also apply to a classroom with two or more
computers.
 Multiple learning centers
 Create specialized centers such as a video center,
a listening center, and a digital production center.
32
Integration Strategies
Computer Labs/Media Centers
 All students have hands-on experience
 Often used to teach technology skills or subjectspecific skills
 Integrate computer-related skills into subjectdirected curriculum areas
 Example: Web scavenger hunt
33
34
Curriculum Integration Activities
 Teachers who integrate the Internet successfully
are using it in ways that engage students in
problem solving, locating research information,
and developing higher- order thinking skills.
 A curriculum resource page is a teacher- created
document containing hyperlinks to teacherselected Web sites that assist in teaching contentspecific curriculum objectives.
35
36
Curriculum Integration Activities
 Interactive Lessons and Assessment
 A learner response system includes a software that is
installed on a teacher’s computer, a wireless receiver,
and student hand-held infrared transmitters that collect
student responses or data in real time
 Today, teachers may receive online advice from other
educators by joining educational mailing lists, forums,
newsgroups, discussion
37
Creating Lesson and Project Plans
Examples of subjectspecific and
interdisciplinary teachercreated curriculum
integration activities.
Each of these lesson or
project plans is centered on
a focus question and uses
a combination of learning
processes and teaching
strategies to assist in the
delivery of the instructional
process.
38
Language arts integration
 Reading, writing, listening, viewing, speaking, and
literature

Finding Funds to Support Classroom
Technology Integration
 Many school districts do not have sufficient
funding for technology
 If school cannot provide funds, turn to the public,
and private industry, and the government for
grants
47
Finding Funds to Support Classroom
Technology Integration
 Grants
 Funds provided by a funding source that transfers
money, equipment, or services to the grantee
 Grantee is the teacher, school, or organization
 Sources: Department of Education, federal
sources, foundations, and corporations
Chapter 7: Evaluating Educational Technology and Integration Strategies

Finding Funds to Support Classroom
Technology Integration
 Grants
 Request for proposal (RFP)
 Grant proposal
 Look for opportunities on the Web
