What do others say about Educational Technology?

Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is most important. — Bill Gates

Technology provides us with powerful tools to try out different designs, so that instead of theories of education, we may begin to develop a science of education. But it cannot be an analytic science like physics or psychology; rather it must be a design science more like aeronautics or artificial intelligence. For example, in aeronautics the goal is to elucidate how different designs contribute to lift, drag maneuverability, etc. Similarly, a design science of education must determine how different designs of learning environments contribute to learning, cooperation, motivation, etc. –(Collins, 1992:24).

LESSON PLANS (ASSURE, SAMR and TPACK Model)

Models

–The ASSURE Model is an ISD (Instructional Systems Design) process that was modified to be used by teachers in the regular classroom  The ISD process is one in which teachers and trainers can use to design and develop the most appropriate learning environment for their students.  This process can be used in writing lesson plans and in improving teaching and learning.

–The Substitution-Augmentation-Modification-Redefinition (SAMR) Model offers a method of seeing how computer technology might impact teaching and learning.  It also shows a progression that adopters of educational technology often follow as they progress through teaching and learning with technology.

–The TPACK Framework builds on Shulman’s (1987, 1986) descriptions of PCK to describe how teachers’ understanding of educational technologies and PCK interact with one another to produce effective teaching with technology.

Dale’s Cone of Experience (A visual model that is composed of eleven (11) stages starting from concrete experiences at the bottom of the cone then it becomes more and more abstract as it reach the peak of the cone).

—The ASSURE Model (An instructional system or guideline that teachers can use to develop lesson plans which integrate the use of technology and media (Smaldino, Lowther & Russell, 2008).

—Digital Literacy (Refers to an individual’s ability to communicate, search for information, and use applications on various digital platforms like social media, email servers and search engine. While digital literacy initially focused on digital skills and stand-alone computers, its focus has shifted to network devices including the Internet and use of social media).
