4 Models of Technology Integration
The SAMR model assists teachers in selecting, evaluating, and integrating technology in their classrooms.
At the substitution level, analog technology is replaced by digital technology, such as using word editor to compose writing.
At the modification level, students use technology to redesign a learning task. For example, students can create digital portfolios to display their learning.
The redefinition level uses technology to transform learning tasks that would have not been possible otherwise. For instance, using Skype to communicate with students across the world in a live discussion.
Hack is a model of innovative instruction and gradual release of tasks.
This model begins with tasks being highly structured and allows students to see how to use technology in a managed setting.
Students are allowed choices on how to demonstrate their learning as apart of the gradual release from the teacher.
Knowledge-centered instruction develops students to be independent learners that think across the curriculum.
Technology Integration Matrix (TIM)
This model has 5 levels of technology integration that include the following levels: entry, adoption, adaption, infusion, and transformation.
The characteristics of the learning environment are: active, collaborative, constructive, authentic, and goal-directed.
Students use technology tools to link learning activities to the world beyond the instructional setting rather than working on decontextualized assignments.
Students use technology tools to set goals, plan activities, monitor progress, and evaluate results rather than simply completing assignments without reflection.
Content Knowledge is what you as a teacher are trying to convey to your students. It's the "what" in TPACK.
Technological Knowledge is the ability to use software and a computer. It is the" how" in how technology is used.
Pedagogical Knowledge is how to teach or deliver the content to your students. Just because you are an expert in a subject, doesn't mean you know how to teach it.
PCK is where pedagogical and content knowledge meet and allow you to teach that specific content knowledge to students.
