Technology Innovation in Education – Lesson Plan and Narrative Report.
Part 1 Create an exemplar lesson plan that explicitly demonstrates how implementing the technologies you have chosen will look in practice. **The chosen technology is Book Creator- Referenced in the previous paper**. Your lesson plan should apply across content areas and across grade levels. The lesson plan does not need to be articulated using Understanding by Design or other formal lesson presentation formats. Rather, you are designing vignettes that provide sufficient information for other teachers and stakeholders to see how your technology could be implemented in a variety of classrooms. Part 2 In a 2-3 page narrative, address the following: • Evaluate the impact of professional collaborations on the design of the lessons. • Evaluate how the technology integrated into a lesson plan aligns to both content and technology standards. • Explain how the lesson plan will promote the safe, legal, and ethical use of digital information and technology. • Analyze how the technology integrated into each lesson plan will support diversity and equity. o Think about the variety of student needs that exist within an educational setting. Specifically consider cultural background, developmental and readiness levels, language differences, speed of learning, experiential knowledge, and so on. o In your lesson(s), demonstrate how the technology can be used to meet those needs. • Analyze some of the struggles and questions teachers may have in implementing the technology. These concerns may have emerged from professional collaborations. o Address those common concerns within your lesson(s), demonstrating how the technology can be successfully implemented to meet the needs of diverse learners. • Explain how you would use each lesson plan to promote educational innovation to decision makers and other stakeholders, such as parents and community members. Furthermore- to better describe the above, each criteria must be met • Designs exemplar lesson plan(s) that align to standards and promote the safe, legal, and ethical use of digital information and technology and justifies that alignment with evidence from the professional literature. • Evaluate the impact of professional collaboration on the design of exemplar lesson plans. • Evaluates how the technology integrated into exemplar lesson plans will support diversity and equity and cites evidence of strengths and weaknesses of the technology in accomplishing this objective. • Justifies how embedded support within the lesson plans will address challenges to teacher implementation of the proposed technology by citing specific evidence. • Evaluates how exemplar lesson plans will support the promotion of technology innovation to stakeholders and supports the evaluation with evidence from literature.
