Monitoring My GAME Plan Progress
Since I have developed me GAME plan, I have been more active in exploring different types of technologies. I have found some information that pertains to the school and county terms of conditions of the use of technology among students. This has been insightful in that I am discovering that not all teachers are adhering to the policies properly. I still need to explore the use of an active board for myself instead of reading about it or hearing about it from others. I would like to actually take the time and use one for myself to become acquainted with the technology and its terminology before using it in front of the students to increase my comfort level.
In order to modify my action plan, I would like to design ideas that I could use to better the use technology for my students. After learning about the various types of technologies, I would then like to learn how to effectively implement the technology into my daily lessons. After reading about the four types of assessments, I would also like to include how I can incorporate the use of technology that can support and enhance assessments.
I have learned that finding the necessary information is right at my fingertips. The literature is there to help me learn about technology as well as the responsibility of the use of technology. I have also learned that teachers are compelled to share their knowledge and are willing to help and to advise.
The new questions that have arisen after I have been learning about the technology and school use of technology policies is how can I successfully implement the use of technology in my math lessons and assessments? After I become more comfortable with how to use the technology properly to promote digital citizenship and responsibility and in designing and developing digital-age learning experiences and assessments, I would like to implement my findings. I would like to implement the four types of assessments and choose the most appropriate assessments rather than the traditional paper and pencil test. Therefore, how can I properly promote digital citizenship and responsibility and how can I appropriately implement the use of technology to enhance student learning in a math class?
