Technology Standard (1): Technology Operations and Concepts
The attached artifact is the iPhone that can be successfully used in the learning environment. It can be a very valuable means of education as it helps students save their time when looking for information for assignments, always get the necessary help from tutors through the Internet, and use various applications to enhance their learning opportunities.
Using the iPhone for educational purposes can open access to many facilities, such as online libraries and databases, as well as online lectures or look up campus maps. The artifact provides the opportunity both for teachers and students to keep abreast of the growth in technology knowledge and develop the necessary skills to operate the knowledge in the educational environment.
The usage of the Technology Standard (1) provides the necessity to learn more about modern technologies and innovations. Thus, I will use them to organize learning activities, for example, using avatars, social software, and Peer-to-peer technologies can help work out effective training strategies.
Technology Standard (2): Planning & Designing Learning Environments
Technology Hardware and Software provide additional help when organizing and planning a learning environment. The artifact demonstrates how technologies can be used to meet different students’ needs, assess their level of knowledge, and plan for the management of technology resources to organize the learning of parts of speech.
The attached artifact demonstrates how teachers should plan and organize students’ activities to enhance their understanding of the parts of speech and how the usage of technology can be applied to adopt the assignments to students with different levels of knowledge.
I will use PowerPoint presentations as one of the ways to assess students, Multimedia tools to broader the educational activities, and e-mailing as a means of communication and controlling of student’s progress.
Technology Standard (3): Teaching, Learning, and the Curriculum
The attached artifact demonstrates how teachers can use technology to address the content of the lesson and make learning more creative.
The PowerPoint presentation is an effective means to develop student’s creativity, skills of working with hardware and software and raise their interest in the subjects. It can be used when learning languages, as well as other subjects.
I will use PowerPoint presentations to raise the interest of students in my lesson, assess them and perform individual, as well as group tasks to develop skills of teamwork. Also, it can be used to prepare students for incorporating other technologies in the classroom.
Technology Standard (4): Assessment and Evaluation
The artifact, “Presentation Rubric” demonstrates how students’ projects (PowerPoint) presentations should be assessed. It presents a detailed explanation of how a teacher should assess every aspect of a student’s work.
The artifact serves as a great example of how the assessment must be organized to meet the standard. In a structured and appropriate manner, it demonstrates how teachers and students should approach the assessment of tasks performed with the help of technology resources, interpret results, and assess their skills. This approach can be applied not only to PowerPoint presentations but to working with other applications as well.
My further goals are to use the approach provided in the artifact. Introduce into the teaching practice working and assessing students with the help of technology, and work out detailed requirements to tasks that presuppose using technologies so that students know what is expected from them.
Technology Standard (5): Productivity and Professional Practice
The attached artifact perfectly demonstrates how technology can be used to enhance the productivity and professional practice of teachers. It also demonstrates how technology can be applied to self-assessment and communication with peers and partners.
To meet this standard, the artifact can be successfully applied. For example, the teacher can make a comparative analysis of his/her performance when creating a table of performed professional practices. Thus, he/she will be able to evaluate the performance, define future goals and strategies for future professional development.
My future goals related to this standard is to use technologies to assess my accomplishments, as well as the accomplishment of my students. Application of the technology to increase my productivity and define strategies for life-time learning to constantly develop my skills and reflect professional practices which will allow me to know what I should aspire to.
Technology Standard (6): Social, Ethical, Legal, and Human Issues
The artifact provided perfectly demonstrates how social, health ethical, and human issues deal with the use of technology in the learning environment. It demonstrates that excessive use of technology can cause some problems with health. Thus, the artifact shows that the approach to the use of technology in class should be taken into consideration and teachers must know the techniques how to prevent health problems and organize learning activities so that technology was not a threat to the students’ health.
Meeting this standard is essential as we live in a multicultural society and technology should contribute to communication and affirm diversity. In this light, all students should have equitable access to the technology used in class to contribute to their learning activities.
My future goals are to use technology to enhance communication between students with diverse backgrounds and abilities, as well as work out effective practices which will take into consideration health, social and human issues to create a healthy and friendly educational environment.
