I have been thinking a lot lately about all the things that I need to check for as I am planning a lesson. There is a lot to check for! Here is an infographic that can be used as a tool for checking for best practices in lessons. It is not a comprehensive list though as things like presentation design and technology incorporation are not explicitly stated here but implied through things like “engagement.”
Inspired by one of the teachers I work with, I have begun to think about “Teaching tech with a purpose.” Not skipping around from cool thing to the next cool thing, but really identifying what they need to know at that particular place in there education. Technology standards are coming in our district, but they are not here yet. So in the meantime, here is an article that might provide some insight.
Also, we might consider thinking about the NETS – for students as we plan what we will teach.
Here is a link to a webinar by Simple K12 that discusses how to simplify grading using digital tools.
