TIP  A technology Integration Model for TeachersPhase 1  Reflect on Technological, Pedagogical Content KnowledgeThe situation:
Year 10 Commerce assignment 
has traditionally been a basic affair. Students would have somesome research using the text book, and produced some sort of advisory documents. In all reality,this task is more about finding and repeating information, rather that defending or explaining it.What I wanted to do was find a technology that I could use for students to narrate or annotate adocument that I provided, so that they could demonstrate their understanding.
hat is my knowledge of this technology?
A friend recommended that I use a technology called Voice Thread(http://www.voicethread.com) to do this task, I had heard of it, but not used it in an assessment situtation.
hat is the relative advantage of using Voice Thread
Voice Thread allows voice, video and text annotation of slide shows. It allows students to seewhat others are thinking and saying, allowing peer scaffolding of learning. It is an online tool that requires no new software
How can Voice Thread assist in these issues?
As with Google Documents, Voice Thread allows for the collection of sharing of informationonline without the need for flash drives or printing out documents. More importantly, it forcesstudents to speak rather than write  a vital 21
Century skill (communication)
hat are relative advantages of Voice Thread in this context?
Demonstrate student understanding by responding to a prompt 
Allows archiving of student work (export) for later reflection and reference
Allows students to see, hear and write solutions to problems  allowing them to choosethe method they think suits them
Allows multiple views on one question  students seek to add to the information not simply replicate it 
ses simple tools and requires only basic technology skill learning
as online demonstrations and tutorials (no new resources needed)
Is the relative advantage worth the effort?
Yes, students have access to webcams and microphones, and seem adept at commenting onprompt information.
Phase 2: Deciding on Objectives and Assessments
ow Will I Know Students
ave Learned?Criteria EvidenceWhat outcomes do I expect of students afterthe instruction to show me they have learned?To have placed voice, video and text ontothe prompt providedWhat is the best way for me to assess students'learning (e.g., written tests, products)?To collect work from students online in anencapsulated form.Do the assessment instruments (e.g., tests,rubrics) exist or do I have to develop them?This would be a formative assessment,that would be used to scaffold studentstowards a large, summative task.
Phase 3  Designing Integration Strategies
What Teaching Strategies Will Work Best Criteria EvidenceWhat outcomes do I expect of students afterthe instruction to show me they have learned?
se the inquiry process, problem-solvingstrategies, and resources to synthesizeand communicate information using voiceand text using technologyWill the instruction be single subject orinterdisciplinary?SingleWill students work as individuals, pairs, smallor large groups, whole class, a combination?IndividualShould activities be directed, constructivist, ora combination of these?DirectedWhat strategies should I use to encouragefemale and minority student involvement?Students are encouraged to view the work of others and to add their responses tothe body of work (social inclusion)What sequence of activities should I teach? Voice Thread will be explored bydemonstration, students will conduct anin class activity, then be asked tocomplete the Voice Thread activity.Will students have enough time to learn thetechnologies before I begin grading?Yes, they will have completed severalwriting tasks before grading, and hadopportunities to share documents.Do I have demonstrations of equipment andthe software skills students will need?Yes, resources are available online fromVoice Thread on how to use it
