Portfolio Technology Integration Matrix

Introduction
The goal is to promote technology integration that is seamless and that adds significant value to students learning of core
curriculum (language arts, math, social studies, and science content). You will investigate theoretical and practical issues
surrounding the use of multimedia, email, Internet resources, educational software, and hardware within K-12 classrooms. The
Technology Integration Matrix is to assist preservice educators in making connections between theories, resources, content, and
pedagogy.
Learning Objective
Students will analyze projects completed in class on the Technology Integration Matrix to demonstrate the relationships between
theories, content, technology, and pedagogy.
Course Objectives
Instruction
2. Integrate technology into curriculum and pedagogy for ALL students.
Issues
4. Describe appropriate uses of technologies (Internet, multimedia, communication tools, etc.) in learning environments.
Skills Development
5. Apply information literacy skills (including searching and evaluation strategies) while using electronic resources.
6. Locate, analyze, and contribute to information from Web 2.0 sources.
Teaching with Technology
12.Research, teach, and publish ways to use innovative technology in education.
Directions
1. Read all information (introduction, objectives, explanations, the matrix)
2. Compare the concept, project, or method to the matrix.
3. Fill in how and why the concept, project, or method applies to the theory and standard and provide suggestions for use.
4. Write a five sentence reflection describing more detail or providing clarification for the information you filled in on the
matrix.
5. Load the matrix to the appropriate dropbox in BlackBoard and post it to the matrix page on your ePortfolio.
Explanation of Standards
www.cde.state.co.us
Colorado Academic Standards were created by the Colorado Department of Education to increase student performance in K-12
education and success post high school. The standards create accountability and are a topical organization of material in multiple
content areas. Every grade level has several standards for each content area designed to provide clarity and direction.
The standard elements include:

Prepared Graduate Competencies


Standard

Grade Level Expectations or High School Expectations


Evidence Outcomes
21st Century Skills and Readiness Competencies

Explanation of ISTE, NETS-S, and NETS-T


www.iste.org
ISTE is The International Society for Technology in Education. ISTE created the national educational technology standards for
teachers and students in K-12 education to assist learning in a digital society, because technology has forever changed the way
teaching and learning occur.
The benefits of using the ISTE Standards include:
Improving higher-order thinking skills, such as problem solving, critical thinking and creativity
Preparing students for their future in a competitive global job market
Designing student-centered, project-based and online learning environments
Guiding systemic change in our schools to create digital places of learning
Inspiring digital age professional models for working, collaborating and decision making
Explanation of Educational Theories
Education theory is the theory of the purpose, application and interpretation of education and learning. It largely an umbrella
term, being comprised of a number of theories, rather than a single explanation of how we learn, and how we should teach.
Rather, it is affected by several factors, including theoretical perspective and epistemological position.
There is no one, clear, universal explanation of how we learn and subsequent guidebook as to how we should teach. Rather, there
are a range of theories, each with their background in a different psychological and epistemological tradition. To understand
learning then, we have to understand the theories, and the rationale behind them.

You may agree or disagree with theories presented, but knowing and understanding if they have any value to add to your
pedagogy, and if they are in alignment with your teaching and technology integration philosophies, is vital to your preparation for
becoming an educator. If you are unfamiliar with the concepts and theories presented, please take the time to follow the links for
further information.
Explanation of Differentiation
Technology can be the great equalizer. In a classroom of 30 students, how will you meet the diverse needs of students?
Technology is one method to assist you in making this process a bit easier. Differentiation is modifying instruction to help
students with diverse academic needs and learning styles to master the same academic content using engaging techniques and
methods. As you complete projects for this class, you need to think of how they can be adjusted for gifted and talented students,
students with physical disabilities, and students with learning disabilities.

Reflection: Most of these lesson plans I found on Pinterest, in which I think it will take some personal experience and some trial
and error before I can fully come up with creative and effective lesson plans on my own. I feel as though the e-portfolio is going to
be very helpful in my classroom because having the students post their works on a site where everyone can view it; will more
than likely make students work hard and theyll want to post something that they are proud of. I will always post examples on my
e-portfolio for my students to feed off of and gain creativity from. On my homepage, I will also have links to all the students eportfolios so that way students can easily access their classmates to get ideas and comment on their peers work as well. The eportfolio will be very helpful to see how well my students grow and it will also show how well I grow as a teacher as well. Whats
great is that students will have all they need in one area on their e-portfolio that is. Ill have each student create folders/tabs as to
where they can access all their information such as their notes, projects and conversations between other students; school
related of course. By using this technology integration matrix will further impact my TPACK because it will always show which
ones Im using and which ones Im not while also showing how it can be helpful depending on the lesson plan that I am planning
to do.
