Technology in the Curriculum by Mind Map: Technology in the Curriculum

1. Technology as a means to accommodate students with IEPs

2. Technology in the Language curriculum

3. Technology across the curriculum

4. Information and communications technologies

5. Helps with research collection and sorting

6. Technology as a tool for writing, editing and presenting (slideshow, video, etc.)

7. Outdated options: specifically gives examples of online museum archives and PowerPoint presentations as an appropriate use of tech (no learning programs, only research)

8. No suggestions on how to use technology effectively as a teacher (i.e. technology use directed toward students, not teachers)

9. Use of apps to track progress toward a goal (e.g. a nutrition app to track meals for Phys. Ed.)

10. Emphasis on the risks of internet use/safe use of technology/bullying

11. Documentation of trends in one's own teaching for the purpose of reflection (present only in curriculum documents that were updated recently)

12. "bring the global community into the local classroom" used across multiple documents

13. Track/document things that would be more complicated to communicate with a pen and paper (e.g. using an online math program like Geometer's Sketchpad where focus is on the process, not on data input)

14. Use to promote thinking through problems over memorization of concepts

15. Importance of engaging with how to use the internet in a way the promotes learning

16. Green: Elements present in the Language curriculum that are also present broadly across the curriculum Blue: Elements unique to the Language curriculum Purple: Elements that share commonality in other selected curriculum documents but were not touched upon in the Language curriculum

17. Watching and observing performances, lessons, etc. through videos and presentation (e.g. watching a dance performance on YouTube to enhance student understanding of the art form)

18. Media as an enhancement of pre-existing subjects (e.g. while media arts is not a strand in the arts curriculum, it can be used to work in tandem with visual, dramatic, and musical arts)

19. Allows for collaboration both in the classroom and with a larger community (e.g. pen pal communication with students at another school or in another place)
