PART THREE: MEANINGFUL LEARNING WITH TECHNOLOGY
What was the big idea or takeaway you had from the Meaningful Learning with Technology chapter? Was there anything that surprised you? My favorite takeaway?
This quote from the Jonassen text (p. 2): “In order for students to learn meaningfully, they must be willfully engaged in a meaningful task.”
I strongly recommend you memorize it. Seriously, say it with me: “In order for students to learn meaningfully, they must be willfully engaged in a meaningful task.”
Each group has been assigned a characteristic of meaningful learning with technology. Let’s watch a video of a learning activity and see if we can identify any of the characteristics.
If you are going to memorize anything this semester (besides the quote) – I would strongly recommend that you memorize these 5 characteristics. You’ll be seeing and using them all semester long . . .
- Read the introduction to the National Educational Technology plan. You can find the plan in our Readings Dropbox folder. Be prepared to talk about it in class on Thursday.
- And remember: “In order for students to learn meaningfully, they must be willfully engaged in a meaningful task.”
