The I-4 concept

We've been thinking about the connection between instructional strategies and technology tools. Let's turn that around a little bit...

We started with the premise that technology is used basically for four reasons: information, images, interaction and inquiry. We listed all the different ways that technology fits into each of those categories. That was a good start.

But, now we have a little more information based on our own separate investigations, readings and experiences. Tonight the thought is that we need to begin to think about how the technologies we've categorized are/can be used to support student learning. So now, instead of listing the technologies we need to look at how teachers can apply the technologies to what we know about how students learn and what learning skills they need for their future.
