Active Learning, Adaptation Level

Conventional independent use of tools; some student choice and exploration

      Extended Descriptors

Students. Students work independently with technology tools in conventional ways. Students are developing a conceptual understanding of technology tools and begin to engage with these tools.

Teacher. The teacher allows for some student choice and exploration of technology tools. Because the students are developing a conceptual and procedural knowledge of the technology tools, the teacher does not need to guide students step-by-step through activities. Instead, the teacher acts as a facilitator toward learning, allowing for greater student engagement with technology tools.

Setting. Technology tools are available on a regular basis.
