Authentic Learning, Adaptation Level
Independent use in activities connected to students’ lives; some student choice and exploration
Students. Students begin to use technology tools on their own in activities that have meaning beyond the instructional setting.
Teacher. The teacher creates instruction that purposefully integrates technology tools and provides access to information on community and world issues. The teacher directs the choice of technology tools but students use the tools on their own, and may begin to explore other capabilities of the tools.
Setting. The setting allows for guided student access to a limited range of information, data, and source materials beyond the instructional setting.
