Goal-Directed Learning, Transformation Level
Extensive and higher order use of tools to plan and monitor
Students. Students engage in ongoing metacognitive activities, and work on self-directed goals, at a level only possible with the support of technology. Students are empowered to extend the use of technology tools and have greater ownership and responsibility for learning.
Teacher. The teacher creates a rich learning environment in which students regularly engage in higher-order planning, monitoring, evaluative, and reflective activities that may be impossible to achieve without technology. The teacher sets a context in which students are encouraged to use technology tools in innovative ways to direct and reflect on their own learning.
Setting. The setting includes robust access to a rich variety of technology tools and online resources to allow students many choices in how they independently set goals, plan, monitor, evaluate, and reflect upon their work.
