Levels of Technology Integration - Research-based
Surveys can become irrelevant. What is relevant is the WAY each teacher utilizes the technology they have available to them for promoting higher-order thinking, ethical communication, collaboration, research, curiosity, and creativity.
Goal 1: Each Teacher will upgrade their instruction at least one LoTI Level a year (hopefully more than one) by demonstrating awareness of the ISTE Standards:
Goal 2: Each Principal is aware of what makes a significant difference in student success using the appropriate Technology Tools at the appropriate Level of Integration.
Goal 3: Each student is motivated by a learning environment that incorporates Technology Tools at the appropriate level of engagement.
(1) Current research has identified student success rates to be positively affected by LoTI levels 4b - 6. Below these levels, there is effectively no difference in student success rates. This means that simply using technology to collect assessment data does not guarantee higher levels of success.
(2) Students using technology to collaborate outside the classroom through research, creativity, and problem-solving have the highest overall success across multiple domains.
